    1879 Lee Link (Posting in "Other U.S. Service Rifles" Forum)

    It's not done yet, but I thought there might be enough to share.

    Due to other commitments, there won't be much progress for a week or so, but feel free to have a looky-loo and see what you think. Constructive comments would be appreciated- either here or on the actual thread.

    Warning!: If your computer or internet link is slow, this is NOT something which will load quickly due to the large amount of Photos.

    Oh, and please excuse the photo quality...

    Added some bare receiver and bedding photos- not the finished product, just seeing how they look- some need replacing.

    You might recognize the mag catch and trigger spring set-up...

    Very interesting - almost as good as having one and most of us never will!

    Thank you for taking the trouble to post all those photos.

    The parentage is so very clear. What would be interesting to know more about is what designs if any, inspired James Paris Lee.
