Re: My 1907 model 8

1990's was a big kick to canadian gun owners teeth. Firearms act came to being that made no mention of new rules for the criminal use of firearms, but made a bunch of rules for the firearms community to be forced to follow unless they wanted to experience jail time. Improper storage and other things...

Re: My 1907 model 8

Canada unfortunately rules here say locked for storage if not I get charged with improper storage lose my licence lose my guns and a few other nice things that were written into law.

Re: My 1907 model 8

She looks better than she did, still has some ugly "notched in deer kills" on stock and fore end. Is the detent ball supposed to hold the safety about 1/8th of an inch off the receiver and be difficult to switch from safe to fire?

Re: My 1907 model 8

Well I decided it wouldn't be worth making a full restoration on this Rifle, so I cleaned it up, got the spare parts that I needed Thanks to this forum, and started a "Functional" restoration. Involved some cold bluing to protect the barrel and cleaning up of the wood stock (including steaming). I s...

Re: Model 10 bolt is apart - yippee!

I wasn't brave enough to take mine apart since it only needed cleaning, I just dunked her in varsol. Did you get her back together easily?

Re: My 1907 model 8

Definitely a scavenger hunt, I may just make my own detent pin. Probably easier than sourcing, and cheaper. Even as beaten up as she is, it is quite an intriguing rifle to look at.

Re: My 1907 model 8

Yeah even though I do Like having a gun that will grow in value, It doesn't change anything since I don't sell my firearms. I'm intrigued by the mechanics of firearms, and enjoy seeing how the early repeaters were built. Most new repeating firearms are based on well tested mechanisms. Repeating arms...

Anyways Now I'm wondering If I should leave it as is or reblue and clean it up into a decent looking rifle. -Missing original buttplate, had a badly fitting one with it. -the deten...
