    I've had several 219s in 30/30 and a couple 22 Hornets. We did some extensive 30/30 shooting with spitzers and other bullets than don't generally cycle in Levers. I would have to say the 219 will outshoot any 30/30 lever that I've owned. The Hornady...

    I had a 572 that was some kind of special model back in 60s. I think it was for a sharp shooter Rem employed for PR. Anyway I had a Weaver K4 on it and had it tuned for shorts. Shot a pot full of squirrels with it. I don't mean I had a one of a kind...

    I think it's called a Parallel Vise or clamp when both jaws move. Never saw one with single screw. I've got a good assortment of vises and don't have one both jaws move on one screw.

    I have a 52 that I got a couple years ago. I bought a new one in 1972 and played with it awhile and traded it off. This one I'm keeping. It drives the young 9mm nuts crazy ( that's because they think it's a 39 ) then one will get close enough to...

    My Win 94 is 0rd at 60yds. Off rest with 150gr Hornady and Lyman 66 it will do a inch/ 5 shot. I have Marlin 336 Maurader with Lyman 66 that will edge it a little. OPs gun probably shoots better than stock sights allow. I've had many pre 64 M94s...

    I've no use for a suppressor but if you have a lathe they are easy to make. The mag tube of 12g shotgun will make a excellent 22 tube. Common fender washers or mag spring retainers as baffles. Sections of 16g mag tube as spacers. Nose piece simple...

    I have had a couple H&R 45/70s that I took on trades. They shoot good but have poor triggers. There is much you can do with them in that department. I know my Bro bought one in 22Hornet and we ruined a dozen springs trying to lighten the pull.

    Weaver doesn't list them by radius but they do have one piece bases in that range. I think the one for a Savage 87 22 rifle would be close. Most of them are for more than one model. Also you might check Brownells they have blank bases for custom...

    I don't remember if it was Kal-tech at the time but I bought one in late 80s and it was junk. You didn't hear much about these pistols till they resurfaced in last couple years. The original might have been under another name brand.

    At worst a rebarrel. I have seen a couple 19s with cracked forcing cones. Worse than yours. Takes a lot of HV 110-120gr bullet loads to do this.
