    I like them both and I own a 460. I have spent time in remote Alaska but I don't consider myself anywhere close to be an expert on brown bear defense. To me the X-frames are just to big and heavy for every day carry. I have seen a couple of 8...

    I am more familiar with Schuetzen rifles. Most of these rifles used grease groove bullets and a false muzzle. It's my understanding that the bigger slug guns used paper patched bullets and false muzzle. These bullets had the paper applied as the...

    If you made it you should know what material it is made of? If it is medium or high carbon case hardening is not the appropriate hardening method.

    And that is what it is all about and you are creating your own history with them. I have a couple of originals that have some documented actual "history" but that "history" is from people I didn't know and events I didn't participate in. ...

    The first question is why are the screws soft? If they were manufactured that way chances are the carbon content is to low to heat treat. If that is the case the only option is case hardening with a product like Cherry Red. ...

    If you were closer I would trade your for some current match but it's not worth the hassle of shipping to me. If you do opt to shoot it I would like to work out a deal for the empty boxes for my man cave.

    Yes history matters to some of us. That is why I DO NOT use originals for things like SASS competition. Why take a piece of history wear it out? I have at least a dozen firearms manufactured between 1860 and 1920. I do my best to preserve them...

    And so what that it's a copy? Some copies are better than original, some are equal and some are inferior however they do the same thing. Short of collecting function is what matters. Your example of a wife verse a blow up doll would be valid if...
