No photo!!!! We want photos...LOL
Yeah. The pic didn’t load with the post. It’s there now tho.
I really can’t wait to get out and put some rounds on paper to see how the .300 wsm does at longer ranges.
Got a Sako Finnwolf 308 but too old and stupid to figure out how to post a Pic !
Sako finnwolf here and above
Glad you guys liked it , you don't see these every day.!
I've got a sweet '59 Marlin 39A, but I'm a total Marlin rimfire fanboy & need a 56 Levermatic to keep it company.
Me too. Been looking for years for a Winchester in .45 LC, Now too damn expensive..
I have had one for many years, and really put it to use. Its been a test gun for bullet tech, I have used it for pressure tests in 45 Colt, it was a camp rifle in several African Safaris. For several years I took it to South Africa as a truck gun when we traveled. Its been around the block and back a few times.
I had it in Tanzania in 2005 as a camp rifle, and took a few critters with it...........Whatever it cost, it has been worth it twice over............ It is on the range now, still with strain gage hooked up and can run pressures when I need to.
In Tanzania I was running a Aimpoint on it, it worked ok, but soon as I got home it came off, I just can't see well in the brush with a red dot of any sort.........
Used to sleep with my 11" Tanto on my cot in Kenya. Troops of baboons would just be just outside the tents.
Looking to steal your kit!.............. LOL................
The monkeys at Mt Kenya Safari Club liked to steal tea cups & saucers from the china hutch things outside our chalets. What say old chap, fancy a spot of tea? Fortunately, some friends had spent time in Panama & warned me about messing with the monkeys.
What strain guage tests are you using
I have Oehler System 83 and Pressure Trace 1 and Pressure Trace II.............
Since this is Lever guns..............
There's another thread (in the Corral) that would welcome some more break-action shotgun photos!
Well, perhaps in my naivete, and eagerness to have some more content in the break-action shotgun thread, I misconstrued that side-by-side firearm's nature? I had not realized or considered the possibility of a side-by-side break action center fire rifle (have only seen Henry's single bore rifles). What then, pray, is that in the lower picture of post 136?
Those are double rifles, one is 500 NE and the other is 470 NE.............. just photos I Had showing the various pressure equipment is all...... the other fellow asked about...........Sorry for the confusion. As you never considered the rifle part, I never considered the shotgun part.
