Special Reports / Lead Fouling Removal

Lead Fouling Removal

Chances are that the label on your favorite bore cleaner says something about “removing lead.” Being the curious guy that I am, I began to wonder just exactly how bore cleaners manage to accomplish this trick. Lead is a pretty inert metal, and there isn’t much that can actually dissolve it. So just how does bore cleaner get rid of lead fouling in a barrel? If we think about it, there are only a few ways to remove lead from a barrel. We could melt it out with a torch, but no one would want to take a torch to a favorite firearm. The three other ways to remove the offending metal are: (1) to penetrate under the lead to separate its bond with the barrel so that it can be pushed out, (2) use an abrasive to actually scour it away, or (3) to somehow break it down chemically. Some old-timers have also told me that pouring mercury in the bore would remove lead, but since mercury is poisonous and can drive those who are overexposed to it insane, I think we can skip that method.

The Best Purse for Concealed Carry

In the last ten years I have had four purses. Each one taught me something new about carrying a gun along with the dozens of items we women must keep handy.

Special Reports / Adjusting Fixed Chokes In Single-Barrel Guns

Adjusting Fixed Chokes In Single-Barrel Guns

The fixed, or “built-in,” choke is found in many of today’s shotgun barrels, and it is found in almost all shotgun barrels over ten years of age. It generally consists of a tapered entry (choke forcing cone) followed by a parallel section. Without a doubt, the most frequent alteration that the shotgun bore mechanic is asked to do is to make an adjustment in a choke exit diameter.

Ruger Super Redhawk Grip Upgrade

The results of my tests showed that the Ruger Super Redhawk was a fine piece. But, I wasn’t impressed with the supplied grip in terms of soaking up recoil.

While we agree that lasers are no substitute for proper shooting techniques, we also believe that they can be a valuable tool in low light confrontations. Their continued popularity among our Law Enforcement and Military communities is also a testament to their effectiveness.

Building Custom Shotgun Mounts

When there isn’t a scope mount made to fit the shotgun you’re working on, don’t worry about it. Just use a blank to make your own.

The Gunsmith’s Reference Library

We have yet to meet a gunsmith who knows all there is to know about repairing, improving and servicing all kinds of firearms. Nor have we ever met one who’s discomfort level fails to rise when a gun he’s never worked on, or hasn’t seen in years, comes in. Unless you specialize—rifles only, pistols only, shotguns only, stocks, engraving—you can ill afford to turn down work unfamiliar to you, yet you can’t afford not to if performing it could create a dangerous situation. That’s why books take up much space in the best shops. They’re our safety net, and they have proven their value many times by showing a way to fill a customer’s needs.

Choosing And Using Abrasive Stones in Gunsmithing

Smoothing metal with abrasive stones is one of the most important operations a gunsmith can perform. It also has ranked right up there with dental surgery on my list of favorite entertainments.
