Snap caps will figure that out pretty quick.
Does the front trigger articulate?
Yes. Really don't want to have fired one shot and have a rifle eject both the empty and the unfired round as one reloads for a follow-up.
Interesting rifle. Looks like a good shooter. Looks like a sxs Ruger No. 1.
I thought these models were extractors.
My understanding is non selective and depending on the force applied they extract or almost eject. Only "eject" when the barrels are tilted up the action opened with speed or force.
The rifle is beautiful and the initial accuracy test result looks good but I agree with @spike.t about the apparent logic of a falling block double. That being said, we all like different toys and I find it part of the fun on this forum.
Please give us a hunting report down the track.
Absolutely beautiful wood, outstanding!!
Not everything makes sence and I wanted something different that makes peoples eyebrows go up.
And this peace of machinery looks good and it works.
I have enjoyed the process of ordering it and following its making with the gunsmith.
It took some time but it was worth waiting.
Your rifle looks terrific and no doubt shoots the same.
Wow, beautiful rifle. I have always liked sxs, rifles, and falling blocks, it's the best of all worlds!
Being a No. 1 kind of guy, I think the rifle is brilliant!
But I also understand that it is clearly not for everyone...but what is?
Beautiful wood. Nice rifle.
I have been watching Bailey Bradshaw for some years.
He is a master of his craft.
I have thought for some time that I should commission a rifle soon...so I can enjoy it while I still can.
Then I put a deposit on a hunt...and buy a couple factory rifles...and.....
The making of the rifle is as in many cases a mix of craftsmen.
Barrels and action comes from Bailey Bradshaw.
Engraving is made by swedish engraver Stanley Stoltz.
Woodwork and everything else was made by master gunsmith P-O Stenmark from the small village Hjoggböle in the northern part of Sweden.
Report are coming.
Calle and all,
Check out his new design - the Rising Block:
I like it!
Very ingenious design and has some definite advantages.
I keep saying one day I will commission this young man to make me a rifle. Better do it before I am too old to enjoy it, as the time lag is for real!
