Small arms gunsmithing

Hosted by HWPeeler (HPeeler)

A forum for gunsmithing. Small arms repair, modification and manufacturing. We have no intention of covering anything illegal. For instance we will not cover how to convert your semiautomatic to a full automatic or make your own silencer. Particularly only a subsection of small arms will be covered. 7.62 mm rifles and small handguns, .45 and below and shot guns. Other items that fall into the proper definition of mall arms, as the military might use the term, are not covered. No mortars or rocket launchers are covered.

Tales Of Woe: Are You Making These Gunsmithing Mistakes?
by Patrick Sweeney

Learn from the misfortunes of others to avoid making these gunsmithing mistakes when repairing or maintaining your own firearms.

Mistakes in gunsmithing fall into two categories. There are those you can fix with money or effort, and those that require paperwork. Both happen because you didn’t apply patience. Before you tighten the vise and begin cutting, drilling and filing, or fire up the torch, think through what you’re going to do. A moment spent visualizing can save you a lot of hassle and hours, days or even weeks of work.

I'd post here more often to share good articles but now have very limited access.

It is a pretty quiet forum. I don't get to it often myself. I have about a dozen other forums.

Yeah but I used to have access to the other folders on the forum — now only this one.

The forum will be even quieter since guests cannot view or contribute to existing discussions.

What problems do you have here? What problems do you have reading or contributing? I can't view it as a guest.

I can only see one discussion folder: Discussions

When you created the forum there were several other folders but you have evidently made them private.

Discussions is the only folder. You are not missing anything.
