    Not that I can add much to an already great thread, but..... One of my Arisakas was bequeathed to me by a now deceased friend. He modified the rifle many years ago by: 1. Removing the barrel. 2. Facing off the breech/shoulder so that it would...

    Which implies to me that it would be possible to combine the sear with the trigger if you move the top pivot point to the back of the trigger and get something like this:

    With a typical top pivoting trigger, you need an extra part to change the rotation direction of the trigger into an opposite rotation direction of the sear. Because of the rounded contour of the sear and the cutout in the bolt, the bolt would...

    We all have opinions. For $25 the Lee tool is a best buy as that term is commonly understood. I have two of each of the tools in questions so I can at least compare from experience. If someone considers the $85 RCBS a best buy so be it. I much...

    This is just for a fixed barrel test device, so the bolt would be manually retracted each time. I did not add in the spring that would be necessary on the rear of the trigger to make it return forward either. I suspect that if someone wanted to...

    Call me old fashioned, but a revolver without a hammer just doesn't look *right* to me. And that includes the ones from S&W, regardless of how long they've been around. But then again, I don't like semi-autos without hammers either... :)

    I'm designing a test barrel rig for a project that I've been working on and was considering what I would need for a trigger. I don't have a milling machine, so I'm a bit limited on what I can do. I did a bit of a web search on trigger design and...

    No iron sights so barrel length is not the important. I really like Ruger's mags but past barrel issues keep me away from them. I may have to try on in 17 HMR.

    I have two of the RCBS tools. For the $$$, it is not a "best buy." That is like saying the Pro Melt is a best buy for the $$$. I have a Pro Melt which cost three times as much as the Lee Pro 4, 20. I have a 4-20 as well. The Pro Melt and Automatic...

    I have one also, in excellent shape except for a very minor dark spot in the grooves in one spot. Other than that, the bore is mint and I really should load up some "easy" 45-70's and take it out for a spin. Ah, summer's coming................
