I have recently joined the ranks of folks owning Mosin-Nagant Model rifles, in particular a Model 91/30 in 7.62x54 mm R. I have experienced an occasional problem with extraction, which generally appears after the gun has warmed up. Can you recommend anything that might be done to eliminate this problem, or is it a design feature that has to be accepted?
Can you tell me about the Winchester 1873 lever-action rifle? In particular, I would like to know when Winchester stopped making it. Are replicas available?
I have an old box of Winchester-Western Super X .38 Colt hollow-point ammo. On the side of the box is “Lubaloy coated Bullet special dry wax lubricant.” It seems to me that most modern ammunition is not coated. Why is it (or was it) necessary to put some form of wax on ammunition?
I was at a gun store and saw an Enfield No. 4 rifle that looked to be a pretty standard model to me, except it had a pointed stacking swivel. I have never seen one like this before and was wondering if you could tell me something about it. Is this some odd variant, or is it a common one that I have just never seen before?
I was attempting to sight-in a Winchester Model 94 side-eject rifle in .30-30 Win. using a telescopic sight. The shots printed high with the elevation cranked all the way down. Am I right to conclude that placing shims under the front telescopic sight base should correct this problem?
