Re: Simson serial numbers Der Ami 05/21/24 08:32 PM
In addition to being Jewish owned, one of the reasons for hard feelings about Simson, I think, is because they were chosen after the Great War to build/rebuild arms for the limited military services that the treaty allowed. Their pre-WW2 reputation was always that they built high quality guns.

I have to agree, Steve W. and Paul S. are both incredibly knowledgeable on the subject stateside. That is a great book as well, although the training rifles are in a serial range outside of the rest of their commercial production it appears.

Re: Imman Meffert? Der Ami 05/21/24 08:14 PM
Jtplumb,
If they don't chamber and a chamber cast shows the chamber is one of the 9.3x72Rs other than the "N" version, there are a couple possible solutions. You might be able to modify the cartridges to fit the chamber, or it can be rechambered. This is one of a couple rechambering jobs that doesn't require re-proof, even under German law. While I would prefer to keep the gun original, it is yours, not mine. There are a couple other cartridges it could be chambered for and carry the 118,35 proofs. One is 9x58R Sauer& Sohn, others are 9.3x57R or 9.3x70R. I f a chamber cast shows it is chambered for one of these, you can handload for it.
Mike

Wouldn't it be something if he was the writer of the Phantom comics? That was THE COMIC that everyone followed in the newspaper back in the 1960s. I delivered the local newspaper back then and everyone followed The Phantom. Maybe we had a bigger celebrity on here than everyone thought.

Re: Ron Forsyth - Australian Author and DGS Member Jason Dubois 05/21/24 04:47 PM
This brings back some memories. I bet that's far enough back that it was on the old board. Remember the forerunner to this board started as gunshop.com back in the 90's? I don't recall when the double figured into the site name and the board was revised. It may explain why you can't find very old posts.

I recall the discussions of this book on the board when it was newly published. I also seem to remember realizing that it was a nom de plume though I cannot remember his real name. When it came to ordering the book, the procedure back then was to put US currency into a letter and mail it to Australia. I'll have to find my copy of his book. Ron I think put a personal inscription in each copy sold on the board.

There were some good stories that now I want to reread.

Re: rifle stock warp help BrentD, Prof 05/21/24 03:26 PM
The video is interesting - his rabbit holes always are. I wonder how that gun managed to ever stay straight and what caused it suddenly "take off to the left". I think I would have given up on it early on.

Thanks Mike for the bore information. For now I just hope the S&B FL fits in the chamber, since most likely will always be shooting this thing in timber.

I got the idea for the rubber tubing from the video I referenced above, it is worth watching and gives one a much better appreciation for the problem than I have described here.

"Ron Forsyth", I'm reasonably sure, was a nom de plume. I've not seen it used as a byline for a good while.
I always enjoyed his and Murray Mitchell's - Bwana Samaki - articles in the old ASJ when I was younger.
I think he may be still going strong under another name, writing of guns, planes, cars etc on a blog of his own.

Is the tubing going to be strong enough? Perhaps a board across the stock and clamped to the table with C clamps on either side? I would think you would want more pressure than that tubing will supply.

Looks like there is some figure in that wood.

Hi All

Ok,the stock shows some signs of improvement, I was a bit tentative in my first attempt, the stock is boiling as I write this.
Prior to posting this thread, I saw this video which deals with an attempt to fix stock warp. What AGS wrote makes a bit more
sense to me than the variation used in the video. Thank you once again AGS

Mauser sporter stock warp

Ok here are some pictures of the stock[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

sorry they aren't better,

here is a picture of my boiling set up, it keeps the forend tip from touching the bottom of the post.

And here is a picture of it clamped, the wooden boarded is bolted to the table of my milling machine, the stock is held in place by
bolts going through the triggerguard, and the rubber tubing

Re: Just 4-months to the grouse opener... Lloyd3 05/21/24 02:21 PM
No bugs to speak of here yet, but I'll bet you're right. There will be plenty shortly. Last year was very bad here, the worst Spring I've ever experienced here for bugs. One wonders if that had anything to do with last Fall's bounty of birds?

Re: Just 4-months to the grouse opener... ClapperZapper 05/21/24 01:18 PM
That’s more or less accurate Lloyd. If the first clutch fails to hatch, the second clutch is smaller.

If the first clutch hatches, but the chicks fail, then there is no second clutch, and young of the year birds in the fall will be sparse.

it was an easy winter here, no cold weather, limited ice, so, without having made a scouting trip, I would expect gross numbers to be good throughout northern lower Michigan this season.

Actually, throughout the region.

We literally had our first heavy rain in a month or more yesterday. It will be bugzilla up north until mid July.

This will be the kind of summer, where if you roll down the window of your car, and then slam the door,

You can literally hear the swarms of mosquitoes mustering, which sounds like a chainsaw starting off in the distance.

At which time you close the window, or risk being exsanguinated.

A Dickson round action for sale soon in GB HistoricBore 05/21/24 01:07 PM
Hello chaps,

Our local auction house here in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England has an interesting item for sale amongst the usual lower price point items:

LOT 160: John Dickson 12 bore side by side round action ejector, improved cyl & 3/8 chokes,
29" damascus barrels, SN 4914 (bore size .734 both, barrel thickness 23 & 23) fully
engraved action, highly figured 14 1/2" stock including pad, complete in leather case
with brass corners, circa 1890. £4200-4500


I have used this auction house (Netherhampton) from time to time and they are competent and reliable. No idea if they are used to exporting guns to the USA however.

I am not bidding, but let me know what you think...

It has been raining up here a fair amount, enough to really saturate things and today it is supposed to begin another 24-hour period of fairly intense rain. Now... how this will affect the grouse populations is the big question. Depending on when the first clutch of eggs was laid (in May?), if those chicks are already past the "fragile" point (susceptible to hypothermia) then....we should be golden. If, however, we're not past that point now then we won't be experiencing the incredible population "high" that we had up here last Fall. There are lots of theories about how ruffed grouse populations rise and fall (and accordingly, lots of ink has been spilled on the subject) so of course I have my own as well (after 23-years of mostly unscientific observation up here). If that first clutch comes off well, we usually have a good mixed (young & older) population of birds here in September. If that 1st clutch of birds doesn't do well (because of wet and cold nesting conditions) then the birds I see in the Fall will mostly be adult birds. You can certainly make that theory much more complicated (I have a book that talks about how the interplay of raptor populations and snowshoe hares affect the cycle too) and there is even the argument about successive nesting attempts but...I remain unconvinced by it all. Are there lots of variables, certainly(!) and the populations are likely to also be variable across a region. But...I'm a big fan of Ockham's Razor Theory (or the principle of parsimony) where the best explanations usually involve the smallest set of variables.

Re: Simson serial numbers Themauserkid 05/21/24 12:52 PM
Oh no, you are quite correct, I just mean their commercial production by the numbers was significantly lower. I can’t think of any books with a dedicated focus on Simson, off the top of my head the K98k book set Vol 1 is probably the most comprehensive in the US. There is probably a German language counterpart but I am not aware of it, please let me know if you come across any.

Limb wood can be like that.
Proper layout minimizes this possibility. Layout trumps figure every time. Hopefully PhysDoc can get some pictures posted.
