Re: Favorite Game/Gun Picture - 2021 Hunting Season Stanton Hillis 10/17/21 09:44 PM
That's a nice looking Uggie, Greg. The lighting enhances the engraving and the case color. Great pic.

Can't wait to get my two 16s back from the 'smith. Minor stuff, but I miss them.

Re: Assistance with Proof marks Drew Hause 10/17/21 12:51 PM
The CIP site confirms that 850 BAR = 12,328 PSI by crushers (LUP) is actually 960 BAR = 13,924 PSI by transducers (13% higher), and adds MPa to the confusion frown
“These cartridges, if they are to be fired from standard proof shotguns (ie those proved to 960 bar [13,924 psi transducer] or, previously, 850 bar [crusher]), or magnum proof shotguns (ie those proved to 1370 bar [19,870 psi transducer] or, previously, 1200 bar [crusher]) must not exceed the maximum admissible service pressure of 74 MPa (new units “megapascals”, in place of the old 740 bar) specified by the CIP and measured by means of a piezo-electric transducer.”

Stan,
You might try Cecil Freddie or Robert Watts for a piece of wood. I have a stash of black walnut fore blanks as well but not near the number that those guys have. Matching black is easier than matching English in my opinion. Best of luck with it.

Re: Old French 16 gauge double. Ted Schefelbein 10/17/21 02:15 AM
Well, your files were way too big, or, corrupt, and I only took the time to manipulate this one. But, it will get us started:

[Linked Image from jpgbox.com]

This action was used all over France and Belgium for probably 100+ years. It was sold, in the white, as barreled actions to gunmakers all over France and Belgium. I have never figured out exactly who produced it, but, it is common as empty beer cans, and used for up to about mid grade continental guns. Very rarely, it is fitted with ejectors. I have never seen this action with a single trigger, but, I would imagine they are out there. Your gun is not rare, or, terribly valuable, except as a family heirloom, perhaps, but, these are typically wonderful hunting implements. Watch for short chambers and tight bores and chokes. It is probably time for a good gunsmith to strip, clean, and lubricate the old gun, unless you don’t plan on using it. That, would be a shame, as it appears to be a great little bird gun, from what I can see. Your pictures weren’t really clear enough for me to see the proof marks, and describe to you what they are telling us. A better photo of the action flats would help. Crown over PT is indicative of proof with power T, post 1900, and is a stout level of proof indeed. St. Etienne was where most French guns were proofed.

Best of luck with it. If you have any specific questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Best,
Ted

Thanks for posting my pics Ted!

Stan, as you can see, the Greener style lever work pictured here shows the bent safety bar and the short axle on the spindle….these pictures should explain why that breech pin is located off-center.

Re: Unusual Side Lever KDGJ 10/16/21 11:31 PM
It is the Dougall lockfast. A strong lock-up at the time, but a little cumbersome to us and eventually replaced. Here's a write-up Lockfast.

Re: Lever to the right keith 10/16/21 11:31 PM
For most doubles, the lever is moved to the right to open the gun, and it returns back left toward center when it is closed. As the bolting surfaces wear, the lever then gradually moves further left, and eventually may move left of center.

The point where it stops can also vary somewhat due to how easily or sharply the gun is closed. And a weak top lever return spring can also affect where it stops. For the end of the top lever to stop a full inch right of center, as you mentioned, seems awfully extreme, and could indicate that someone peened or welded the bolting surfaces to make the gun appear not worn.

Some earlier Syracuse Lefever shotguns, referred to as "pivot lever" guns, have a different bolting system, and the top lever always returns to center. These guns had a compensating screw to take up wear and keep the bolting tight. Later models simply self-adjust by the process of the lever gradually moving further towards the left as wear occurs.

Re: Sterling - Turkish Shotshell Ammo ellenbr 10/16/21 03:16 PM
Along the lines of cartridges, I have been sourcing some 32 bore cartridges such as Rio, Fiocchi, Federal. On the various websites, Federal is noted as being >>Made in the USA<< but when the boxes arrived, they are stamped >>Made in Italy<< and they are for the most part one in the same as Fiocchi, with Federal roll stamped on the sides.

But considering the brass plated heads, what dictates just how long it is to be???

The Rio cartridges are 0.320" in length


whilst the Fiocchi cartridges are 0.280" in length.

I haven't had any issue with the Rio or the Federals but the Fiocchis have had a few misfires? The shorter brass head seems to drop just slightly deeper in the chamber but the Federal & Fiocchi have the same length brass head.

Serbus,

Raimey
