Re: Two questions from a total newbie

Okay, thanks for the tips guys. The rifle is a Pedersoli, and I was able to find the manual online. Brent's comment and the manual together helped me figure out which screws on the trigger plate to adjust. I've still got some fine tuning to do, but it shoots safely. A couple obligatory pics. "There ...

Two questions from a total newbie

I have just been given a gift of a 1874 Sharps that belonged to one of my father's closest friends, who passed away a few years ago. The gentleman had a very large collection of various guns, though he was in poor health and didn't shoot some of them. If this rifle was shot, it was not much. It's on...

uberti 1874 Sharp's Hunter

Does anyone know much about the Uberti Sharp's Hunter model? There's one on gun broker that's going well below most (about $700 right now). Usually this screams "stay away!" but I've always heard good things about Uberti. Normally it seems to list for around $1100-1200. It's a 28" round barrel, but ...

I stand corrected. It does kinda open up the possibilities for acceptable rifles to use, such as the Browning 1885 w/o the extended tang.

I asked that same question a while back. The answer I got was basically that it is physically possible, but not a great idea if you are planning to shoot much competitively. Wood tends to swell, shrink, and move depending on weather. Areas where the wood is thinner, such as the wrist, are more prone...

From everything I've heard, it does really well. Most animal oils do. The thing about it is that I believe that whale based products are currently illegal to import or manufacture in the U.S., so getting it is nearly impossible, thus making it extremely valuable.

How'd the old timers do it?

I've been wondering how the original buffalo hunters loaded their cartridges. I'm assuming they didn't have and Dillon reloading presses. So what did they do? What tools did they use. Any kind of press, dies, sizers, etc.? Is there much chance of achieving the accuracy needed to shoot competitively ...

advice please - the whole gammot from gun up

Howdy! I've been wanting to get into BPCR sillouettes for a while, and have decided to sell/trade my deer rifle (Ruger #1) to do so. So I've got lots of questions and no real knowledge. I'll just start asking, and any answers at all will be much appreciated! 1. I've got a line on a slightly used Bro...
