So now the receivers are 85 years older and more brittle with age than in 1929.

A man who used to post on CSP was a gunsmith in the 1950s. Once he took a small ball peen hammer and hit a low number receiver. It broke into 3 pieces.

How is a receiver more brittle today than it was in 1929?

Was he referring to the cutoff as the safety?? I watched that part a couple of times and I think he was toggling it when discussing the safety.

Metal does age.The bonds that hold it together relax.Might take hundreds of years to really become dangerous,but it does.Kids who talk sh*t don't offset old guys at gun shows.68 is 68 more than most people are willing to be around when one lets go.

Wow.
I keep thinking that Darwin helps strengthen the herd, but every moron with a video camera is potentially putting innocent people at risk as well. Where does this clown claim his credibility comes from?

In full disclosure, I have shot my LN 1903 with full power service loads, but after reading about the risks, I only do so using sub-caliber chamber inserts, and have not done so for many years.

Holy cow! I read the comments section. You were very patient with him, Chuck. Seems like a nice enough kid. Nonetheless, I am amazed at what a bunch of ignorant morons we are raising these days. "My opinion trumps your fact and experience" seems to be their rallying cry. When confronted by fact, they call it opinion. No wonder we have these idiots running our country.

A verifiable expert tells this kid his opinions are wrong and he sticks with it. Absolutely amazing. Every now and then I catch myself at the range having forgot to change out my prescription sunglasses for good solid, "eye pro". People like this kid are the reason to wear it. I also do my best to see what my neighbors on the shooting bench are doing. You can never be sure what they're shooting, but you do your best and if it seems sketchy - time to leave.

Looked like the kid had his rifle either re-parkerized or painted to look new (since he said it had been in a fire). Shooting a low serial number gun, that had been in a house fire...wow. I hope he has lots and lots of insurance.
