Woldan, great little project rifle in a ripper cartridge.

Very interesting kit, something you can't buy anymore these days which is a pity.

Imagine how much fun it would be for a young boy to get a present like that at Christmas.


Well done.


Matt.

No, a new cartridge I have created, case almost four (4) inches long ie 96 mm, and unique .39 calibre. Called the .39x96 Nitro Express. I know a confusion of terms of imperial and metric systems. Or the .39 Creedmoor. But even though a Creedmoor, for the first time, not duplicating or copying a better cartridge existing already for a hundred years.

I wonder if those kits were really aimed at guntrade Market. In the UK many gunsmiths would buy in semi finished guns and finish them with their own brand on the barrel. You still find these Santa Barbara type mausers labelled John Dickson etc etc.

Indeed i have a Rigby that looks very similar.
