New guns Tuesday!

Ignore the air rifle, that’s already mine.
But the other 3 I just inherited, 2 shotguns (1 with a bent barrel) and a 303-25.
Good times!

Always nice to add to the collection, hope it wasn’t someone close…

Luckily no people were harmed in the making of this new gun tuesday!

I think that you should send the 303-25 over to me. The weather is much drier than over there, hate to see it get rusty. :innocent::innocent::laughing::sunglasses::thinking::sunglasses:

thats all right mate, its already rusty!

Dont worry about the bent barrel. Did you see the Mythbusters show shooting a Ruger 10/22 with a bent barrel? They kept increasing the bend and firing to test. They made it all the way to 180 degrees just like in the cartoons.:grin:

Just straighten it up as fest you can… Sheel be right. :+1:

I will have a squiz with a tape measure, I might be able to just lop the end off it, but have to check it’ll still be legal :wink:

20" barrel afaik to be legal
16.5" if factory made

…go figure.

The German Army did this in 1944 with the Stg 44 Assault Rifle. Wore out barrels very quick though.

G’day GUN-DMC,
I once watched the old German gunsmith at E.Dark & Co straighten a pair of barrels off a (then) $40 000 Purdey, the method seems quite easy. One simply looks through the barrel at how the light “rings”, then grasping the barrel by one end you smack it across a block of hardwood. As I say, seems easy, give it a go! Cheers,

Cheers mate, don’t really have anything to loose so I will give that a try. This certainly isn’t a Purdy.

A straight edge might help.
I thought a couple of blocks of wood and a hard rubber mallet?
