    Very nice, guys. I wonder if 9mm Mak (.366") would work in the Cogswell?

    Single shots are my favorite type of actions because there are so many different ways to breech a gun for one single shot. This is my Belgium made miniature Comblain action 410 shotgun.
    It is probably the most uncommon of the dozens of different single shot actions I own.
    It is a true falling block design but is very unique as it has only one spring in the whole action the mainspring and it not only powers the hammer but also tensions the trigger, holds the action closed and returns the extractor closed after opening the action. One of the most clever single shot actions I have seen.

    Plain extractor won't do rimless. 9x18 MAK also higher pressure than I would want to put in a soft iron, BP action.

    .38 wadcutters run about 14,000 psi and are perfect for it.

    I suppose .366 diameter case bullets for the 9x18 would work, but factory .38 wadcutter shoots to the original sights and I'm not sure that a lighter bulet would. The HBWC is accurate too!

    And even 158-grain LRN service loads aren't bad.
