      I'm not much of a social media guy (other than here on TFF and a couple other forums) and don't normally give two craps about 'friends' online but wanted to add ya in as everything I've read from you is spot on and inline with my way of thinking. I grew up in central PA and did Hi-power service rifle for a quite a while, wondering if you ever shot at Reade Twnshp range or any others in that area. Anyway, take care and see you around the forums.

      Hi GunHugger,

      Sorry I did not reply to your post. I was hoping for scope information specific to the Lyman, since this is my very first scope and did not to try the other makers information sheets, which I printed out and have read. Not sure they are a match?

      I did contact DeWayne Greiner by phone and for a fee he agreed to send me a copy of the Lyman directions. His listed Email address did not work, so I called him and he gave me a working Email address.

      I also contacted Parsons(sp), but my several Emails have gone unanswered.

      I thank you for your reply and help.

      Hey gunhugger,
      I'm trying to fix a buddy's Westernfield 820, and it looks reeeeeeeeally similar to your Mossberg 146b (you posted a picture). Any chance you could post a picture of the inside?
      As in, pull the bolt back, take a photo of the interior? It has a feeding issue, and I don't know if parts are missing. That would probably be enough to tell me what it should look like

      Thanks man!

      About the Remington 35 cal. The letter's on the barrel are YY and it was not tapped or drilled by the factory. I would hate to destroy a wepon just for a scope so any info you can give would be a great help.

      I am shopping for a good Mossberg 46B. Have any suggestions?

      Saw the info you posted about old Colts, serials, mft dates and value. Very helpful. I, too, have an 1876 Colt Peacemaker NON US ARMY with low matching serials. I saved the info you posted and will finally order a letter. Colt was very happy to talk to me on the phone. lol

      It's very easy to do if you have a receiver block to secure the receiver in a vice when tightening the barrel nut. If you need to borrow mine I'll send it to you. All that I ask is that you let me know when you will need it and return it quickly. I use it often to work on mine and all of my friends AR's. I lend it to a guy last year and after he didn't return it after three months I had to buy another one. I can give you a few links with info on all the steps needed to do this job if you want.

    15. GunHugger
      No big deal, but thanks.

      I spent a bit of time posting that and looking things up. Just wanted to make sure that you at least saw it. Just trying to help you out.
