    hpdrifter replied to a thread Why lever guns in Leverguns
    I am about resigned to the fact that I'm gonna HAVE TO go with Henry's edition of it. They won't come out with a loading gate 45 Colt in normal dress, so this might be my alternative. Gonna wait em out a couple more months tho. I don't care for...

    I've made so many mistakes with guns, it'd start me drinking if I revisited them. The worst was a Springfield 03A3, Remington in real good shape I let go for roughly $120 worth of crap merchandise I wanted at the time. Sorry, my mind started...

    If you look close at those 45-70 boolits up yonder, you'd see I'm lookin at ~300 grainers. I've got Lee's 405 HB. It's in poor shape though and was looking to get an Accurate mold of multiple cavity design. The examples above are from his...

    I'm not made of money any more. I just retired.:-) I am considering a purchase for a 38-55 mold and/or a 45-70 mold for PCing. I don't want to buy both styles just to find out.

    Curious to what the majority think would be the better design for PCing: The groove design, not somuch to overall scheme or style. Tumble lube design vs normal lube grooves. I'm not too sure I'd like the plane shank bullet for PCing, seems...

    hpdrifter replied to a thread Why lever guns in Leverguns
    To me, a lever gun is a blend of art and mechanics. Mechanical art! Form AND function. A truly enjoyable device. Sometimes, I just like to work that action. Very few bolts have had that blend to me. A few have. I recall the first MarkX I...

    I'm somewhere between these. I hate to go bother the man to get more information and pictures just to low ball offer. Next time I go over, he has already stated he's gonna give me a "hard" sell and no reasonable offer refused, so I'll take some...

    I have a chance to pick up a Springfield Trap Door.;rifle, full stock with cleaning rod along with what I think is an Egyptian Rolling block. No caliber marking on it except maybe in Egyptian, which I can't read. It's got a tag on it that says...

    Come to think of it, the tube doesn't actually hold any weight, soa to speak. It's gotta hold a bit, but the bullets and/or brass rests on the pusher, however, you gotta lock the tube in place so the spring won't work. I went to Lowes today to...

    I like the tube space idea. Ought to be pretty nifty.After looking at it, made me kinda think that if you used the long bolt from Lee, I think4" if you could forego the nut to tension things. Drill a hole in the bolt for a hitch pin, use spring...
