    Question for my online friends. I have a new rifle, only rounds in this rifle have been dummy rounds to hand cycle. I've done a basic "field strip", disassembled the bolt, and a cleaning. I like to do this so I am familiar with the functions of the rifle. I did use a chamber brush to clean...

    Leave no one behind! For the 5k at the Venetian Festival in Charlevoix, Lcpl Kerr opted to run the event wearing boots and utes and carrying a ruck sack.

    Picked up a new stripped lower, my 1st. The finish looks (to my eyes) a little dull, not shiny. What do I need to do to get it to that dark black color? Do I just oil it & let it absorb the oil? Thanks!

    On sunday night, I took apart my 870P to clean it after the steel plate match. I noticed that the barrel clamp had rubbed away the finish in a couple of small spots on the barrel, down to shiny bare metal. What can I do about this? Is there something I can put between the barrel and clamp to...
