Army experimental Springfield 1903 bolt action rifle in a bullpup configuration.
Looks like something from the "Planet of the Apes' movies

Hello, I live in CT. And I am in the process of rescuing a Start 1858 carbine from the amnesty gun give back program. This rifle would have fetched a $30 dollar gift card to Dunkin Donuts. Not looking for value but maybe dating and where it may have been issued. It has a 5 digit serial #. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yesterday I did do that just that and fired  15 shots through the Sharps carbine in my back yard range.
Lots of smoke and fire.
held center
hit all around center
Oh well!!
If you manipulate the statistics properly and average the shots, they become bullseyes!  :)

The Winchester Model 1886 / Re: Some 1886 set trigger questions.
« Last post by larryo1 on November 25, 2021, 05:28:48 PM »
Several years ago, I did work on an '86 that had set triggers.  I like to tore out what hair i had getting it to work properly but got it with the help of a book that the title of was "THE WINCHESTER 1873 Handbook". Now I have no  idea if that book is still around but it was a good one and all the drawings were to scale.  That would be a good source of information if you so desire.  Also that spring that you asked about is called a "CARRIER SPRING" so leave it alone!  I have 3 '86's and all have that spring and its function is self explanatory.  Hope this helps.

Made it through the Early dinner on Sat.  Made it to Oreegone!  Just had our Traditional Toast to those who can no longer attend our feast (a dram of Grande Mariner all around).

About ready to carve the bird.


Now my hunt and peck with fat thumbs on my cell phone is giving out!  Enjoy everyone!!!
