No, no I am on a well deserve break from work..now is a great time to do all the work in and around the house ...I need to get my house in tip top shape if the promised visit from a German friend and his wife comes to South Africa again to join me in a Black powder hunt...now I avail my time with building projects in and around the house ..next week will find me working on my rifle building project again...HWL, will you see if there is a possibility of getting brass for the 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser ??? It will be much appreciated..Don't you have to teach the children,... or is the school closed?
Or do you teach them to become a gunsmith?
The set trigger was removed by a previous owner. The spring and pins are there so if I could obtain the set trigger it could be easily installed. I was unaware of the MS collectors site- possibly that would have a lead to a replacement set trigger.
Yes, yes, I agree though it is only a .458 caliber , the open sights might just be functional enough to ambush a buffalo or two..in the book The Hunting Imperative written by one of the greatest hunters of our times, Richard Harland he told the story of a man who killed buffalo with a traditional spear by tracking old lone Dagga boys buffalo bulls where they sleep , stalk up to them and thrust the spear into the buffalo`s heart killing the buffalo..this man was the provider of meat for his family and his community..I think this rifle might be just what the doctor ordered to ambush a Dagga boy laying down to sleep..I like it and think it is very unique! Time to slay some critters
