    Fullstocked Gemmer Trapdoor Rifle

    Looking for the Pard who had a fullstocked Gemmer style trapdoor for sale on here awhile back (or the person who bought it). I would like to get some photos of the rifle to show a gunsmith and have one built. Thanks!

    SOLD Gove Conversion Rolling Block in .45-60

    Just Google Gene Gordner Custom Rifles.

    SOLD Gove Conversion Rolling Block in .45-60

    I do not know who did the work. Got it this way. There is a Smith who does these. Pretty spendy.
  6. SOLD This is a neat rifle I have had for awhile, but want to build a custom trapdoor Gemmer style rifle, so I guess I can part with it. The rolling block action was expertly converted to the Gove underlever. The 25.5" barrel is repurposed, possibly from an original Winchester .45-60. Bore is EXCELLENT! Finish is mottled and has some small nicks here and there. Makes it look like an antique rifle. Has Gemmer style stocks and cleaning rod under barrel. Wood is in VG condition. Has a vernier tang sight, peep barrel sight and globe front sight. Comes with RCBS dies and 18 cases made from .45-70. This is a GREAT side match or Plainsman rifle. $950 SHIPPED right to your door. More pics available.

    Bulldog revolvers FS

    Great food down here, fer sure. I have sent antique revolvers to Europe using USPS. In the US, I just ship in Flat Rate box with insurance. Antique and obsolete cartridge is still legal and covered in USPS regs and insurance.

    If they are antiques, why not offer a shipping option? Would be interested in #2 if it locks up tight.

    Flipping through the channels after dinner...

    Not snowing, but cold! When I was 10 years old, I remember being mesmerized by the football game my Dad was watching. The 1967 "Ice Bowl" between Dallas and Green Bay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oe0XChUkWgU We had a black and white TV and I remember that the players steamed like livestock in the 12 degree temps. In 2008 I was at Lambeau Field to watch the Packers seal Detroit's 0-16 season. IIRC, it was 5 degrees at game time.

    43 caliber Remington Rolling Block Carbine- collectable?

    Forestock not right. May have been a two banded musketoon at one time. Does the stock show signs of a cleaning rod channel? In any event, not an $800 gun. Action worth $250-300. Buttstock maybe worth $30 with the heinous carving. Go in armed with some comps and see if you can get it for $350. But .43 Egyptian is a bear to load for. It can be done, but gets kind of spendy. You can find good Argentine military rollers (made by Remington, of course) for $5-600 all day on Gunbroker. And they are .43 Spanish, which is much easier. Hope this helps.
