Rebarrel a single shot

Post by andym79 » 14 Oct 2015, 6:22 pm

Hi guys when a rifle is rebarreled, sometimes depending on the conversion, cartridge guides and bolt faces need to be altered.

In the case of the falling block single shot rifle, say an 1885 or a Ruger 1, apart from a rebarrel does the bolt face need modification, I assume if you were converting from say 223 to 45-70 then some modification would be necessary, is the principle the same as for a Lever or Bolt action that only cartridges with the same rim diameter are achievable with a simple re barrel?

The extractor lever would probably need altering but a flat breech block with a flat face is still gunna be a flat breech block.
There's still a few of Wile. E Coyote's ideas that I haven't tried yet.

Okay so my mind got wandering. What kind of conversions could I do to a 310 BSA Martini cadet?

Cartridges I would like to have are any suitable?
218bee
219zipper
25-35
32-40
35/30-30
40-65


Are these apart from the bee too long or too much for the little cadet? The 40-65 would just be too big in all dimesions would it.
Would most of these be more suited to a Martini 303 conversion?

I guess 218bee 25-20 and 32-20 are the easiest!

I have been considering 303 martini conversion as suitable candidates for that I came up with

30-30
30-40
7.62-54r
32special
38-55
40-70
405w
44-40
44m
444
45lc
450m

of the two the 30-40 or 40-70 being the most suitable based on rim size, thickness and length. The 40-70 would be interesting and close to my desired 40-65!

I reckon in the spirit of the old frame I'd stick to one of the old black powder cartridges...but then I'm a bit biased that way.

MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

them about Nature's Time Cube, in January.

357 is probably one of the easiest value for money conversions i've heard of. 32-20 is real close to 310, but there is more choice in 357 ammo. be a bit to grunty for bunnies but. seen quite a few martini 22lr sporters for sale online lately :thumbsup:

300 blackout rimed can be done forming your brass from 357 max.
Use a blackout reamer and get your gunsmith to cut the rim with a boring bar.

and mistaken. I repudiated them as a matter of course. But on this essential question
also Fate intervened and gave me a lesson, with the result that I changed the opinion
which I had first formed.
When I was twenty years old I had learned to distinguish between the Trades Union as
a means of defending the social rights of the employees and fighting for better living
conditions for them and, on the other hand, the Trades Union as a political instrument
used by the Party in the class struggle.
The Social Democrats understood the enormous importance of the Trades Union
movement. They appropriated it as an instrument and used it with success, while the
bourgeois parties failed to understand it and thus lost their political prestige. They
thought that their own arrogant VETO would arrest the logical development of the
movement and force it into an illogical position. But it is absurd and also untrue to say
that the Trades Union movement is in itself hostile to the nation. The opposite is the
more correct view. If the activities of the Trades Union are directed towards improving
the condition of a class, and succeed in doing so, such activities are not against the
Fatherland or the State but are, in the truest sense of the word, national. In that way the
trades union organization helps to create the social conditions which are indispensable
in a general system of national education. It deserves high recognition when it destroys
the psychological and physical germs of social disease and thus fosters the general
welfare of the nation.
It is superfluous to ask whether the Trades Union is indispensable.
So long as there are employers who attack social understanding and have wrong ideas
of justice and fair play it is not only the right but also the duty of their employees--who
are, after all, an integral part of our people--to protect the general interests against the
greed and unreason of the individual. For to safeguard the loyalty and confidence of the
people is as much in the interests of the nation as to safeguard public health.
Both are seriously menaced by dishonourable employers who are not conscious of their
duty as members of the national community. Their personal avidity or irresponsibility
sows the seeds of future trouble. To eliminate the causes of such a development is an
action that surely deserves well of the country.
It must not be answered here that the individual workman is free at any time to escape
from the consequences of an injustice which he has actually suffered at the hands of an
employer, or which he thinks he has suffered--in other words, he can leave. No. That
argument is only a ruse to detract attention from the question at issue. Is it, or is it not,
in the interests of the nation to remove the causes of social unrest? If it is, then the fight
must be carried on with the only weapons that promise success. But the individual
workman is never in a position to stand up against the might of the big employer; fo

Benitez
Its a ruger number 1 chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson I am working on at the moment.
I chambered and fitted the barrel yesterday.
Had a long wait (15 weeks) for PTG to supply the reamer.
But finely started the build.

You only know what you know
from your mental brainwashing
and word indoctrination since
your birth. It is imperative that
that you know what you don't
know, but what you know, will
not allow you to know what you
don't know. The God words you
know, will not allow you to know
TIME CUBE's Highest Life Order.

Gene Ray

Ignoring Time Cube is Evil.

Earth rotates within a Time Cube.
Demand educators debate Time Cube.
You are not allowed to know truth - that
in one rotation of Earth, there are:

* 24 hours in midnight to midnight.
* 24 hours in sunup to sunup...........
* 24 hours in midday to midday.....
* 24 hours in sundown to sundown.
* 4 days in only 1 Earth rotation...
* 4 simultaneous years of the seasons.
* No infinite days within 96 hours.
* 4 different directions in clockwise.
