Some guys wanted more info about the action I built. This one is the most recent and best IMHO.
Caliber is 45-70, and I consider it a safe action with trapdoor and low end marlin level loads. I have tested it MUCH hotter, but for the sake of prudence, I limit loads to 28,000 PSI or so.
This rifle has taken 4 deer and a mountain goat in the last 2 seasons, as well as a bunch of grouse using a Hammond game getter small game adapter. It has also batted cleanup on a couple of poorly hit moose that hunting clients shot.(I am a part time hunting guide)
I wanted to show the new extractor and retainer, as well as some of the features.
The Lever, link, and breech block assembly can be dropped from the bottom of the receiver for cleaning by loosening the setscrew(red arrow) and removing the lever pin.
The setscrew holds the lever pin in place by seating in the groove. (Red arrow)
The Blue arrow is pointing to the extractor actuating stud.
