Re: Cleaning Rods. Coated or not

Bit of irrelevance, maybe not. I am a Tipton Carbon fibre rod fan. I still also still have Bore Tech Bore Stix coated ones which I like because they are 56” inches long. At this length the handle doesn’t need to pass over the stock comb, something that if the comb is high and has no detachachable pi...

Re: magnaport.

Hi Bruce, I think Mialls Gunshop (BRILEY AUSTRALIA)in Frankston Victoria may do this. I know they use to do shotgun barrels. Their phone number is 03 9783 1576 Sorry to the OP for getting way off topic but in the 80's Mialls was my go to shop. Google street viewed it recently and it doesn't look at...

Re: Barnard Trigger Help

Probably not much help but I had one of my Barnards slamfiring. Brought it home and took out of the stock but couldn't fault it. Next time at the range it slamfired again. Found the stock ever so slightly interfering with the trigger. Relieved with Dremel and all good. One of my other Barnards, with...

Re: electric ear muffs for TR

After various brands of passive muffs over the years and an early set of Danish electronic muffs my muffs for the last 10 years have been MSA Sordin Supreme Pro-X. Expensive but probabaly the best electronic around. Have thinner lower section on the cups that for me at any rate doen't interfere with...

Re: Trigger clean

My Jewell trigger started to not cock so I flushed it with lighter fluid as Jewell recommends. Shook dry, reassembled to action, still failed to hold cock. BLASTED it with WD40, blew out with dry air and all good. To give lighter fluid its due though it probably is effective but in my case obviously...

Re: Omark scope base fit a Nielsen?

Maybe not much help to you but I fitted a 17 MOA Barnard rail to my old Omark. The action diameters Omark to Barnard are not quite the same but the Barnard rail design lends itself to fitting to the Omark at least. I bedded my rail with a Loctite metal filling compound but normal bedding compound eg...

Re: Tobler Actions

Any chance of a photo of the action?
I posted a thread back in 2014 asking for help to identify an action belonging to a mate. His action was also similar to an Omark. No one could help at the time.
Unfortunately the photos I posted of it were in Photobucket so have gone.

Re: Tobler Actions

I sill have a Tobler on my old Omark. It has been an excellent barrel. Bought from Dennis many years ago.
Drove thru Robertson a few years ago. Didn't even think to call in.

Re: Barnard action

thx, 6.5x55ai What barrel life are you getting with the 6.5x55ai?? I never got to “burn out” my Ackley barrel as I mothballed it at 800 rounds and switched to a 284W. At that stage accuracy was still excellent with no random fliers yet occurring. The bore scope showed erosion, obviously. I have mis...

Re: Barnard action

Peter Out of interest did you measure the extractor groove diameter on your new brass? I'd be interested to know although it may not have a lot of relevance between your brass and mine given different ages lot numbers etc. That's the ultimate place to measure for head expansion but to do it properly...

Re: Barnard action

agro I have just done some measurements and will need to modify what I said slightly in my previous posting. My first Barnard was actually an 03 year of manufacture and the bolt face was opened out to 0.483” for the 6.5 Swede. I don’t know the exact measurement of the bolt face prior to it being ope...

Re: Barnard action

My first Barnard P (2006 vintage) was chambered in 6.5x55bjai and the bolt face needed to be opened up to accept the brass (Lapua). At the time Malcolm at Barnard explained that the earlier actions were held to a very tight tolerance for the 308 family head diameters because that is what was wanted ...

Re: Gem pro 250

One thing - are you running it on batteries or mains? I made a battery pack out of D Cells to run mine to avoid any AC power disturbances. Running them with internal batteries fitted is hopeless - they eat small batteries. Fluor lights close by supposedly give them grief as well.

Re: Gem pro 250

Bought two at the same time. First one did exactly as OP described. Returned immediately for a refund. Wish I done the same with the second - aside from their usual zero drifting it occasionally decides, with nothing on it, to ramp up and up and up. Bought from Amazon and the second when, when I rea...
