    All of your furniture set is E. German. Some folks were paying pretty good money for that stuff a while back.... guess there's not so much around anymore.
    I crashed so many of those old planes when I was a kid. Wish I had them back now. Especially the Ju87.

    Out to the pistol range for round 2 with the wz.35. Messed with oal and got down to 1.09" with the 115g RN, which is .045 shorter than the last batch. Success! All 10 ran 100%. To make sure I had some Acme 115g RN loaded at 1.125 and sure enough they jammed digging into the feed ramp. Then I tried some of the 125g TC uncoated over 4g of HP38 that I was using in the 9mm/20 ga. adapter. It didn't like the TC shaped bullets AT ALL lol! Got 3 down range and they felt pretty snappy. Sure enough, the primers showed some flattening.

    Then I got the wz.48 Tok out. Had to compare what came out of the Radom factory a decade later. Last batch was stove-piping on the 6g of AA#5 so upped it to 6.5g. More success, they ran 100%.

    This might be the last day of indian summer. Cold and wet moving in today. So yesterday Mark and I went for a walk looking for pheasants. Gorgeous day, we both shed the sweatshirts in 15 min. No shots but saw 1 hen. Took the 37's. He got his 30yrs ago and has eaten well off of it. I haven't got a shot yet with mine. Plenty of work to do there lol!

    Looks like it was a nice day out to walk the woods.

    The new mags for the wz35 got here so it's off to the range to try them out. They didn't like the rounds loaded to 1.09 oal at all, but ran the 1.12 oal rounds. Just the opposite of the mag that came with it. Go figure, lol! But, challenges like this is what keeps me interested in the shooting sport. If it all works the first try I'd be pissed off at getting screwed out of loading/shooting time. What did work was I put an 1/8 turn on the sight pusher to move the windage to the right. Another 1/8 turn should have that dialed in.

    As long as I was heading to the pistol range, had something to try in the GP100. The load I settled on for the M92 lever rifle. They shot ok and closer to poa than the light 148wc load I used for a comparison.
