    Thanks, Rapier. That is exactly the system I'm using. I just happened to get the front ring dimensions close to just right for my eyes. My sight is similar to that Williams and I think my rifle may have been fitted with on in the past as it has...

    Thanks Bigslug. Ok so I have a rear peep sight - some Russian make I think - and currently just a small tube for the front sight. I find that I can aim quite well with that set up at a range of targets, so I want to make a front sight with a...

    Thanks, Rapier, that would indeed help me. The gun does have a front dovetail. Actually, that trial front sight I made is sitting in the dovetail. I used loctite to secure it which is why it's not obvious. I turned a 30 degree on the screw head...

    Here is the temporary front sight I made. The plan - which could change. I could make it a chunky rectangular arrangement which they say makes for good vertical hold, and turn the tunnel into it but I'm thinking of using this rifle in...

    I went to the range today and shot at 100m (110yds) and am quite happy with the results. Interesting horizontal spread. A fellow shooter pointed out that there was a down range crosswind. What's important to me is that I got the temporary...

    That's awesome! :2_high5: You will of course be framing that set? :cool: I'll be going to my range this coming Sunday. I don't expect that kind of result but I will try. :Fire: I find it hard to concentrate these days but I am improving...

    That would take a Zebra! (Seen a video of a zebra taken with a 45-70).

    Here is the recovered waxed patched boolit. That strange ridge where the expansion ends is a mystery. Something not right anyway. This is a 194gr patched boolit soaked in STP with the same powder charge. This would take most small to...

    I have settle on one very old and well used 303 Brit carbine. It's light and dandy and I just like it. It's a 1898 action with a Martini carbine barrel and a sporter butt stock. Yes, I do have a newer rifle - it's a 1902 Lee Enfield. ...

    I have hunted a few turkey with paper patched cast. Kill them dead! 208gr semi-round nose hollow point. Got to make sure you have enough boolit! :mrgreen: I've also used 220gr wide hollow nose on turkey. That puts them down on the spot! So...

    I once tried patching for my hornet. I have lost the results (and forgotten how it worked out). In the end, I was using this rifle for hunting small game and wanted max performance but didn't want to size the cases. So, I used a paper hand towel...

    I have one or two rust damaged bores and one very cordite eroded and worn bore. Paper patching makes it possible to extract usable accuracy out of such bores. I will say though that at this point, I am disinclined to shoot target with paper...

    Is that a springer or gas? A springer has a lot of shock. I have fitted suppressors by Loctite-ing a thread collar on. I've also glued a scope base on a springer. That Slazenger up above has a glued on scope base but it only has to be strong...

    For the most part, yes. There is one that threads on the rear and front of the barrel that I saw on YouTube yesterday. That rifle I showed above threads on the rear with the barrel two-thirds into the can. Others thread at the muzzle and have an...

    The 500 series Remingtons have a beautiful balance and yes, the 510 is ideal for teaching kids. It's ideal for adults too.

    Seeing this, I'm tempted to rework the stock of a Slazenger. Actually, I have one with a broken stock ..... There's that something about that old rifle.

    When my grand nephew was 9, I got hold of a Lithgow Slazenger single shot and shortened and skimmed the barrel and fitted an over-barrel suppressor. When he was tired he would walk with the muzzle end running on the grass. Very accurate little...

    I got to take the 510 to the range today. What can I say? Then came time to test the newly fitted target sight. Well, I don't have a front sight yet so I made up something to test with. Turns out the lighting wasn't good enough for me to see...

    Sounds familiar. Sadly, it's our eyes. I have found that if I wear my reading glasses then I can focus both target and cross hairs. Now I know it's my eyes because a few short years ago, (more than just a few years ago actually) I could focus my...
