 :)  River City John  :D

I ain't Ned.  Didn't stay inna Holiday Inn Express (That I Admit To), but:  I don't like Uberti.  At all.  Uberti Cap Guns are pretty.  Well Marked.  But very poorly built.  Uberti have had a Major Flaw since day one and have never corrected it, which makes their Cap Gun a Royal PITA to set up for CAS.  Yuck

HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL

I should add that my Roller is the third on in the picture,  the top two are built on 73 Trapdoor actions(not my work, and I'm not sure of the maker), and the 4th and sixth were  built by John Bergmann on third Allin conversion actions( some of the nicest work I'm aware of.). The Sharps is an older Pedersoli Gemmer 45-70, and is a fine shooting rifle.
 the bottom is my original frontier Spencer conversion, relined by Robert Hoyt in 56-50 CF.  ( likewise has killed at least two bison in this century)  Anyone wondering about the killing ability of a Spencer should know that the 385 grain boolet will completely penetrate a 1400 pound buffalo cow!  On Whitetail deer into the left shoulder and out the right hip!  Just need to be mindful to keep your shots within 125 yards which is really all I'm comfortable with open sights anyways.
 oops I probably just drifted this thread some....

Yes, I built it back in 2005,  original 1869 Remington action, 34" Green Mountain barrel. Had Lee Shaver chamber it in 50-70.   Did the wood work utilizing a "Jim Bridger" Hawken stock blank from Track of the Wolf.  It sure shoots well,  a bit on the heavy side when carrying it for deer hunting, but will kill a bison (and has)  ;)
 I'll have to take a few more pics and post them.  but here's a bunch of nice Gemmer buffalo guns at one of our annual September buffalo match.

Big Goose - that is my dream Gemmer, a 50-70 rolling block. Please post a few more photos. Did you build it? Details?

Thanks 😊

Howdy all.
   Here's a pic of my Gemmer style rolling block. Not a carbine , rather its a 34" barrel 50-70 buffalo gun
