I just got mine delivered yesterday. I'm a long time Lansky user, this Worksharp tool blows my Lansky set away. The choice of angle adjustments alone is worth the money. They could, maybe, use a few more grits of sharpening stone, but the 320 and 600 grit diamond stones worked fine. And the...
The front sight is held on by a pin. Push the pin out, remove the sight, take off the front barrel band with bayonet lug, replace with repro type 1 band, found cheap on line, reset front sight. Under a hundred bucks total, not safe act controlled from that point on.
The Forster press will make the most of those high quality dies. Been using mine for years. Some prefer a separate crimp die, I have done seating and crimping in one set up for a long time without problems. Good choices for your bench!
I've got to disagree with you there! Bear, cooked right is good food! Stew, even roasted on a spit over a camp fire, more then once actually, don't recall anyone not liking it. A couple folks got a little "thoughtful" about it when they found out what they ate but nobody complained about how...
Get a Mighty Armory decapping die. I hit a few Berdan primed cases in a reloding session, punched out the primer and made a nice centered hole at the same time. The pocket needed swaging afterwards, military cases do.
Huge mistake right there. Now the left has a Trump wants to cancel the election drum to beat through November.
With the economy suffering, all the lying about covid going on, and "summer of love" events going on in cities all over the place, there's enough to deal with. Biden is capable of...
I recall a mix, equal 3rds of peroxide, alcohol and Murphy's Oil soap. Cleaned blackpowder well, just don't cork it up tight and leave in the sunshine, the rumor mill claimed a few exploding bottles.
2 to 1 Ballistol and water is the right mix, works great.
At one time having a NYS pistol license took care of the need for the instant check and then NY screwed it up. Line 29 brings the license item up. Is it possible ATF recognizes NY pistol licenses again?
I agree with the Lansky sharpener, but occassionally use a ceramic stick set I got from A.G. Russel to refresh an edge quickly. But then I like the Ken Onion work sharp system and Arkansas stones too! Everything has it's uses.
Would your son like a historic reproduction? I have a Rev-war period officers sword in need of a new home. It could use a good polishing, but sword and scabbard are in good shape. If interested let me know. I'd like to see it somewhere it would be appreciated.
