    Final Assembly. Barrel is in, retainer bolt tightened with a well fitting screwdriver. I checked the lever, it snaps over center and stays closed just like new. A good fit overall. When these loosen up to the point that the fall open, its time for new pins....again, the factory fix was new pins and an over center spring and plunger added to the lever. A rare fix since these were very inexpensive rifles and few could afford to ship them back for repairs.

    The right profile.


    Nice steel buttplate to cover and protect the pretty walnut.

    Right action panel and a view of the original forend that was salvaged.


    A Squirrels eye view of the working end of the rifle...

    Overview of the left profile.

    Another look at that pretty new/old walnut buttstock.

    Markings and a view of the all original action. Even the original spring loaded extractor retains functionality. I didn't get any misfires on the original tests and extraction was positive, so, except for the new action pins, buttstock and buttplate and sights, this one is as close to original as I could keep it. That's fine with me.

    A closer look at the left action panel and its action screws...how these got thru nearly 100 years with out being buggered is beyond me.

    Barrel and sights.

    From the underside.

    Here is the slight failure of the stock we discussed above...a small chip raised up, but still tight, just at the toe of the lower tang. It lifted in the time between final wood finish and installation of the blued action. I left it alone, its plenty tight and I won't be prying it out to glue and refinish the entire buttstock.

    One more shot of the repaired forend. Two cracks opened, cleaned, glued and two tear outs from sling swivel screws repaired with walnut plugs.

    Bronze bore brush, hopes 9, patches till clean. This bore is dark but very serviceable so it won't come spotlessly clean no matter what ya do, after all, its prolly 100 years old.

    Test fire completed.
    Here's the target work with CB Shorts first at 10 yards and dead center, then Federal Target Auto, a bit low and left and about as good as I can do with such thin sights.
