Rifles / Re: German Mark V trigger housing
« on: April 19, 2018, 09:54:50 AM »
    Timney has a replacement for the german made markv. Check timney's web sight out or go to midway usa., they handle that trigger. ctw

   Work  that bolt like you mean it. When you chamber that cartridge do it with one solid motion. When you work the bolt slowly as you have said in your opening post, the shell will pop up ahead of the bolt from the magazine spring leaving it to be in a position where the bolt face will hit the head of the shell out of center pushing it out of alignment with the chamber.And welcome to the nation. ctw     

   I read yesterday that marlin and others who had pensions and retirement plans lost everything they had in them. The bankruptcy court let the investor groups and stockholders pick it apart. Once again the hard working men and women get the shaft. That's the travesty of it all. ctw   

  I was a big Remington fan and I still am,but since the quality went in the tank, I haven't even considered Remington anything. I own several weatherbys now,and I couldn't be happier. The weatherby vanguard has been my go to replacement of the Remington 700. The moa guarantee that comes with the vanguard and mark v is a big selling point for me. Although if Remington go's belly up it will be a big loss for the gun industry. I sincerely hope they can pull it together. ctw

   I had one of my accumarks do the same thing as yours. I took some wd-40 and sprayed the safety real good and made sure that the penetrating oil got down inside real good. All the while working the safety back and forth,freed right up.  And welcome aboard chamilton. ctw

Rifles / Re: how about some clips for 257 Vanguards and Mark Vs
« on: February 17, 2018, 02:20:59 PM »
   All my rifles have hinged floor plates and never created a problem for me in the light of day or darkness. Clips on the other hand get snagged on just about every thing, gloves,clothing,brush,and can quite easily become detached while hunting. Thank you weatherby for my hinged floor plates; I think I'll keep them. On a side note try tipping your rifle upside down while unloading,release floor plate place hand over open magazine well turn rifle right side up while the cartridges gently fill your hand. wha-la easier then tying your shoe laces.  ctw

   I want to know how this nut case was able to enter the school in the first place. I live in a rural area and the schools in my area all have a security system where as all side doors,back entrance doors are all locked and some also have chains with padlocks on them. The only way you can enter any of these schools is thru the front entrance way. The front entrance has a two door system with the second door locked. The receptionist will buzz you in only after you have been cleared after you have shown them your personal identification.  My two granddaughters elementary school goes one further. You have to be on an approval list given to the school by the parents including personal identification on copy. If for some reason I would be required to pick them up I would have already been on file. Some schools in the larger cities have metal detection screening to monitor students and such before entry, and that's thru the front door only. If these schools out in the rural community have this type of security in place then why not the urban community's. In my opinion the school has to step up and take some of the responsibility for this.  I sincerely feel for the victims ,and my heart felt sympathy goes out to their loved ones. Pointing the finger and playing the blame game isn't going to bring them back to life or change just what occurred, but this could have been prevented on so many levels. These situations anger me to the tenth degree. Our children are our most precious resource and it's time to take measures to protect them.  ctw     

Reloading / Re: 6.5-300 Weatherby load data available online at Hodgdons

   No surprise to me. Most reloading data for weatherby cartridges is quite conservative. ctw

   I agree whole heartily with Chris333378 on this.  Weatherby makes a fantastic brake. My son -in-law has a .300 weath. mag in the mark v and had the same problum as you. That rifle would rear up like a wild horse making it next to impossible to call or get back on target. He asked my advice on how to solve this,and simply told him to contact weatherby about putting a brake on it. Long story short: He did just that, weatherby installed their brake and he couldn't be happier. ctw
