    Years ago I had one and changed the cylinder to a Model 10 cylinder for shooting. It shot fine without issues. Never had a bullet stick in the barrel nor did it throw flyers on me. I used ammo...

    Not so...we had basic drown proofing as part of our training when I went through and a man had to be able to manage two lengths of the pool after that. But actual swimming, no. Also you speak of...

    That's something I'll need to look into, making .44 mag bullets from lead filled .40 cal cases. Sounds promising.

    I find these fascinating, can't say about the front sight though. I've been to the battlefield about three or four times and would go again...hope it is what it appears to be. Very neat carbine.

    I use Circa 1850 stripper I think it is...there are others. Spread on, steel wool to lift varnish and then wash off. Let dry and oil...the early guns seemed to be walnut even though sometimes you'd...

    Get the best you can out of it, $500/$550...perhaps a WTS posted here in forum and one of these will take it for hunting. Then you may be able to find a shooter 1903, even just assembled to...

    They may have a beech stock and those are hard to get the finish to sink in. Some of us have discussed this and used a thinner to help the darker stain into the wood. I use a Watco danish oil and...

    That makes perfect sense. After serving as long as I did, I'd never believe my forefathers issued an enemy rifle to use in an army that had lots of it's own to use. Just a story to sell a rifle.

    You can likely sell that one and push the funds towards a shooter 1903...bet you could do OK too.

    I have a really hard time with that story...really. The disc looks like it's hiding damage that they admit to. I'm sure someone will come along shortly to fill in the story. I wouldn't pay for...

    I agree, it's a fine example of a hunting rifle and should likely stay as such. Too much money will be spent and it won't be right, just close...

    Yep...that's what I'm thinking too. You will likely feel them touching the commencement anyway, they'll stop hard before they should. Too, bullets that touch the commencement have a higher pressure...

    I was working from memory...turning at a low speed... The slowest speed I know of is about 40RPM which is for threading and far too fast for this.
