Shows you don’t need a lathe, mill, bandsaw, MIG welder, belt sander, drill press, buffer, surface grinder, arbor press, bench grinder, heat treat furnace, etc etc etc to build a rifle! But I use them anyhow.  ;D
But you must be well acquainted with a file and a forge.

I think the guy doing the work is Wallace Gussler.  Excuse the spelling.
The Shootin' Range / Re: Evens 44 long
« Last post by NickD on Today at 07:37:03 AM »
I have had an Evans 44 long for around 6 years and shoot it reasonably regularly. Whilst my eyes are not as sharp as they were I do find that the Evans is an incredibly accurate rifle and above all fun to shoot. In our small club here in the U.K. we have around 7 Evans distributed between members and these are used on a regular basis. We are still hopeful that the book on the Evans authored by Scott Jamieson will get printed.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are ready.

'Tis 60 and overcast. "Not as warm. Mostly cloudy. A chance of showers in the morning. Highs in the middle 70s. Northeast wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 40 percent."

I will say that the lack of "belt hooks" on the fatigue uniform jacket is overly evident in the sadly sagging Mills belt, being pulled down both by the wieght of the cartridges and the holstered pistol!

I'm already working on remedying that!  (So far as I can determine, the original jackets did not have such refinements (if only because the fatigue uniform would not normally be worn with any waist belt, but obviously ...when worn as field dress with a holstered revolver ... such hooks would be desirable.)

The home nurse and the home PT released me today. They asked my how I was doing, I got down, sat on the floor and got back up with one hand, they decided I didn't need them any more. ;D

Over 65 get a free gym membership, that way wife and I can go
STORM / Re: New Faux Ivory grips

Does the AZ grips have grain like some real ivory?

No grain. I don't know if their heavily aged styles show grain or not.  My Tru-Ivory grips show grain but they are out of business.  There is another guy on ebay from whom I've bought some fake ivory 1911 grips that do have some grain and are reminiscent of the Tru-Ivory, but unfortunately that guy makes stuff for Rugers only but not Colt style.
