A Gemmer! I LOVE those things. I was eyeing a barreled action online to make one of those, but I hesitated too long. Nice job!

Beautiful rifle ... all it needs is a ramrod -er- wiping rod to be complete.

Well, I didn't want to overwhelm the site with a bunch of boring pics.

Don't look too close at the inletting I struggle with the real close lines. Pictures from a distance are best and if I can keep the gun moving while ya look at it that helps a lot too. But I'm trying......

Personally, I think it's a mistake to try for an exact fit when inletting. The different materials expand and contract at different rates with temperature changes plus wood absorbs water to a degree which makes it expand. When hung above a fireplace for decoration, the wood dries out, shrinks, and cracks.
Very close tolerances exacerbate any problems.

Well it is nice to see you had all those photos ready to go in case we asked.

Way beyond this nimrod.
45/70 will it be loaded as a 45/70, that is 70 grains of black.

The full length pics were already saved but I went and took more of the nose cap and lock. With a cell phone it only takes a few minutes to take pics, send them to email, upload to photobucket.com and then copy them to forum. When I can copy directly from my brain to the internet then virtual ubiquity and pansophical awareness will be achieved and the ethereal universe will be mine, MINE I SAY! BWAAAHAHAHAHA!!

My load uses 62 gr. of FFg and a 500 gr. cast boolit (.45-62-500). I believe the original load was .45-70-405

Must kick like a Missouri mule.

The extra 95 grains of lead take up the space with the reduced powder charge or it doesn't matter? Hear a lot about "air space" with BP loads, can't figure out why as it makes no difference in smokeless.
