Re: Receiver Locking cams

The front of the receiver - at the muzzle? The cam that holds the flash hider holding lever and barrel bushing in place? Those are pins with hollow ends. You'll need some help. Put a center punch straight up in a vise, hold the pin in the muzzle on top of the center punch, use another center punch f...

Re: Fancy new FAL grip stick

Not sure what's going on. None of the pictures are showing up. I'm working on it.

UPDATE Nov. 26, 3:25 AM: There was a corrupt file in the system software which has been replaced. Pictures are working again now.

You had the opportunity to edit your message for the first hour or so after posting.

Just post another message and put the pictures in it. I'll delete the first message later.

Re: Another great image!

This board crashed again. Apparently the web server had been screwing up for a while. The board was recovered with a mix of pieces from different backups. If you still have the pics, I'll put them where back in the messages they are associated with. Or you can repost and tell me which old messages t...

Re: Yugo M52 Lafette

Just so more people know, I've translated the 186 page M53 repair manual, and besides the gun information, it contains the complete lafette repair information with exploded diagrams of all the parts, with details about the belt loader too.

Re: Latest board troubles

The board was restored from a few different sources, some of them may have been from last January. It's my guess that when everything matches up, it made it where the board is now. If some of the pieces are missing from last January, maybe it can only work starting at where all the pieces sync, whic...
