The Barracks / Re: Remington split breech carbine

I recently got an Eras Gone mold for the Smith carbine bullet. So I loaded some up in the .56-50s to try in the split breech. The do look nice  ;D

Drydock,

Thanks for posting that. Nothing I didn't already know but I enjoyed watching it none-the-less.

Can anyone point me in the direction of exploded view drawings of a Colt Lightning Slide Action Medium Frame carbine in .32-20, and a Joslyn M1862 carbine in .52 rimfire?

A friend of mine has come into possession of these, and they have seen some rough use and are missing various parts.  He is a skilled machinist and accomplished hobby gunsmith, so he'll be able to make new parts if he can only see what they should look like and get some critical dimensions.

If any of You own one of the above carbines and would be willing to take it apart and photograph and measure the parts, that would also be most helpful.

Thanks, Slim. I was going to use my 30-30, but due to my usual procrastination, I find myself without enough proper bullets for it, and no mold. Was going to try and use some 180 grain rn from a Lee mold, but...the nose is too long to feed through the action. But I do have a couple hundred bullets for the 38-55, and a set of dies I've had for 20 years, and never used. Only have 60 cases for it, but I've got a couple hundred once fired 30-30 cases someone gave me I can re-size.

Thanks, those look good but in the posted photos it looks like the trigger cutout area is the same in the front and the back and the way the holsters are shown on the cartridge belts- they look like they ride a lot higher.  Hope I explained it right.

Having some iced tea, now.

It is a 1893 Marlin in .38-55 w/ 26" barrel. The 250gr bullet is probably going 1400 fps. I think I raised the sight all the way and walked it in. Those targets are at least 36" tall.

Sunshine and 76 here, high supposed to be 92. Biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Extra chunky gravy, won't have to strain it to find the sausage!

Slim, didn't you use a Win 94 in 38-55 at the muster a year or two ago? How'd it do for the 300 yard gong? What I'm reading online says if I sight it 1 1/2" high at 100, it'll drop something like 75 inches at 300! Don't think the standard barrel mounted sight will get me that much elevation.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and iced tea are ready.

Church security duty today.

'Tis 74 and sunny. Less Humidity. High of 87.
