    The bolt handle is threaded into the sleeve and staked in place. They often come loose especially on the later ones with the swept back bolt handle. I had a spot of TIG weld put on one that was loose...

    I've got a milling attachment for my SB 9" lathe. I use it mostly for cutting extractor cuts in the breech end of gun barrels. They are not very sturdy and you must take a lot of light cuts, keep...

    I think you have a set of rings for a 77 model where one is taller than the other. You need a set of rings for the #1. They are the same height. The bases should compensate for the barrel diameter...

    I've got the opposite situation with my last lot of Swiss. My 60 grain load now weighs 62 grains. Swiss varies quite a bit from lot to lot. That's why you should buy it in large quantities of the...

    It is basically only longer in the front. The barrel shank is longer, same thread, same extractor cuts, etc. Not much different at all. Finding some one fairly local would be best as shipping barrels...

    Most any gunsmith who has unscrewed a barrel and screwed on a new one should be able to do it. The trapdoors were interchangeable parts and the new barrel should screw right on and index. It has...

    Get the long brass. The short brass is a Winchester modern thing. The 38/55 is a Marlin cartridge from the Ballard era. The bore on your rifle is to the old specs and is probably .379 or .380 groove...

    Your rifle will shoot just fine with 60 to 65 grains of black powder. No need to try to get 70 grains into the case. Try different loads and let the rifle tell you what is best.

    Most original Maynard carbines shoot well with bullets from .512" diameter up to about .518" diameter. Slugging your barrel is best but remember it is a 3 groove barrel. Determine the bore size with...

    If the chamber is ringed no amount of polishing will help. Either option will work but sleeving the chamber is less work because reworking the extractor cut would be easier. Quite a few gunsmiths can...

    I think the 1879 sight would be a better hunting sight with a taller front blade. The Buffington would need to stand up for hunting unless a very tall front blade was used making it subject to...

    The bore of your trapdoor is most likely .450". The groove diameter is most likely between .460" and .462". The nose of the 500 grain bullet is too large for the bore. Use fairly soft lead so the...

    I drilled the peep hole in the Buffington sight larger and made an .093" wide front sight. It helped a lot but at 75 yrs old now not much helps anymore.

    If that 575 grain bullet was 535 or 540 grains it would be more of a toss up. It is probably too long for the twist.
