It's true, it's true.... and they're all so noisy.

Interesting. What am those?
Give it a rest.
You know how trite British Schoolmarms can be.
I've been looking for a good holster for awhile now.
I have been using a elcheapo Uncle Mike's inside the pants holster most of the time or pocket carrying.
AKA paintball markers.
An Excalibur and a Viking.
Sadly, no longer in the inventory...
are you thinking of having a nibble?
Anybody know anything about these? I love it, but know very little about it other than the history of how it came into our possession (not my photo but gun is the same). Model 1873 Springfield.
It's the only gun I own; family heirloom that hasn't been fired for at least 80 years. Can it be tested or inspected for safety, and is ammunition available or could be handmade?
I'm not currently a gun guy, but I can feel it coming on...
The previous collector had a nice box made up for it,...

All you guys who say that must have quite the fascination with dicks...in the dark way I suspect.
Nice Trapdoor. Ammo is widely available for it. GOEX makes factory blackpowder ammo. Federal and Ultramax make "Cowboy" ammo in .45-70. It's specifically loaded for the pressures the Trapdoor can tolerate (one of the weakest rifle actions). Before firing make sure the firing pin moves freely in the breechblock, the breechblock is not excessively loose in the hinge, and the bore is clean and free of obstructions. They're a lot of fun to shoot.
Lou Alessi does awesome work, but he has slowed down due to health issues.

Some of their work.
A very cool website with some of the best in the biz...
Check out some of their "projects".
very nice, mine was a mis-match russian capture, shouldn't have sold it....
Hmmm, where did they specify make, model and caliber in that amendment??
The old trapdoor rifle, very cool.
I would indeed have it checked by a gunsmith before firing it, but if a smith gives it a clean bill of health, you can shoot Remington 45-70 through it, here's an article that talks about that:
One of the greatest shooters I've ever had. Not mine but same deal.
Oh yeah, it's 50 years old and I got it for free too. Eat your heart out rugerheads.
