    I remember back n the late 60's when I started buying and selling guns there were a lot of M1 carbines around for $20 sometimes less. Here in OH I never seen much use to own one. About the only thing that you could legally shoot with one was...

    nonferrous, Tim is correct your rifle is a no. 2. To me the no. 2 is the best looking and elegant of all the Remington rolling blocks. Due to the less rarity, I would value your rifle around $ 500.00. Jedman

    Are you sure it was a no. 1 1/2 ? Remington made rolling block models 1, 1 1/2, 2, 4 and some consider the no. 6 a rolling block all in 32 RF. None of them have the value of a no. 1 1/2. Jedman

    I had a uncle that was a single guy forever and had lots of guns. At one time he lived in a trailer that was about a hundred yards off of Lake Erie and there was a water channel big enough for a small boat to access the lake right behind his...

    Remington 1 1/2 rolling block rifles are quite scarce. I bought one a couple years ago that someone had converted from rimfire to 38 spl. centerfire by rebarreling it with a barrel that has the chamber end off center and the muzzle end on center. I...

    Sounds like you have some extra parts for a M 336 that want to be reconfigured. That would be a good OH deer cal. that not everyone else has but then you have a half dozen or more M 336's in cals. that no one else has now. Life is to short to stop...

    I might try the 40-50 strait wall. In a light no. 3 it wouldn't recoil to bad and is useful for most anything at moderate range. Jedman

    Rev, I like all Martini rifles, but I am a lefty and probably couldn't shoot your new rifle. I have never seen one with the under lever that latches the cocking lever. Very Nice ! Jedman

    Dave, It sounds like you don't already own the gun, just looking correct ? Being it has been rebarreled it's not a collector gun I would consider rechambering it to 25-35 if it is a rifle you would like shoot in that cartridge and could be bought...

    I am with all that say forgetaboutit , I have refinished many guns just for the experience and I liked them better when I did it. About the only thing I hate to see is when someone uses a heavy hand with sandpaper on a gun stock. Jedman

    Hello and welcome ! You didn't give approximate lengths from the rim to shoulder length but from what you have it sounds like a 43 Spanish. Most all of the Argentine RB's I have seen have all been 43 Spanish. Hope you can get set up and shoot...

    Sounds like a neat old lathe. I once owned a early South Bend that had flat leather belts and a drive assembly that someone built it too had worn babbet headstock bearings but could still do accurate work. I'll bet if this is your first stub...

    Wolfer, Your plan is fine. I had a 410 like you are describing where the barrel was quite thick thru the forend then tapered quickly to a normal skinny 410 size. You will have plenty of area for the epoxy to make a strong bond. I have used the...

    Andy, I see the 40-82 is really a 45-90 necked to 40 cal. The overall length of loaded rounds could easily exceed 2.775 and feed into the 12 ga. Martini action. My wildcat round is more than a 1/2" longer and no problem. If dies are available and...

    There is a guy on marlinowners forum that has modified Marlin 336 rifles in 35 Rem. to feed slightly longer cartridges and throats them for long bullets. He claims in his "Safari Grade " 35 Rem. He gets 2150 fps with a 310 gr. bollit. Jedman
