Re: Building a rolling Block

I recently went through the same thing. This is a before and the result, but in .50-70. The action is a Carl Gustav. Now I just need to find a good hunting bullet.

Re: Little input/help: Swiss and 40-65

I load 53 grains of 1-1/2 F Swiss under a 400-grain Snover in three rifles; one each for my wife, daughter, and for my dad before he passed. They have never had issues hitting the 805-yard buffalo target at Quigley with the load.

Extractor needed, Model 1868 Swedish Rolling Block

Anyone know of a source, or have a spare bar-type rolling block extractor for a No. 1 action, preferably from a Model 1868 Swedish Rolling Block? At worst, does someone have one they can measure so that I can machine a new one?

Re: For Sale - Garrett 1863 conversion .45-70 Carbine

Keep on sniping, guys! I don't mind tire-kickers. People will come here for the entertainment value and I figure the longer you help me keep this at the top, the more likely it is that someone will decide to take me up on my word and buy one heck of a nice rifle for a fair price. :P

Steve, your putting words in my mouth that weren't there before. :D I didn't say the quality was better, I said equal. If the Garrett said "Made in U.S.A." it would be long gone.

Hi, Bill. Everyone is intitled to an opinion. :? However, opinions are worth a lot more whan substantiated with facts. Do you, or have you ever actually owned a Garrett sharps (one accepted by Garrett as opposed to the culls he rejected or the post-Garrett guns that were still named as Garretts)? If...

Shiloh Order - ready for production now

I have a Shiloh order that is ready for production now. Bob Bryant at Shiloh told me that the order is easily transfered to a new owner, and the new owner can specify the rifle they want. I placed the $250 deposit two years ago and would like $350 for it. You pay a $100 premium to cut 18 to 24 month...
