I'll decide whose targets live and die :D

I have no idea what you guys are talking about, or where this event is held. I see a date, but no time. I'd love to come shoot and meet more folks, but need more info.

The event is at the West End Gun Club

http://www.wegc.org/wordpress/

A lot of people get there by 8:30-9:00am, I don't think there is an official time for this meet.

WEGC = West End Gun Club
Most people show up at 8am, some at 10am. Some of stay till 3-4pm.

Hmm, this shoot is the day after the Burro shoot. I might be able to make it. :)

How much is the range fee for non-members, and what's the rules on magnetic ammo?

knucklehead0202 08-28-2013 7:13 PM

i'll bloody well be there! i'll bring all kinds of stuff, perhaps not as much as I did last time, but that depends on if somebody wants to shoot something or what I procure between now and then. I will bring the vz-58, but otherwise, c&r's as I prefer to keep things old. making steel targets too!

10 bucks for a guest [ you]. bring a ton of surplus and shoot all you want. do not even pick up the spent casings. nobody cares.

Definitely going now, throwing my hat in the ring.

NOTABIKER 08-30-2013 6:05 AM

by the names on the list i think we have ourselves a little club. i like that. if anybody ever needs help with their rifle let me know. i am no gun smith but i do have a lot of supplies and tools. maybe you would like to refinish a stock and never did one. if i have the supplies you need i will furnish what you need for free. let me know.

knucklehead0202 08-30-2013 7:50 AM

yes, I will bring the fal, gotta test those loads anyhow I guess, good idea.

We should do a shooting contest like we did the first time. I wasn't able to even hit the paper, but after adjusting the sights on my 3 mosins with an empty shell and a hammer they are pretty accurate now :)

http://jimbojack.com/Mosin_sights.jpg

Same 4 categories again?

Scoped and unscoped mosins
Scoped and unscoped C&R

I'm down. I found that my m38 is much more accurate than my 91/30s. I will also be using my Garand for the non Mosin if we do something.

NOTABIKER 08-30-2013 8:45 PM

a hammer and a mosin are a match made in heaven.

Put me down as well. I'll shoot an M39 Finn in unscoped Mosin and an M38 Swede in unscoped non-Mosin C&R. I dunno what the competition is, but I'm game :D

BTW I have a front sight adjustment tool for an M91/30 so I will bring it in case someone needs it.

thoughtpolice59 09-01-2013 5:32 PM

I'll have my first Mosin (and first rifle) ready by then - count me in!

your mosin will not be lonely,it will have lots of company. you will have fun.

Since I plan on bringing my SVT-40 to the shoot to test fire for the first time, I might as well bring along my 1917 Remington M1891 Mosin too. I was going to bring my 1942 VKT M39 Finn, but it seems like Beetle Bailey has the Finnish Mosin front covered nicely with his. :)

Well, first I'll have to get the gas adjustment unstuck to adjust it to a good level so I can start to shoot reloadable brass out of it without destroying the cases! If WECG is cool with magnetic ammo, though, I'll probably just shoot 150gr Bulgarian surplus out of it that day.

Maybe give it a little WD40? WD-40 for an SVT-40? :D

Syntax Error 09-02-2013 11:48 PM

I've tried soaking the adjustment port in Kroil but it still wouldn't budge. I read somewhere that firing may heat it up enough that it might get "unstuck".

I don't know. We'll have to see at the range. :shrug:

Are you saying the gas regulator wont turn? http://i889.photobucket.com/albums/a...chematic-1.jpg

Can you remove the gas cylinder? This holds the regulator in. (I usually loosen the cylinder to adjust the regulator because it can cinch it down.)

When the cylinder is removed the regulator should tap right out. If not, give it a few days soak in kroil, then heat up the valve area with a torch (doesnt have to be red hot, just enough to have the outside area expand a bit) and tap it out towards the rear with a punch. Then clean out the whole thing well.

This area is important to be totally clean and functioning before you shoot it the 1st time.

Hmm, I haven't thought about simply punching it out. Figures a Russian gun would be simple like that. Fortunately, the piston cup isn't stuck to the gas regulator, so I will give this a try. If it doesn't budge, I guess I'll get a propane torch for this purpose and heat it up a little. :)
