while the stalking rifle with the empty bolt SN 14482 is close to be in working order agains I bought the "combination gun" SN 15229 that missed the double lock completly
did it because it was advertised being one of the rare combination guns with a full rifled barrel.
don't worry about the lock, it can be made if you know it!

in the end the gunmaker who sell the estate only had pics and mixed them up. the gun was a common double gun in 0,70" but allways loving the challenge I take it also.






brass made by magtech 20 ga



similar but not the same to this later made double lock




meanwhile I start to restore the rest of the gun, what was brown once will be brown again




the butt plate with screws





the stock have a lot of history so I polish it up

the new double gun [Re: lancaster]
      #326683 - 01/04/19 04:50 AM

stock and steel restored, its enough now to shoot the gun with black powder again




actually I brown barrels and action exactly the same but the colour differs a little bit. maybe the reason is in different steel grades so it react different on the browning procedure.

That is marvellous work Lancaster to say the least - the browning turned out beautifully!
Is it your own recipe or is it store bought?
Another silly question I know but, did you get an engraver to fill in the in-lay with silver?

no rabbits before the double lock is made! nice gun but not complete.

the browning was made with a recipe I bought from a muzzle loader dealer. don't know if he mix this at home or simply relabel a product from the american market.
maybe this is a question of age - do I become old now? - but with the years I got a stronger taste for brown and prefer it today over the common black for steel.

thanks god the silver in-lays on the qun were fine. sometimes you see a gun were some of the silver is lost, dont look good and have to restore.
yes, I have two first class engraver who can do the job but thinking ist something you can learn.

Well sanded then carding between coats is very important to getting a nice fine finish in browning, instead of a rough one.
You hit it dead centre!

the stalking rifle is ready, old plan was to have time until autumn but now it have to be ready until saturday. the push piece came back from the engraver yesterday. today in a total hurry after making some cartridges I fired the rifle to prove it.





six paper and one metall case cartridge at 35 meter offhand. suprisingly the double set trigger don't work anymore after the first shoot. without its much harder to fire the rifle so I think with more time and the set trigger the group would have been much better. anyway, it was for see the rifle is in working condition before it goes back home tommorow.






this is not a self cocking action what makes sense for a stalking rifle and was 150 years ahead of its time. you cock and decock with the push piece what goes very easy and silent.
