The Pedersoli sights I've seen don't have that flat piece under the glove.

BROW / Need help to identify maker of globe front sight
« Last post by Boone May on Today at 05:36:51 PM »
I bought a used Shiloh Model 1874 and it came with nice globe front sight with spirit level.  No extra sight inserts unfortunately.
I wanted to change out the sight insert as I don't like the one in it now.  I ordered some from Montana Vintage Arms (MVA) thinking they are all the same...NOT!  The MVA inserts don't fit. 

I need help to identify the maker of this sight so I can order the proper inserts.  It's not MVA and it doesn't look like C. Sharps either from what I can tell.  I suspect that it might Italian or Ukrainian.  Any ideas?

My barreled action with the new barrel arrived today. This is 50-95. Barrel slugs at 0.512 with a 1/32 twist. Barrel install and finish are well done. As well as the winchester stamping and caliber (in the correct spot). Hand guard fits and matches up to the nose cap. I was worried about this. 

 Barrel is in the white so now onto the bluing side of things. I am going to redo all the parts in a rust blue.

So this will close the chapter/thread on this part of my rifle redo. Ill follow up on my loads in my "saga thread".

I just uploaded a new video about how to expand the diameter of a cast bullet. This can be really handy for testing out an antique gun before ordering a custom mold. In the video I expand a .452" diameter 255gr bullet to .459". The process is the same for any bullet. All you really need is a sizing die that is the size you want the bullet expanded to.

Ran across this meme.
As an avid rail fan, and a lifetime of listening to stories, I thought the allegory was spot on.

And from the living room over the too loud TV while you are wearing headphones jamming on some Shooter Jennings or Hank the III. ;D   Not going to lie to you, the son and grandson are awful good. ;)

You were pretty as can be, sitting in the front seat
Looking at me, telling me you love me
And you're happy to be with me on the 4th of July
We sang Stranglehold 'til the stereo
Couldn't take no more of that rock and roll
So we put on a little George Jones and just sang along

Album name is a little crude but spot on.

We'll see 85  with 90% rain
Your work is always stunning.
Thanks, Slim.

Weather Guru says we're looking at a record breaker Thursday, 100+ degrees.
Supposed to be 95 here.
