    I have a Swedish rolling block shotgun in 24 ga. and it has a action very similar to the Remington no. 1 1/2 in size and shape which is a very nice size. The 24 ga. shot shells are as large in diameter as most any centerfire cartridge you would use...

    I was given a ring lapping tool and tried it once the way you are supposed to use it and found it would take a month of lapping by hand to get anywhere. I chucked mine in the lathe and drilled and tapped the end of the 1” bar and can now use a cut...

    Jedman replied to a thread Pumps are fun! in Rimfire Area
    I picked up this Win. M 1906 the other day. It has been relined so the bore looks like new and when I took it apart the action parts show very little wear. Itís been near 100 degrees here for the last 7-8 days so I havenít shot it yet. When my wife...

    I have several 50-70 single shots and really like the cartridge. A couple of years ago a friend gave me a bag of Win. 270 WSM brass and I noticed I could cut them down and make a rimless 50-70 with them. I never did anything with them but it does...

    Yes , On the right side of the chamber is the extractor that has a small spring loaded detent that snaps over the case rim. When you fire it the bolt is released and slams into the cartridge, the blowback energy recocks the bolt and moves the...

    I just picked this up yesterday. I never heard of them before watching this video, https://Youtu.be/g4iYoqKyN2c Once I started looking I found this one for sale online and bought it, I figure it’s unique enough that being a pre 64 Winchester and...

    I found a 16 ga. Comblain shotgun on Gunbroker a couple of days ago. In many years of watching for another Comblain rifle or shotgun at a reasonable price I stayed in the auction way past what I thought it was worth and finally dropped out of the...

    Jedman replied to a thread Chassepot in Black Powder Cartridge
    I was given a Chassepot rifle with a matching bayonet as a gift once when I was young and dumb and kept it for about 5 years. This was long before the internet so I didnít know nothing about what it was and someone offered to buy it so I sold it...

    Jedman replied to a thread Pitted Chamber fix in Special Projects
    I agree with TbG on this. It’s not rocket science, get it good and clean with brake cleaner or acetone and a toothbrush or small metal brush put a small dab on the pit and whittle a stick or what ever it takes to scrape it smooth. If needed later...

    I have used 4 D many times and all is well except their prices plus you need to insure the reamer when you return it. USPS has lost quite a few items for me, I am trying to get them to find a reamer sent back in April right now. Their insurance...

    Jedman replied to a thread 375 Win in Leverguns
    I bought a Win 94 BB AE barrel from Numrich that was pre chambered in 375 Win. I turned it to fit a 20 ga. shotgun barrel as a liner in a H&R Topper and made a lightweight carbine rifle with it. Like rking22 I use the thinner 38-55 brass and load...

    I watched your video and see something you may not be aware of. You are resting the barrel on your front rest. Even a 22 short has barrel harmonics and will shoot inconsistent when anything touch’s the barrel. Try shooting it off the forend and see...

    I have owned them in 12, 16, 20, and 410 and sold or traded them all now. The 16 ga. was a J C Higgins and was unsafe as if you ever squeezed the trigger with the safety on it wouldn’t fire but you could feel something move slightly and when you...
