    ironic that the 18th century hotbed of colonial freedom has sunk to the depths of stupidity it's enshrined in today. the declaration of independence signers are rolling in their graves for sure.

    when i got the henry .223 i loved everything about it - the build, components, fit and finish - but that danged trigger AND hammer were the gawd awful pits! i would never have bought the gun if i didn't read up on the work that megasupermagnum had...

    They use the correct "Creedmoor" ... as we know, that's the concatenation of "Creed's Moor", the Queens, NYC, Creed family farmland the NRA used for that famous long range rifle shoot out twixt the USA and Ireland. Imagine a 1000 yard match in the...

    depends on which pedersoli creedmoor rifle too, there are at least a few iterations and i've found the spex of pedersoli guns to sorta change over time. for me, the 34" bbl was just too dang long and muzzle heavy, and the entire bodine w/sights...

    didn't have a creedmoor version, have had a .45-70 bodine 34" and three 30" silhouettes in both .45-70 and .40-65 cartridges. the 34" bodine was a bear for offhand for me, the 30" barreled guns were fine for offhand at 200 yards for me.

    what i meant is that BACO offers their various caliber compression plugs for various manufacturer expander die bodies - lyman, rcbs, redding. if you already have one of those expander die bodies, buy the appropriate plug to fit that body.

    indian joe is correct - do it right. just get the proper BACO plug and stick in a lyman "M" die body and be done with it.

    doghawg, i think there's always gonna be some variables to all guns. in addition, in your case, you did the spring swap to a gun that wasn't "factory stock", but after henry "worked on" its trigger in some manner not once but twice. that might...
