I sent you an email about a week ago. Did you get it? Should I resend it?

    Nononsense,

    What is the rifle in the second picture of you signature line? What is it chambered in? Did you build it? I really like it and would like more info on it.

    Thanks
    Chet

    What's the purpose/benefit of the cylinder/block under the forearm of both the AR type rifles you posted in nyforester's post?

    I just noticed that you edited one of my link on my post to {Elsewhere}. I didn't think I did any posting violation, creating any conflict of interest, or that the other forum reference is competing with GB. In fact the other forum makes plenty of posts/threads recommendations to check out GB's auction site.

    Again, I am just trying to better understand the rationale behind it so I can do a better job next time were mods do not have to police and edit my posts.

    Please advise. Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.

    V/R

    What is that rifle you keep displaying at the bottom of your pages. I really like the looks of it.

    I bought a Ruger #1 and it sort of reminds me of it...

    You need to start putting titles in your sig line so us normal mortals know what kind of amazing looking toys you are showing off.

    Your current pick looks like something of the Whisper variety.



    EDIT:

    Thank you. Very interesting.

    I read a couple of months ago that you were testing some Vortex scopes I was wondering how these scopes performed? Where are they built? I would like to know more about these scopes.

    You locked my post. Thats fine but do you have a phone number to call gunbroker.com as you suggested in your post. I can't find one. I am sorry this is not the place to find the answer as you said but how would I know that based on the name of these forums. I did try to re-register but my email address is the only one I have so I couldn't re-register. I tried help, customer service and reply, all the site did was go to the log on/register page. If you folks don't know how to get them I sure don't! Either way I missed a good rifle today. Thaks for your input. Folks sure aren't as friendly as they used to be.

    Hi;
    You mentioned a "stoney Point Tool." on another thread. I couldn't find it on the Midway site. What exactly does this device do? Where can I get one?
    Thanks, Rusty.

    robert574,

    It should remind you of the Ruger #1 since it is the predecessor.

    That rifle is a Farquharsen single shot drop block action. These are a classic, strong action, somewhat rare and very expensive when you find a real one. This is a detail of another example:

    Best.

    Boy that is a beautiful piece of workmanship, that is seldom found today in big manufacturing. There are only some who can compete with that.

    Big Manufacturing is busy taking care of the needs of the millions of general hunters and shooters around the world. Without them we wouldn't have the Remingtons, Winchesters, Savages, Howas and all of the other affordable, accurate rifles. Occasionally, they will demonstrate the older classic techniques that they used to practice before the world changed but those times are rare.

    But if you drop down a tier size-wise, you still find high quality fit and finish combined with high quality materials from some of these makers.

    Ballard Rifle and Cartridge Co.

    Dakota Arms (before the investment group idiot took over)

    Cooper Arms

    Mauser Waffen

    Waffenfabrik Hein

    Empire Rifles

    Gottfried Prechtl

    Klett Arms

    And the list gets longer when you add in the custom gunmakers both here in the States and in Europe. If you take a look at Hallowell Co., they usually have some of the better examples of both custom and semi-custom finer rifles.

    Best.
