    M40A1 Build - Circa 1975 to about 1980-82?

    I wanted to build an early Type 1 M40A1 with the look of the post-Vietnam but pre-Unertl time-frame when the Redfield Greenies carried over for a while. I'll eventually put an Unertl on this, but I wanted to take a couple of photos with the Greenie on it. I have an original M40 Redfield mount...

    Hey Doc, What's wrong the McConnell?

    Any Advice on Buying Still and Getting Permit for Making Ethanol for Farm Machinery Use Only?

    Thinking I'd get a very small electric one for starters, rather than a gas fired one, so I don't blow myself up. A friend's grandfather did that and burned himself to death when it blew up. But these are so many varied choices, I don't know what to buy. Any advice on doing this?

    Unertl 10X USMC Sniper Scope Manual Adjustment Instructions

    I wasn't real happy with the my zeroing and adjustment of my CMP 10X Unertl on the M40A1 so I thought I'd actually run down the adjusting instructions from the USMC Sniper Manual (1981) version and read them. I cut and pasted the parts I wanted to print and save. They are pretty rudimentary but...

    Mars Attacks!

    I watched this again recently and it's still really funny even after 20 years. Highly recommended as an escape from these strange times. Jack Nicholson is a great. Congress gets vaporized... thus it even gives you hope for the future!!

    The Impending Three Gorges Dam Collapse

    This is really interesting. The Three Gorges Dam in China, which was supposedly built to "last 10,000 years" is going to collapse, imminently. The Chinese press virtually is silent about it, predictably. The US Press is almost silent about it, asserting it's merely a "flooding problem." So our...

    Kid's 1890's era Pocket Sniper Rifle

    I rarely post links to active sales, because I hate when people do that if its something I want, but I have never seen one of these, and thought you'd find it sort of interesting. This certainly would have been the st*t to shoot groundhogs all summer if you were 10 years old in the 1890's...

    Video on WWII Japanese Type 97 and Type 99 Sniper Rifle

    Pretty well done if you like Japanese 6.5 and 7.7 rifles, of the sniper variety, a few in inaccuracies, but pretty well done. These used to be cheap and you could find them for peanuts, then they jumped into 4 figures, and now they' re are maybe $3-4K for a nice one with the scope. But still a...

    XM-3 Build Done

    I finally got the USMC XM-3 clone back from the builder who helped build the original 52 of them. This one has the titanium scope rail and barrel lug. I'm very pleased with his work. I esp. like how the bedding was dyed to match the stock color. If you are not familiar with the XM-3, here's a...

    What did I get here? 7mm w/ Ajack - Spanish K98?

    This was languishing ignored at the LGS for several months, no one seemed to know what it was for sure, and finally for $600 I couldn't resist it any longer, figured the scope might be worth that.... Gun looks minty and seems factory to me but I don't know. I looked for it online and it seems to...
