Well like many who have asked who has shot one and searched for a review here is my first cut from the first range session. I picked up one of their 45/70 from William Larkin & Moore in Scotsdale AZ. It has some decent turkish walnut, checkering is very even and well executed, the wood to metal fit is very good. Has a tasteful amount of scroll engraving and a color case finish on the receiver. The blueing is high gloss and very well done. Rifle weights 7LBS, 15 1/8 LOP and is balanced well. The sights are the fiber optic type and very visible. I would perfer a nice small white bead but will need to work on that. It also came with a mount for a reflex sight. (I will give that a try next range session) It was regulated with Hornaday leverevolution ammo. The conditions at the range were windy 10-20mph but coming straight into the shooters faces. I was having a decent day at the range. I used the 6in peel and stick shhot and see targets. The hornaday ammo shot well. 2in center to center at 50. I also tried federal fusion 300gr speer, Federal 300gr trophy bonded bearclaw. These both were around 4 1/2 in. But were 175-200fps slower than what is is regulated for. I also took some reloads out that work in a SIACE 45/70 double. The 400r hawk shot well at 3 inches center to center, should be able to get down to around 2in with a little more speed. The 400gr CEB solids and 405 rem bullets were around 3 1/2 in so will need to bump the speed up for these also. For a first range session I was very pleased. Have a base line to work from want to concentrate on the 400gr hawk and CED solids. So far I am happy with the rifle and consider it a decent purchase. Will keep you all informed of progress and impressions as I spend more time at the range.
