    My 586 doesn't have a lock. It's a mid 80's production. The locks started in 1998. The 586 came out in 1981.

    I don't ever remember it being for sale. All of mine came for factory woodcutter ammo.

    Lots of farm raised chickens never get out of a coop and live on chicken feed year around. Easier collecting the eggs that way.

    On what you are calling fresh was are they feeding the chickens? If it the same as the large producers are using you would not taste a difference. Eggs from free ranges chickens have much more flavor in the spring, summer and fall when they eat...

    YES! If your goal is long range precision there's no substitute for putting rounds downrange. Lots of rounds.

    I generally take things a bit slower than Steve does with his video but he's done this job dozens, maybe hundreds of times. I'm living proof that no aspect of gun repair can ever be "idiot proof" but as I recall this video gets about as close as we...

    May be on to something there. I've noticed stainless M77 bores can be a bit rough, one in particular is most accurate after several rounds. I generally take a gun with a dry, fouled bore hunting. Another thing I've noticed is that CLP left in a bore...

    375 Winchester brass is available from time to time, I hope you'll be able to find some. My 375 hunting load of Rx7 under a 375449 GC clone is max and I wouldn't recommend it in 38-55 brass without further research on your part. I've seen heated...

    Cooler with steel plate on bottom, filled with rubber mulch and rubber mat glued to top, then tipped on edge - but only have shot mild subsonic loads at 12 yards.

    I know for a fact the with solid base wadcutters it make a significant accuracy difference. If it didn't make a different in HBWC's there would be no reason for the manufactures to incur the extra expense of producing wc brass.

    Double triggers were considered to be more reliable. On hard recoiling rifles some prefer to use the rear trigger first to prevent doubling. Good discussion here.

    I've gotten more and paid less so it would depend on the gun. Y'all keep that frozen stuff up there! My fellow Texicans can't figure out how to drive on it.

    No, it's part of my reference library. I'll probably go thru this gun and tweak it a bit someday or buy another R92.

    Hadn't thought about smaller groups, this one shoots very well. Almost as good as my early guide gun. Could be interesting. I've got a pretty good 'smith but I like the way the one piece trigger feels and I don't mind doing the easy jobs myself....

    Yes, I found it useful and well made. Turns out my R92 has had all or most of the described work already done. The video was useful in figuring out how to install the bolt-mounted peep sight IIRC.

    I lucked into a similar rifle a few years back and like reivertom I wouldn't have hesitated to buy the one in the OP. The 99 isn't very popular around here but the 99 is a great rifle. The 300 Savage is an interesting cartridge as it did indeed...

    Looking forward to seeing your new rifle, there's something special about the 1873. Even though I mostly collect the original Winchesters the Miroku and Uberti versions always catch my eye.

    I've had a Remlin 1895 for a few years, found it to be as accurate as my older Guide Gun. Even likes the same loads! Wood is the typical ugly Remlin paint job and the trigger was pretty disappointing but I fixed the trigger issues and I can live...

    No, a firearm on the registry as a SBR is still a SBR no matter what longer barrel you put on it unless you notify BATFE of a permenant change and ask for it to be removed from the registry

    148 gain hollow base wadcutters are flush with the front of the case. The base extends deeper into the case than with conventional bullets. If the case tapers to soon it sizes the base of the bullet.

    The larger hunting parties had a blacksmith wagon in addition to the cook wagons. Both wagons had coal bins on them if needed.
