  1. I purchase some 8mm 5 plus years ago with the square flake powder. The brass was no good. Too many split cases. I have forgotten the headstamp info BUT it was original factory ammo. Paid a nickel a round. Tore it all down for components, Sold the real nice bullets for 5 cents. Scrapped the brass. still using the powder in 30-06 reloads for my BAR only. Just my experience.
  2. FS Lanchester SMG C&R

    British Lanchester MK1*, C&R. Very clean gun. Reblued because the British black paint was wearing off. Runs 100% with good ammo. comes with 7 Lanchester magazines and some spare parts. $13,000.
  3. Take the gun out and shoot a few mags to make sure it work before modifying it. It pays to make sure the base gun works properly. How many times have you heard the story of the gun that didn't work. the person purchases a gun and changes parts. then he test fires it and it doesn't work.Try it before mods.
  4. H&K FA Sear with 223 Host

    Sear and Gun is sold
  5. Belt-fed Question

    Check out the cost and availability of ammo. Find out what caliburs and ammo the gun can be converted to. Ammo is a big cost of shooting the belt fed gun. I have a browning and a Vickers. I shoot the vickers a lot because I can get and shoot 7.62 x 54R in the gun. Read Mikes post above. good information.
  6. Advice On AK/ Krinks Please!

    I own a full size AK47 in 7.62 x 39 fixed stock. I have shot the krinks in 7.62. It is a wild ride. I have shot AK74's in 5.54. Feels like an M16. My opinions. I am sticking with the 7.62 fixed stock 16 inch barrel. You are buying the gun for you, not for the bystanders. Go to the Creek this fall and try a few different ones at the rental range. I have only broken a recoil spring since 1986. Barrel is missing two inches of rifling.
  7. Idea on price

    Try Graff's. They have all sorts of reloading supplies, New. Look at brass and bullet prices there.
  8. H&K FA Sear with 223 Host

    Yes, It is a multi calibur sear. The paperwork says NA.
  9. Any gun with a hammer drop safety need a firing pin lock or a block. P38's have a lock. stories of it failing and emptying the mag are around. Walther PPK has a block that prevents the hammer from hitting the firing pin.
  10. H& K sear, Qualified Manufacturing, Caliber on paperwork NA. Host is a Century arms pistol, 10 inch barrel, With stock. Includes 4 H&K 25 round mags Runs flawlessly with Tula ammo and my reloads. Others not tested. $30,000 plus shipping.
  11. I have a colt Model 1928 tripod that I am disassembling to clean and restore. How do I remove the top half from the bottom half? There is a big bolt at the front of the top half that looks like it should come out and release the two halves. the bolt rattles and moves about an eighth of an inch. What next?
  12. What to know about mp40s

    When you reassemble the gun, make sure the rear of the recoil spring is in the mounting hole of the lower receiver. If not assembled properly, the little tubes of the recoil spring assembly will bend when the bolt is pulled back.
