Re: No Country for Old Men

I am at heart an optimist and wish i could add a positive bend on this conversation. Unfortunatly that is not possible in the current enviornment. I live in a crowded urban area and you can smell the desperation and distrust in the air. Aggresive driving and general disrepect predominate. People are...

Re: Help with allin conversion 50-70

I did notice quite the difference in sights between the 50-70 i am returning and my 1884 ramrod bayonet 45-70. Nice shooting by the way parashooter!

Re: Help with allin conversion 50-70

Thanks Butlers Rangers for the clear pics. I know what to look for now. Thats a fine looking 50-70. I have a couple 45-70's that i really like. I hope to find a nice 50-70 someday to add to the set. Thanks again, KC

Re: Help with allin conversion 50-70

I checked and am pretty sure it is a 50-70 and not a .58 cal. I think the chamber is worn. There is some play with the case in the chamber. I am going to return the rifle to the seller. We talked and he agreed there is something wrong with it. Thank you for your help on this.

Re: Help with allin conversion 50-70

Thanks B.R.: A worn extractor sounds right. I measured the rim diameter of a case and it came up in spec. I would appreciate a pic of your extractor if you get a chance to post it. I wonder if i could drill and add a pin filed to shape instead of heating up the breach block?
Thanks again, KC

Help with allin conversion 50-70

Hello to the forum: i have aquired 50-70 trapdoor springfield. My question has to do with it not ejecting a spent cartridge. The brass is marked 50-70 dixie. These look unused and came with the rifle. I put an empty case in the chamber and it will not eject. It looks like the rim is too small? Maybe...

Re: Disappearing Icons

By me realtors no longer use the term " master bedroom" because of slave owner association. It is now called the primary bedroom. I suppose it's only a matter of time before we no longer have a master link, master cylinder, master lock etc. What a waste of time.<img style="max-width: 100%;...

Re: Shipping question

I have ordered brass from mid south shooters supply and had it delivered with no problems. There are no restrictions on the mailing of brass to Illinois. Hope that helps.
