Model 51 safety

Just acquired a 51 in 380. I'm impressed by the safety feature that prevents the gun firing if the magazine is not installed. I assume this prevents accidental firing of "empty" guns when a forgotten shell was still in the chamber after the magazine had been removed. The question I have is...

Re: 1903 rolling block

The battle for San Juan Hill took place in 1898. The standard issue rifle for US forces in the Spanish - American War was the Krag in 30cal. This not to say that some irregular forces might have used a RB.

Re: Numbers matching 36 cal. 1858 but when was it made?

You may be able to drill (correct size) out the nipple and use an extractor to remove and replace the nipple. I've done that on several shotguns and Springfields with good success. Works with broken off bolts on lock plates as well.

Re: 1863 Remington New Army .44 with grip notches

The first question is whether or not they have military inspection/acceptance marks. Photos and S/Ns would be helpful.

I have and use 38RF cases from Dixie in my Flobert. I didn't know 32RF cases were available. Where did you get them?

Re: Help with caliber confirmation #4 rolling block

One more crazy idea. I seem to remember that Russian rifle teams in the past would reload 22s. As I recall they used a drop of some sort of liquid primer, let it dry and reload. If and where this material is available and whether it would be legal I don't know. If available - it could put a whole bu...

Re: Help with caliber confirmation #4 rolling block

Opps - I made an error -- Dixie sells conversion brass for 38R -- not 32R.

Re: Help with caliber confirmation #4 rolling block

Dixie Gun Works sells 32R conversion cases so hand loads can be produced. A 22 blank is used for the primer. Slow to load since the 22 has to be lined up with the firing pin for the whole thing to work but works well in my Flobert. Another option I've considered is drilling a new path for the firing...

Re: Surge in Prices?

Just applied for our FOID card renewals - may take forever but the application should be good for the duration. Took 4 months for my CCL but that was just before Corona. Shelves are bare for most reloading supplies. Good that I stocked up before the troubles and I was able to find a few thousand W20...

Re: wanted .22 model 12cs stock

There are several stock makers that can help you with a semi-inletted to a fully finished stock. Depends on what you want to spent, quality of wood, checkering etc.

Re: Antique or not?: Remington Rolling Block Baby Carbine with 20" barrel

Good question. As far as I know the S/N would be used to determine pre 1899 status. This of course is possible only if a reliable S/N data base is available. If no data base is known the only other way would be to have the original sales documentation at hand which in most cases would be very unlike...

Re: Help identifying shot gun

First - can it be repaired? I've repaired many a stock with little or no signs of repair. eBay usually has stocks available -- you'll just have to wait until the right one comes along. You may need to buy a matching forehand as well if matching is important.
