The Barracks / Re: '03 Springfield Stocks
« Last post by LongWalker on Yesterday at 11:34:06 PM »
I picked up 30-40 milsurp stocks last spring, but was mostly focused on a couple of the Mauser stocks.  I might have a couple of straight Springfield stocks, pretty sure there are some scant stocks too.  All of them would take some work, but are probably usable or good donors. 
Also found this...

This has the conical mold I was referencing, so I wasn't too far off, I believe it recommends sizing the bullet using a "pincher" sizer.

And the dipping of finished cartridge in lube of paraffin or otherwise fills the void I was trying to fill.

I really appreciate all the help!!

Most model rockets are indeed powered by a remixed form of Black Powder, usually wet mixed with a retardant such as powdered aluminum, and Goex has supplied much of the base powder for it.  They (Estes) ought to be well versed in the processes of grinding and mixing powder.

I would venture to say that powder for rocketry is probably a larger market than firearms powder in this country, probably behind only government consumption.  This would include fireworks rockets.

Well hush my mouth!  The things an old phart can learn if he just shuts up and listens/reads.  LOL

Springfield in great condition. Works flawlessly has a new criterion barrel on it with about 35 rounds through it. Has a new S stock as well. Fantastic gun that I just don’t shoot very much. $1050 shipped to your ffl. Thanks for looking and happy new year
I would also be interested in trading for a non race 73 pistol grip rifle in 45lc.
I can send pictures via email or text just let me know

....this an WW1 1903, not an 03A3? I am looking for an 1903?

Tony responded to my email. He said he has not got around to making the sights, plans to, not sure when.

You don't have top wait for Tony, you can get them here and they are the best reproduction you will find...

Very nice rifle.  You are a lucky man to get your hands on beautiful firearms like that.  Like those Freund aftermarket sights.  Could you post a side view of that front sight?  Does the front sight have an hourglass curvature in the rear center or is it an illusion, to me?  If yes, what do you think it did or does for the oversight picture?

Now to the next topic --- a 50 caliber against a gopher?? Really?? :o ;D ::)   Must have 'monster' gophers up by you.

It is hard to get a camera lens close enough to the barrel to get a picture of the sight as you would see it from sighting the rifle. It is a bead with a thin support staff and a brass insert in the front of the sight...

Yes, I got it out to the range already and I could get this group at 100 yards with those sights and 68 year old eyes...

You would probably just have to buy a 86 from a manufacturer and send it somewhere to have it converted to 50-110. It's not a popular cartridge like 45-70 or even 45-90, so a custom gun would be your best bet.
