Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Bitten by the Rolling Block bug.........

After my $$ situation improves, I might consider the Uberti 1871 rolling block in .45-70, with vernier sights of course.......

Good choice, for slow deliberate shooting.

When I was a youngster I always wanted a falling block action. Not a big enough fan of Ruger's to have ever bought one. Then I started into assault weapons & it's seems to suit me better.

It would be a good one. I have a .45-70 Sharps made by Pedersoli. It have a Vernier rear sight and a hooded peep sight on the front.

Uberti uses Pedersoli barrels on their Sharps and Rolling Block rifles. Both brands make very nice guns.

I used to have a Ruger #1 Tropical, in .375 H&H Mag.
270 gr. bullet, doing 3,000+ FPS is an awesome projectile.
Like many high powered rifles, it's not a real 'pleasure' to shoot at paper targets.
It WILL take down any big game on this continent.
Including 'giant' Jack Rabbits.

I have an old 7mm roller which shoots great with cast bullets. It has patina and won't win any beauty contests but it is fun to shoot.

gun

My dad owned a Remington with Danish writing on it. It could fit a giant German yaghatan style bayonet on a massive bar on the right side of the muzzle.

The block was shiny as chrome, no handguard and the bayonet had what I think was an auxiliary sight on the barrel ring opposite the guard on what would have been the top if it was mounted beneath the barrel in more typical fashion. I think either the bayonet was for another rifle or meant for many designs. It was a Solingen in a leather sheath with a metal tip and throat.

When together it was about seven feet long and perfect for spearing a cavalryman from the ground unless he was a lancer, you'd better just shoot them.

I don't know the caliber but the bayonet always got more attention than the rifle even though it was in nowhere near as good condition.
