    762sultan started a thread lyman 1878? in Single Shot Guns
    I am still looking for a single shot 45/70 and came across a Lyman 1878 that looks nice. It says made by Pedersoli to Lyman's specs. Is it comparable to a standard Pedersoli? Looks nice and price is right but how does it stand up? Has a Vernier...

    Well sad to report but it's back to square one. I went to the auction site and looked at a real treasure...aka a fence post in the shape of a gun. The first thing a saw, after rubbing off a coating of rust and grime, was IAB and my heart sank. This...

    If you're interested in 9mm or 45 ACP, both are listed in the closeout section at a good discount.

    I spent over 39.5 years creating or recreating objects of art. Never considered it work. Hope you retire with the same enthusiasm. It's a blessing to make a living at something you enjoy.

    Was the old #5 cast iron Ideal powder measure made with that in mind or just the way things were made at the time? Since I have one would it be a safer measure to use with BP?

    Other than trimming, what dangerous contact with the primer is involved? I have several hundred rnds that the powder has been removed. I've trimed, formed to 45 ACP, and loaded,without incident. I do use a Forster trimmer (collet) rather than my...

    marlinman93...I think you are correct in your thinking! I would love to have a Shiloh but funds are not available for that. I just hope I can afford the Pedersoil and at this time I'm not even sure what make it is. Just have to wait and see.

    I filled up yesterday at the cheapest local at $2.49. The last I bought was $2.29 three weeks ago. Even a news item on TV last night. Looks as if we're being scapegoats for another whim.

    I'll bet God isn't surprised by anything that happens. Why do some of us try to take credit for what happens naturally? After all, it only took him 6 days to create and only a day to observe and approve of it with time left to rest..........

    This gun will be sold at auction next week. I will try to buy it but don't have deep pockets to buy a new one. Hoping there aren't too many others who want it. If I can get it reasonable it will come home with me. I'll keep you posted.

    I have not seen the gun except in a photo and think it is 15 or 20 years old. What makes me think it is a Pedersoli is the stock. It has checkering on the buttstock and the forearm that looks like a Pedersoli that I have seen before. I will have to...
