Of the aftermarket mags I have bought, the little bump on the right side of the mag is not especially well formed, so that the mag is not 100% secure. My constant fear is leaving a trail of lost...

I have to flick a lot of cases out of the receiver of my match rifle when I shoot any-sight matches; the cases bounce off the bottom of the scope. This does not happen when shooting irons. Is this...

It wasn't a yard sale, but the guy that owned it, my father's neighbor, thought it would go that way. He was a WW II vet that came home on a troop ship, bringing with him a 1938 (near as I can tell)...

Oh, just thought of this. It is not an ideal solution, but Trans Tint dyes (from Woodcraft) are pretty aggressive, and will sit on a sealed surface. They are mixable, so you can play with colors,...

Mine are worn out before before they get very faded. When they get to looking bedraggled, I just wear them the short amount of extra time it takes them to fall off me.

If you want accuracy, you have to address the issue of parallax, not fudge it. Either adjust the optics to an optimal range, or get an AO scope.

The other thing is that a centerfire scope will...
