Re: .32 Winchester Special Redux: Return to the Range

I loosened everything on the front of a 94 once and it made no difference, possibly made it shoot worse! I don't believe you can help such a design like that. I prefer it all to be tight and snug and hope the heat treatment of the barrel is even!

Re: Remington Bankruptcy?

It's been on the cards since the nineties! I bought a ssst 243. The rubber stock and a bore that had more tooling marks than a tooling mark tool could give soon went.

I didnt have a chronograph with me (have to get a new one) but from experience I would put the velocity at around 1200 - 1300 fps. About the same as a .44-40.
Mediocre then.

Notice that the aircraft is parked on PSP (pierced steel planking) used for runways and parking areas. It is slippery as owl poop when wet. Those are pins driven into the ground through holes in the PSP to keep the chocks from slipping. Yep, owl poop, nothing more slippy in all creation :D N.
