    x2 on the neck tension. I have shot many pounds of 3031 thru a 45/70, and the fouling left is minimal, don't look great but has never hurt my accuracy. And I am talking shooting rifles with scopes on them, to work up the best loads. I have a Marlin...

    I have the American Ranch rifle bolt action. I have had no issues with the rifle feeding anything I have put thru it. You might try a new mag?

    The best thing about the deal, is I traded something I didn't really need, for the rifle. It was a 30/30 over a 20ga Savage 24, walnut stock in about 90% shape. I loved the gun, but just did not use it.

    As the title says, I have traded for a pretty sweet Stevens 44, in .22 lr with a 26" heavy barrel. I don't have it in hand yet, but it is a looker. The wood has been refinished but modestly, the barrel has original bluing and the action has case,...

    I have one with a 28" tapered octagon barrel, and has the shotgun type stock with a recoil pad. Hands down the most accurate 45/70 single shot with open sights, that I have ever shot.

    In 35+ years of gunsmithing, I have had a lot of them with the cleaning issues. I have also had 12 of them with broken firing pins/bolts, one or both. Usually if the firing pin broke, and they snapped it a few times, the bolt tip would break, don't...
