    Slick is making things right, so I'm not concerned about that. :) .

    I replaced the original firing pin a while ago when I was working the action. I haven't tried the WWG trigger in this rifle but they work fine in my 1895 and 308ME. I was actually hoping the Phantom would work in my 1895's as the WWG trigger curve has an edge that brings blood after a magazine load or three. The PT has a much better profile and edge.

    To expand on my original question, can the out of battery firing damage the rifle or cause the bolt to move/eject aft out of the receiver? With the block not in place that would only leave the lever holding things in.


    why in the world wud you take the block out????

  2. maybe to ease your mind a bit,,,, the out of battery discharges I've seen it didn't matter if the lever safety worked or not, it was caused by the lever being jerked back and forth during a malfuction and the firing pin had enough inertia to fire the round...



  3. sure thing!! I use Cheditte now,,, nary a miss fire or primer seated too deeply now.. I fly in on monday and will be out at cowtown tues and wed some,,, as well at the range

  4. lunger, I wont use them if the rim of the primer can't be felt along the brass,,,, I've never had a misfire with checking them like that,,, every misfire I've seen the rim is pressed into the primer hole deeper than I like,,, I found this when I had some problems years ago, now I try to make sure I check every loaded shell for this, and have seen plenty of new ones with the same problem


    I also quite using FEDs 209s because the was about a .003 variance in the depth of the primer cup.....


    no feely primer rim,, no usey shell!!

  5. back to the burr,,, if someone has a burr under their saddle about me, I just try to kill them with kindness,,,, if I have the burr, I figure I taint perfect either and let it go,, sometimes it takes me a lil while to complete it, but I try....


    99% if the people in SASS are the salt of the earch,,, the other 1% are sometimes a challenge that has to be overcome...


    and yes, sometimes you have to walk away and put it in the past

  6. Phone rang at 6:20 this morning,,, friday,,, "you running late?" was the question....


    DUH!!! it is FRIDAY!! I cud hear a woman's laughter in the background,,, so two of them were 24 hours early!!!!


    glad it was not me!!!

  7. if you can get your hands on used carpet or cheap remnants, cut it about 3x4 feet and lay them over the legs.. two reasons.... it does cut down on splatter and it catches the lead as it goes to the ground,,, afterwards roll them up and dump the lead into a bucket,,,

  8. My memory of this issue may not be correct,and I have finally discarded most of the notes that I had of the many discussions while I was the Chair of the ROC. But my recollections are that the revolver in question was disapproved for use in SASS competition, at least in the USA. I'm sure that PW has his notes.... he has notes from the first Sand Box meeting in his Kindergarten class!
