    Unfortunately I don't have the time to do it myself but Lee Shaver does and for a reasonable price. Now I just have to decide weather I want it rebored to .38-40 or .44-40 so I can send the barreled action out to JES reboring. I'm leaning towards...

    Good to know, thanks fellas. Its measuring .3825". I'm thinking about getting Jared at Arsenal to cut one of his #379499 molds to .383" and then using a .384" lube sizer die so I can lube them as cast. But just to be sure I'm going to measure the...

    Thanks, that's good to know cause the other option is to find a trustworthy smith to convert the original block to center fire and I would think that's an expensive option.

    Do a Remington model 1 and 1 1/2 rifles use the same breech block ? I just got a 1 1/2 short range target in .32 rimfire with a rotten bore but nice wood and action. Because of the bore condition and caliber I'm thinking about having it rebored to a...

    Tex,have you tested it since you cleaned it? One of the guys I was shooting a match with yesterday was having the same problem. The primers were just getting tapped. Something was binding the firing pin in his 1895 .45-70. Can you try it with a...

    Since S&W bought and gutted T/C Iv'e noticed that some folks are slowly starting to collect the older T/C's especially the seneca and cherokee models with a little bit of interest in the hawken, renegade, and big bore as well.

    Well here is a little update on that plunger kit. The vendor apparently is a take the money and run type cause the parts are a no show,they don't return emails or answer the phone. I had to contact my cc company after making the parts myself.
