Re: Criterion Barrel on a U.S. Krag

Thanks Jeff, for the final chambering info. on the Criterion barrel. ButlersRangers, I have no doubt you could install a criterion barrel yourself. If I remember right you made or borrowed a receiver wrench and did a barrel swap. The chamber can be finished reamed on a barrel/receiver assembly. No ...

Re: Add to favorits?

Used the wrench to book mark a post, in just a couple of minutes I found where the bookmark is stored. Click on your log in name and choose "user control panel". Then choose "manage book marks". I saw there was a manage drafts function, maybe that is where you go to get stuck Private Messages to fin...

Re: Add to favorits?

There maybe a way built into the site to do that. If not here is how I would go about it. Generate a text document to store the internet address for each page you want to keep. On each post the name of the one posting is shown twice, the one on the right has a little rectangle roughly in the proport...

Re: 1894 norwegian krag in .22 cal

On the one the 6.48 gauge does not enter, do you have smaller gauges to see how much smaller. The gauges are much harder than the barrel so do not force any of them. The measurement of most concern would be full diameter of the grooves. If your 6.5 has an even number of grooves slug it and mike or h...

Re: Reading from the Krag collection

Interesting illustration of the cartridges in the magazine.  Someone's heading for a case of rimlock! I caught that also. In practice it is hard to do. I did one experiment so I am not an expert, but I loaded cartridges into my 35/40 so the rims should have locked. if I closed the door fast they re...

Re: Cartouche

Can not tell you anything about the cartouche, but that light color of the stock make me think Italian walnut.

Re: PM's seem to be funky!

Before I knew the site was operational I sent and received a few PMs to SavageBrother. At least one that I think was sent stayed in the outbox and I can not clear it. So it is a little quirky. On other sites you have to check a box to keep a copy of outgoing PMs. Not sure if we did that back then or...

Re: How do we connect to old posts?

Whig, You probably have a list of links to important threads, the old format will not find any of them anymore. Maybe Josh can help with a format translator? If not we will just have to use the search feature to find each of those important threads then copy the new internet address for each.

Re: How do we connect to old posts?

Whig, I think I see what is wrong with your link that does not work. On my tablet I think I see .org as part of the link you tried. If the link is the same nomencature changing to .com may work. If not you will need to search for it again then use what Josh sent me. I just tried the link to the scou...
