  1. Free Bump - Major Kong is an excellent guy, & wish I needed another high-end 1911
  2. thank you chuckstur, in this case I sure wouldn't mind cutting the old barrel off but I would prefer a non-Remage. thanks. xtriggerman, I actually have two 'excess' older match rifles (a pre war + post 64 classic CRF) that I am looking at. I don't have any records but since were multiple re-barreled match rifles, my understanding is the threads may have been re-cut as part of a blueprint / truing process. And I am sure not an expert, but if recut then my thought of using a factory take-off barrel to make a hunting rifle might not work? Both rifles have a lot of sentimen
  3. Thank you for posting this, I wasn't aware of this change!
  4. thank you, that was interesting - I am ordering one of the referenced books
  5. hey Capbyrd, I am just trying to educate myself a little. I have always liked Randalls, but I actually prefer Border patrol handle (or just one finger groove) not multiple groves like this. And we used to use Kiwi to blacken a brown sheath, but apparently factory black was also an option when this was made. I don't have a #1 anymore. And years ago I traded my old beat up #14 straight across for a shiny new #15 (and in hind sight not such a good deal). Then I found this new #14 to replace my old #14. thanks, Tim
  6. Is there someone local Nash area who has tools/fixture/skills to spin a Winchester Model 70 barrel off? I have an older match rifle that I want to re-purpose into a hunting rifle, so first step is spin the old heavy palma barrel off to check threads. If the threads haven't been changed as part of last re-barrel, then I may look for a factory take-off barrel. and I would prefer to not send it now with all the shipping delays and general crazy , but I also have heard the Winchester 'pre-64' controlled round feed actions are a little harder to work on. thanks ! Tim
  7. thanks guys, any of you knowledgeable about Randall's ? I have had a few #1 , #15 several #14s. I *think* I bought this one on a whim at Nordic Knife in Solvang on vacation about 15 years ago. I use an older #15, but this #14 is a total safe queen - and only one I have with the forward curved hilt and a black sheath.
  8. - that will provide some additional motivation when it's hard to let something excess go!
  9. Congratulations - it looks like you had a great time + should be some fantastic eats!! I started selling some 'excess things' to save for future out of state hunts, figuring the experience and memories would mean more to me than extra things do. so COVID messed with my fall plans, but it's really great to see your hunt story here.
  10. absolutely makes a fine deer rifle - not much you couldn't hunt in North America with that.
  11. great job Wade, that looks really good! what is the rifle?
  12. quick update, and I really appreciate the guys who posted here as well as a couple PMs from others that I received - I didn't realize I had so many excellent choices. I went with Wilson Taxidermy in Franklin. I just got the mounts back, and I was extremely pleased with entire experience. Really nice guys, offered me lots of options & ideas. Thanks!
