I worked on my 1895 45-70 guide gun most of the day yesterday. I stripped it an smoothed up the parts inside an done a trigger job on it with some polishing useing 1200 grit ,fine 600g small stone ,triggers still alittle heavy with no creep after it hits the wall. I don,t want a lever gun to light of trigger so changed no springs .i always wanted a single shot so made one as I removed the tube ,forend an made my own forend. I,m still working on the forend fit in the reciever with nothing touching the barrel. I like a free floating barrel on my guns for accuracy. Be a single shot now, I can shoot any bullet,seating depth I want.this little guns accurate an as I was sighting it in at 25yd then I shot 3 shots in 7/16 of a inch at 50yds with 405g cast performance bullets using my little Nikon African 1x4 scope on it . scopes just for testing loads. Hope to get it done today as I have some goodies coming from midway to make better cast hand loads. I have a Redding profile crimping die,Lyman m die to replace a couple of my Rcbs dies for these cast bullets.
