  1. If you have a reasonable price on the brass, i'd be interested in it.
  2. I've still got a .458 win on my 'need to build' list.
  3. There are over 16,000,000 words in the english vocabulary & there is no combination of them that can adequately express how much I want this.
  4. Thanks! It's actually a Sears brand, budget model 70. The Supergrade swivels we're an expensive lesson. I didn't realize there were 2 sizes available: the original, pre-64 half inch & the later 'Uncle Mike's' size. Both mounts are about the same price at $60ish per pair, but the sling swivels?! Yeesh! $10 for good quality Uncle Mike's. $150+ per pair for originals! I ended up gambling $200 for 2 sets of swivels & selling the spares on ebay for $172, luckily!
  5. Yessir, good eye! Sears Model 52. I considered changing it the safety for a winchester, since there are no markings on the action, but I figured it made it just different enough that folks might question it. That's a damn good catch, XT!
  6. He's in Crab Orchard, just outside Crossville.
  7. I started a thread ages ago about a guy wanting me to take his rifle to the range to zero for him..... Well, long story short, I ended up with it because I had an idea & apparently i'm an idiot with far too much time on my hands. ER Shaw, trued the action & installed a new 20" barrel. I had them copy the factory profile & chamber it in my favorite 6.5x55 Swede. The barreled action & all metal parts were then sent to GTs Customizing in Casper WY for polishing, bluing & color case hardening. I tackled the Ebay stock. Removed years wort
  8. Thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciate it! A couple of good friends have possibly found what I need & are going to mail them to me.
  9. Picked her up on here a couple of months back looking like this.... I picked up a bargain priced 1896 small ring stock on ebay (i'd love to say I did it with the intention of modifying the inletting, but honestly i'd had a couple of bourbons & screwed up....) It arrived yesterday & i set to work the gouges, chisels & rasps. Now she looks like this: I have the bolt with an old guy in Wisconsin getting the super short knob replaced with a traditional, butterknife handle. Once that's back it's going to Terry Walden to have scope mounts fitted. This has been a s
  10. Shot her with my .300blk, 110gn Barnes Tac-TX at 12 feet. Hit her in the neck & recovered the bullet from her offside shoulder. Dropped on the spot!
  11. Thank you! I really appreciate it. Thanks Mac, it really needs to be an inch or inch and a quarter. Don't worry, you'll see it. My sling swivels arrive today & other than this screw, that's the final thing.
