    NoZombies, I am drooling over the Two Stevens rifles; but sadly, my financial position will not allow me to even make an offer for one of them. Have a happy Presidents' Day Monday. Chev. William

    For those with sufficient Funding and life energy it is a plan. As a retired Disabled Veteran of 76 years age, and part owner of the home I live in, it is not a workable option. It seems to me many of the "Progressives" who voted in the current...

    Chuckling, I guess necking the "Ladybug" down to .172", or .177", is theoretically possible; but I wonder why not neck the .25ACP case down to .177" like others have done in the Past, making a bottle necked Cartridge? Or did you mean to make a...
