I'll be interested to see that one, Steve. I've only ever had one Dickson round action single in my paws - a 450/400 x 2 3/8". It looked kind of like if the right side of a trigger plate had been used - the breech pin was offset to the left.

To the OP - cherish that little Fraser. It's way more special than any of those contraptions that came out of London!

Steve,
I’d be interested to see the Ingram too when you get it. Please share a picture if you can.

I'm not sure what I will do with it, bad bore on it. I would not mind building a tip open single rifle, I bought it just to look it over.

Big problem: at some point in the 130-year history of this gun someone lost the piece that had been cut off to make it a youth stock. So they used a piece of cheap wood and then camouflaged it with paint and feathered in grain. The original plan of refinishing the stock was abandoned and I had a whole new stock and matching forend made. A lot more money than I planned, but I felt I had to do it for this magnificent piece of history.

Sorry came late to the post and my advice is superfluous!

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.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
