huntsman, hmm-m-m

Rick, just blue-skying here: My huntsman barrel is .625" outside diameter, untapered, which happens to be 5/8 of an inch. A piece of 5/8" inside diameter tubing could be cut to length, split to about...

Thanks, tfrank!

I have a Mossy 351KA, LR only, I'd like to be able to shoot shorts in - I'll order the springs and guide rod and give it a try. I have a Western Field Model SD57, the regular Savage/Springfield gill...

"Thanks guys.
To compare one cartridge to another for this cycling issue does it all come down to foot pounds at the muzzle? That info is published."
SAch, I wouldn't go by foot pounds. I'd use the...

Oh Yeah

There is a savage or stevens gill gun marked short-long-long rifle, I had one some years back, I can't remember the model number or what I did with it, but it should cycle the quiet lr.
There's the...

Y' welcome, Rosscoe. The mechanism is ingenious but not precise...stamped metal technology just won't allow precision and mysterious things happen. Seems like sometimes cause and effect are...

Yeah, redmike, I was thinking it ought to do better. If I remember, though, they only tested it with plinking grade ammo, which is what most people who buy one will use. Maybe a higher grade of fuel...

How it works (Long, get a cup of coffee)

46's have an odd mechanism. The "floorplate" of the action (has the cut in it for the elevator to flip back & forth in) is the shell stop for the magazine tube. With the bolt open, the plate's front...

My luck hasn't been good as yours has with aftermarket mags....answers to the problem probably boil down to:

Winchester should have studied Remington's 522 Viper. Won't hold it against them, in fact I'm dickering for a Model 69 now - but I doubt any Wildcats will still be shooting after 80 years.

Oh, yeah!

I have an '81 model I stumbled into 20 years ago, more or less, it's my only squirrel hunting rifle ever since - with cci short hollow points and a Nikon Prostaff 2x7, it makes me look good. Some...

N2 for 69?

Hi Gents,
I'm negotiating for a Model 69, wrong sights, rough wood and tired metal, but excellent rifling - offhand, will a vintage N2 scope mount work, or will the bolt clearance require a N3, or...

accuracy

Probably more gun-to-gun variation than year-to-year. One of your two candidates might shoot better with Federal and the other shine with CCI. You'll most likely be able to find something that shoots...

yeah, like tickridger said

Yup, cci short hollow points - been using them squirrel hunting in my 552 for ten, fifteen years - it'll hold a bunch, and hits the bushytails hard. Walmart used to have them but not anymore, a...

Thanks everyone for your replies - I am thinking now I will try to find an original barrel for it, maybe call havlin's next week, and then see if I can find a smith to jag it in for me. I suspect the...

It may be a cruddy chamber, too - see if the fired brass is all scratched up on the sides. Maybe a good chamber cleaning will help.....

Yeah, I can see it would be easy - I figured the price of a barrel would be easy enough, and I'd change it. Need to get a quote from a 'smith, but just putting a good crown on it and shooting it is...

Whew!
