Carleton Rifle Build
      #341265 - 21/05/20 10:03 AM

The Carleton underhammer is know for it's sliding hammer.

Well, I have 6 fast twist Big Bore blanks [1-58, 4-62s, 1-69] that need to be finished. Had them too long, time to do something with them.

I have a flock of underhammers .32-7ga. Thought I would try something even more different.

The Carleton is a slam fire, triger holds the bolt back. Pull the trigger Slam, Blam!

The brass receiver is milled for the hammer.

Quick change barrel system is done.

Hammer is coil spring fired, not the trigger guard.[nearly done.]

The slide in trigger guard and trigger need to be made.

I have several ideas for a half cock, but haven't decided yet.[simple is best]

Oh, wood.....I have some rough sawed.

Will update progress, not ready for pictures.

Interesting indeed. The barrel would need enough weight so the hammer did not jar it even though it appears a very short throw.
Yes- interesting.

Daryl, mine is a larger version. The picture just shows the idea.

Mine is much more robust!

I use a large bolt thru the stock, just in case you need a club or a boat oar!

Had to make a collar stop for the mill. Ground a cutter and made a holder.

The brass cut easy for the trigger guard to fit into.

A .69 pistol would be rather interesting. I use a .682" Pedersoli mould for mine (looks like Lyman blocks) that cast 482gr. RB's in pure lead for my sporting rifle.
I also have a 15 bore mould (.677") by Tanner Moulds that casts around 466gr. in pure and 445gr. in old WW.

Daryl, it's more of a Low Wall receiver design. But once the rifle is done, then it may be time for a pistol!

I understand under-hammer rifles make good oars.

Especially with 3/8" stock bolts!

Don't forget a good club, also!
