Re: Off-topic: How Colorado has changed. craigd 02/23/24 12:09 PM
Okay, another example. In the US, Pesident T seated three Supreme Court Justices, and an R Senate blocked the obam nominee garland, who has become an activist at the highest level. Another activist at the highest level would be maiyorkiss, with his southern and northern porous border policy, both devised by an administration. I argue intentionally that the two, activism and politics, cannot be separated.

The US would look quite different, if the billary, of Canada based off shore political foreign campaign fundraising foundation, had shaped the high court of the US. The activists were still around, and so was the hypocrisy of so called, social attitudes? No big deal, you win, but votes matter and affect policy.

I release the foxes and the bobcats- the coyotes receive no mercy. I am not really a trapper, I just a set a few traps on my property, hence the surprise when I am successful! I have never before had two in the same day.

Re: London vs Birmingham engraving BrentD, Prof 02/23/24 01:49 AM
The polisher for my Greener was a man named, Jones for 6 shilling. There was also a "smoother". I was thinking the polisher was a metals guy and the smoother was a wood guy, but I don't know for sure. Interesting, at least to me, was that there were 3 engravers for the gun. Stokes, Horrocks, and Perry did the labels, scroll, and field figures, respectively. Perhaps 3 engravers was a norm, but I would have thought 2 was a lot.

Re: Front sight on double rifle Rick W 02/23/24 12:57 AM
If your front site dovetail is in line with the bores, then it is a friction fit. Some have a screw on the end of the muzzle to keep the front site from coming out upon recoil.

Re: Drilling questions. Der Ami 02/22/24 03:41 PM
Lloyd,
Of course, you are right to check those things but repair of them wouldn't be very different than an American double. While you are checking proof marks, see if there is a crown E on the rifle barrel. If so, it would have been "Express proofed. This is a heavier than normal proof but by no means is it a magnum level. This is on the level of a couple thousand psi and is important only for handloaders, because factory loads at this level are no longer available. For Alabama, 9.3x72R is a pretty good cartridge, whether factory or handloads. It is about like 35 Remington which is pretty popular in its own right. If the barrel is decent, it should do well with handloaded cast bullets which work very well on deer. Of course, if you hunt the more open areas of Colorado, you may prefer a little flatter trajectory.
Mike

Imagine what damage might have happened if David wasn't observant enough to recognize that the advice given in the post QUOTED above was totally wrong. All three solutions given to remove this pin or screw were wrong. Not even close.

I didn't offer any advice because I simply didn't know how this gun was assembled. I suppose I could have taken a guess, but it would have been irresponsible to make a wild-assed guess sound so definitive. This is just another example that you should not believe much of what is posted by wannabe experts on the internet. Thank goodness gunmaker came along with the correct and straightforward solution.

I learned this in a big way several years ago when I began researching the use of feed grade molasses as a rust remover. I found quite a few posts that incorrectly explained the chemistry behind it, the effectiveness , and potential damage that some "internet experts" warned could happen.

When I finally bought a 50 Lb. sack of dried molasses and mixed some with water, I proceeded carefully by using some old rusty items that didn't have great value. It worked great, and it quickly became apparent that much of the bad advice given came from guys who never even tried it. I guess some people just have a pathetic need to pretend that they know way more than they do.

Re: Webley and Scott 20 gunman 02/22/24 12:12 PM
Coming into this conversation some what late , the 720 and 728 models were made in the early 70's specifically for the US market . They were similar to the 702 model in appearance , stocked with panels and points but had 26 and 25 inch barrels.

It is a wonderful book with biographical information about DGJ authors combined with new articles from those same authors. It has been well worth the information included and the price paid.

Re: State of Gun Collector Shows Lloyd3 02/21/24 04:33 PM
I haven't attended a gunshow in a long time now and, for all the usual reasons. But, I was just dragooned into attending the Colorado Collector's Show here next Spring (it's now held up north in Greeley, CO, well away from !@#*%&! Denver) as a buddy of mine needs some help disbursing a number of inherited guns he's been dealing with. Like me, his tastes have evolved over the years (as well as his needs) and he's got some nicer stuff that he'll likely never use (a lot of WWII stuff IIRC). I suppose that I too should consider my battery and see if I have a few old soldiers that need new homes. I suspect that I'll mostly be there as a "babysitter", but you never know. In Colorado, it's been described as the "last good show".

Re: Henry double rifle parts? Licensed to kill 02/20/24 01:48 PM
I may be in need of a front sight. Was working up some loads and it is shooting very high (9" high @ 50 yards). I have a couple loads that look promising so will load some up and shoot 100 yards but doubt very much that it will come down to POA from that high. It also shoots a bit right (an inch or so) at 50, even though I see the front sight is made slightly to the right already and the rear was centred and marked. I drifted the rear a bit to the left to see if I can dial in the windage but my OCD does NOT like to see the rear off centre, even if it is just a little (don't like the front being off centre to the right either but it is not very noticeable). Anyways, if it still shoots high at 100 with the 100 yard leaf, I will need to get a slightly higher front sight. I suppose I could make one but the dovetail appears to be very shallow and "delicate" but if I can get a proper sight and just replace it, that would be preferable.
