  1. Can I discuss the H&R model 922 first variation revolver here?

    H&R/NEF Collectors
    I joined to get some help with parts on my H&R 922 with the octagon barrel because I am striking out finding someone to confirm the parts I need, even Numrich and Brownells fail to confirm the parts compatible with the first variation. The serial number puts this in the first variation, that...
  2. Blackhawk-->SuPeR Blackhawk Conversion?

    Handguns
    I've always liked the single six, but as I grew up the grip shrank. When I bought a 357 Blackhawk a few years ago, it seemed so short that I hated it. I sold it. It had too small of a grip for my paws. I've really got a craving for a good, strong built 45 colt, but I don't like the stubby...

  5. Houston, TX looking for gunsmith apprenticeship

    Marlinowners Job Seeker Help Forum
    I know this is sort of a long shot, but I am looking to apprentice to/learn from a gunsmith in the Houston area. I'm never happier than when spending hours cleaning and tuning-up an old gun. I've slicked up both my Ruger GP100 and my 336 and there's nothing quite as satisfying. I'm a young...
  6. Suppose'n I Wanted to Teach Myself Machine Basics...

    336
    I took a couple of shop classes a very long time ago, way back in high school. We even had a great teacher, a retired engineer from Caterpillar. Unfortunately, I paid no attention whatsoever as none of it interested me at the time. Nowadays, however, I wish that I had. With my ever-expanding...
