1. For reasons unknown to us at SCC, it seems that SCC members who are AT&T users experience issues with emails and personal messages when using our forum. This is not unique to SCC and several other internet sites are reporting the same issues. Todo10, the company who helps us with the forum and hosting, have file a complaint with AT&T but we are not convinced AT&T will do anything about it. The only way around this is to register and use another email address not connected to AT&T. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause! Please check this link for more info: https://forums.att.com/t5/AT-T-Internet-Email-Security/Blocked-Domain-Email-or-IP-address-Questions-and-Discussion/td-p/4961060/page/28 More info will come when we know more! With kind regards Jim aka L61R

    Take it easy, Rick. Some of us consider barrels consumables & beings they have threads, I assume they were made to come off. If you recall, on another thread by Dodgyrog, which you participated in, he thought his Hornet barrel had gone bad & accuracy was dismal. A new barrel will bring life back to that old rifle & make it a useful tool once more. He can always screw the thing back on & make some purist collector happy.

    I know Paul and I agree that a barrel is a consumable. That said I would go out of my way to find another Hornet rifle to shoot before removing the barrel from a scarce as hens teeth rifle. Besides, barrels seldom come out unscathed when an attempt to remove them is made. Sorry but I just cringe at the thought.
