The project has started. Relining an old 1859 Sharps carbine to 50-70

Lots of pictures and easier to read on my website.

Okay, you've talked me into it. I have a couple of lathes and a mill so I'll start shopping for a liner for my '73 SRC in 44-40. Already have the chamber reamer. I bet it will group better then.

I realized an error in the article.

I called out Loctite 270 and you should use Loctite 620. I corrected it.

Sorry
