    I saw this at a local gunshop recently. It is in very good condition, blue fading to patina. It has all the metal work off the stock, and stock shortened to a sporter length. It has the buttplate removed and a ugly red pad added. The bore is bright...

    50 and 54 round balls do great, 125 yds and under, but after that they shed energy quickly. Now here in Ky, most of those deer shot here will be 75 yds and under, with the long shot being around 200 yds or so. I own 23 different ML;s and hunt with...

    I have a 1867 Husqvarna Roller. good bore and good shooter, but the sights were awful. Since it is a shooter, I put a ramped sweat on front sight with a square blade front, and a modified Mauser peep sight, that I milled the base flat on and drilled...

    I have about 3 large cans made by Lyman, not sure they still make it or not. I sit my bullets up on a cheap plastic lazy susan in cross pattern, that way I can spray one side and rotate them around, then switch my position and spray the back side as...

    is this the year they switched back to machined steel receivers? Also, does it have the adjustment screw in the bottom of the lever plate, to adjust for wear. If the answer to both these questions is yes, I am very interested.

    Heated with one for years before I replaced the old 1950's space heater with a real furnace. Make sure you use water clear kero, the red dye they add destroys wicks and stinks when it burns. I had a small 300 gallon bulk tank I used to have the...

    15 grains of Unique, with a 350 gr Lyman/Goulds HP I mold myself. I sorted them by weight, did not size them, sprayed with Moly coating to completely eliminate leading.

    I was a at a local gunshop today, when a guy came in wanting to sell the H&R trapdoor. The owner passed on it, referred the guy to me, said I was the 45/70 nut in the bunch. We went outside to look at his rifle. He said it was his dads, who recently...

    I have had this trapdoor for over a year. It has nice blue fading to patina, a very nice bright bore with sharp rifling. It shot a good group, but I had to raise the Buffington sight up to get it to shoot to point of aim. The guy I got if off of had...

    Nek shot that is what I described in the post before yours. I have been gunsmithing for 35+years, and once you do a good trigger job on a specific action, it does not take long to repeat the process. I took notes and measured what I did with a mic,...

    I have 3 heavy single shots. 2 Remington rollers, and Sharps. They all shoot great, but are a handful. I hunt a lot out of blinds or stands, so I usually have my wife drop me off, or drive a 4 wheeler within 100yds. I also have a Browning Hi wall,...

    Doghawg, I had not been on this in a while. After I did my first one, and found out what needed to be done, it doesn't take very long using a Dremel tool with attachments, and a good stone to make the changes needed. I removed part of the sear...

    I am going tomorrow to buy a new .357 Henry, for $350 out the door. I have 3 other Henrys, that I have went thru the triggers on them, still use the original hammer spring. Seems like the best deal to me.
