    Very cool! Speaking as someone who has fitted barrels to these Savage takedowns I don't blame you for not wanting to take more on. Which rotor did you use? Modified? Which cartridge guide did you use, and did it pose any problems?

    Definitely Springfield. Highest Rock Island number was approximately 350,000. Leftover unmarked RI receivers (all nickel steel alloy by then, since #285,000) were shipped to Springfield where they were eventually folded into their pipeline.

    At the risk of starting yet another debate about the safety of shooting a low numbered Springfield, have you considered that? Does it at least have the "Hatcher hole" (on the left side of the receiver ring) which provides a modicum of safety if...

    No bolt in the gun? Uh oh.

    It would appear from the pic that it's an unaltered M1. (M1's reconfigured to M2 were given a stamped "I" after the "1" in M1.) The bolt would tell the tale as that was the main difference. That and the magazine. If you forge ahead with the...

    Patina= rust. Just a milder friendlier form of rust, but rust it is. Keep it oiled like everybody is saying.

    When you say "1922" is it a real M1922, a M1922 M1, or an M2? M1922's are scarce as hen's teeth, unaltered M1's almost as rare as most all were upgraded to M2 configuration. Yes and no about the stock swap. The .22 barrel is a little thicker. Not...

    Envious of your light trigger pull! But, I would take the precaution of subjecting it to a "slam the butt on the ground" test to make sure it doesn't jar off.

    It's not that 219's have bad barrels, it's that they have mean triggers that are not amenable to adjustment. Kind of hard to make bughole groups when you're having to squeeze the trigger with a death grip that would make a boa constrictor proud.

    gnoahhh replied to a thread Savage 219 in Single Shot Guns
    I've never ever heard of one chambered for a rimless cartridge. Not saying it couldn't be engineered, but it would be a PIA and the net result wouldn't justify it to me. I recently picked up one in .25-20. It should be a hoot, and thanks to...

    gnoahhh replied to a thread .223 flat base in Military Rifles
    This, primarily. I would put a fairly heavy chamfer on the case mouths before I started fretting about worn expander balls and stuff. I have followed that protocol for about a half century now and I honestly can't recall collapsing a case mouth with...

    I have a .30 throating reamer which works superbly with long heavy bullets. It's a tapered reamer- 1 1/2 degree included angle (that's 3/4 degree per side). It has interchangeable pilots that ride the lands from .299 to .302 in .0005" increments for...

    For sale: One full box/1000 Lyman .35 GC's, and a partial box of approximately 7-800 of same. $25 shipped in a SFRB (if you don't mind the contents of one of the boxes be dumped in a baggie as it is too big to fit in a SFRB).

    With no heirs (I'm the last of the bloodline) I hope to heck that I have a chance to see that all my odd ball stuff (which is mostly what I own) is gifted to deserving parties as well as the kit with which to manage them. Barring that, I guess I...

    Don't bother slugging the bore and measure throat diameter instead, via either chamber cast or pound cast, and size bullets accordingly. You're welcome.

    Yep. That and the need to figure out how to extract rimless cases. Have you considered .22 K-Hornet or .218 Bee (or its big brother .218 Mashburn Bee. Nips at the heels of the Fireball). For real exclusivity perhaps the R2 Lovell. (I'm being...
