    I agree with Mk 42 that the gun has been rechambered. If it was a 25 wcf the rim diameter of a 25-20 SS is larger than the base diameter of a 25 wcf and wouldn’t be able to slip past the extractor and enter the chamber as far as you mention. I...

    For me it’s mostly for plinking. When I get a new rifle I usually scope it if possible and shoot it for groups to see how accurate it seems to be. I do shoot quite a few yard pests with them but also use what’s quick to grab most often. When I can...

    Thanks Drydock, Your explanation is very sensible. The picture of this action that I posted I can see is wrong. Looking at the picture it shows clearance on the front side of the cam with the breech closed and locked which has to be wrong also. ...

    I just thought taking out the ejector was easy enough and that way it’s not trying to extract the adapter when opening the trapdoor. I could make it with a rimless adapter but the headspace would be harder to get right. I have dies ,brass and...

    This is a antique H. Piper marksman rimfire rifle that I added the receiver sight to with a small plate with two tapped mounting holes with J B Weld epoxy. So far no problems, if I choose to remove it there wount be any holes in the receiver. ...

    sukivel, I didn’t make it from a handi barrel I made it from a H&R topper 20 ga. barrel that has the slimmer profile than the Pardner does. The rifle barrel was a Rem. 25-06 barrel that I had to cut down to about 20” because the chamber was to...

    I like your idea ! I wanted a smaller 25 cal. rifle for a while and a few years ago bought a small framed Zeller Schuetzen rifle that someone made up in 22 K hornet with a take off barrel that looked bad and was the wrong profile and the action had...

    This will be a future project because I just recently moved and don’t have my lathe and other machines working because they need 230 V power and I will have to get that done first. My idea is to make a chamber adapter to shoot either 32 S&W long or...

    Looking at this sectioned drawing of the action it looks to me that the point that the locking cam is in contact with the breech plug is above center of the stem that it turns on and any rearward thrust would cause it to compress the cam spring. But...

    I recently bought a M 1884 trapdoor carbine and I also own H&R officers model and a Calvary carbine modern replicas. Checking over the original I studied the locking and how the breech thrust is supported by the trapdoor and the receiver. Reading...

    I have also killed many of them. I have watched them take droppings from their nest and drop them in the clean water I put in our bird bath daily. They kill and harass a lot of other birds babies and yesterday I watched a pair of them chase a hen...

    My vote goes for the Marlin 39 A also. I bought my first one new in 1973 or 1974 and have shot the heck out of it and it’s very accurate. Just last month I went to a gun show and found a like new 39 A that just had a great look to it, nice dark wood...
