Summer shooting season

Posted on June 29, 2017 at 4:55 PM
         No,this has nothing to do with antifa or any of that type of idiot. 

  Many of our favorite seasons is upon us. The summer shooting season. The Camp Perry national matches have started. If you have never been there, I recommend it if only for the shopping alone. Many factory tables displaying there wares. Everyone from Armilite to Zastava. Quite a few "factory seconds" or repaired guns are for sale there as well. And for the most part at a significant discount. If you are in the area, it is well worth the visit. 
     Thankfully the S&W mail in rebate is almost over. I did not mind the extra business, but many people ordered THE SAME DAM GUN. Sorry, so much black poly gets really old really quick...
     On a nice side note the ODCMP has gotten in a few more realy nice quality drill rifles in. We take great pride in giving these old guns a new life with new bolts and barrels. The two M1's are called for, but the gorgeous "typewriter" (Smith-corona make) 1903a3 will be rebuilt with a new barrel (4 groove match) and NOS bolt. Will make a darling rifle for the vintage bolt action matches that are becoming quite popular. Provided you can take the recoil. 
      We, well me.. have started, after much delay onto the pile of Spanish 1916 Mauser. We have cleaned up (not refinished) the earliest example with a roller coaster rear sight (GEW 98 style) and hinged floorplate. No two of these "Hemingway era" rifles are alike. So many different little features. Well, fight a civil war, look at what happens. 

It is going to be an intresting summer.
