  1. Hello, love the Box for testing, and your right on target with your ammo testing, and also, thanks for the Judge test, I have been trying to convince my dad NOT to get this gun for defense, there is power in numbers, and more rounds for more clowns,meaning at 75 my dad needs to have a couple of extra shots if needed and his single shot cowboy gun is old school. I can deal with old school, but am a firm believer in an old military tactic called suppressive fire. Any way, thought you might need one of my cheek rest with all that testing. I make a great product, If you have a minute to check out my website ,please do, call me if you are interested in a sample product, Brad @855-900-2723, i am in Portland.I am Made in America and so is my Cheek rest and all its components, thanks

  2. would like to subscribe to your posts. had you running about six months ago and was receiving emails regularly and then you dropped off.

  3. I came across EZ #57. the stock plit issue is exactly the problem I have on a converted Chileno Mauser my Dad gave me 35 yrs ago. Isn’t the original stock but a stock from some catalog place that was not well done. I did some of the things you did with that stock. Looks like Hell ├žause I never finished working on it. Other things happened and I have left it for 32 years. Now I, like you, have the time and interest to revive some old firearms. LIke Dad’s 1873 Sprinfield, soon to get my hands on my great grandfather’s 1873 Winchester Carbine, a friend sold/gave me his Model 54 .270 badly in need of TLC.
    Anyway, how did your split stock repair turn out – functionally?

    The converted (7mm to .308 Win) is probably not worth putting a bunch of money into a new stock but, if I could get it funtional and safe, I would be happy.

    I have read a few places that the Chileno may not be that safe for .308 Winchester but, could be OK with 7.62X51 NATO. Do you have an opinion???

    I saw these new expanding copper or brass shotgun slugs that expand to 2.5 inches and thought of you. Wondered if you’ve got your hands on any to see how they do with walls. I’m thinking they won’t penetrate very far, but seem pretty good in gel tests.
