Re: Who Knows the Standard Bore-Size of a "TWO"Bore?? Jerry G 06/22/24 07:58 PM
I agree with NTaxiarchis that the barrels were reused & stocked later than the dates on them. I have only found dates on G. L. Bailey barrels & no serial numbers. The barrels could have been made by Charles E. Staples in Portland, Maine. The "& Co." refers to a partnership Bailey had in the 1850s.

Re: Remove Breech Plug on W C Scott percussion double Mike Rowe 06/22/24 05:16 PM
The tool you need is called a hut wrench.

I don't know if you can rent one anywhere - most of us have made our own.

A large tap wrench can be modified with new jaws, or one can simply be made out of a steel bar by making a slot and removing extra material to provide any necessary clearance.

Re: Need help with the year & model of my Charles Daly Tripplebeards 06/21/24 10:44 PM
Well, I learned something new the last couple of days with that number 65 stamped on the barrel saying it’s the chamber length! Decades ago I had the chamber measured by a gunsmith in town that told me it was a 2 7/8 inch 10 gauge chamber. A 2 7/8 inch RST shell drops right in the chamber and I’ve shot probably 30 of them without issue. After seeing that number 65 and listening to a YouTuber saying that’s the millimeter measurement in chamber size made me scratch my head because that comes out to 2.559 inches. I measured to the forcing cone today several times and came up with 2.775” on average. Well, I would assume that is with a 2 5/8 inch hole or 2 1/2 inch hole unfolded??? Explains why I never got a good pattern with the three boxes of two and 7/8 inch shells. It taught me how to get into 10 gauge shotgun reloading anyways because I’ve used those holes several times and they’re cut down probably a half inch shorter so they never came close to the forcing cones with my roll crimping. I have basically 2 boxes total of impossible to find 2 7/8” lead #5’s and #6’s. Thirteen 5’s and 6 #6’s. I sure would hate to tear those things down and just to reload them. I’m probably better off selling them out right or horse trading them for ammo I can use.

Where is this procedure described in the Constitution?
Doesn't a president have the authority to pass or veto a bill that comes to him? Just asking. 🙂

Sure, the President can outright veto a bill and send it back to Congress. But that is not germane to the discussion at hand.
If you read down toward the bottom it says: "Taking a cue from the NRA, Trump used his executive authority to write a BATF&E regulation banning bump stocks." Unquote. Now what I read was that when Trump first tried that, he screwed up the paperwork and they did not accept his application. Other than that I don't know what you are talking about. But as you remember, Trump told the anti-gun people (the relatives of the victims) he would ban the bump stock. And doing his usual, "Donald Trump talking out both sides of his mouth" he turned around and said he never really wanted the bump stock banned. So, that way he can please the pro gun people and not get into trouble with the NRA. And tell the victim's relatives, "Well, I tried." His first application to do all of this was rejected because of some type of a flaw in his application. That is all I am saying. Have a nice day. smile

I tend to agree with this. Hodgdon was pretty reasonably priced powder for many decades. They got their start when Bruce Hodgdon became an entrepreneur before I was born, and bought up train-car loads of WWII surplus military powder, and sold it at a very cheap price to reloaders.

I read varying accounts of why powder, primers, and other components have gotten so expensive. Supposedly nitrocellulose and other chemicals are in short supply, but the chemicals used to make nitrocellulose have always been pretty cheap and readily available. Some industry insiders say that stringent EPA regulations have caused manufacturers to either close plants, or charge a lot more, so electing a pro-gun President who is also against excess government regulations helped matters prior to 2020, and if Trump is re-elected, it could help us again.

Then there is the increased cost of brass, bullet metal, primers, and powder due to wars, conflicts, and foreign policy disasters of the past 3 1/2 years with Biden and company. Supplying Ukraine for all that time, along with stockpiling for a conflict with China due to poor Democrat leadership isn't helping. Trump quickly stomped ISIS into submission, was intelligently winding down our presence in Afghanistan, and kept Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran from starting any new conflicts. It only took Biden a couple months to screw all that up, even worse than it had been under Obama. And of course, there is still a lot of hoarding by shooters who understand that the Democrats are always doing all they can to restrict supply and increase the costs of shooting through legislation and threat of lawsuits.

Another big factor is the general inflation rate since Biden took office. Because of Bidenomics, every dollar you had saved in 2020 has now lost about 20% of its' value. The dollars you earn now purchase less overall. This affects manufacturers too, so when they pay more for raw materials, fuel, energy, transportation, loan interest, regulations, taxes, and wages... then naturally those costs will be passed onto us. Older shooters on fixed incomes will be impacted even more than younger shooters who may still see at least some wage increases over time. That's why Ronald Reagan famously said, "Inflation is the cruelest tax of all."

Re: Cerakote and doublegun solder Ted Schefelbein 06/19/24 12:38 PM
Dustin sent a photo a while back of a coated gun, and the thing looked like it had been hot blued in the picture. Fantastic work. The sad truth is, run of the mill boxlocks are approaching zero demand, and if a guy has one and wants to use it, I shouldn’t care too much about what finish he wants to put on it.

Hey, the queen is dead.

Maybe reach out to Dustin (LeFusil, here) to pick his brain about the gun and the process that was used.

The other thing to keep in mind is that the solder joints on a shotgun barrel eventually need maintenance. It is a regular part of ownership, it just happens. If you are close to that point, your spiffy new finish might be ruined by the ribs needing to be re-layed.

Good luck.

Best,
Ted

Re: Broken Ejector Toby Barclay 06/18/24 01:35 PM
I would concur with most of the advice above.
However, the skill level of your chosen gunsmith is equally important to the method used.
I have repaired exactly the break you have with laser welding and it is still working fine but I approached it with my brain turned on, chose my filler metal carefully and hardened and tempered to achieve toughness not wear resistance. I made sure all filing was carefully radiused and polished.
If you let someone do it who doesn't understand the requirements, it could fail very quickly.
If you go for the gold standard option and have the whole leg remade, the straightness and filing/machining the flat of the split stem is critical or you may have all sort of other issues.
Frankly, if the gun was mine and I didn't have access to a first class gunsmith, I would go for laser welding the original two parts (probably using stainless filler rod as we have discovered it mops up a lot of the carbon, reducing the chance of cracking) and then temper to a fairly soft state to give you toughness. It will wear but if you keep it clean it will probably see you out.

Bill,
I'm sorry about the loss of your Grampa's guns. You are right that they can't be replaced, but you can start now, getting guns for your grand kids (and great grandkids). They will appreciate them as much as you appreciated your grampa's that were lost.

Side safety Austin Hawthorne 06/17/24 03:37 PM
Recently purchased a Francotte grade 20E with a greener side safety. I don't think it was a conversion since there is no remnant of a normal safety. Has anyone seen any similar Francottes or are aware of why this gun could have been ordered this way?
