    Eddie2002 replied to a thread Rendezvous in Muzzleloading.
    My big rendezvous is Alifia over by Homeland in Florida. Been going to it every year for about ten years now. Even have a wall tent that I break out for it. It's usually the last week of January and goes primitive for a full week then the...

    I've used a soft lead slug screwed onto my ball puller and a steel ram rod. Lube the bore with some resizing wax from my reloading setup and gently tap the slug into the bore. Got to get the size of the slug just right and it doesn't work well on a...

    Vettepilot, I was able to get around 60%-65% density when compared to commercial powder like Geox with screening which is fine for using in my muzzle loaders. I tried compressing and corning but didn't have a good enough hydraulic press setup to get...

    That vent hole looks like it is off center to the left which is different from my two 99's but matches or is close to where one of the vent holes is located on a model 38. The bolt doesn't have any serial numbers on the top of the handle either but...

    I'm not sure if this will help but here's a link to some information that will identify your Arisaka. A simple way to tell if it's a model 38 or 99 is to count the number of vent holes in the top of the breach,a 38 has two while a 99 has one. I've...

    Go with a bolt action or pump .22, any semi automatic makes a lot of noise cycling the action. Years ago I put a small engine muffler on a Remington Nylon 66 and was impressed on how well it worked, slip on with a hose clamp. Not giving anyone ideas...

    Eddie2002 replied to a thread Who likes 22 Short? in Rimfire Area
    Just got a Stevens 15 A single shot bolt action, main reason I brought it home was to shoot .22 shorts. Have a Marlin model 60 but shorts really don't do well in it. Next on the list is to track down some .22 shorts for plinking.

    I've one of those scrapers in .50 caliber, looks good as an accessory in my shooting box but haven't used it in years. ;) A ball puller on the other hand is needed more than you realize.

    Eddie2002 replied to a thread Found a Stevens 15A in Rimfire Area
    Here's the finished rifle, I used three coats of a dark Walnut stain after sanding the stock with 150 grit. The finish is a Krylon spray gloss and the nose piece is just repainted black. I was thinking about not painting the nose of the stock and...

    Been working on refinishing the stock and just about have it done. Should of taken some before pictures and need to do the final assembly before getting any after pictures. It's looking good with a little touch-up on the bluing.

    It's the later model with the butt plate and the stock looks like a white wood, maybe birch or beech. Going to take my time on the refinishing and try to get it pretty again. Fired a couple of LR's through it so it works like it should.

    Well I took another one home today, was wandering around a local gun store and found over on the used gun rack a cute little single shot bolt action made by Stevens. The metal looked good with most of the bluing still there but the stock needed...
