Re: Well...be honest...i can take it

You can try really hard, but you can't own them all. I have only a few items, but at least they are the ones I've always dreamed of. It's easy to take on too many projects, and then they all become unfinished.

Re: Well...be honest...i can take it

Regardless of condition versus price, are you happy with the rifle you bought? To many "expert gun collectors" are totally focused on making money off their collections. Most of those guys are on other gun forums, but few "collectors only" are here. The guys here shoot their guns...

Re: M53 vs MG3 camming piece

I fitted a Bundeswehr MG-3 camming piece to my MG-42 before I sold it, and it worked perfectly. I won't guarantee that mixing German and Yugo parts will work. There are tolerance differences in in many parts between the two countries. That may or may not apply to the camming pieces, which are more p...

Re: Red Wing, MN Machinegun Shoot 2013

Of course there is! It's too much fun not to. It'll be some Saturday in June, like always. I poll the members for input as to which Saturday is best via the event email list. I'll need your email address if you're wanting to come, TC.

EVERYTHING at IMA is horrendously overpriced. Make huge profits. It's what they do.

Re: Break-Free Waterproofing?

I'm eventually going to get a rifle for my wife, and am looking for an AR or AK to duracoat into the Hello Kitty Carbine in pink and white, just like that one in the internet pics. If anyone has an inexpensive rifle they want to sell as a candidate for a custom job like that, let me know.

Re: Break-Free Waterproofing?

WD-40 does not contain graphite. It does contain solvents that don't evaporate completely, and leave a gummy residue, thick in places where the solvents don't run off, that will gunk up the works of any moving parts. Once a part is loose and free moving, get the WD-40 off and lubricate with oil. No...

Re: Break-Free Waterproofing?

If you spray on WD40, make sure to wipe it all off. It's very nasty crap when it dries. I'd compare it to dried honey. So thick it's not even gooey, and nearly impossible to get off once it dries. Never spray it anywhere that you can't wipe it off if you want to. Great stuff for a wet ignition syst...

Red Wing, MN Machinegun Shoot 2013

Hi guys! It's been a slow winter event wise, so I finally got around to posting the video for last year's Red Wing, MN Machine Gun Shoot. This was our 7th annual event, and we had FOUR vehicles this year, and lots of bowling pins of course. Here are a couple pictures of my friends John and Darlene (...

Re: Bluing Specialist Wanted

The prices they offer are very good. What finish of gun bluing that they offer which would be the closest to original finish for k98 Mausers or other WWII German guns? You don't want a "Russian Captured" flat black appearance, but you don't want to polish off the milling marks from the ste...
