If you have another mold for the 33 winchester hiding out anywhere I am desperately needing one. 
Gunsmithing / H&R Handi rifle tang sight
« Last post by Reverend P. Babcock Chase on September 29, 2023, 10:51:23 PM »
Howdy Fellers,

I done bought me the Handi rifle in .357. My plan is to use it for cowboy long range pistol caliber. I haven't shot it yet, but I'm wondering how folks mount a tang sight on these things. I may not need one, but I thought I'd try to learn from some of the more experienced H&R owners here. I've seen some recommendations for mounting inserts in the stock wrist to screw the sight base into. This seems a bit more elegant than just using a couple of wood screws. 

By the way, What sight should I be looking for?

Any ideas would be appreciated,
Rev. Chase

I hear there's a good market for kidneys. . . .

Thanks, Cliff. I haven't used antler so I can't compare. I do like this one for burnishing large areas, though. It's easy to hold and you can run it around in any direction easily. I've been using the polished, rounded edge of piece of mahogany. I think this will get the job done faster. You can really bear down on it if you like but it doesn't seem to need that. I'll have to make something soon that needs the back burnished to know for sure.

Rita fell at Drs office yesterday, she \'s ok and there was plenty of help to get her up.  Did some testing today, no results yet, she's safe in the house till Tuesday of next week.

Very interesting tool Marshal. I always use a piece of deer antler but this seems like a great tool for larger areas.

That's a good tip. I've often wondered how the blue stuff would work but haven't had the occasion to try it. I have successfully removed adhesives with lighter fluid with good success, too.

While I'm not a leather worker close to those who post on here, I have had some  experience with around-the-house solvents. ::) ::)  I might suggest a product called "Goof Off".  I have found it removes many adhesives and hasn't damaged anything I've used it on.  I've made many OOPS that it has helped me recover from.  I just don't know if I've ever tried it on leather, so proceed with caution.

I bought one some time ago.  Works well with my round punches.  Not so much with my ovals 😂😂😂
