    . A Stevens 425 - once upon a time, I had one in .35 Remington, but it's long gone (+/- 40 years, now).

    . My Mossy hangs muzzle down from some paracord on a door hook, ready to go. On my property, long range is 50yds outside, 10' indoors - which is where/when I feel threatened. (YMMV) Some jerk, just cutting through my back yard, isn't IMO an...

    pietro replied to a thread Concern over 38-55 in Leverguns
    . IIRC. .38-55 brass formed from .30-30 brass ends up with a neck that's a tad shorter than an original .38-55 case. Once-fired .375 Winchester brass should do the trick in your .38-55 - they were both interchangeable in my .375 M94BB.

    . I would have the gun Cerakoted (google) - perfect for a gun that's rode hard & out up wet. .

    pietro replied to a thread 40 cal's in Muzzleloading.
    I can't use a .40 for hunting ANY game in my state ! My state game laws mandate muzzleloading caliber as: "larger than .40cal for deer" & "under .40cal for small game"....... When I contacted me state's F&G dept and asked which category a...

    The stocks are not pine (too soft for gunstocks) Rossi uses a tropical/Brazilian hardwood for their stock, which can be made to look a lot better if the finish is stripped off, then dyed (not stained) & topped off with your choice of stock finish.

    . Here's a video/tutorial on the R&R of the internals - the reinstall starts with the stripped frame about 9mins into the 17min video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzfOA4gfnfA The video is from a replacement spring company, but the...

    . It's an example of an infringement on Browning's patents. Barry Mendelson was an attorney in NY who represented Browning when Yamamoto tried to back door the Auto Pointer into the US. Yamamoto intended to use Golden Eagle, Sloans and,...

    . FWIW, I always shoot rifles with two-piece stocks differently that those with one-piece stocks. Rule #1: Never let any portion of the rifle's wood or metal parts touch anything except my body. 2) Hold the forearm firmly with the...

    . The "headspace" issues may stem from worn/bent breechblock & hammer pivot pins - replaceable. The existing barrel can be re-bored/re-chambered to .45-70 for $300 ( www.35caliber.com ), provided the barrel diameter at the muzzle is 3/4"/.750"...

    Since you have the stronger (than the SB-1) SB-2, it's good for higher-pressure cartridges. The .357Mag, .44Mag & .45-70 are low enough in pressure (compared to other cartridges) that they can & were chambered in the SB-1 Some bbls drop in;...

    . FWIW, only muskets have a handguard, the carbines had forearm's. IME, although these guns were made on a production line, any replacement wood may or may not need some fitment for a clean installation.

    . I had one of the FEG clones marked Charle Daly, and IMO is was equal to the Browning P-35 in every respect ( parts interchangeability, fit, finish, accuracy, etc) except that the safety has the original small nub. I had it several years and...

    . It looks like it was made to appeal to younger shooters who grew up playing video games with fantasy weapons. Next up is a camo jet pack, to pursue running deer - and allowing the jumping of tall buildings in a single bound. ;)
