    Anyone have experience with these?
    I'm intrigued and looking for something a little different in 22lr.

    Have one in 45 LC.. they are nice.. I imagine 22 lr would be one hell of a nice kids (No matter size or age) gun. They are scaled down in size from the original so they are real easy to handle. Never had a complaint, always went boom.. The design is one of the best, and a lot cheaper to shoot than 45/70. One can pretend to be buffalo hunting on the plains of the old west on the cheap. :)

    Guys, please. You're killing me here, i don't need anything else on my "gotta gotta have it, can't live without it" list.
    I didn't know they came in 45 colt too...
    I'll inform the wife an argument is coming.

    In all honesty it is not even noticeable, Even though the rifle is scaled down there is still alot of metal & wood to eat up the recoil. And to another nice thing the rifle
    just has a nice feel. Hey if you are down in the Indianapolis area in the next few weeks... I will let you test it out..

    My thoughts too.
    Don't look at the manufacture's sight. I want one in 30-30 and 22 hornet, or 38-55. On the other hand a 357 reamed to max would be great.

    i bought mine when a local wholesaler dropped the Charles daley line of imports, at close out I paid 575.00 for the little sharps. I took the tang sight off and put a modified Williams receiver sight on it. I shoot a 200 gr jacketed bullet at 1600 fps for hunting and a 200 gr cast bullet at 1200 fps for target. top group at 50 yards is my finial hunting load, bottom group was runner up.

    Does anyone know the "strength" these rifles are thought to have? Can the 357 be reamed to 357 max, the 45 colt reamed to 454 casull or 460 s&w and so on? Obviously it would be physically possible but i'm interested if anyone thinks the action will survive 50k psi.
    Not that i would want to do it :evil:.

    I don,t think I would go over 28- 30 thousand psi. my hunting load for the 44-40 are 20-22 thousand psi and show no pressure signs at all and the fired case fall into the chamber with no resistence at all.
