  1. Thanks GJ, appreciated. Looking at the toggle links and the bolt (over and over again) an empty cartridge is definitely seated as far as it will go when the lever safety is disengaged and the trigger allows the hammer to fall. Pretty sure all is good, I can't see how I've changed how the mechanism works ...... and that was a damn clever mechanism invention for 1873. Looking at the innards of one of these wonderful rifles when its all laid out on your work bench, its impossible not to admire the design and the machining that went into these back in the day with the machinery that was on hand to them (even the lighting over their benches and design tables!). Your bit that I put in bold above, that could save a nasty impaled finger. Something that hadn't crossed my mind.
  2. G'day all, I installed a reduced strength lever safety spring. I'm not sure where the original one allowed the trigger to let the hammer fall, looking at the way the mechanism works I 'think' it would have to be the same distance as now. But for peace of mind I'd thought I'd check with the cowboy pards brain trust. Here's some pics below. That's a small (but it looks larger in the pics) 5/64" drill bit and with the lever pulled up against it and pulling the trigger the hammer will fall. I wish I'd tested it that way with the original in place so I know all's good. I don't want any OOB problems (or any other unforeseen probs). So in a nutshell is all good with the trigger being able to be pulled and hammer falling when the lever is 5/64" away from full closure? I've looked and looked and looked at how the mechanism work as stated above and can't see how a lightened spring could change the distance.....but am I missing something? I'd rather not go through the whole process of taking the rifle apart again and installing the factoring spring just to check that distance if I don't have to. Thanks in advance (and hope I've made a semblance of sense in my question)

  7. The lever/trigger safety spring was fun, these would have helped It needed a little altering as well as it was too wide to fit.
  8. Thanks GK, that's exactly how in the end (after quite some time) I got it back by starting at the front end. Then I I was able to slowly bit by bit get positioned. That worked perfectly!
  9. Any hints on how to get the trigger assembly back into the receiver '73? It was really tight getting it out, and I'm having trouble just getting it started. Any good recommended method to get it started in?

  11. Dear Sporting Shooters, It has been quite some time since our last propellant update. We would like to assure you, the factory continues to run at maximum capacity, 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, and we’re supplying as much propellant to the market as possible. Any difficulty in accessing our propellants is due to unprecedented demand and not a reduction in manufacturing or supply to the Australian market. Below is an update on our propellants and the popularity/frequency of manufacture for each. Trail Boss – This propellant is unlikely to be released in 2022 as there continues to be an active research and development project associated with its manufacturing optimisation. APS Propellants – As we’ve previously informed, we’ve had to make the incredibly difficult decision to pause active development projects and cease production of commercial reloading products under the Australian Pistol & Shotgun (APS) range for the foreseeable future. ADI World Class would like to thank you for your continued support. We wish you a happy and safe New Year. http://www.adiworldclass.com.au/2021/12/16/propellant-update/?fbclid=IwAR3NTDaJzWLWMRr4tr2_embwbGCGIxfi6TuvQp_i7qi3VLu182MX75oICWM
  12. Nope ..... a 'k' is a kilometer
  13. Its hard to go to a BBQ and not see someone wearing a map of Tassie apron, they get a lot cruder than the one below.
  14. I've got some AS50N as well that I've never used (always used AP50N) if things get desperate......I'll have to try it.
  15. When the hell are you good ol' boys gonna get metricated
  16. Got mine yesterday, feel a little off today and my arm is sore, but very very happy to have gotten it so close to Christmas and the massive influx of city tourists that are about to descend on my little country seaside town for 6 weeks of summer holidays.
  17. Thanks, I was very happy to be able to purchase powder.
  18. With all the rain its been an absolute bumper start to summer (La Niña) for the farmers for cutting silage, they are getting a lot of cuts. The 30k drive into town from home there's literally thousands of bails being bailed up and stacked. Can't remember when the district had it so good, I think it was in the '90's.
  19. I was able to get my hands on two of these and a bunch of mates were able to get another six. Never used ADI APS 350, but was happy to get my hands on some.
