    This may give you some additional data. I have owned several Springfield conversions, made by Bannermans, but not an Allin RF trap door.

    Thank you Rapier
    We have had the other models up to the 84 for years. Finally decided not to let a little thing like Rim-fire slow us down on the 1st Model. Have an early Peabody in 56-56 so got some experience making rim-fire brass. Mostly time consuming.
