  1. Hold the gun tighter. Try what feels to you like a "death grip" until you start shaking and then back off just until the point of the shakes going away. All of what raz-o said is also possible, but if you're new enough to call the extractor the retractor then you probably don't have a proper grip on the gun and that very often causes what you're describing. I doubt anything is wrong with the gun itself.

  3. Hi Rick!

    Could you please email me your resume and what you're looking for as far as compensation goes, so I can forward to my plant manager?

    My email is glennp@pappironworks.com

    Thank you!

  4. go for it, i've reloaded tons of cases with similar nicks (and worse) with no ill effect.
  5. Do they work fine? I don't think +.002" is going to slam fire but I'm not able to visualize this so I don't know. If it goes bang and not as a slamfire it's good enough. I say good enough because you indicate you're using mixed brass. So if you're trying for max accuracy you should look at the mixed brass situation first (but I'm sorry if I assumed wrong).
  6. I'm shocked and appalled that this is happening. I have a friend who is a fellow WWII reenactor up in NH, and he posted this. He's involved with the museum in question and this is messed up. I'm copying & pasting his own words. Read on at your own peril... and then please share and write to them! "So it turns out the majority of the Board at the Wright Museum of World War II in Wolfeboro, NH have gone through with a gun ban on museum property. This prohibits members of the public, re-enactors, or museum volunteers from holding or possessing guns or edged weapons real or fake all due to a false claim for better image for the museum and "safety". The good members of the board fought hard but were highly outnumbered. I myself a volunteer and re-enactor am now prohibited from doing what everyones been doing for years there as a constitutional right and as part of living history displays. Also included in this gun ban is the deactivation of all firearms in the museum collection including some valuable weapons such as the German MG-34, American M1941 Johnson rifle, and many more are at risk of destruction by means of deactivation because of a half wit policy. Please show support by making your voice heard to the museum to tell them destruction of constitutional rights and WWII history is not permissible! It agonizes me because this museum has been a place of nostalgia and fun for years for myself and many others volunteers or not. We also are prohibited from using blanks in the main guns of our tanks for living history events from now on as part of this ban. The director claims he respects the memory of those who fought in the war, yet by destroying artifacts and ignoring freedoms we know this to not be true. Please help us out by sharing this message and contacting the museum to show the executive director and the board majority that there are many of us out there that actually care about protecting freedom and history!"

  7. #1 I would replace the oprod spring with a known good spring. The symptoms of a weak spring are sometimes confused with being under-gassed, because you get such high bolt velocity that it skips the second round or will misfeed. You didn't quite fully explain the details of the malfunction so I don't know if this is more or less applicable. Is the bolt picking up the second round and failing to feed it because it doesn't have enough "oomph"? Or is the bolt picking up the second round and it's jamming? Or is the bolt skipping over the second round completely and returning to battery on an empty chamber? All 3 scenarios could be considered "the bolt not taking up the second round" http://www.garandgear.com/m1-garand-spring.html https://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts/receiver-parts/recoil-parts/recoil-springs/m1-garand-operating-rod-spring-prod38877.aspx While you have it apart, clean the gas port out with a #47 drill bit. If the port is fouled, gently spin the bit with your fingers as you clean the port. DO NOT USE A POWER TOOL OR A BIT HOLDER. If you're malfunction is from being under-gassed, this is the easy and most likely culprit. Most military surplus .30-06, like the HXP greek, the PS/KA Korean, and the LC is as "garand friendly" as factory ammo gets, from a functioning standpoint. So, I'd rule ammo out of the equation unless you didn't have one of the above "flavors" of surplus. I would say with 90% certainty, if you did both these tweaks, your gun will run. The nice thing is, you should do those two things anyways, so it's a perfect starting point.
  8. Full size, way more control. You want a heavy gun to control recoil. I compete with a bull shadow 2 which is a heavy barreled shadow 2 essentially, and being around 50oz means it has very little muzzle flip and recoils straight back. CZ is the bomb, you won't regret any of them. If you want to compete or just shoot for fun, the triggers with the better potential are the non-decockers of any sort. Only do a decocker if you want to use it for carry or something, otherwise you're losing feel in the trigger for a feature you don't really need.
  9. I know some British armour used Whitworth fasteners, all I know is "normal" tools don't work and if you mess one up good luck replacing it...
  10. It doesn't matter if it's a flash hider or not, since it's not a semi automatic rifle with a detachable magazine the 2 feature clause is irrelevant. That being said, it's not a flash hider anyways. It's a spigot type rifle grenade discharger.
  11. For 25-200 you should be fine with a non-magnified optic. What exactly are you trying to do? I use a Vortex Spitfire ARII which is a Prism style "red dot", and I have no issues out to 600 yards with it on man sized targets. Out to 400 is fine with smaller targets like 10-12" plates. It's also wicked fast close in due to the large rings around the center dot.
  12. I think the advertising is hilarious. It's so good it adds accuracy shooting from the hip, when you aren't even using the sight!
  13. I think Screwball hit the nail on the head. Since you legally obtained what NJ views as a firearm out of state, since it's not a gun out of state, and since you are not a prohibited persons, as long as you operate within the rest of NJ laws...you're good to go. The conversion itself doesn't matter, because even before the conversion the revolver was a firearm within NJ. You're just modifying a firearm, one that was procured legally out of state and brought in and is otherwise compliant. This is my opinion and not legal advice.
  14. Shongum has a pit you can use to do holster work, moving, reloads, etc
  15. It's direct blowback so the gas pressure went out the chamber end as the bolt never locks
