  1. One for the techies

    I have always been led to believe the opposite of the above , i.e the longer the barrel decreases speed ... I am sure that i have read many times that around 24" barrel length is optimum for complete powder burn and then shot speed decreases due to friction of the wad and shot abrading along the barrel walls Blackpowder does need longer barrels for complete burn of powder
  2. Remington 1100 conversion to FAC

    Almost impossible to remove the crimp so that the pistons slide over smoothly on the outside and cartridges move smoothly inside the tube. Crimping stretches the metal and will not shrink back Cost wise , a new tube is not worth doing...they are silver soldered in , not screwed or pinned as previously suggested..soldering produces a lot of heat , hence the receiver bluing will be ruined and will have to be reblued..soldering also will require a jig to keep the barrel and mag tube in alignement.. More sensible would be to sell your gun and purchase an unrestricted 1100...fac 1100s are a lot cheaper than restricted 1100s
  3. White butt plate spacer

    Emulsion paint lids or lid from any large plastic pot...plenty in builders skips Ice cream tub lids I have used all the above to refurb or replace missing spacers on old Winchesters ,Remingtons and SKBs
  4. Benelli m2 stock drop shims

    Try Gunmark GMK... I am sure these are the importers and distributors for Benelli...part of the Beretta group..
  5. steel shotgun cartriges

    Taken from the Remington help center https://www.remington.com/support/help-center Can I use steel shot in my shotgun barrel? We do not recommend the use of steel shot through any barrel manufactured before 1963 or through any barrel having a fixed Full choke. Anything larger would not perform well out of a fixed full choke and could open up your muzzle over time. If you have barrels manufactured after 1963, with fixed Modified or Improved Cylinder chokes, you may shoot up to size #2 steel shot. The use of steel shot larger than size #2 is only recommended in modern barrels with the Rem Choke system. If you have the Rem Choke system, you may shoot any size steel through the Improved Cylinder and Modified choke tubes. The Full choke tube must state "For Steel or Lead" to be capable of handling steel shot.

    There is one on guntrader https://www.guntrader.uk/guns/shotguns/winchester/lever-action/410-gauge/9410-170815195944417
  10. choke identification

    Beretta USA skeet choke is tighter than EU skeet choke https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/chokes-beretta-skeet-usa-vs-skeet.618410/ http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=208586
  11. Savage Arms 30 E 12 gauge

    .719" is the nominal bore , not the choke size Choke size is most likely marked on the underside of the barrel I would be very surprised if it was not choked half or full

  13. Remington 11-87 problem!!

    Thats just it , the gun was not broken , the staking is there to aid reassembly but not necessary.. I have seen primers jammed in the trigger unit only last week on an ATA semi...home loads were the culprit
