Swiss Army Tool Kit $135. plus post


The VICTORINOX “Swiss Army Knife” is over 100 Years Old. This useful pocket Multi-Tool was legally registered on June 12, 1897. Over 34,000 of these pocket tools with the distinctive Swiss cross leave the factory in central Switzerland each day.  Ninety per cent are for export to over 100 different countries and serve as ambassadors for Switzerland.
Karl Elsener, the company founder, wanted to create work in sparsely industrialized central Switzerland and counter the emigration spawned by unemployment. To go from hand-crafting to industrial production was at the time adventurous and required enormous determination. Today, this family business in Schwyz provides 950 jobs.
After the soldier’s knife, which every recruit receives upon entering the army, Karl Elsener developed a new, elegant and light weight pocket knife, with six practical tools. He called this new model the “Officers and Sports Knife”.
After an unparalleled success story around the world, the VICTORINOX “Swiss Army Knife” is even orbiting the earth as part of the standard equipment of the Space Shuttle Crew. The knife has also been successfully proven on expeditions: in the arctic ice of the North Pole; on the highest peak on earth, Mount Everest; in the tropical rain forests of the Amazon, and elsewhere. Time and again, it has been a life saver in situations of extreme danger and great need. The New York Museum of Modern Art and the State Museum for Applied Art in Munich have selected it for their collection of excellence in design, and, since Lyndon B. Johnson, US presidents present guests with VICTORINOX pocket knives.
Today, the “Officers’ Knife” is available in over 100 different models. Each knife must undergo seamless quality controls before being released for sale.

Accurate Firearm Design

Magazine Design

Due to the large diameter and bulk of 12 gauge  shotgun shells the tubular magazine is the only one adapted to them without making the outline of the assembled arm bulky and ungainly. Which are requirements for hunting shotguns. Of course pump and automatic shotguns are almost a historic relic due to the inability of our Australian politicians ‘to think’ and the lack of resolution in Australians to protect their “Rights”.  Of course the latest  design of Military shotguns has followed the principles of the early Evelyn Owen invention of the replaceable rotating drum, but it is definitely not the sort of gun for shooting on the ‘wing’.


Protecta revolving shotgun.

Advantageously, the design of the semi-automatic pistol has naturally supplied a grip which offers such a convenient place in which to locate a single column box magazine of ample cartridge capacity. Of the popular designs only the brilliant 1896 Mauser (Broom Handle pistol omitted its use. Not many designers would be so brave to design, manufacture and market a design that separated the magazine from the handgrip in a semi auto handgun.
In a revolver the cylinder of course is the magazine, and supplementary contains the chambers as well this has many advantages in reliability and safety when confronted with highly dangerous situations. If a round fails to detonate and ignite using a box magazine, instead of the soldier/policeman having to re-cock, remove the magazine, clear the chamber, re-fit the magazine, re-cock and re fire the cartridge, whilst the person that wants to murder them is advancing on them with a meat axe or a bayonet. On the other hand the rotary cylinder magazine each with its own separate chamber on the next pull of the trigger presents another round to be detonated by the firing pin.

Owen REvolingmachineGunTiny

Evelyn Owen had a fully automatic revolving magazine for .22 and .38 versions in the 1930s. Nothing new under the Sun and now 70 years later designers are realising the advantages of not having feed lips which damage soft lead projectiles.

Revolver designs are often considered as ‘old hat’, but have great unexplored potential as magazines. Historically it has only been that they have had small capacity mainly 6 shots that has weighed against them.

In designing any magazines the mechanisms which positions the top cartridge so that the bolt will smoothly push it into the chamber, dimensions and shape of parts are very important. A difficult problem may occur if we try to adopt an existing magazine and action to handle a smaller or larger cartridge than the one for which it was designed. It is sometimes possible to do this, but it involves much cut and try methods. If a double column magazine, for example, be a little wide for a certain cartridge, the cartridges will wedge and fail to rise, and the follower also must be of the exact shape. If the upper lips of any box magazine be not correctly shaped so that the topmost cartridge will always rise to exact position so that the bolt will engage sufficient of its head to slide it smoothly out of the lips and forward into the chamber, jams will always occur. Between the forward end of the box magazine and the chamber a ramp must be arranged in the receiver which will guide the point of the bullet straight into the centre of the chamber. Detachable box magazines are made of thin metal, and the lips are always liable to become deformed and cause trouble. This is a frequent cause of malfunctions in detachable .22 caliber box magazines, and with the magazines of automatic pistols, and this is the first place to look for trouble in such magazines. The lips can usually be bent back again into proper form, but this may involve many trials and errors.
In the early days of tubular magazines breech actions were usually so designed that they would handle only cartridges of standard overall length (examples, Winchester Models 1873 and 1876), but most later designs will handle indiscriminately cartridges that differ
materially in overall length. Thus many tubular magazine .22 caliber rifles will now handle without adjustment either the Short, Long, or Long Rifle cartridges, and most lever actions will handle cartridges with bullets seated much deeper in the case than they are in the maximum length cartridge.

LUGER Po8Feed Lips. (6)

Feed Lips on a Luger P08 are always delicate.

The old style Winchester Model 70 (Mauser type) rifle is made for a number of cartridges which have the same head and body diameters, but which differ considerably in overall length, and the same magazine is used for all. But for the shorter cartridges the magazine is blocked at the rear with a piece of sheet metal so that it is just long enough for the maximum overall length of that cartridge, and the bolt stop is so arranged that the bolt retracts only far enough to the rear to just engage the head of that cartridge as it lies in the top of the magazine. If, however, it should become desirable to increase the length of this magazine for a slightly longer cartridge it is an easy matter to remove the piece of sheet metal that blocks the rear of the magazine or move it further to the rear, and the bolt stop can also be cut back slightly. In designing a new manually operated firearm action it is well to construct it so that it will handle a cartridge considerably greater in overall length than what for which it was originally conceived, for no one can foretell what changes may be found worthy in length of bullet and depth of seating as a result of continued experimentation  with cartridges, maybe case less ammunition will occur in our lifetime ?

Norinco Model 213 ‘Tokargypt’ 9 shot Semi Auto

The Model 213 original basis was designed by John Moses Browning, the world famous firearm designer. In the late 1920s the Colt /Browning mechanism was redesigned by Russian, Feoder Tokerev, simplified for mass production and chambered in the powerful 7.62×25. It used the Mod 1911 swinging link, short recoil system.
To enable easy maintenance the hammer and lock mechanism can be removed as a single assemble. To improve the Browning feed system the ammunition feed lips are machined into the frame rather than relying on pressed tin. Which on a battlefield where magazines lips do not get the best attention is a great advantage in reliability and makes the magazines cheaper to produce. It was an extremely tough, reliable and powerful pistol and was later modified by Hungary for export to Egypt this was known as the Tokagypt. The pistol differs from the Tokarev in being chambered for the 9mm Parabellum, a fitted safety catch (WHICH SHOULD NEVER BE RELIED UPON) as well as the half cock safety.

As can be seen by the inset photo the barrels and chambers are all chrome plated.
It has a plastic wrap around grip stock, instead of the Tokerev ‘bakelite’ and a finger piece type floor plate on the magazine, which improves your chances of quickly getting it out and getting another one in after someone has rammed one in covered in mud. The M 213 Chinese version of this also has a chrome plated barrel shown in the above photograph. These are brand new unfired but have the usual scratch marks and rough corners as shown in the photographs. As standard the barrels are a millimetre short for club licences so are fitted with a slightly longer barrel. The steel is excellent and once a few surfaces, such as slides, are polished they are a slick an easy pointing pistol. Eight rounds in the magazine.

Understanding Reloading Ammunition
Primers the initiating mechanism of every cartridge

THE PRIMER is the crucial key to the whole performance — the “sparkplug”. Without it nothing happens. While admittedly none of the components is of much use without the others, the primer’s function is the first in the actions of the cartridge, and it is also the first active function to take place. As with the, “what came first the chicken or the egg”, we could have all sorts of arguments about which comes first and about which is the most important — nevertheless, we must start somewhere with the activity. And, the primer’s action is the first in the chain of events that place a bullet on a target a mile away.
The secrets of how and why a primer works will be covered in other chapters of this ever growing chronicle.  Here, we will concern ourselves primarily with the assembly of the primer to the case and the manner in which incorrect assembly or incorrect selection and fit may affect performance of the cartridge.

Generally speaking, Australian reloaders (and increasingly, in other countries) are concerned only with the Boxer-type or to use anther term for the same item, anvil-type primer which contains its own anvil held friction-tight in the mouth of the cup. Berdan-type primers with their separate case-contained anvil are a different matter entirely and will be discussed further in other chapters..
First, the only thing that holds a primer in the case for proper ignition is friction between the primer cup and the walls of the primer pocket in the case head. Consequently, an “interference fit” is required. That is, the primer cup is slightly larger than the hole into which it is pressed.
The assembled primer is a relatively fragile item. The cup is of thin, soft brass, the anvil of quite similar material, while the thin, flat pellet of priming mix is hard and brittle. If the primer fits too tightly in the pocket, then the priming pellet may well be compressed or distorted and fractured or split into fragments. In extreme cases, it may actually crumble. Consequently, there are limits to the amount of interference fit that can be tolerated. We must have enough to hold the primer securely in place, yet not so much that the priming pellet is damaged.
Simple cracking or fracturing of the pellet will not ordinarily produce a misfire, hangfire, or a detectable difference in accuracy except, possibly, in the very best of bench-rest rifles shot by championship marksman. Even so, a single crack will affect to some degree the burning rate and consequent jet of flame and incandescent particles that ignite the propellant charge. Though small, this effect should certainly be avoided.
Few reloaders have measuring instruments of sufficient sophistication to accurately check the inside diameter of primer pockets. It isn’t really necessary anyway, for the best guide to whether primers and pockets are of the correct relationship is the amount of pressure required to seat the primer properly. This is a form of subjective feel that one can acquire only with some experience. Generally speaking, this experience is best acquired by a bit of practice in priming, say, 100 new cases (which have never been primed before) with primers made for them by the same manufacturer. One quickly gets to recognize the feel of this with his own particular loading tool. It should be pointed out that the feel will vary from one make or model of tool to another and is most prominent in the small hand tools designed only for priming. Such as Lee Auto Priming Tools.
Some handloading presses, particularly those utilizing compound linkage, offer such a great mechanical advantage and so much force, that it is almost impossible to accurately feel a primer enter the pocket.
Some handloaders seat primers by slamming the reloading press handle down hard, making no attempt to feel in into its seat. This not only often distorts the cup and fractures the pellet, it can ignite the primer. Believe me, it’s a hell of a shock to have a primer detonate as you sweep down the press handle. The case and shell holder confine the blast so there is little probability of injury, but the sharp crack of tiny bits of metal going through the sound barrier is a little disconcerting. This is a NO NO anyway as ammunition so loaded isn’t likely to be much of an asset on the range or in the field some of it may not go off.
Primer pocket gauges are available even with them it all depends on feel, they can help you if you have a problem and so too could an inside micrometer.

Primer Seating deapthTiny

The”A” shows primer properly seated to contact bottom of pocket for precise, uniform ignition. “B” shows primer not resting on bottom of pocket, therefore free to be driven forward by firing pin blow, cushioning impact and impairing ignition.
accompanying drawing shows the general dimensional relationship of primers and pockets as manufactured domestically.

Assuming that the diametrical fit of primer to pocket is correct, the job is still far from finished. Failure to seat the primer deep enough may produce at worst a hangfire, and at best, slightly erratic ignition. The reason for this is really quite simple. The priming mix pellet inside the cup must be crushed against the point of the anvil in order to be detonated. Unless the anvil is resting on the bottom of the primer pocket,  against the solid metal of the case web,  it may be driven forward by the force of the firing-pin, consequently reducing the sharpness of the firing-pin blow, which in turn will produce less than perfect ignition of the priming pellet. Ignition of the priming pellet is brought about when the firing-pin actually crushes by friction the priming mix against the anvil. Obviously, if the anvil is not strongly supported, the required amount of crushing may not be brought about, even though the firing-pin indents the cup properly. The farther the anvil is free to move under these conditions, the more erratic the ignition of the priming pellet and, consequently, the propellant charge will be. If the anvil is free to move a sufficiently great distance, a complete misfire can be produced. Usually, such a misfired primer will ignite on the second or third firing-pin blow, for by that time the anvil has been driven down against the bottom of the pocket and is resting on or very near the bottom of the primer pocket. The only thing enabling it to resist the firing-pin blow is the modest amount of friction created by its legs friction-tight inside the mouth of the cup. That isn’t enough for proper ignition.
Because of the foregoing, combined with manufacturing tolerances in overall length of the assembled primer, depth of primer pocket, thickness of case rim, all combined with cumulative tolerances in the loading press or priming tool, it is not possible to depend upon a fixed adjustment of the priming tool to seat primers uniformly against the bottom of the pocket. In order to obtain maximum uniformity of ignition, with the anvil resting uniformly on the bottom of the pocket, it is necessary to feel the primer into place. Additional resistance will be felt as the legs of the anvil touch the bottom of the pocket, and the priming stroke can be stopped at that point. With a bit of practice, a remarkably uniform seating can be obtained in this manner.

Thoughts For the Week.

Returning after my research on the Owen Gun book in the deep south of NSW, which was very successful, the small town of Gympie was in shock. No, not because I had been away or returned, but in the centre of one of Gympie largest shopping complex a 16 years old youth had been stabbed to death. This sort of thing might be an everyday occurrence in Manchester UK or Washington DC, but for the quite country town of Gympie, a Daylight Murder in the streets was un-believable. Of course we all have sympathy for the victim with his three and half hour agonising death, also with the victims family who must be devastated. I have no sympathy at all with the people who jump on the band wagon, making profit out of death and misery. The same goody two shoes, who complain about firearm ownership immediately leap for the headlines and the airwaves from both ends of the political bandwagons. Some are ‘Bible thumping’ banners of everything, others are of the ‘if it feels good do it, New Age’ all unite in the concert for further disarming of the general public. There is no end to there greed and madness.

Apparently, the murderer  the 17 year old ‘junkie’ asked his mother for some money to buy some of the drug  “Ice” as he felt he deserved a fix. She denied him, so he threatened to go and kill some one, anyone. Just to impress her that he was serious, she still denied him so he went out and killed a person at random with a long knife. He picked out his random victim and chased him from the cinema centre across a busy street a 100yards through a busy car park right to the doors of the shopping centre, all of this time with his large knife in plain view as the victim got to the electronic doors there is a few moments delay. The victim had to stop running. There in plain view the murderer pounced and stabbed his victim a mortal blow. Two shop keepers, wrestled the junkie murderer and disarmed him, one receiving a stab wound himself. Most of the town including me, do not think that the ‘Junkie’ deserves to draw another breath and should suffer a similar demise such as the guillotine, although that might be too quick to be a fair punishment. The bandwagon brigade think that it is a photo opportunity to push their wagon. Gympie made the National news, one academic came on stating, “that the Customs were not controlling the import of knives and there was no policing of Camping shops”. He will probably use that in his next thesis for his Phd. Not one of them said that this was the penalty for disarming the community. That the deceased, was another victim of the disarmed community, which leaves everyone defenceless, at risk, to be the prey from people whom the law of murder means nothing. We have lost the human right to self defence, we cannot even defend a neighbour or a family member. So these cretins who have no right to breath can take a knife and strike with impunity. As the ‘junkie’ is under 18 he will get out in a months with a slap on the wrist and kill again.

Over a 100 years a go when Gympie was a boom Gold Mining town a local bank manager was serving as an escort for a large shipment of gold to Brisbane and was booked on the Cobb and Co stagecoach to Brisbane. Three of the local bush rangers, got to hear of the shipment and planned to accost him as he got on the coach at the staging post at the Northumberland Hotel, they knew he was armed with a revolver so planned to bail him up at a distance and wait until he had fired six shots and then rush him before he could reload. All of this within plain sight of the police station across the road. The bush rangers armed with an assortment of shotguns and rifles commenced the robbery and obviously not concerned at all that they may be committing murder. When they had counted six shots from the foyer of the Northumberland Hotel they bravely leapt into the open and rushed in, only to be shot down, one dead one wounded immobile, one wounded but ran off with a blood trail. The armed communities Hue and Cry quickly captured the escaping robber.  The robbers had made a mistake the bank manager had purchased a brace of revolvers so he still had a few rounds left. Blood in the streets, but in those days when the community was armed it was the bad guys that spilt there blood. It also was a massive deterrent, no one has tried a robbery in daylight in Gympie since the 1880s. How long will it now be before the next murder of an innocent in Gympie’s streets?
Last year, a man wearing a pair of shorts, nothing else, who perceived that I as a councillor had made a decision to remove his hot rod tuning business from a residential area, was leaping up and down outside the Owen Guns shop, chopping up our open sign with a machete in each hand, he was high as a kite on drugs or grog. He was, screaming he wanted to kill me and challenging me to a dual, with machete’s of course. The customers coming and going phoned the Police and after about an hour they came and took him away. They had to disarm him at gun point. He received a two months suspended sentence. That time, there was no chopped up victim as the potential victim was surrounded by firearms and ammunition, even though the lunatic was supposedly completely out of his mind he knew and acted on two known thought process. He knew, that as long as he did not come inside into private property I would not walk out and just shoot him down. He knew that I would not want the hassle of going to Court again. He also knew that if he did go into Owen Guns with his two machetes the only way he would be going out again would be in a body bag. That is why he stayed outside leaping up and down waving his machetes around. Guns save lives, maybe we should have a Gun shop in every shopping centre as a dual purpose of being a sanctuary like a medievil church, one place  where people can run to for sanity and safety. It appears that western worlds legislation and values are reversed to prey on the innocents and protect the evil ones, but we can truly only blame ourselves, all of us, for being so apathetic in letting our community fall into this legislative cotton wool, fools paradise. We will suffer for generations for ignoring the standards upheld by our grandparents.
