    Paying it forward

    Over the years I’ve gained a great deal of knowledge from this site, and I’m thankful for that. I was rummaging around in my parts cabinet this morning and came across these items that I thought some of you on here may find useful. First is a Weaver 1-3x20 scope. It spent a short time on my...

    7600 Makeover

    Sounds like a great project. I just want to add that along with the barrel, receiver and action tube the slide rails and bolt carrier also got cerakoted.

    7600 Makeover

    You know I was a little concerned about that but it did not affect it at all. If anything it almost feels a tad smoother!

    7600 Makeover

    I wish my eyes were better, I’d leave it with open or peep sights instead of scoping it. Carried my 20 gauge youth 870 rabbit hunting today. Virtually the same dimensions as the 7600 carbine and has a matte, Cerakote like finish on it. Felt so nice in my hands!

New Kick-Eez recoil pad, stock refinished and all the metal black Cerakoted. $260 for the job, and this 17 year old gun looks like new again. No scope on it yet. I’d planned on a VX-3 2.5-8x36 but the price went way up on...

    Don’t Buy Marlin Rifles Made By Remington & Don’t Ship Through Fedex

    Mounted a Nikon ProStaff 2-7x32 I had laying around. Removed the iron sights and installed the hammer spur that came with it. The mount is a DNZ Game Reaper, second one I’ve used, very rugged feeling and easy to install. Soon as the snow melts I’ll see how she shoots. It feels and looks pretty good!

    Magazine springs

    So the top of the spring slides into what is called the follower. That’s the piece you see when you look at the magazine from the top. The bent in lips of the magazine hold the follower, and spring underneath it, in place. To disassemble it push down on the follower, tip it to one side and...

    Magazine springs

    No, I don’t. I tossed out the broken springs. The springs are a single flat piece of steel, just slightly narrower than the magazine body and they are “Z” shaped. Both broke right at the lower sharp angle of the Z. Hope that explanation helps!
