NEW MEMBER HERE. TRYING TO POST PICS



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi. A new member here.
Early 50's, New to guns , but a seasoned mechanic.
Have a few big handguns and rifles with the 22lr kits.
Rimfire seems a challenge to make it work reliably.

Love to experiment, improvise and improve the guns. Can build guns from the ground up.

Prefer the rimfire which allows simple blowback designs.

Would like to learn new things, and share my experience.

Right now I'm working with Astra Cub .22 short. what a delightful little weapon.
I threaded it's barrel, modified a Titan's magazine to work with it, made a new follower that gives the hold open on the last round option etc.

Is there a waiting period for posting the pics? Is it paid option?
Can I do it from a storage cloud site?

TY

Welcome to Rimfire Central Ty! I was a mechanic in another life as well....back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and carburetors and points were all the rage

As Mr Flysalot says you should be able to link images from a hosting site now. There's some algorithm for how many posts it takes to be able to load images directly to our server that I don't understand but it's not many and no you don't need a paid membership to be able to do it.

There are lots of friendly knowledgeable people here to answer any questions you have.

Thanks for the info, it seems to be working from Imgur, I wonder how much space they give.

I have tried [img][/img] trick with the URL of my current cloud provider- mega.nz, but it doesn't seem to be working, i wonder why

it would be pain to transfer pictures from there to Imgur, but i will if have to.

Thanks again

ASTRA CUB MODS

Disclamer: no original parts modified[ only extras], no irreversible changes, no harm to children and animals



EXTENDED MAG RELEASE- NOW EASILY DROPS OUT THE MAG WITH A THUMB OR MIDDLE FINGER OF THE SHOOTING R. HAND

Very interesting little pistol.

It appears from the picture as though you can remove the screw in the side of the magazine follower, and remove it and the spring from the top (or not?).

No, neither the original plastic follower nor my custom steel one[ i have made in order to have hold open bump, like in Erna Luger's 22 conversion kit] will come out on the top.
Both have a screw- which is 1) an additional aligning guide, 2) assists to load the rounds
3)protects banging and disfiguring the feeding lips by the follower if pulled down and let go accidentally[ especially by my new steel one.

thanks for the interest.

I love this gun perhaps more than my Luger.

Thank you very much for the explanation of the purposes of that screw. I can see how this could possibly be a good mod for other magazines.

It's just that I have never seen that before and jumped to the wrong conclusion (which I often do).
