Re: Oil leaks

Oh boy. I take yet another shot to the funny bone from Raymond! I credit that to my father, a WW2 combat vet from the European theater. He said SPAM was the only meat he had for long stretches. He liked all the nasty cuts of meat and things like head cheese, sweet bread (pancreas), chitterlings, fa...

Re: Coil interchangeability?

BTW, it is not just military coils, but any other automotive civilian coil, or electric transformer, voltage converter, rectifier, or inverter, whether in an automotive application, or in such consumer products as radios, TVs, electric motors, fans, capacitors, etc. that all potentially carry dioxin...

Re: Coil interchangeability?

Manufacture of PCB containing oils was outlawed in the U.S. in 1979. Truth is, due to litigation, most manufacture of PCBs cease well before the cutoff date. Once again, not all dielectric oil manufactures used PCB containing oils. And once again, PCB oils don't all contain dioxin, at least in quant...

Re: Coil interchangeability?

Dioxins are a class of chemicals. The main ingredient in old dielctric oils, the thing that made them electrically resistant as well as thermally stable, was PCB, aka polychlorinated biphenyl. All dioxins are PCBs, but not all PCBs are dioxin. Dioxin is an unwanted by-product of PCB productions. Man...

Re: M16

My Colt M16A1 has the same markings, including how the word "DIVISION" appears different than the rest.

I think it was stamped on after the rest, as it appears to be stamped heavier and deeper than the rest of the markings.

Re: Stars

The star on the hood is also supposed to be on the front of the hood, and with the point facing forward. Look in period pictures and you will find it facing backward, forward, and often much much larger than it was supposed to be. Sometimes practically covering the entire hood. Seems there was a rig...

Let's hope they look different so we can steer away from the China ones.

The Chinese will probably respond, as they have done in other instances, with piracy, by changing the appearance of their product to match the new ones.

Ok, He told me you were joining but your intro was kind of suspect and sounded just like a spammer. Welcome. And you have my sincere condolences for having to put up with TJ as your brother. :lol: Why thanks! I am still recovering from the emotional trauma of growing up with him. :lol: OUCH :!:

Re: Finally got a decent shooting day!!!

It was 62 grain "Wolf" and was marked as non-corrosive and listed .223 as the caliber. Black 20 round boxes, dark grey laquered steel cases. Copper coated bullet.

I bought it during the 2012 ammo drought.
