    Armi Sport Sharps - Any Good?

    YEEEHAWWWW - EAT CROW, DUDE! (That's ME talking to myself, understand!)

    My much coveted ARMI SPORT QUIGLEY 50 - 2.50 arrived today, ARE YOU LISTENING HIWALLBO? YOU WERE DEAD WRONG BUDDY! You said they were only good for shooting up in the air and hitting 55 gallon drums at 50 yards.

    WELL YOU WERE WRONG!

    BECAUSE MY NEW ONE WON'T SHOOT AT ALL!!!!!! UP IN THE AIR OR OTHERWISE. IT WON'T SHOOT!!!!

    You can cock the hammer on it, but you can't pull the trigger.

    You can't pull either trigger.

    They don't work.

    THE RIFLE CANNOT BE FIRED!

    I'm sending it back for a refund - not for repair - and I'm going to listen to the rest of you guys, and move on up in the price range.

    Forgive my stupidity.

    I probably couldn't bear to send that rifle back without examining the trigger group...to find out the 'why' of it. The mechanism is not very complicated, and the problem might be easily rectified.

    But, I can't blame you for deciding to leave it alone...for refund purposes.

    Charlie, I would not want to keep any brand new firearm which was inoperable the first day I bought it. If it won't fire the first day, think what'll happen in five years.

    Yes, I know set triggers; I honed two sets of them 61 years ago when I was a kid.

    I simply do not want to start out with a useless rifle.

    But I certainly understand your thoughts, and I thank you for your input.

    Jeff, dear boy, I bought my first two Kentucky squirrel rifles in 1945, and just for fun, I honed both of the sets of triggers on the two rifles. I know all about set triggers.

    But I do not want a new rifle which will not fire the day you bring it home from the store. And I do not want to buy any rifle from any company who sells new rifles which which will not fire the day they sell them

    OF COURSE I could repair it, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO REPAIR A BRAND NEW RIFLE - I WANT IT TO AT LEAST SHOOT THE DAY I BUY IT.

    The guys who said the ARMI SPORT is junk were obviously largely correct.

    At least this one is.

    SO I DON'T WANT IT.

    Thanks anyway,

    Gene

    willdixon,
    I am with you on the rifle! If it isn't firable out of the box, then the manufacturer has some SERIOUS quality control problems. Fixable, likely. Should you, NO hell no! I love my Pedersoli but if I were more affluent there'd be a Shiloh here, just cause.

    Not true, Jeff. At least it's not supposed to be true. If you have a DST rifle that will not fire from the front trigger alone, there is something out of adjustment on it.

    No, sorry....

    It's more than mere "adjustment" Charlie.

    And yes, on most double set triggers, in an emergency you can fire the weapon by pulling on only the front trigger. But it is a much heavier pull, when it has not been set by the rear set trigger.

    ...and some set trigger systems (mostly for target arms) will not fire from the un-set position at all.

    Well, I hope you can recoup your shipping costs and FFL fees if charged. Some places won't pay for return shipping. Good Luck.

    Thank you for your kind words WBH...

    After this rifle has been received by the selling dealer, and after we've gotten the charge off our credit card, I'll let you know how it all went.

    Contact Sixgun Jeff. He get's some good deals on things and usually knows where you can get stuff at the best price.

    Don't dispair. Hell, you could be playing golf and wearing those bright colored britches those people usually wear.

    Best to you pard.

    BLACK PRINCE, YOU'VE FINALLY GONE TOO FAR!

    I'd take up KNITTING before I'd play golf or wear those silly pantaloons!

    But things are lookin' up.

    My dealer has just found a new Pedersoli in 50/90, and I reckon he'll order it in the morning.

    Speaking of which, some of my friends tease me about goin' so big as a 50/90. But just take a look at this MEACHAM FEFTEEN POUND 50/120 - REPEAT 50/120 - located about 2/3rds the way down this page: http://www.meachamrifles.com/

    I'd post a picture of this gorgeous rifle, but I don't know how - duhhhhhh.

    I'd give one or two parts of my BODY for that baby!

    Gene.............that's a 50-140............but who's counting.

    My 50-90 weighs almost 16 pounds. Just a gentle shove

    WOW! If any of you Pedersoli owners or lovers have not seen the nifty pictoral factory tour of Pedersoli, you need to go take a look at it.

    VERY INTERESTING! http://www.bpcr.net/site_photos/2004...ges/47_jpg.htm

    Is that a Japanese Browning/Winchester? Custom stocked? The stock cut looks factory but the wood sure dont.
