Re: Rolling Block #4 Take Down

Dixie sells brass in 32R which uses 22 blanks for the primer. Bit of a hassle to load but works ok in a single shot rifle. When loading the rounds the 22 must line up with the hammer/firing pin. That's what I use in my Flobert. I've thought of drilling the breechblock to move the firing pin location...

Re: What is it?

I was a bit off base in my guess. Turns out that it's a Duke Pecan Cracker. Go figure!

What is it?

This might a bit off topic but I bought this item along with a lot of reloading equipment/supplies about 2 months ago. My best guess is some sort of roll crimp

tool for paper and/or brass hulls. Could be multi gauge as the adjustable screw can be reversed.

Re: Nickel

Short answer is no. I'm not aware of any reference to nickel plating in the literature. However, Remington would build to customers special order so it's possible but very unlikely. You may be able to tell if it's original by checking whether or not the metal has been refinished.

Re: Question on Remington 58

We do not usually provide value as so many variables come into play and it's usual to have the weapon in hand when evaluating. However the chief factors are: First - condition, condition, condition!!! Second - grade - ranging from plain field grade to the same model with extreme engraving, checkerin...

Re: Model 1874?

There were four variations between 1882 and 1889 - 1882, 1883, 1885 & 1887. These variations involve minor changes and are usually are identified by hammer design. In 1910 Remington stopped production of the 1889 as well as the hammerless DBL models (1894 & 1900). To identify the gun you need to exa...

Re: Model 1874?

According to Semmer's book "Remington Double Shotguns" there was no model 1874. In any event, all Remington DBL shotguns until 1882 are referred to as lifter models as a lever was raised to open the gun. In 1882 Remington introduced the common rotary lever to break the gun. The production of all DBL...

Shotshell loader

I know this is a bit off subject but ------ I just bought 18 loaders. Most were various MECs, Pacifics and Texans. There is one unknown. The molded rubber handle says Super Jet. I googled it and there was one produced by Lachmiller in the '60s but it operates in a linear fashion while this one uses ...

Re: Needing some assistance please

It would be helpful to indicate the model of gun involved. For example, S/N 314196 could be for a Model 1900 SxS shotgun made in 1901.

Re: Owner of a Model 1900 serial No. 328143

Your 1900 was built about mid 1902. The K stands for K grade while the D indicates it has Damascus barrels. The absence of an E (as in KED) means your 1900 has extractors rather than ejectors. The symbols /// and P are somewhat unknown. There should be numbers stamped on the barrel lugs which indica...

Re: I recently acquired an 1871 Rolling Block

There are so many variations of this gun. To help, we need photos & S/N plus any other additional info you can provide (caliber, type of casing etc.).

Re: 141 in 35 rem. loads

What weight variation do you observe? I use a RCBS measure with good results. However if I want extremely consistent results the powder for each round is weighed.

Re: Newly Aquired Model 11

What's wrong with it? If it's not a higher grade it's most likely not worth the effort unless there some family or other sentimental value. I'd just clean/lub it and enjoy.
