  1. Taking out my gauges, I would say the gauge they sent is 0.051, but 0.053 was also very close. It was hard to get an accurate definite answerer. I would say 0.051 would be okay.
  2. S&W does not mention the size, the send the gauge taped to a post card size color directions like the one on their web site. One picture shows it flush and days correct. The next picture shows it above the face of the bolt and says incorrect. The gauge fits perfect in the bolt so there is no mistake. Either it is above, which is no good or flush or slightly below which is correct. No credit card is mentioned to test.
  3. I have found this on another gun forum, I will still look a little later when I am working in my garage where my gauges are. For those that are interested the 22LR head space relief in the breech face or bolt, it should be 0.043" to 0.051".
  4. It isn't listed on the gauge, Later I can look at other gauges and get the size for you.
  5. I received the gauge from Smith & Wesson today. I ordered it online 8 days ago. I'm good, it is flush as it should be.
  6. Mine is also from that time period. I sent for the gauge tool. My brother has had this happen more than once. His is a few years newer than mine but probably made around 2015. What gets me going is the step by step instructions on how to take your bolt out. This is something everyone who owns one should have do many times depending on how long you have owned it. I take every firearm apart after purchase to make sure there a no manufacturing debris and the lube is okay before I will fire it. I guess to cover their butt, they have to have detailed instructions.
  7. I wonder if this could be the explanation as to the cause of Appleseed not allowing the S&W 15/22 to be used in their event?
  8. The price of Diesel goes up in the winter because of the home oil heating demand. There is only so much storage space. Chemical additives are added in both gas and diesel every winter by November 15, and are discontinued by April 15. Anyone that drives a diesel should put an additive in for extra protection.
  9. Nice K 10. I bought new an 1984 C-10 that I kept for 10 years. It was a good truck but with the 6 cylinder, it didn't make it up the mountain roads to well in the end with 150,000 miles. I always liked the K series with the solid front axel.
  10. When I parked this truck a little over 2 years ago everything worked on it. The fuel in the tank has dried up, it needs batteries. My guess is the gas tank needs to be dropped and cleaned out and maybe, the fuel lines cleaned. Honestly, I have been putting it off and don't want to do the work. Running, I would ask $7,500 for the truck. As it sits in the garage covered in dust, I would sell it for $5K , and not a penny less. So yes it is for sale as is. I have all the military repair manuals for it.
  11. Very cool. I knew the British had something similar, but did not know the U.S. has something similar. Enjoy.
  12. 1953 Dodge M-37. Flathead 6 cylinder. It goes a quick 42 mph. It can go through 42" of water before it needs the fording kit. It will go most places in 2 WD, but has 4 low/4 high. I took it off the road to put in a rebuilt starter.. I don't drive it enough so I need to buy 2 new batteries and get it on the road again. My son used the battery tenders and didn't pit them back. 24 volt generator. I plan to get it up and running. Then sell it. I've owned it for about 15 years. They were built in the late 40's up until 1967.
  13. I have new and old from them in 5.56, .223, and 9mm. No problems to date with anything, but when I was converting my 9mm mags down to 10 I opened a box of the 9mm to make sure I couldn't fit more than 10 in the magazine. When I opened a new box of the 9mm which I hadn't looked at when I purchased it, I first thought they slipped some .380 in the box by mistake. At least 5 out of the 50 rounds were pushed in the shell too deep and were noticeably shorter in length. I had stopped buying from them as their shipping took way too long. The price used to be good, but I don't find it a bargain anymore.
