Dennis, I hate to correct my elders but the 1968 Olympic games were held in Mexico City & that is where the MX8 name came from on the drop out trigger guns that made Perazzi well known & I can't remember the name of the men's International

I'd call them all boxlocks. They're just generally referred to as dropout trigger or fixed trigger and everyone knows what yer talking about. The drop-out trigger guns have a one piece breech - top tang - backstrap - bottom tang unit that does not d

i would suggest taking your photos with a tape or yardstick along side...that gives everyone a better idea of how layouts might proceed... your additional shots of #1 look like a very good grain flow through the wrist... developing a taste for nice

So, you’re starting to see the possibilities of the short barreled AR? A common configuration might have just came down to what sold well at the time, and the special order option was seemingly easily available? It’s a curiosity that you didn’t run i

There were and are many highwalls in many calibers that are light and "handy" with shorter and longer barrels as well, but 1885 actions are very short compared to a 1895, for example. So a 28" or longer will still be quite "handy&
