Re: Simson serial numbers Der Ami 05/21/24 08:32 PM
In addition to being Jewish owned, one of the reasons for hard feelings about Simson, I think, is because they were chosen after the Great War to build/rebuild arms for the limited military services that the treaty allowed. Their pre-WW2 reputation was always that they built high quality guns.

Re: Imman Meffert? Der Ami 05/21/24 08:14 PM
Jtplumb,
If they don't chamber and a chamber cast shows the chamber is one of the 9.3x72Rs other than the "N" version, there are a couple possible solutions. You might be able to modify the cartridges to fit the chamber, or it can be rechambered. This is one of a couple rechambering jobs that doesn't require re-proof, even under German law. While I would prefer to keep the gun original, it is yours, not mine. There are a couple other cartridges it could be chambered for and carry the 118,35 proofs. One is 9x58R Sauer& Sohn, others are 9.3x57R or 9.3x70R. I f a chamber cast shows it is chambered for one of these, you can handload for it.
Mike

Wouldn't it be something if he was the writer of the Phantom comics? That was THE COMIC that everyone followed in the newspaper back in the 1960s. I delivered the local newspaper back then and everyone followed The Phantom. Maybe we had a bigger celebrity on here than everyone thought.

The video is interesting - his rabbit holes always are. I wonder how that gun managed to ever stay straight and what caused it suddenly "take off to the left". I think I would have given up on it early on.

Re: Just 4-months to the grouse opener... Lloyd3 05/21/24 02:21 PM
No bugs to speak of here yet, but I'll bet you're right. There will be plenty shortly. Last year was very bad here, the worst Spring I've ever experienced here for bugs. One wonders if that had anything to do with last Fall's bounty of birds?

Re: What grade D. M. Lefever & Sons Terry Buffum 05/21/24 07:14 AM
Both guns shown are on the trigger plate actions typical of the early cross bolt guns. The "Not Connected" is thought to indicate Syracuse manufacture, also an early characteristic.

The first gun shown is almost surely a 7D, but as has been stated, grade markings are often non existent except as mentioned by "Keith". The small amount of carving in the checkered cheek would be very unusual on an 8E as would the "wings" on the barrels.

Otherwise, I’m at a loss as it’s been many years..

Charlie was indeed from Arkansas, about 40 minutes across the river from Memphis, at Caldwell. Small in stature, but large in presence. He and his family owned much land along the L' Anguille River near Forrest City, where they grew cotton and rice. I met him in the '90s at a m/l match in SC and we became instant friends. He invited me to meet his nephew who hunted ducks in the L' Anguille River bottoms. I've been hunting with the family there, and they've been coming here to hunt turkeys, ever since....... 25+ years. Just this past March Charlie's great nephew killed a big gobbler on one of my places here in GA. Small world.

Very nice rifle, the Ruger. Good luck with the sale.
