Contact Mike Bassett of Crosno's Gun Service about installing an improved version of the factory set trigger.  He's done all mine and it gives a lighter more reliable pull without all the creep.  And you're right the sporting rifles have vastly superior trigger pulls to millitary rifles.

Out to the range on this gloriously nice day. I tried several grease groove and paper patch loads. With the crummy Marbles tang sight and my aging eyes, it was a challenge. But this tapered PP bullet load showed the best potential. I'll be upgrading the tang sight soon!

Thanks. The tapered bullet seemed to do the best. I need more warm weather now  ;D

I finally got a decent rear sight. It's a Lee Shaver Soule mid range, with Hadley eye cup. In the next month or so I expect to have cataract surgery. After that I'll be able to see what the old rifle can do  :D

ndnchf,

I've enjoyed following along on your 44-77 journey. I've always liked Rolling Blocks and have owned several.

Best of luck on the surgery. Hope you'll be able to see a gnat's whiskers at 100 yards. (smiley face goes here)

Thanks Dave, I appreciate it. It certainly has been a journey with some twists and turns. But I'm very pleased with the end result. It is frustrating not being able to see the target or sights clearly. But from what I've been told, cataract surgery will really help.
