    Well the rolling block receiver came the other day and today the barrel arrived. The barrel is definitely a micro groove, after running some cleaning patches down the bore it looks real nice but boy those grooves are shallow ! The barrel is a big...

    I believe this one will be like the M 925 that has been on Gunbroker for at least the past 5 years with a opening bid of $ 900. That gun from Milan, OH has been there forever and the seller hasn’t dropped the opening bid, these guns aren’t worth...

    I assume you want the action and the barrel refinished the same so no the barrel and action can stay together. Jedman

    After doing some searching online I found that H&R did use some micro groove barrels on some of the handi rifles and that’s probably what this blank is. I know the earlier 44 mags and 444 Marlins had 1-38 twist then later they changed to 1- 20 twist...

    Thanks, I did do just that. I added a few other small items to get the free shipping and ordered it. I don’t know what gun H&R ever used with 12 groove rifling ? Sounds like a micro-groove barrel but if it isn’t good I will send it back like you...

    Yes , I would assume it’s a .429 - .432 groove barrel they list it as a 1-20 twist but nothing else. Jedman

    TbG, I just won a Swedish/ Remington rolling block action with a butt stock on Gunbroker . I don’t have it yet but it looks to be in nice condition but it has no barrel and maybe no extractor. The way I buy and sell guns , one day I have half a...

    It’s not a J C Higgins, but I have a Sears Ted Williams M 340 single shot lever action rifle. This rifle is basically the Ithaca M 49 rifle but mine does not have the fake magazine tube, just a round barrel. I don’t think anyone else made the rifle...

    Im looking for a blank for a project and these are about the lowest priced I can find. Numrich has them listed as new H&R 44 cal. blanks 1 3/6 x 23 1/2 # 585600 for $ 53.50. Im a little leary of the quality as it would seem they would be sold...

    Either of the 44 mag. or 44-40 can easily loaded to that velocity. The 44-40 actually has more internal volume than. 44 mag already. Jedman

    I wish the name Numerich , would go away. The company’s name is Numrich. For years on different forums I see it spelled Numerich or Numerick and it drives me �� how this happened nobody knows but it keeps going. Sorry for the rant . Jedman

    I have the Merwin Hulbert rifle and comparing it to what deHaas wrote about the M 922 or New Junior models it is different in some ways. The receiver mics between 1.004 - 1.009 thick, the barrel shank is .690 diameter and is 1.312 long. Compared to...

    I also had a bad experience with Wholesale Hunter, I bought a Hi Wall Uberti on gunbroker as a buy it now and paid for it and waited. About a week later they contacted me and said they were out of stock. What a bunch of BS ! They advertise a gun ,...

    Another vote for the round ball, I have killed deer, hogs and other game with them even with a 410 tri ball load. I have seen a deer that was hit hard by OO buckshot get away and never to be recovered and that just stays in my mind as a really...

    I have one and haven’t used it for a few years but at one time I used to take it with me to the range when working up strait walled calibers. When there was no wind and no one else to distract me I could load 3-4 shells shoot them and then try...

    I picked one of these Uberti baby rolling blocks up last summer at a gun store new in the box last year for a great price and like a dummy sold it before even firing it because I was offered $ 200 more than I paid for it. I don’t know how they do...
