    Default Building your own Double Rifle

    As an off shoot of the previous 557 post, has anyone on this board actually built there own double rifle. Through another board's classified section I was lucky (or unlucky depending on how you view this) to aquire four .577 barrels and reamers. I also purchased a donor gun and some brass and bullets. My .577 project is going to become a reality. I hope it doesn't become a nightmare.

    I also picked up a 500NE tube as well as a 577 tube from that sale. But I'm going to do a Ruger #1 for each of them. Now to find donor rifles for the conversions.

    Did you purchase a contoured tube or a blank? I got two Obermeyer (?) and two Krieger barrels. If yours are blanks, what are your plans for contouring them?

    Look at NE and the single shot 577 NE thread. AussieSteve is going to have his rifle cloned I think. Sights are going to be different. Mine is a blank.
