When I took mine to the range for the first time, the entire firing line stopped and stared in my direction as that 39x54R cartridge fired!

It was the first time I’d fired it after buying a pair for $80 and taking the best parts of each for one. Was scared that the 100 year old rifle might not hold together, but it did.

“100 year old rifle might not hold together, but it did.”

What year or years did you get to put together? I like the older hex receivers

I've experienced that too.

Folks raise up and get that classic "What the HELL?!" look.
