Although it is desirable to have your reloader mounted permanently to a bench, it is not a necessity. If you cannot mount your reloader permanently to a bench, we recommend placing your reloader on a piece of 12x18 plywood. Photo 4 shows the ideal location for your loader on a piece of plywood. Install your reloader by placing it in the proper location, marking through the holes with a pencil, then remove your reloader and drill a 2 hole at these locations. Put the reloader back in position and fasten securely with the 74x20x2 counter sunk stove bolts with wing nuts. Place the bolts in from the bottom up and draw them up tight enough so the heads are slightly depressed so that they will not scratch the bench or table.
Although it is desirable to have your reloader mounted permanently to a bench, it is not a necessity. However, if you do mount your reloader on a bench, allow sufficient room to tilt the measure as in Photo No. 6.

Scrap lumber in good condition may be used to construct models. Hardwood is recommended for model parts that rub together or have strain on them. Other materials which are needed in making models are nails, screws, and springs. b. Paint the outline of the receiver on a sheet of 2-inch plywood.
About one out of every four stock fitting jobs will be with the stock too short to begin with. To make a temporary adjustment jig, cut out a piece of one-quarter-inch plywood in the shape of the butt plate. Drill the screw holes in this and slot the holes lengthwise for adjustment. The plywood jig is inserted between the stock and the butt plate and the screws reinstalled. By doing this, you will have lengthened the pull one-fourth inch. Try mounting the gun to your shoulder and firing a few shots. If it is still too short, remove the plywood jig and reinstall the butt plate. Now, slip one of the rubber pullover recoil pads on the-stock. These pads are about one-half inch thick. Try a few shots. Obviously if more length is needed, you can combine the plywood jig and the rubber pullover pad for a total gain in stock length of three-fourths of an inch. You can go to a full inch gain by cutting a second plywood jig and placing this between the regular butt plate and the recoil pad. I...
Such as this is an essential part of any rifleman's equipment to test and target a rifle in the prone position. The -inch rod is made from cold drawn steel about three feet long and pointed at the end. The holder is made from a piece of hardwood with a clamping wheel on the side. The wooden block is split so that it is possible to secure a very tight clamping effect on the rod. The rifle form is cut out and a piece of leather glued in place. The form illustrated on the left-hand side of the drawing is placed on the underside of the block, and
Convenience in holding the bolt open for loading and inspection. The firing pin is retracted mechanically as the bolt starts lo unlock and the rifle will fire only when the bolt is locked. The one-piece American hardwood stock is reinforced with steel liners in stressed and high temperature areas. The All-Weather model features a synthetic stock and stainless steel contruction.
Stack the ammunition in a pile. (If possible, the pile should be placed in a depression or hole, to lessen the danger to personnel performing the destruction operation.) Stack or pile all available flammable material, such as scrap wood or brush, over the ammunition. Pour gasoline or oil over the pile. Sufficient flammable material must be used to insure a very hot fire. Ignite the material and take cover. A period of 30 to 60 minutes will be required to destroy the ammunition carried by small combat units.
Although it is desirable to have your reloader mounted permanently to a bench, it is not a necessity. If you cannot mount your reloader permanently to a bench, we recommend placing your reloader on a piece of 3A x 12 x 18 plywood. The reloader should be positioned toward the rear of the plywood as much as possible, as shown in Figure 5. By positioning the reloader in this position, the plywood will counter the force used to provide a downstroke and prevent the reloader from tipping forward. However, when automatically reloading shells, it is very difficult to apply enough force for a complete downstroke. A large number of indexing problems will be prevented or solved by permanently mounting the reloader. Regardless of where or how you mount your reloader, allow sufficient room behind the reloader (121 2 minimum) to tilt the measure assembly and containers as shown in Figure 6. Also allow 12 above the measure assembly for clearance of the shot and powder containers.
Sturm, Ruger is proud to introduce this 40th Anniversary Edition of its famous 10 22 Carbine. This special autoloading rimfire carbine is very similar to its original configuration, and includes a 22 tip-off scope base adapter, barrel band and a western-style curved buttplate. It also features the Ruger eagle symbol on a special two-inch nickel-silver medallion inlaid into its hardwood stock.
To disassemble frame and lock mechanism, take down gun as described in Fig. 1. To remove stock (34) move top-lever (15) to side and unscrew tang wood screw (9). Unscrew 2 trigger guard wood screws (II). Spring out rear end of trigger guard 9. Tang wood screw 11. Trigger guard wood screw (2) 61. Fore-end latch escutcheon flat-head wood screw
Tool marks are of two different types impressed and striated. Impressed tool marks result when a tool leaves an impression, or dent, on another surface. An example would be the result of a blow from a hammer on soft wood. Striated tool marks are the result of a combination of force and motion. The example of a gun barrel producing a tool mark on a bullet illustrates the production of striated tool marks. A cut in metal with a pair of shears is another example. The striations that are produced are often visible only under magnification (with a microscope).
3 Continue (A) by removing top-lever retaining screw (29). Using a piece of cotton waste for padding, place thumb against top-lever spring shell (13) and fingers against face of receiver. Pry shell away from tang at (B) using a small screwdriver or hardwood wedge. Withdraw top-lever spring shell, spring (14), and plunger (15). Top-lever (16) may now be lifted out. and bolt (38) withdrawn rearward from receiver
2 Engage nose of cocking piece (60) on edge of bench and pull bolt away until a coin can be inserted between cocking piece and bolt sleeve (53. upper arrow). Unscrew firing mechanism from bolt. Be most careful not to dislodge coin. Hold firing mechanism vertically with point of firing pin on a hardwood block, and press down on safety with thumb until bolt sleeve clears cocking piece. Unscrew cocking piece from firing pin. allow bolt sleeve to move up gradually under mainspring pressure, and remove bolt sleeve and mainspring from firing pin. Remove safety detent screw (57) and carefully tap out safety detent (55) and safety detent spring (56). In reassembly, take care to screw on cocking piece so that its rear surface is flush with the outer rear edge of the firing pin.
The buttstock, forend, and grip for this shotgun can be made from hardwood, plastic, or fiberglass. As long as we are concerned with building only one gun, hardwood would seem to be the best choice. The use of plastic or fiberglass would require building molds and or forms which would require more time and effort to complete. While there are several types of hardwood available that are suitable for this purpose including maple, myrtle, gum, beech, etc., walnut is probably more readily available and as durable as any of the others. Since this gun is not necessarily meant to be a thing of beauty, I suggest that you seriously consider plain straight grained wood since it is usually stronger and weighs less than fancy figured wood. If possible, obtain wood of the type known as French, English, or Circassian Walnut Even though it was probably grown and cut in California, it is not only denser and stronger but is also lighter in weight than the Black Walnut which is more common across the...

The most popular and efficient was a plain solid wood affair, sometimes tipped with horn to prevent splitting, and to facilitate removing or replacing the bowstring. The choice of wood depended on geographical location, as every section had varieties that adequately met the needs of the early bow maker.
Posts (Figure 4-13 and 4-14) are among the best antivehicular obstacles because each post presents breaching problems to the attacker. There are no fast methods of breaching a belt of posts. Normally, the attacker will try to bypass such an obstacle. Therefore, post obstacles should be placed where bypass requires much time and effort. Posts should be hardwood with a minimum diameter of 40 centimeters.
Prepare to blue the barrel by making hardwood plugs that fit into each end of it. These plugs should be at least 3 4 inch in diameter, and long enough to serve as handles. The premanufactured dowel rod available at most lumber yards is ideal for this purpose. Using a wood lathe, turn a shoulder on one rod a few thousandths of an inch larger than the barrel's bore diameter. Make the plug for the muzzle end of the barrel five or six thousandths of an inch greater than the barrel's groove diameter. Grease it lightly and drive it into the bore, allowing approximately 1 2 inch to remain between the muzzle and the plug shoulder, insuring that the end of the muzzle will be acceptably blued also.
3 Insert front end of firing pin assembly into a Va hole drilled in a hardwood block held firmly in a vise. Exert forward pressure on bolt plug (62) until drift and coin drop away. Slowly release tension rearward on mainspring. Further disassembly is immediately apparent.
The classic 1911 pistol seamlessly combined form with function. Now, GB Diamond Grips offers an added touch of elegance to enhance this enduring sidearm. The concept is simple. A diamond shaped inlay inserted into grip panels produces an aesthetic which stylistically compliments the well-known lines of the 1911 without ever seeming ostentatious or fussy. The look is as clean, natural and smooth as a polished stone in an ancient riverbed. Created from carefully selected hardwoods and other durable and attractive materials, each set is manually fitted, sanded, and then given a final hand-rubbed oil finish. Made to last a lifetime, this eye-catching diamond inlay design signifies excellence in every possible respect.

O Next insert a small hardwood dowel into hole in front portion of frame (2) to depress link pivot pin (15). Pull cylinder assembly left until wood dowel prevents any further movement left. Withdraw dowel and place thumb over hole in frame. This will prevent cylinder stop spring (16) and link pivot pin from flying out of the hole as cylinder assembly is separated from the frame
It Doesnt Have To Be Fancy But It Should Be Efficient And Organized For Convenience And Tool Preservation
NOT EVERYONE can boast of a spacious shop equipped with deluxe hardwood paneling and cabinets, shelves and storage space galore, plus all the appointments and frills that amount to a plush place to work on guns. Once the legs are firmly bolted in place, the top may be installed, placing the 2x6s lengthwise. These should be nailed in place with eight-penny nails. It is a good idea to cover this top of 2x6s with a good grade of one-half inch plywood, thus providing a smooth surface on which to work. In my own shop, the plywood has been sanded and coated with spar varnish.
Vhen you choose a Ruger centerfire bolt action rifle, you have a wide range of options before you. All have precision hammer-forged barrels for superb accuracy, in lengths ranging from 16 1 2 for the Compact and Ruger Frontier Rifles to 26 for the supremely accurate Target Rifle. Material choices include blued or stainless steel barreled actions, and cut-checkered American walnut, laminated hardwood, or All-Weather synthetic stocks. All exposed stainless steel components on Target Grey models feature Sturm, Ruger's unique, corrosion-resistant, low-glare finish. In total, the M77 Mark II family includes over 100 top-quality rifles to meet your exact needs.
Stock dents are raised by using moist blotter or a gun patch, hot metal rod pressed against it. The water turns to steam, which raises the compressed wood fibers in the dent Rod shown is quarter-inch copper with dowel handle. The wood fibers in the dent then take the path of least resistance and return to their original shape and your dent is gone. One application usually is sufficient, but some stub If the wood fibers have been broken and the dent is small, it probably will be best to try to sand the stock down enough to eliminate it this way. Should the dent be too deep or perhaps a piece of wood is gouged out, it will have to be filled or patched. Patching the stock should be a last resort, as it is difficult to match perfectly the grain and color of two pieces of wood. Rather than try to hide the defect by blending in a similarly colored piece of wood, some gunsmiths prefer to patch it with a piece of contrasting wood. Either way, cut the gouge out to the shape of a diamond about...
Make a couple of hardwood gauges from scrap lumber in your shop. The Depth Gauge should be 3 8 deep by 5 16 wide (your guide tooth thickness). The Width Gauge should be made out of 5 16 thick material and the length should be the width of your tooth. In our case the tooth is 1-1 2 wide. This allows you to pass the width gauge down the length of the groove, similar to your riflingtooth passing thru the groove during operation. This will allow you opportunities to check for any binding, walls not perpendicular etc. See Figure 33
At this point, make absolutely certain that there is no wood dust from sanding in the air or in the vicinity where the oil is to be applied. This can make all the difference in whether the dried finish will be glassy smooth or ends up with a surface covered with minute bumps.
Usually for these special jobs only one reamer, the finishing-size reamer, is made, for you may never be called upon for another chamber of the same type. The chamber is polished out after this finishing reamer is used, either with a high-speed hand-type electric grinder using fine carborundum cloth discs followed by crocus cloth discs on a long mandrel, or a hardwood dummy cartridge is turned up in the lathe and a fine grained carborundum powder is mixed with light oil to form a paste and the chamber is given its final polish with this.
Harvey has made many inventions in other fields, although guns are his greatest love. Ideas materialize at the dinner table, on the job, or in bed. Many have not been tried, because of lack of time. He lias patents on 22 fishing lures, a casing for an outboard motor on a canoe, a Cribinette with a potty chair, a clothes hanger, mechanical toys for small fry, a new type folding table, and a folding top for a cruiser. He made a wood frame fish net, and special ovens to bend the wood. A fishing leader-tying machine and the ''Dyedend leader were other inventions. A new game called Bat-Net is his creation, and with proper promotion it could be a big national seller.
Although it is desirable to have your reloader mounted permanently to a bench, it is not a necessity. If you cannot mount your reloader permanently to a bench, we recommend placing your reloader on a piece of x 12 x 18 plywood. Photo 4 shows the ideal location for your loader on a piece of plywood. Install your loader by placing it in the proper location, marking through the holes with a pencil, then remove your reloader and drill a '-fe hole at these locations. Put the reloader back in position and fasten securely with the x 20 x 2 coun ersunk stove bolts with wing nuts. Place the bolts in from the bottom up and draw them up tight enough so the heads are slightly depressed so that they will not scratch the bench or table.
SKS carbines have been fitted with two different styles of bayonet. The earlier type is 9 in length and resembles a knife blade. The later type is 12 long, and is needle shaped. Both types are attached to the barrel and fold back under the barrel when not in use. The stock and handguard of the Soviet and Eastern bloc carbines are made of laminated beechwood with a hard, waterproof, clear lacquer finish. Chinese-made SKS carbines are usually found with stocks and handguards made of a porous Asian hardwood resembling teakwood, and brushed with an orange colored shellac-type finish. The Chinese SKS is sometimes fitted with a synthetic plastic resin stock and handguard which is molded in a reddish-brown color.
(d) Corrugated metal sheets, plywood, or burlap and chicken wire. A revetment of corrugated metal sheets or plywood (Figure 1-19) is usually installed rapidly and is strong and durable. It is well adapted to position construction because the edges and ends of the sheets or planks are lapped, as required, to produce a revetment of a given height and length. All metal surfaces are smeared with mud to reduce possible reflection of thermal radiation and aid in camouflage. Burlap and chicken wire revetments are similar to revetments made from corrugated metal sheets or plywood. However, burlap and chicken wire does not have the strength or durability of plywood or sheet metal for supporting soil.
The stock is of wood construction, machined so as to fit around the rearward portion of the receiver body. The stock has a machined opening along one side to permit the feed mechanism cover to position itself laterally and parallel The stock is protected on the rearward end by a steel butt plate, retained in position by two wood screws.
Developed to use 2,000 psi of compressed air instead of the norm of 3,000 psi, the Marauder will be available in both .177 and .22 caliber. It features a hardwood stock with ambidextrous raised comb and custom checkering with a choked and internal shrouded barrel. The new two-stage adjustable match grade trigger pack, with redesigned metal trigger, makes every shot smooth and steady. The Marauder also has a raised design aluminum breech that makes it easier to load and is grooved to accept 11mm scope mounts. To learn more, visit www.crosman.com.
(4) Freeing Extractor Collar (fig. 65). Provide a pair of special hardwood jaws with a recess to engage ears of extractor collar and clearance for body of extractor collar (figs. 17 and 18). Place jaws in vise, inserting bolt so that ears on extractor collar fall in dogging slot provided Close vise with jaws encircling body of bolt, allowing bolt to be rotated freely while the collar is held stationary. A -inch hole should be drilled in the hardwood vise jaws to allow for insertion of the lubricating material. Prepare a soft brass plug, one end turned and threaded to screw into rear end of bolt, the other end, either square or round, to be gripped by any suitable rotating member, preferably a bit brace or breast drill. With brass plug screwed into bolt and gripped by jaws of bit brace or breast drill, rapidly rotate bolt, applying freely OIL, lubricating, preservative, special, only, until extractor collar is entirely free. Clean, wash, and dry bolt.
Designed with the blackpowder hunter and target shooter in mind, these Buckhunter In-Line Pistols come in your choice of traditional blued finish with walnut stocks or the weather-shrugging satin-finish Chrome-Nickel with All-Weather finish hardwood stock in .45 and .50 caliber percussion. A 14 _ fluted satin-finish Chrome-Nickel barrel model with a recoil reducing muzzle brake is available.
Typical rifle of the trappers & hunters of the great American colonies. A slender and efficient gun. The octagonal barrel is rifled 1 in 1.660 mm for patched-balls loads. The long sighting plane between the blade front sight and fixed notch rear sight adds precision shooting accuracy. The colour case-hardened lock features a V-type mainspring for fast lock time. The full-length two-piece stock of walnut-finished select hardwood is accented by solid brass furniture. Also available as an easy-to-build kit.
To disassemble the bolt sleeve, first rest the point of the firing pin (7) against a block of soft wood to prevent it from getting damaged. Next, grasp the bolt sleeve as shown and press down hard until the cocking piece (1) is clear of the bolt sleeve. Turn the cocking piece one-quarter turn as shown, and lift it off. Ease up on the pressure and remove the bolt sleeve (3) and firing pin spring (6). Perform this operation away from your face, for the firing pin spring is very powerful
4 Remove hammer screw (19), rear block screw (20), and 2 remaining block screws (18). Using a small length of Va wide hardwood slat, pry halves of breechblock (11 and 12) apart by inserting slat into forward recess and twisting. This will separate breechblock and expose all internal working parts
A Press point of firing pin (14) against a wood surface. Push on bolt plug until it clears nose of cocking piece, rotate cocking piece Va turn in either direction, and pull it rearward off firing pin. Ease bolt plug to rear slowly, and separate it and the mainspring (32) from firing pin. Hold bolt plug firmly, and keep it pointed in a safe direction as it is under heavy pressure of mainspring.
Place unit in desired position on bench and mark base mounting holes. Drill at marks using a 9 32 bit and then secure Press to bench or mounting base using screws and wing nuts supplied. Note that bench is desirable, but not required. Press can be fastened to wood or metal base and be completely portable. A very nice mounting base can be made from plywood approximately 12 wide and 18 long with the Press being mounted somewhat back of the center on the 18 length. Before screwing shot and powder containers into place, remove the cellophane tape from the openings in the measure assembly, being sure to leave the neoprene grommets in place. Screw charging bar knob into place at left of charging bar, locking it with the jam nut provided.
A stock can be carved, checkered, inlayed, or shaped to certain styles and shapes, all of which help to set it apart as an individual thing. On the other hand, you can look for certain pieces of figured wood that also sets that particular weapon apart from most others. I have traveled many hundreds of miles looking over various stock blanks to find unusually marked or well figured pieces to make up into finished stocks. I have received much enjoyment in searching for them, finishing them up, and then applying the oil, lacquer or varnish to bring out the true high-lights and colors that one can never predict before hand. The anticipation is much like that received by the.agate cutter or gem polisher, as very seldom do any two gems, or gunstocks, finish up alike. You do not have to travel in order to obtain different species of woods for stock-blank purposes. Many private individuals and firms handle numerous types of imported woods. Any large city has hardwood lumber supply firms that...
While other SKS rifles sport stamped receivers, short, non-descript stocks, and a finish quality which emphasizes economy over aesthetics, the M-59 exhibits the same quality craftsmanship, deep bluing, and rich oil stock finish seen on the M-48 Mauser rifles. Fitted with an integral NATO spec, grenade launcher, flip-up grenade sight, hooded front and notched rear rifle sights, and 11.5 blade bayonet, this is the rarest and smallest production variant of the SKS-type rifle ever made. Milled and machined parts, durable hardwood furniture, and 'as new' condition make this hard-to-find rifle a breed apart from Chinese SKS rifles and a true bargain for collector and sportsman alike.
The action is anchored by two strong guard screws, one at the recoil lug and one just in front of the trigger guard, plus a wood screw in the lower tang behind the trigger guard. Trigger is small, neat, grooved, and well positioned. Trigger pull is excellent. The magazine is hinged, with trip in front of trigger guard, where it should be. Ammunition can be changed quickly, or the magazine can be recharged from the bottom while keeping a loaded round in the chamber. The magazine holds three rounds, which with one in the barrel, makes it a four shot rifle.
With the wood screws, it is best to drill first with a drill that is the size of the minor diameter about one-fourth of the way up the threads from the tip of the screw drilling the hole the length of the screw. Then use a second drill for the minor diameter of the wood screw about half way up from the tip of the screw and drill down about one-half the depth of the hole. If you plan to install several recoil pads, you can save time by purchasing a set of special two diameter wood screw drills. These should be the solid type with a depth stop. While all this might appear a waste of time, think about a stock splitting after you have worked for days because you chose the wrong drill size Williams Gun Sight Company makes a little reamer that fits on a drill and greatly simplifies sling stud hole drilling for installing their swivels. But you can get the job done with a plain drill. Starting with the rear swivel which uses a wood screw, match up the minor diameter of the screw with a...
Remove fore-end latch escutcheon flat-head wood screw (61). Remove fore-end latch escutcheon (60) from bottom of fore-end by knocking out gently with a punch or small screwdriver from top through fore-end latch escutcheon machine screw hole. Latch (62) and spring (64) may be removed by drifting out pins (63).
En you choose a Ruger centerfire bolt action rifle, you have a wide range of options before you. All now have precision hammer-forged barrels for superb accuracy, in lengths ranging from 16 1 2 for the Compact Rifle to 26 for the supremely accurate Target Rifle. Material choices include blued alloy steel or stainless steel barreled actions, and American Walnut, laminated hardwood, or All-Weather synthetic stocks. All exposed stainless steel components on Target Grey models feature Ruger's unique, corrosion resistant low-glare finish. In total, the M77 Mark II family includes over 100 top quality rifles to meet your exact needs.
The frame as drawn in the manual makes no provision for grip panels, so to improve comfort in firing I added two 1 2 x 1 2 steel spacers, welded in the grip as shown, to which a two piece wooden grip was then attached. The grip panels are held in place by two No. 10-32 x 1 2 long button head cap screws which screw into No. 10-32 threaded holes in the spacers. Any suitable hardwood or other material can be used for the grip panels, which can be shaped to fit the firer's hand if desired. For that matter, the grip itself could be modified to take standard .45 auto stocks if that's what the builder wants.
The purpose of the die is to ensure bullets are driven into the cartridge case accurately. The die is made from a simple section of hardwood. I am using a section of banister rail, and a 50mm diameter washer with a 10mm diameter hole. We also require an 8mm diameter bolt, 50mm (2 ) long and two nuts to fit the bolt. Any section of hardwood will do and ideally it should be around 1 in diameter. The rail section I use was actually 45mm in diameter but it was easy to obtain so I used it . Whatever wood section is used, it should measure about 45mm in length.
The crude powder of those days was truly a powder, granulation not then being known. A wad of soft wood was placed between the propelling charge and the projectile to give the gas pressure opportunity to build up, because the low saltpeter content of the compound coupled with the powdered form gave very slow combustion.
These procedures are the same as for the M72-series LAW. The training device can be used against all solid stationary or moving targets. However, because the subcaliber rocket can penetrate 0.124 inches (0.315 centimeters) of steel plate or 8 inches (20.32 centimeters) of soft wood, the target should be constructed of 3 16-inch steel plate backed by 3 4-inch plywood.

Round poles 10 centimeters in diameter are cut to standard picket lengths, sharpened on one end, and driven with a maul. The pickets are used without peeling the bark to prevent the wire from sliding on the picket and to simplify camouflage. Longer pickets are required in loose or sandy soil or when driving through a snow cover. The driving of wooden pickets is not as noisy as the driving of steel pickets, and the noise can be reduced further by fastening a section of tire tread over the face of the hammer or maul. For driving in hard earth, picket tops are wrapped with wire to avoid splitting. Pickets of hardwood, properly installed, are sturdy and rigid.
Cut grip frame out of 5 8 plywood, using pattern 1. It is a good idea to first make this piece out of balsa-wood. This allows you to make changes in grip shape or angle. When the entire stock is completed and you are comfortable with the final shape, it is duplicated in plywood. Drill four 1 8 holes and 7 16 takedown screw hole as shown. Taper the rear of the hole to accomodate the head of the screw. Drill hole for stock latch. STEP 2

A large wood fire is built by gathering up old lumber, tree limbs, small logs, scrap wood, and whatever else is available and placing the material to be annealed on top of the pile. Leaf spring material for making flat parts should be included. The wood pile is then ignited and allowed to burn completely. The metal parts will usually fall into the ashes and coals, where they should be covered using a rake or shovel and allowed to cool slowly, overnight preferably.
