    I picked up a no.1 today, it's ugly but it could be fun. this gun is partly finished. the stock was made by the old owner not the best but it works for now. it has a green mountain 458/14 blank on it, i think it's 24'' or 25''.the firing pin as broken and repaired, but it was to long. i just fixed that. it has the rotary extractor, it fits the 45 case perfect so no work is needed there.

    the action is missing one screw on the top left of the action, think it's something for the extractor? it looks like it was removed for when the barrel was added. one other thing is there is a threaded hole that's under the barrel shank inside the front of the action, what goes there and what is it for. DSCN0218.JPG

    the barrel is just raw but i think i will just crown it and clean it up, the chamber looks good. i could throw it on my dads lathe and thin it up some, but leaving it for now.

    id like to get a year on this action it has the firing pin retractor, i think they added that later for the BP actions it has the large pin hole to. this action has the extra screw below the pivot pins on the left side. and this has the trigger guard sling loop. on the top rear tang it says, remingtons ilion ny usa pat 1864 and 1866. # 13539

    gun came with 25 new starline 2.6, they are 2.6 long so there not the BA 110 brass, 45-100 brass will be fine. the hammer was relieved so they feed fine. .

    there are no sight the barrel it was drilled for a weaver scope mount i took off. depending on what i do to the barrel will decide what i do for sights.

    i don't have very much in this project, i will be getting a 1867 rolling block to. think its a swede maybe a husqvarna. have to see what it is. i figured at worst i pull the barrel and wood and i have a good action to build off. thanks any info will help and share you rolling blocks if you got them.troy.

    Wow neat rifle Troy! I always wanted a big single shot, and the rolling blocks are just cool. Time to find some figured walnut and make some furniture!

    I had a nice piece of figured cherry seasoning out back, but it cracked as it dried. Gotta find something for a stock project, but yours screams figured walnut.

    i was thinking of that, cant do it here have to go to my dads to work. if the barrel was 30''+ the size would be nice, but this short it would be a nice sporting rifle. don't now what would happen to the trueness of the barrel if i put it in the lathe and thin it down.

    ok found my measuring tape, how does one loose something they have more then 3 off? anyway the barrel is 26 3/4 call it 1/2 after i crown it. is there a crown that works best with black powder. i normally do a recessed crown. this thing should push some heavy bullets with the 1-14 twist. the loaded rounds i got look like the 500 lee pointed, i am going to pull them, i wanted to see if they will fit in my siamese mauser throat.

    Very, very cool!! 45-110 is BIG Medicine indeed.

    I have a Pedersoli RB in 45-70 - with the massive octagonal 30" barrel - and it seems best with the 535 grs Postel over 73 grs 1.5 F Old Eynsford, which needs a lot of compression - just under 1/4" Currently dialing in a 500 grs paper patched slick that seems to prefer about 68 grs and less compression.

    That 45-110 is a beast!

    Doesn't look too long to me, if you lathe turn it just run it on centers. Don't make it too light though itll kick too much.

    are lathe is 9x36 so it will fit, i was just thinking that maybe the heavy barrel maybe better. it feels less the 12 pounds id say.

    I'd probably keep it around ten pounds, any lighter and it'll kick too much to be fun.

    Did you ever figure out who made your action. The only RB that I have fooled with lately was Danish. Those breech blocks had two firing pin holes. The firing pin was symmetrical designed to fire rimfire and center fire by turning the firing pin over. I'd shoot it like it is after getting a crown. This would keep you from putting money into something that won't work.

    Addendum: What about sights?

    don't exactly no the action says remingtons,ilion ny no other real markings. there is a h and s on the pivot pins. i striped the action, parts are all matching.8's and 3's looks very similar but all the same numbers. looks nice and clean in there to. one weird thing is i have never seen this kind of rotating ejetor before,and here the one screw is missing does not seem to have a use. maybe it was converted for the other style ejector?

    You're over my pay grade at this point for sure. Maybe the Remington collectors websites can help.

    I have the same problem with tape measures -- I'm up to five of them, with three in my shop alone. Even worse with reading glasses, to the point that my wife carries a pair in her purse for me.

    May I be so crude as to ask what you paid for this interesting project arm?

    Nice project piece there troy. :thumbup:
    That type of stock will make it "easier" to use some fancy figured wood since you can get by with smaller pieces.

    very little money, i traded for a old ar-15 upper. think i gave $50 for it a few years ago. ill find out in a few hours, but i was going to get a swede rolling block with a bad barrel, but think i m getting a trapdoor in 50-70 now.

    Frank DeHaas said the mystery hole was for a screw to stop the extractor with rimless cartridges. Might explain the rough look of the present extractor, made to go from 7mm to .45 xx. Serial number on hammer and breechblock might be part of a foreign contract, too.

    the tang has the 64 an 1866 pat most foreign one seam to have more patients. the hammer and breechblock have the same # as whats on the top and lower tangs. kinda weird that it's was converted from rimmless to rimmed but the action loos like its the black powder action.
