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, and a fitted safety catch (WHICH SHOULD NEVER BE RELIED UPON) as well as the half cock safety.

TokagypTINYt

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.

Electronic Ear Muffs

SlimlineTINY1

Slimline Electoronic Ear Muffs
Hear and Protect
Hear normally up to 85 db Electronically reduces & protects hearing 
Protects hearing above 85 db
Able to hear normal conversations and sounds to 85 decibels
Over 200 hours of battery life
Auto-adjust headband
Solid state circuit
Rotary on-off volume knob
HOW THE ELECTRONIC EAR MUFFS WORK
These electronic ear muffs are a high standard ear muff in design, they are made to feel light and comfortable for all day use. They can be used as standard ear muff when the electronic component is not turned on and will passively reduce noise like any normal ear muff. They have a standard noise reduction rating of 29 decibel and are a Class 5.
Once turned on the microphone, located at the top of the ear muff, will pick up and amplify ambient noise. If some one standing next to you talks, their voice will be amplified through the speakers in both ear muffs. Should there be a loud noise, such as a firearm, the electronic ear muffs will automatically cut out and block the loud noise. The electronic ear muffs are designed to attenuate noise about 85 decibels, meaning that they will block out instantly, once the noise reaches a certain level. The electronic ear muffs allow you to control the volume level of ambient noise around you. On the shooting range with constant loud reports, the electronic ear muffs will block this noise. For range instructions or to communicate with another person, you can instantly hear them speak.
At the range or anywhere ear protection is constantly required, but you also need to hear instructions from others or you wish to be more aware of the ambient sound around you, these electronic ear muffs are what you need.

Accurate Firearm Design

Custom Built Rifle Actions.

The building of an action for a new or special design for one’s own use or for another purpose is a very tedious and expensive undertaking because every part has to be machined separately from steel and they all have to fit together, much more than that all the parts have to function together and work as a unit. You are creating a repeating single piston engine it converts dry fuel into energy and that energy drives the piston the projectile. Only a skilled machinist or a tool maker can successfully undertake such a job even after the design has been laid down on the drawing board, and he must have access to a fully equipped machine shop including facilities for heat treatment. Similarly the manufacture of a few such actions for sale has to be undertaken in a similar manner and is usually too costly. Breech action manufacture commercially is really out of the question except in large quantities to off set the tooling and set up costs. The fabrication of a single breech action by hand may run into months and cost millions of dollars.
This is why shooters who wish to have special arms made for their own use have had to use existing breech actions which have been manufactured in quantity and can be had at moderate cost. To one of these they can then fit a special barrel, stock, and sights, and can even adapt the arm to a special cartridge for which the breech action is suitable. Thousands of such arms are being built in Australia annually, whereas the building of a breech action of special and new design is of rare occurrence.

Before contemplating altering or building a firearm action, some thought must be applied to the purpose that the completed firearm will be applied to. As the weight of the completed firearm would be governed by the weight and design of the action that was designed for its purpose.
The desired weight of the completed arm should be taken into consideration. in designing a new breech action. Our present thought is that the weight of the complete arm, but not including telescope sight, sling, or cartridges loaded into the magazine should be approximately as follows:
For a young boy’s first firearm  4 ½  to 5 pounds.
For 10 to 14* years old boys rifles and shotguns—about 6 pounds. (* Depends on the 14 years old as some at that age are 6ft 4 in and built like Cassias Clay, then they carry your rifle)
For mountain rifles and light waterfowl shotguns 6 ½  to 7 pounds.
For heavy (For the swamp, duck shotguns 7 ½  to 8 ½  pounds.
For general hunting rifles 7 ½  to 8 ½  pounds.
For Infantry rifles 9 to 9 ½  pounds.
For long range game rifles, varmint rifles, and sniper rifles,  l0 to 11 ½  pounds.
For match rifles for highly competitive rifle shooting, 11 to 13 pounds.
For hand guns for target and military use 2 to 3 pounds.
The balance of the firearm should also be taken into consideration, although this is dependent rather upon barrel and stock than on breech action. However, the choice of a breech action design may make the completed firearm either too light or too heavy so think about it, as it better to make modifications to the action design at the design stage and not attempt to to reduce weight at the completion of the job. Very often this means that parts are reduced in thickness and strength which can cause severe problems at test firing time.

THOUGHT s FOR THE WEEK .
Elections Are Just Their Entertainment.

For those who feel cheerful or inspired by the results of the 2010 election, remember this time, remember where you were, when you felt good last. As unfortunately, if anyone is out there that still believes that anything good, in the cause of freedom can come from an election in the 21st Century, then last night, it was proved again, that elections are only part of the chains that bind us. The whole process of elections is dependent on an educated electorate, once that process is subverted and controlled we are its slaves.
The Greens achieved their balance of power in the Senate, with 9 seats, they even have a seat in the house of Representatives. If Tony Abbot or Julia Gizzard is Prime Minister it means nought, all legislation to be passed must suit the Greens or it does not happen. Legislation proposed by Labour or Liberal will be Tit for Tat with the Greens or it won’t happen, Liberals will have to sit around and think of legislation that suits the Greens, (sacrificial lambs) so that they can get there own wages bills through the Senate. Guess who will be the lambs?  Lee RHIANNON of the Anti Gun Coalition was elected as member of the Senate, for the Greens of course. The media ‘Push Poll’ with contrived questions and answers changing their allegiance from Labour to Green, building Profiles and attacking any independence.
There are 14 million Australians registered to vote on the roles. Yesterday 10 million bothered to vote, even though voting is compulsory and they face a fine for not voting. Can you imagine fining 4 million people, they make an excuse , it gets lost in the mail, or they pay the fine. With 77 % of the vote counted 618,429 voted for one of the largest parties, INFORMAL, so nearly 5 million eligible to vote refused, or had other things to do. More than likely there is another million or so who ensure that they are not on the register to vote so that they do not get a fine.   9 ½ million people voted for the four major parties. Of course the ones that did nothing, were the largest majority of all.
All the dedicated, sweat, tears and money donated by the brave few who tried to change things with independents and minor parties achieved nothing, but an expensive education, with a few single figure percentages.
Of course apathy Won the day, these days it seems everyday. In our area we are told by the Queensland police that there are 15,000 licensed shooters, in our Council area. That is the highest percent per population in Queensland and maybe Australia. Even in the rest of Australia, when we include their families, it should be the largest and best voting group in the country, they should be the king makers. Yet, they are told by politicians and the media that they are a minority and so believe they are a minority. All the customers that come in the shop, see the posters and talk politics, at that point they all detest the major parties and that sick looking homosexual Brown who is green on the outside and red on the inside.  When I went to the local church hall to vote, two of my farmer customers were handing out ‘how to vote’ cards for the LNP. They approached me sheepishly, I asked them what they were doing there, supporting a party that had sold them into economic slavery and taken their guns of them. They had answers, such as “it’s the better of two evils”. So they worked for their own destruction, the media had done its job. Our education system, combined with tight media control has them in the grip of its only party, party  A and party B, Tweedldum and Tweedldee. Shooters are still voting the same way, they believe that will make a difference.
In the 1960s and 1970s the socialists, had a concerted campaign to fill university with lecturers and professors of their political persuasion, so they supply the schools with teachers, the courts with judges, the TV stations, newspapers with journalists all from their Green on the outside red on the inside perspective, and it worked. We have payed for an educations system that destroys us. Our people think that freedom is choosing which TV channel they watch.  
We keep our kids at school until they are 18 and then they can vote. I have interviewed many of them, many of them that matriculated to university. I ask them questions, What’ is the largest island in the world, what the second highest mountain, what’s the longest river, who wrote ‘Great Expectations’, Who painted the ‘Morna Lisa’. What is 13 x 12, What is the capital of France, Who invented the light bulb, What did Beethoven write? If I get one correct answer I put the flag up, but in the main because most do not have any answers, I use it as a gauge as to what they know of the world around them. Most do not know what a ‘capital’ is, some think its just big letters. We have paid dearly for an education system that might teach them to use a mobile phone but gives them no idea or incentive to make one. I left school while I was still 14 and joined the Regular Army on my 15 th birthday, a limited education with poor grammar and spelling but I knew all of the answers to the above questions and a lots more. I can only conclude that there has been a campaign, ‘Stage one’  to Dumb Down the public over the last fifty years. Once that ‘dumbing’ has been achieved it makes ‘Stage two’ the power of the media, to have much greater affect as it lessens any chance of the people being able to think for themselves. They galvanise the public into believing that there are only two options, which really are the same option. There are many examples of the media making the people into ‘Lemmings’ (they are those little four legged animals that every few years, follow one another and jump into the sea,) like the rats in the Pied Pipier of Hamlyn following him into the river, then when not being paid, the Piper returns and pipes the children into the river. One of those very real examples of the media inciting a National destruction is when the Japanese media outlets informed the simple civilian peasants of Okinawa, (350 miles from Japan)  that they would suffer rape, torture and murder at the hands of the Americans, the Okinawans believed them and fought to the death, the American troops were at times confronted with battalions of women armed with pointed sticks who fought to the death. Massed suicides of the civilian population with the people throwing themselves off cliffs. 142,000 civilians died, even though the Americans dropped surrender pamphlets like snow, the people would not believe, that the Americans only wanted to give them money so they could buy Hersey Bars, Cocoa Cola and Chewing Gum. The Japanese had ‘dumbed down’ the population and indoctrinated them into believing that the Americans would do awful things to them and so they led the people into mass suicide, over the cliffs. Well the Pied Piper has played the tune in the western world our next generations have been well and truly piped up and are now formed up in controlled rows ready to go over the cliffs, to their doom. What do we do, join in the throng? Move to another country? Or do we try to educate and inform? Whatever, it has to be something different as elections only work to further enslave the people.

Thirty years ago we would have paid a $1000. for the same quality of vision and precision, a guaranteed leading optical manufacturer who warranties their products all over the World. They have a light gathering clarity that would have made those old dark Pecar’s appear like looking through a knot hole in fathers wooden leg. What’s more they are Waterproof. In 1970 during a storm in the Victorian mountains I can remember emptying my Pecar like a jug. It had a steel tube but it leaked like a sieve.I was so disappointed I hunted Samba for years with open sites as I wanted reliability. I took the low priced option then and will always follow that example, at this price I could afford to buy a spare one.

It’s a week since I received a copy of “Range Officers Hand Book” and since that time I am nearly at the half way mark. I’m amazed at the at the number of subjects you have covered making it one of the most informative books to be added to my collection. It must have taken you a considerable amount of time and experience to publish the book with information not available in other popular Gunsmith manuals. I would recommend the book to “Range Officers” and anyone interested in the sport of target shooting and hunting.

The Range Officers Handbook is an encyclopedia or omnibus of firearms and ammunition and the use of them, it has:-
•  90   pages of Information for Range Officers,
•  239 pages on Coaching to Win,
•  110 pages on Air Rifle History &Training,
•  33   pages on hitting Clay Targets,
•  34   pages on Reloading Ammunition,
•    6   page of Contents,
•  18   pages of Index,
•  38   pages of Old into New, ( Chronological History of Firearms)
•  23   pages of Glossary of Terminology on Firearms and Optics
•  Over 1000 drawings and photographs.
•  Over 530 pages in a A4 stitched colour hardback.,
Some, hopefully will read it cover to cover, others will pick a heading out of the Contents pages and read a chapter or two, but no matter how much you know about shooting, reference material is always needed, as even people who rate as genius cannot retain everything. The real ability is being able to find out quickly and easily. You can check that you have the correct terminology, in the Glossary, check the Index and go straight to the right page. This book can be used as an information tool for a lifetime of shooting.

You have now should all have the free Ballistic Calculator if you haven’t got it already there is a link further down this page. Without a Chornograph to give you a known velocity, shooting is all just guess work. There are only two known facts available to a shooter, the hole it makes in the target and its speed. (Pressure guns are not available to us mere mortals) You cannot test, your rifle and ammunition by how much noise it makes or how hard it kick’s you. Get a chronograph, they have never been any cheaper for this quality and if you don’t do it now they will be dearer when you want one next. Then you will be kicking yourself harder than a .600 Nitro Express. They fold up really compact to take to the range, open them up shoot throught the wires and the light meters will give you a print out on the little screen. They fit onto nearly every camera tripod.  One of our customers fired through the  clear screen, brought it back for warrentry, as it didn’t work.

UNDERSTANDING RELOADING AMMUNITION

MAKING POWDER.

Continued on from Edtion 42

Deterrents.
If you have been reading this series of articles and continue to do so, you will be one of the tiny points of a percentage of people in Australia who have any understanding of the methods and materials used in manufacturing smokeless powder. ( Well nearly smokeless) Knowing what goes into these processes, understanding why, and how gives you more confidence in making decisions in your overall reloading procedure. Even if you cannot remember in future months all the details you know where the information is, where it is stored on the Owengun.com page so you can find it or direct others to read this series of articles.  
If for artillery use, then DPB might be added for the same purpose. Artillery powders would also require addition of a deterrent at this point to slow down burning. Dinitrotolulene (DNT) is normally used for this purpose. It is highly hygroscopic so must be broken up and screened just prior to addition to the mix.
Once all secondary ingredients have been added, the mixer is closed and started. The operator leaves the building or enters a barricaded safety area while the mixer is running. Mixing is done by two counter-rotating Sigma blades, two-blade paddles resembling the letter S, rotating in a horizontal plane.
After a short time, the operator shuts down the mixer and uses a non-sparking tool to break loose any mix that has gathered where the blades could not reach it. Solvent mix is also added at this time if it appears necessary to the operator. Experience is invaluable in determining whether the mixture is too dry.
Mixing then proceeds to completion which is determined to a degree by elapsed time, but also by the operator’s experience. Considerable quantities of alcohol-ether vapours are generated by mixing and must be drawn off into the recovery system.
Flash fires were once fairly common in this operation, but in recent years they have become rare. Experience and sophisticated safety measures, plus the use of highly responsible personnel, paid off in safer operations.
It is worthwhile to mention here that scrap powder generated in the various processes is reworked by either using it (plus solvent) to charge the mixer, or by adding it to the nitro-cellulose charge. The scrap consists generally of broken powder strings, defective grains, “heels” from the various processes. Nothing is wasted, as is clearly shown by the vast and expensive recovery systems.
Coming from the mixer, the powder is ivory to yellow in colour, depending on the mix, and looks somewhat like damp brown sugar. It is partially colloided and the process must be continued in a machine called a macerator.
The powder is transferred directly to the macerator where gear-like blades and teeth knead the mixture under tremendous pressure. The blades are closely meshed and rotate in opposite directions. Solvent content of the powder is very important at this stage, neither too wet nor too dry. No more solvent can be added during maceration, yet the powder will ignite if it becomes too dry while the machine is running. Considerable heat is generated by the kneading process, so the macerator is fitted with a cooling jacket through which refrigerated
alcohol is circulated. By this means, powder temperature is held at about 68°-72°F.
The macerator continues the colloiding operation, converting the powder to a rubbery mass that can be pulled apart by the fingers. It is removed in irregular chunks and transferred immediately to the preliminary blocking (pre-block) stage.
In pre-block, the rubbery chunks are charged into the cylinder of a large vertical press. With the press closed, ram pressure is applied very slowly to force excessive solvent from individual chunks. Pressure is slowly increased to compact the colloided powder into a solid block. If pressure is applied too fast, an attendant temperature increase may cause the powder to flash and burn, that would not conducive to the press operator’s peace of mind. When the compressed cake is fully formed, it is ejected from the press cylinder and immediately transferred to the “macaroni” press in the next barricaded compartment.
The macaroni press performs two functions; that of extruding the powder into thin strands (thus its name), then re-compressing them into a solid block.
The pre-block is placed in the chamber of the macaroni press. The ram applies force to the top of the block, forcing the plastic powder to flow through a number of individual dies set in a plate in the bottom of the cylinder. It emerges as long, round strands which fall directly into the cylinder of a floor-level blocking press with its ram retracted.
This extrusion continues the colloiding action begun by the mixer and carried on by the macerator. Screens placed between the powder blocks and the die plate, catch and hold un-colloided lumps of nitrocellulose or other free ingredients that still exist. Great pressure is required to accomplish the extrusion, being built up slowly to just over 5,000 psi.
When extrusion of a cake is complete, the macaroni press is stopped and the powder strands broken off and dropped into the blocking press. This press is then capped and its ram rises to compact the mass into a twelve inch diameter cake fifteen to eighteen inches long. The cake or “block” is then ready for the graining presses.
