""Ive been thinking about a repro Remington 1875 recently:""




Who makes repro's that fire modern cartridges? More than 1 company? I love those old style revolvers, but I didn't want to mess with caps and powder.

His birthday isn't for a couple of weeks but he'll want to shoot it as soon as I give it to him. It sounds like these things are built like a brick shit house but I figured I'd better check the head space before letting him fire it. I'm too cheap to pay for a set of gages so tonight I chucked up a piece of mystery metal out of the scrap bucket and turned a field gage and milled clearance for the extractor. The bolt only closed about half way on it. I figure I'll keep shaving 0.001" at a time off it and see where the bolt closes, but at least I know the gun is safe to shoot.

Look up Cimarron Arms and/or Uberti firearms. You can get both modern cartridge and black powder cartridge/cylinder setups.

Edit:

Here's a link.

Picked up a project Remington 700 Varmint Special in .22-250. Near as I can tell it was made in 1974.



Had a Hogue stock lying around, removed the Leupold Base & rings.



Badger Ordnance 20 moa base & Weaver Grand Slam Tactical 3x-10x mil/mil scope showed up today.





Hope it shoots.

Uberti Schofield break-top in 45 Colt. I posted pics of this gun before, but it was a while back and, in the meanwhile, have had a lot of fun with it, shoot fairly mild mid-range handloads with lead SWC bullets. Light recoil and very accurate. My girlfriend's teenage son likes to shoot this better than any other handgun. Uberti makes them in 38 Special and 44/40 as well as the 45. I'd love to have a 38, but don't need two and they aren't inexpensive.

I also like the Ruger New Vaqueros a lot. I have one in 357 and would like to pick one up in 45 Colt to go with the Uberti Schofield. Fun stuff.

I've got the same safety on the series 80, yep, think so...

Thanks, it's a Hogue in Ghille OD Green I took off of another project long ago because I read that the Hogue stocks suck. I like it too. We'll see how it shoots.

Many of you know I really enjoy the old military rifles....I have more than a few.

The 91/30's are a great way to get into collecting.....and they made so many different flavors that some only collect these rifles, Finn, Spanish, American....goes on and on.

Here is a pic of the last one I got....came in a box to my door....is this a great country or what.










This one here is my pride and joy of my Russian collection....at least till I find that Westinghouse 91
