    Hello from Ireland

    rmn82, Thanks for the info on Firearms certificates. I'm glad that we don't have to give all that info to the police like you do. I guess in ways we do give some of it when we fill out a 4473 to purchase a modern firearm. Although ATF dose not have a centralized system to use that info, they...

    southern AZ active clubs?

    Hi John, The Pima county range I use the most is the one on Harrison road, right near the fairgrounds (southern most location). I think the county made a great decision to put a range there. It's near all the other loud stuff, Race tracks, concert venue, and model airplane field. Hopefully...

    Hello from Ireland

    Welcome rmn82, Glad to hear that you have not been disarmed like the rest of the UK. I'm in Arizona where there are few restrictive gun laws. Matter of fact almost anyone but felons and crazy people can own and carry concealed here. We like to say " An armed society is a polite society"...

    southern AZ active clubs?

    Hi mike, The pima county range is the best use of tax payer dollars I have seen in awhile. No club to join, costs $8.00 to shoot all day. The range is from 5 yards out to 200. It is new, clean, safe and well run. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and shooters themselves. I have met lots...

    Identify this lock and some other parts on a new to me rifle?

    Thumper thanks for a well written informative post. The photos you included really bring life to the post. I'm now going to have to look into a camera. Did you have to file much to clean up the saw cut? What type of file and from which direction did you work? As a machinist by trade, I say...

    New Wheellock

    I to am totally jealous. I really like the way the smith did the entry/exit of the barrel pins (I'm assuming that is what the stars are, please advise). I will try to do something similar with the musket I'm working on now. (Ref barrel pins in blind holes, removal?)

    barrel pins in blind holes, removal?

    Barrel removal info: After giving much thought, and receiving a lot of good ideas from forum members, I have removed the pins. I braced the stock with wood, used 2 parallel clamps on either side of the entry holes. Then drove the pins out the other side. Thanks S.Kenton, Scota4570 & Billy Boy...

    barrel pins in blind holes, removal?

    I find it very funny that the phone changed under the barrel to uber the barrel, cause loosely translated uber in german means over. I say loosely cause, at least in older german uber means "more than anything", or "more than anything else". Remember computers are the dumbest machines we have...

    barrel pins in blind holes, removal?

    We have a sinker edm at work and the oil is not something I would want to have the stock soak up. Also if the pins are not straight trying to follow them would be difficult. I did not mention this option in my "how to remove a screw" paragraph because of the oil issue. I will have to measure...

    barrel pins in blind holes, removal?

    There is no manufactures name on the gun. Just says "JAPAN". It is almost exactly like another I have which is marked " ultra high". I tried Dane's idea, no luck. Thanks Feamir

    barrel pins in blind holes, removal?

    If having experience in a similar situation, and it differs from your suggestion, qualifies as "talking myself out of it" then yes I have. My degree is in Machine tool technology not electrical engineering, math or physics. I have been in the trade 20 years. I am always ready to learn new...
