    Break action single shots just feel and look right! I have two - both shotguns. I would dearly love a Handi or H&R rifle. In the meantime, I shoot my Lee Enfields and 22's in single shot mode. Except when I go out into the field. Gotta carry my...

    And while I was at it I tried a rear sight further back to see how it works for me. And while I was at it, I tried a peep sight. The open U sight is better for me. It focuses the front sight and it's shroud perfectly while I focus...

    Here are some photos that hopefully show what I did. I didn't disassemble the 512 because it's a bit awkward to get to the rear screw, you with taking off the trigger guard. If the photos aren't clear enough I'll disassemble it for you. ...

    I did my 512. I'll take a photo of it for you.

    oldhenry, it's not hijacking, it's adding content. :drinks: I do have a target peep I will be fitting some time. At the moment I'm concentrating on getting the rifle to shoot well using a scope. At some point I'll be fitting a second action...

    Here is a classic example of boolit canting. All those missing drive bands on one side of the boolit was smeared in the bore! The cause as far as I can make out is the boolit nose sitting up against the rifling leade and this in a...

    You might try a fibrous filler. Wheat bran comes to mind. I sieve mine to make it easier to get into the case. It might form a sealing wad behind the boolit. One can only try. It needs to be slightly compressed under the boolit. Never use it...

    The only downside to 303 is limited bullet choice. There is enough to choose from though and it's actually a nice cartridge. Just for fun I'm going to be trying 308 bullets in a 303, the idea being to widen the choices. Mostly though, my interest...

    These Slazenger were made by Lithgow in Australia for Slazenger. The barrel is 'ordinance steel' and it is tough! It took quite some doing to cut that barrel down with a hacksaw. The barrel and action is actually one piece. A very simple...

    Hey OS. That's some mighty fine shooting! Ok now see if you can do it off hand. :mrgreen: Once upon a time, I could actually shoot quite well off hand. I remember shooting with a friends Remington 512. I could shoot as well with it as I could...

    Here's how my love affair with these Slazengers began. My then 9 or 10 year old great nephew was just getting into guns and hunting and Christmas was coming up so I found a single shot rifle for him and did it up as best I could. This is it. ...

    Hi OS. Yeah, I've been out of it for a while. Not too well. I suspect I had an adverse reaction to the vax but it could have been something else entirely. Anyway, when I felt well enough OI went and had my second dose and there were no side...

    I've found that I can no longer see the Remington sights too well. I do better with the rear sight closer to my eyes. I plan on moving the sights rearward. Epoxy is my friend.

    Interesting thread topic! Well, I might just have one or two old rifles lying around. Three Toz 17's, four Slazenger single shots, a Voere, 1930's Mauser and so on. To see what one Slazenger can do, I epoxied a scope rail on. It...

    Hi Good Cheer. Looking at that stuck boolit, I would say there's nothing wrong with rifle's bore. You might be limited in the velocity you can achieve though. With the bore being tapered toward the muzzle, you're good to go. As long as the patch...
