    Wishful thinking, Dee. Your original observation was correct, it's likely someone's initials.

    It's still a nice piece though, and with the right ammunition those are VERY accurate rifles.

    Yeah, and you've gotta get a BIG sheet of cardboard for a backer. Like HUGE.

    Small bull, and remember your follow-through. You can measure a Mauser's lock time with a sundial. And the sights...

    Yep, byf44. All matching, mint bore and incredibly accurate. Actually, it found ME. I built a target pistol for a big music star, and he came up short on the money he owed me. He hoped that the...

    What do you mean by a four-foot "swing" in impact? A 48-inch deviation between point-of-aim and point-of-impact at 100 yards? Or are your groups 4 feet in diameter?

    Before you do anything, shoot...

    Well that's just it, Mech. And whether it is or it isn't, the feeling you get from phrases like "restocking fee" and "sold as-is, no returns" is the same. Crummy photos give me that feeling too, like...

    It's a flashing red light for sure, Herk. At least it is for me. So is the "sold as-is, no returns" label. There's no way I'd EVER buy a gun from someone who put either of those lines in their ad.

    I agree. A 3-day inspection used to be the norm, but somewhere along the line sellers started in with this "restocking fee" nonsense.

    The whole "restocking fee" thing came from appliance retailers...

    Ah yes, I remember that guy. A few weeks ago, right? I agree, the way he was schlepping that iron on the forum wasn't cool at all.

    On steaming to raise the numerals, your best results will be on the "7" -- just use a CORNER of a damp rag and the pointed tip of your wife's iron, and you won't bother that 'ampt. The "0" will...

    In the trade, we call that "mud" -- wood dust mixed into Acraglas. But it's only useful in very limited applications. Muncher is right. In this instance, it'll only result in dark numerals that are...
