As a starter here's an attempt at humour.Take it as a given that you were bought up on castor (for medicinal purposes) and that when you fart you leave a coloured skid mark in your jocks that looks very similar in colour to a well baked castor covered muffler.Are the synthetic clean burning oil brigade saying they don't suffer this problem??

Good morning Pete, coffee half gone, I can see straight now, the tiny one is sleeping much longer at a stretch. I started out using Fox 15% fuel with 20% castor in an Enya .46 MKII, a high compression Saito .80, 15.5 to 1 cr and the first 1.50 sold that year, 11.24 to 1 cr. That fuel did not castorate the engines like it was supposed to, except for the mufflers. I now use Wildcat 10% 2/4 full synthetic, 18%. it works very well, I have never worried about a little oil on the plane

No fore end tip just the way the light plays on it. The stain is slightly darker as there is some end grain in play on the reverse curvature. My Dad bought that rifle in 1958 for $12. The stock was in very bad shape after all these years. I restocked it last year by whittling down a semi-inletted Bishop stock circa 1970s. It had a Monte Carlo comb/cheekpiece, pistol grip & white line spacers. There was enough wood to duplicate the original straight grip sporterized GI stock complete with the GI steel butt plate with the cleaning rod trap.

The sight is a Pacific K-2. It slides into the magazine cut-off and is locked in place by a set screw. No D&T required. I lucked into it on e-bay last year & outbid another guy in the closing seconds. Paid $113.50 for it. It has micrometer windage/elevation screws. I keep an Allen wrench & 2 differing sized (.093", .063") apertures in the butt plate trap. I use a .125" aperture for hunting.

The Krag is problematic for receiver sights as the sight must be removed or elevated quite a distance to remove the bolt.. By removing the elevation lock thumbscrew one can access the set screw. 1/2 turn of the set screw & the sight slides out to the rear. There is no need to disturb the windage/elevation settings so the zero is not disturbed.

The shot was straight on from a rest at 120 yards. He was standing in a small opening in the brush about 20 yards from the edge. The shot took him cleanly through the spine. Dropped him in his tracks.

Popey is on my ignore list for good reason.

The ignore list is a wonderful thing when it comes to dealing with those that have little relevant or constructive input.

Excellent suggestion Sr, never used it before.
To quote a very wise man, "I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed man."
Congrats on the rifle, stock, sight, eyesight and groceries. :-)

The "ignore list" is a very handy device for relegating the inane rantings of trolls to the insignificance that they deserve. Their annoying blathering drivel can no longer enter your world.

It's like a dog barking at the moon in a vacuum, nobody can hear them. At least the ones they most want to annoy can't.

Yes, the world is already a more pleasant place.

Terry

BTW - I have a (SIg?) .40 J-3 free to a good home for anyone who wants to come get it (in the mid-TN area).
Needs minor repair, covering.
PM me.

If you're interested Dave, you can get another 1-1.2K out of an FA-40 MK3 for ~$35.

Thanks, I read above somewhere that the High Cam series cams can be added to the earlier series. That engines going on a twin so I'd need to do it twice.

Thank you for the large writing.It does look good,i'm thinking about selling the fa200r3 and getting your gas version for my harvard.When you fly it please let us know.

Dave that first cup of coffee is so good

ps okc? is right mate it's a tough love club i think so grin and bear it,actually no don't.If you keep digging with the same shovel,you always end up in the same place and it's fun to exchange ideas about saitos or related things we do.

Pete, I'm a self taught expert at blending and pre-heating fuel, however that doesn't make it burn clean. To be honest, I'd much prefer wiping castor off of a plane. Brooklyn is now 45 days and 9 lbs. She'll be holding her own bottle in a couple more days.
We're having 70ish weather so I got to squeeze in a few miles on big green.

I'm going work on getting a better idle on the FA .40, I'm close to acceptable. 2,300, I'd like to see 2,000

I don't consider it a "custom" Krag. I was just attempting to "restore" the rifle to the condition that it was in when my Dad bought it from his best friend in 1958. I was in the kitchen of that farm house in Fennelton Pennsylvania that day & remember it like it was yesterday. I ruined the stock in the mid '70s when I "refinished" it & sanded the wood down way past the metal.

Aside from the receiver sight, which was sorely needed due to the horrible GI rear sight, and the lack of some gaudy fake (plastic) ivory inlays, it has the same lines & general overall look.

Dan, did you or do buy those Stoeger Shooters Bibles, Us four boys would buy our Dad a new one every year. I remember the 30-40 Krag. I remember the 220 Swift was the fastest gun in there at the time a 4,110 fps. I'm sure tht's slow by todays standards.

Brooklyn a keeper! Congratulations Papa! She'll have you wrapped around her little finger in no time and make a fine R/C pilot too!
