    I once worked with a drunk who only ate meat and drank cheap beer. Always foul around him. He would let them build up and back up to air returns in the homes we were workin in and crop dust the entire home. Idiot!

    GET a new firing pin spring. It will go away. Get a wolf brand one. Preferably a extra power one if available. If this does not fix the problem then you will need to have the bolt head bushed. These are the two very common problems with remington...

    Guns that shoot both calibers such as Ruger single six use .224 bores. 22lr and 22wmr have the same pressure interestingly enough. It was common to do this conversion years ago. 1885’s are darn nice guns. If it is original I would leave it...

    I definitely want to keep it at the 8-10" area. The short throat is what I am worried about. I do have a bunch of lapping bullets but I don't want to use them unless I have to.

    they are fantastic knives. Just make sure to use coconut oil on them after you use them so they don't rust. Or put a patina on them to force it to make it look a 100 years old. Mustard works well. Anything acidic. You just want to darken the blade. ...
