    I'm a big fan of the .40 caliber rifles, and not any I own in old .40 caliber chamberings I don't like! I was without a .40-65 for years, but recently rebarreled an engraved Ballard I own in .40-65 with a Douglas half octagon 30" barrel. I'm also...

    I have a friend who rebarreled an old Trapdoor action to .38-55 and reworked the ejector to fit the smaller case rim. It's got a 1/2 octagon barrel on it now, and done in a deluxe officer's model style. It's a great shooter, and a gorgeous build!

    I used nothing but cast plain base bullets in my Ruger #1 Lyman centennial in .45-70. A much longer barrel, but I'm sure they're likely the same rifling. I used both 360 gr. and 405 gr. bullets, as I'm not a fan of those big heavy slugs some guys...

    Finally watched the review videos just because I wanted to see where the "Creedmoor" part was. As usual somebody is being liberal with the use of the "Creedmoor" name, as it's obvious this gun has nothing in common with a Creedmoor rifle. But I...

    I'd personally go with the pistol gripped version myself. But I just like that look and feel better.

    By the way. Here's a Pedersoli with shotgun butt, and set triggers for under $1300. Still need to get sights, but the BIN price isn't bad at all. And another about $20 higher. Better than paying more with Pedersoli sights, and then replacing them...

    marlinman93 replied to a thread lyman 1878? in Single Shot Guns
    I personally would steer clear of the CSA 1875 model. They aren't a bad gun at all, but they seem to have very little following or interest. The 1874 Model Sharps is a much better choice and will hold it's value much better. Not that you're going to...

    I can't add much to the good advice given, but I will say that I don't mind paying a little extra for a nicer looking rifle. That may be better grade of stocks, or better fit and finish. Regardless, I just feel better looking at a nice quality gun...

    As a kid I witnessed a grain elevator explosion. For the non-rural types grain elevators are large storage silo's. Grains of wheat are barely flammable. Wheat dust on the other hand is highly flammable/explosive. While I am not interested enough...

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    I'd say they certainly are "real schuetzen rifles" even if the twist is a bit slower than most use who shoot 200 yd. schuetzen matches using a .32-20 caliber. It's got all the features of any schuetzen rifle, and I think if the accuracy is there...

    It is not just NRA BPCR matches that have this rule. There are a number of long range dinger shoots that also do not allow hammerless guns. I realize these may not be NRA sanctioned, or affiliated to a national organization, but there are others....

    This whole hammer vs. hammerless rule is stupid, and has always caused hard feelings amongst Sharps Borchardt owners who wanted to compete with their old guns. Considering almost every competition uses chamber flags and doesn't rely on hammers to...

    That is a really nice looking rifle, and in a great caliber too! If the twist rate is fast enough it could be a really great shooter! Love the schuetzen styling on it!
