I use a barlow lens quite a bit with my telescope. It is usually inserted before the diagonal if you use one or before the eyepiece if you don't. The barlow lens for your telescope will double the power of the eyepiece used.

However, despite what the manufacturer claims for your telescope things will look quite poorly if you try to view at 180 power. Generally you'll get the best images by using 50x for each inch of your objective lens. For example, your telescope has a 50mm lens. That's roughly 2 inches. 2 inches times 50x gives you a maximum useful power of 100x. Depending on the viewing conditions you may be able to exceed this or not even reach it. Things will look blurry and dim when you try to use too much power.

Your power or magnification is calculated by dividing your telescope focal length which is 360 mm by the eyepiece focal length. You have two eyepieces with focal lengths of 4mm and 20mm. If we divide 360mm by 20mm we get 18 power. If you add a barlow to that you get 36 power. Dividing 360mm by 4mm (no barlow) we get 90 power. That would be your maximum useful power.

Therefore, you should be able to used the 20mm eyepiece with or without the barlow but the 4mm should only be used without the barlow.

I hope all of the math wasn't confusing.

1409797 winchester 94, can't find date of manufactor,just between 1941-48 can you help please...


The war years weren't recorded as far as anyone knows. Even Winchester doesn't know. I'm sure someone somewhere does but there are no books that I know of that have those years. If it's just a trivia thing for you, you can estimate it to a degree. The last number recorded for the year 1942 is 1221289. The only number recorded for 1948 was 1500000. They didn't know how many they had made during the war years so they just started again at 1500000. That makes 279,000 manufactured from the first day of 1943 to the last day of 1948. That's six years inclusive. That's approx 46.5k guns per year. Yours would be approx 1946 by that.

I have a hand gun made by Hopkins and Allen Arms and the serial number is 9491. I would like to know the year it was made. Thank you


You would have to know the model and variation. There are H&A collector's reference works that might tell you. Mid 1910s would be a good guess.

Where can I buy daisy model 25 repair parts?


Daisy Gun Works
632 N Avenida Tortuga
Green Valley, AZ 85614-3459
Phone: (520) 305-3114
Email: Daisy@IntegrityGunsmithing.com
To receive a repair quote, please identify the model of the gun and where it was made. Either "Plymouth, Michigan" or "Rogers, Arkansas" will be stamped on the barrel in the vicinity of the rear sight. If you don't know the model of the gun, it's not a game stopper. Describe what the gun is doing (or not doing) and tell us if any major parts need to be replaced. Cost of stocks, levers and shot tubes (for example) would add to the standard repair rates.
If you simply have questions, we welcome those as well.

How do you uncock a stevens model #311 series h doublebarrel shotgun that is not loaded


1: point it in a very safe driretion
2:do not touch the triggers
3: slide the safy back , toward but. that is safe mode.
4: press the lever to the right and brake the action
In normal condition the shells will be pulled back to a point you can remove them.
Remember safe on! do not touch the triggers.
the safe is behind the break lever.. If you an not break the action, common if the gun has been loaded for some time the shells can be stuck. suggest you get it to a GUN SHOP.
