I took the SKS and my brand new SA 1911 Range Officer to the range on Tuesday and had a great time. The SKS didn’t want to cycle, which didn’t concern me. It sure was accurate, though. I was able to group 5 shots in a 4” circle at 25 yards holding it by hand. I could only find some Tula steel jacketed ammo locally, which is what I shot. Dang thing sure is heavy.
On Wednesday I stripped the SKS completely down and gave it a good cleaning. It was in pretty good shape, but while I had it apart I hand polished the bolt and gas pistons as well as giving everything a good coat of dry lube. The bore was amazingly clean. Got it all back together and ready to go back out. Went to the range after work for an hour. Ran 30 rounds through the SKS. Didn’t miss a lick. Tossed every spent shell over my shoulder. Still deadly accurate. I may take it to another range in the area that’s set up for rifles to see how it does at a distance. Shot the SA 1911 again. I was a lot better with it out of the box - I’ve got to do some practice with this trigger as there’s almost no take up in it. Very tight. This weekend should be fun - tomorrow will start off with a 6:00 am grocery run, finish some laundry, and pressure wash the driveway and sidewalk. Might have time to wash the cars, too. The 400E gets picked up at 9:00, so it will be on the way as well. On Sunday I’m hoping the 400E will arrive. If so I’ll have my hands full getting it inducted into the system with photos and a major inventory of everything. I’ve also got to do the wiring for a 20A receptacle for my garage window AC. Ordered the stuff online tonight with Lowe’s and a 10% off promo code. That should only take about an hour to do. Put a section of 6' vinyl fence, two posts and a couple of bags of concrete for a privacy fence for that side of the garage on the same order, but it won’t be in until later this month. Fun! -D _______________________________________ http://www.okiebenz.com To search list archives http://www.okiebenz.com/archive/ To Unsubscribe or change delivery options go to: http://mail.okiebenz.com/mailman/listinfo/mercedes_okiebenz.com
