  1. Which section of the Duck? In Coffee County, below the dam at Normandy & through the town, around Cortner's mill, it's excellent stocked trout fishing year round. The Elk is better though, around Farris Creek right up to Tim's Ford dam. Im told it's also excellent down steam, but I have no personal experience. The Smallmouth & trout fishing is excellent in both rivers though.
  2. Just to give you an idea..... These are all 'recognized' chamberings. Im sure there are as many home made wildcats.....
  3. This is literally the only way to know for sure. Being an old mauser, rechambered literally anytime in the last 100 years, you'd be silly not to. There were many tens of .21 & .22 caliber Wildcats designed and chambered in the '30s thru the '70s. My guess (&that's all it is) judging from the age of the gun & what was popular in the 'golden age of tinkering' when everyone was chasing speed, is it could very well be a. 223 wildcat based on the .250-3000 Savage.
  4. Thanks for the offer (i thought id closed this thread) but i'm all set up with a winchester action.
  5. I have that exact same SW 'folding hunter' My hunting partner picked it up at an auction in Big Piney, Wyoming last year. He gifted it to me as a thank you for dragging him out there! The very next day, I killed a big cow elk & used the knife to completely clean, dress & quarter the old girl. It'll be on my belt again this year.....
  6. Fyi..... I moved here from England. Believe me brother, I feel your pain..... However, shipping a rifle TO TN from NY, even from NYC is as simple as I posted.
  7. I have a good friend living in the Adirondacks. He's sent me 3 rifle's over the years & it was literally as simple as him taking each rifle to his local gun store & them shipping it to my local ffl. It was no more difficult for either of us than that.
  8. Yessir. As shiny as they can get it.
  9. Bubba hit the stock with a rattle can full of good intentions... "Twiddly bits" = bottom metal, trigger, bolt shroud & scope mounts. I'm undecided what to do about a recoil pad. I'd love a nice, checkered steel number, case hardened, but it'll mean a pretty short LOP. Like, 12.5" short.
  10. Weellll........ $20 later. Decisions were made, money was spent, gunsmiths were contacted & I'm turning the proverbial sow's ear into a silk purse. So far, I've replaced the firing pin, polished & repaired the safety & sent the barrelled action off to ER Shaw for a rebarreling to 6.5x55. Once I have it back, it's getting sent right back out to GTs Customizing in Cody, WY to be reblued & have a few twiddly bits color case hardened. In the interim I've got a stunning lump of walnut, that some tit decided to varnish, to strip, polish & apply 30-odd coats of oil to, then ship off for checkering. I can't wait to get this one going!
  11. With the hex bolts & carpet edging trigger guard?
  12. Remember the Somalian poacher's rifle I posted about a year or so back?
