I've got a new rifle in .445 coming in about 2 weeks from Mike Lange. He's putting coats 6, 7, and 8 on it and then it will be done. I've got over 100 .433 balls cast just waiting. bounce

I got some photos today of the (almost) finished gun. It's a beauty.

It's supposed to weigh about 6 1/2 lbs. with a shortened 1" barrel.

The guy gave me a real break because he made it out of left-over parts. Numrich barrel, CVA lock, etc.
I don't really want to give out the price before I check with him.

That's ok Bob I have seen some at various vendors. I was looking at the GRRW at TOW and they want 2100 for it. While sure I would like to have one like it and I can justify it if I was only shooting muzzleloaders. But Im not and I have other guns in the safe that are in that price range. Al

Al, it's considerably less than $2100. Closer to 1/4 of that.

Very nice. Is this a home building sort of guy? I confess, I have never used that calibre.

Are you building a house? My brother-in-law used to do that in Lake County. He's retired now but might know someone. Wink

.445 caliber isn't very popular. It can shoot a .440 ball with a thin patch or a .433 ball with a thicker patch. This barrel is 1:56.

Good news, the rifle has been sent. Tracking numbers say it will be here Monday. Too bad that Florida doesn't allow turkey hunting with rifles on public land. I have 3 hunts scheduled starting a week from tomorrow. A .433 ball should be just right for a turkey.

:rtup can't wait to see how she shoots!

Run some of that shoot out lube through it first. 15-20 shots and then clean it out the usual way.

IT'S HERE!

The postman drove up and said, "I have an unusual box for you. What is it?" I told him I'd have to open it to see.
He handed me a short handmade plywood box held together with screws and cloth tape.



I opened the box with a drill driver and saw the gem close up.



I assembled it (30 seconds) and held it up. It weighs almost nothing - 6 lbs. 8 oz.



I am very happy with the rifle. I dropped a bore light down it and it is immaculate inside.



I'll clean it and shoot it tomorrow. I think I'll start with a .433 round ball and 55 gr. of 3f. I'll work my way up to 65 or 70 gr. after using Jon's "Shoot Out" polishing compound.
