I have wasted everybody's time, I'm sorry to say. I misread/forgot what I read on the top strap. The gun is the common 1906 Trapper model H&R.

That's good for the purpose of refurbishing it, but...

Ah! Now it makes sense. I think all that is missing is the hammer and the V spring that actuates the lifter and the hand.

Thanks.

H&R antique 1902 7-shot revolver

I have most of one of these.

The barrel is pitted beyond any hope of accuracy if I did shoot it. The hammer and mainspring are missing and perhaps some other inside parts. The condition is poor,...

Remington does, but it doesn't matter. If they can't sell rimfires because of a shortage of ammunition, they will pressure those who make it.

prod rimfire manufacturers

I say it's time for all shooters to put gun makers on notice that we will not buy ANY new .22 rim fire firearm until the supply of ammunition becomes normal. Why should Remington, Ruger, and the...

First, auto parts stores sell spray cans of stuff that is made to dissolve all kinds of adhesives. Worth looking for.

hiwall, thanks for the post. Is the large cylindrical section under the scope an integral part of the original diameter of the barrel?

Yes, the breach locking block on the Remington is silver soldered to the barrel. As far as welding changing the heat treatment, two ideas are at work. First, barrels are not hardened. Second, I would...

Depending on income, some would say the same thing about the whole gun.

My position is, since the screw is so easy to fix, why be lazy and buy a new one?

Single shotgun-rife project

For years, I have wanted to mount a rifle barrel on my 1893 Remington single-barrel receiver. (You're not really going to expect me to have a reason, are you?) The plan includes a .401 bore barrel...

The difference is inside. Don't think I could take a shot that would show it. Maybe later today I can section one of the shells that is too corroded or bent up to use. Then the difference would show.

Another question. A few of these cases are Rem-UMC and have the large primer pocket, but all are the "balloon" type. So, when did the drawn/solid base shells make their appearance?

antique primer size bewilderment

Cold thread I guess, but forged is stronger than cast IF the same steel is used and the heat treating is appropriate for each--heat treating might be different for each.

Where are the rough Mausers?

Decades ago my browsing in gun shops turned up very few really nice early Mausers--models 91 through 96--and lots of beater type 91s and 93s.

Now, I don't see many in any condition and none of the...
