[QUOTE=PrusseluskenV2;34549621]Gerber is horrible. Brittle, bad steel. Leatherman is the best brand out there. And who actually use the DA on officer Nagants either way? Any sensible person uses it in SA (which you have to if you have a private's).[/QUOTE] I've been using my Gerber folder as a work knife for probably 4-5 years now, haven't had any issues with it.
[QUOTE=Ridge;34549935]I've been using my Gerber folder as a work knife for probably 4-5 years now, haven't had any issues with it.[/QUOTE] Older Gerber stuff is good, but new productions are pretty tame (just like e.g. Remington).
Alright alright, sorry for the delay. [url=http://filesmelt.com/dl/you_is_now_build_borz_yes.rar]Here's the plans for your very own Chechnya-brand submachinegun.[/url] While possessing and sharing this file is legal, building it is both risky and manufacture of a post-1986 unregistered automatic weapon. I'm not responsible if you blow off your hand and/or the ATF uses you as a rowboat. Enjoy! :v:
Went down to a gun show earlier today. Left with my very own nugget! [IMG_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9329839/MoistMcNugget.jpg[/IMG_thumb] Any tips on cleaning out all the little traces of cosmoline here and there?

Just take it apart and hit it with Hoppe's and patches. Make sure you run a patch down the barrel.
The fuck is the cleaning kit pouch made of? Leather? And you could try either putting it in the stove, in a plastic bag in the car on a warm day or simply into boiling water. All three options heat up the cosmoline and gets it running.

I agree with you that for residue on metal, a good solvent is the way to go, but if you really want all the cosmoline out of the stock, you need to heat it up. Hoppe's #9 will only break up the surface residue.

Are there any problems with the cosmoline being in the stock?
Break cleaner on all the metal. Seriously, I watched the cosmoline just drip off my SVT when I sprayed it with break cleaner.
Well, only if there is a lot of cosmoline in [I]your[/I] stock. On hot days and after shooting like 20 rounds quickly you [B]might[/B] notice cosmoline will start pouring out of the stock. It gets everywhere and is a bitch to get off clothing and such when it dries. I refinished a nugget stock and I left the handguard out in the sun one day. Cosmoline was literally seeping out of it.

[QUOTE=PrusseluskenV2;34549338]Not hating on you bro, but just throwing it our here: Benchmade and Cold Steel are both overrated firms that produce shit-tier edged weapons and tools with low-quality, brittle metal.[/QUOTE] Well then we will have to disagree. I have never had an issue with me Cold Steel, and getting it for $50 is a hell of a deal. Mine is very well built and feels very solid in my hand. If I ever have an issue with my knife I will be sure to let you know.
[QUOTE=faze;34550471]Some wood cleaner will fix the stock/furniture.[/QUOTE] Depends on how much cosmoline is stuck in the wood. When something's been stored in a warehouse in Ukraine for 70 years covered in cosmoline, the stuff seeps into the wood and stays there until it's warm enough to run.

Apparently my dad has himself a Wee Enfield. The thing is though that the Feds painted green stripes over the stock and handguard to say "This is reel ak47 glock dont toch"
Well, the cosmoline is [U]in[/U] the wood. You know when water seeps into wood and it's moist for a long time, right? It was kinda like that. Didn't even get that much out of it. I sanded everything infront of the rear sight down and oiled it about fifteen times over the course of five months. There's still some cosmoline in it though.

Ovens work well at removing cosmoline.

Found an old box of .22 magnum hollow point [IMG]http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd365/Esrange/100_6405.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd365/Esrange/100_6408.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd365/Esrange/100_6409.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd365/Esrange/100_6411.jpg[/IMG] I wonder if they're still good.
They will probably be fine.
Just thought I should tell you guys, I've been converted to the ways of the Hoppes #9. I am now a believer, hallelujah!
As promised, my new Sig! .40 SP2022. Threw in my 1911 as a bonus :v: [img_thumb]http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn137/outofideas7209/sig2.jpg[/img_thumb][img_thumb]http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn137/outofideas7209/sig1-1.jpg[/img_thumb][img_thumb]http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn137/outofideas7209/sigand1911.jpg[/img_thumb] And in fine Facepunch Firearms tradition, pens through the trigger guards.
I like that vintage look on the 1911. Very nice grips.

Faze youtube has this amazing thing called a search bar, try it some time yeah? Also another good channel is lifesizedpotato he mostly collects weird looking pistols, disasembles them, reviews them and a some history on them etc great quality channel.
Speaking of interesting youtube channels, I almost forgot [url=http://www.youtube.com/user/DrakeGmbH]Drake[/url]. If a weapon served in anything before and including World War 2, he probably has it.
