Hey, I'm sure you'll be there, but just wondering if anybody's gonna be at W&W on Sunday, I'm about 95% sure I'll be there.....just checkin, I'll probably still go even if no one's there, but I need some trigger time, and it's better than shootin alone....

I plan on being there early as usual. Need to leave no later than 1300hrs for a soccer game. The weather looks okay. Hope to have the repaired M1A. Should it fail again, it may become a target itself.

I'll see you there then, ya know Gary, I think we've been there only a few times together, and none of the knuckleheads(RAY) ever introduced us.....I'm the other bald guy that shows up from time to time...

The bald guy with the bad memory....

Gary is the guy that drives the land yacht (Expedition I believe it is) and always has one or two FALs out to play with.

Jay is the skinny bald guy with the desert colored AR and a poor aim.

I'll be there Jay....you just make sure you show up this time huh??

Mike and Matt will be slapping their balls around this weekend....he only shoots every other weekend now.

Plenty of time to sleep when you're dead! Great to see everyone again. The M1A is over at Donnely's. I hope he's using it to drive nails. That's about all it's good for! Have a great week all. I may see you next weekend depending on soccer.

I hear ya Gary....the FAL, with the rear site adjusted as far over as it will go, is hitting a consistent 1.5 feet right at 300 yards. It either gets scoped or it gets sold. The CETME was hitting center mass with the same ammunition at the same range.

The bbl on the FAL is probably just overtimed ("shoots to the right, too tight"). It may be possible to loosen it enough to correct, w/o being too loose, or you can try to shim between the receiver and the shoulder. Some people also just peen the shoulder, but some frown upon this, as you lose most of the bearing surface. Was this a rifle you built or do you have the tools to remove and reinstall the bbl? Keep in mind, correcting the timing (if that is the problem) can alter the current headspace.

Of course, the bbl coudl just be bent, too.

Here is that scope I was telling you about. Let's see what a new on sells for on Ebay then we can figure out a fair price for my used one if you are interested. cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31714&item=7103130668&rd=1

Oh and Ray, I don't have any M1 Carbine Mags here in PA, I'll check if I still have any when I go to CT, or just go to Seneca and shell out a few bucks for some, I'm sure John's got some good ones there...
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 7:44:40 AM EDT
Yeah Jay, if I keep it I will.......thanks for checking though.

Sounds good Ray, and it looks like I won't be up next weekend, but that's still up in the air...
