I must admit Chev.  I may be one of those people that have to many projects. The Remington Rolling block project has been set aside for the time being. Not much to report ,since the last work I did on it. It is in the stock shaping stage and I am not happy with the way they are shaping up. Thanks for the follow up. If I ever get it presentable I will post a pic. of it. ,,,,,,,DT

Very Old Advice:  "take Sculpting The Stock Very Slow, take little cuts off as if you take big ones and you go too Far, you have a Real PROJECT in putting the error Right.  It is EASY to Take it off but HARD to put it back on".

Best of Wishes for you and your Family this Christmas and New Year Season and for the Year to come.

Coming up on Mother's Day and I am looking forward to Visiting with old Friends at a dinner on May 16th at "The 94th Aero Squadron A Restaurant" near me.  it sits adjacent to a General Aviation Airport and has a WW1 "French Farmhouse' Motif with WW1 Aviation memorabilia about.

My late Mother enjoyed several dinners there years ago.

On another note:  My own projects are progressing S-L-O-W-L-Y due to lack of 'Discretionary Spending Funds' for the last many months.I do have two Rifles almost together, now waiting for drill and tapping of the Forearm retainer Screw holes in the Barrel bottoms.  They are marked and 'center punched' but I need to buy the Taps and Tap Drill needed.

The other projects at my gunsmith have been on hold as his wife passed away this last April and he was out of the Shop for a few weeks taking care of that sad Task set.

Today it has been Cold Blustery and Sprinkling here (we do need the Rain).  

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Spring and Summer have come and gone, going out with a "Heat wave, then Rain" here in the San Fernando Valley.
Halloween is past, I let go of an incomplete Project my Father and I started Many Decades ago to a 'Good Home' for way less than was invested in it.  I will need to get the Velum drawings out for the machine work and make copies to send the New owner.
This was a Custom Three wheel vehicle with two wheels in front and Front Wheel drive from an Indian 'Chief' engine reworked to sit crosswise and feed a Volkswagen open half shaft Transmission driving MG1200 Front suspension, a Renault Dauphine Rack and Pinion steering box set up for Right hand Drive and fitted with an MG TF used Body.

The Purchaser got enough parts for about two and a half engines as part of the 'bargain' so he will have enough 'trading pieces' to get any needed Indian parts to complete the Trike project.

This also opens up a sheltered parking spot for my 1942 'jeep' close enough to my Garage to allow working upon it.

Progress is measured in small increments at my age.

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Can use , and do use .32 H&R Mag. load data . No sign of harm to brass and sure none to the RB action. Any How for what its worth , Thought you may want to see my progress. Thats me Slow But Sure! ,,DT

DT,
That is Coming along very well indeed.
As to the speed, my own "Projects" are also proceeding at a 'Snail's Pace" mostly due to my restricted Finances in retirement.
I have not had any "Work Calls' from My Union Dispatcher in several Months now.  The "Cost of Living" raise in My Social security, Military, and VA disability retirement payments was 0.3 Percent this year in spite of Taxes Increasing at over  2 percent and the "CoL' raises to Current Government Employees being 2.7 percent.

I now have a pair of Ruger Revolvers added to my  projects: one is a Single Six in .22 Cal that has been converted to a Long Barrel .25ACP Single Eight.  the other one is a Single Six in .32 H&R Magnum that I am investigating making into a 'convertible' between Colt and S&W family .32 Cal Cartridges.  

My rifle projects are Going Slow at my Gunsmith as he is 'buried' in more Work than the shop can handle for the Last Year.
Mine are of the "Back burner - low Budget" type ot keep my costs down.

A Home "putter Project" has been started in Converting a 1890 Winchester Pump to .25ACP and a Carbine Length (20 inch long) Barrel.
   I have a 'Bubba Cut' 1890 Barrel out to "John Taylor Machining" to be Fitted with a .25ACP "TJ" 1;14 twist Liner.
   I have already reworked the Front housing and Bolt to move the Firing Pin tip from "RF" to "CF" by re-drilling the bolt breech face and grinding off the original tip and drilling for a 5/64" (.078") Dowel Pin for a new firing pin tip.  The original Tip
 hole was filled with a steel rivet and filed Smooth after setting it.
   I have a New made replacement '.22WRF Tube Magazine that will take the .25ACP cartridges in the spring inner tube and have opened the Loading Port width to allow Inserting .25ACP cartridge through the side of the Outer sleeve tube.
   A Used "S-L-LR" Cartridge Lifter is to be reamed in bore enough to accept the .25ACP cartridge rim, keeping the Cartridge Length "Toggle' in the process so there should be little or no feeding problems.
   I have Stocks and other parts in my home 'parts stock' from supporting my two Win 1890s in .22WRF, one of which also is a WRF/WMR interchangeable Conversion.

The Best way to survive 'retirement ' is to keep busy.

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Some very interesting projects. The revolvers sound really nice. And the 1890 to 25ACP  very cool. Like you no hurry to finish the enjoyment for me is the working on them when I want to ! It's not a  job, but you are right a man needs a project to keep him going. Good to hear from you. ,,,DT

Spent a couple of hrs. testing the .32 LC Rolling block bench gun.  The 90 gr. heel bullet , wax/tallow lube, # 500 CCI , and  4.5 gr. Unique , in a WW case .915 oal. Off the bags @ 50 yd. gives one ragged hole 10 shot group. Cleaned the bore after every ten shots. Now to work on stock/metal finish work,,,,DT

Dusty, I've had 2 repro Rolling Blocks in .45-70 over the years but now only have this little beauty, a Martini Cadet rebored to .357 mag. It's a really nice single shot. Not a good looking American classic like yours though. Pretty work sir. You can see where I walked the poi into one hole but my target was only at 40 yds. But I'm curious about the bison herd. We did a cross country trip from NC to Cody 12 years ago and got to see Yellowstone and it's bison up close. They don't seem to be animals that would be easily moved if they didn't want to move.
