    Making A Quigley Sharps Rifle on my lathe.

Size:  171.4 KBHi All, been off line for a bit, my computer had a brain fart and gassed it`s self. So new laptop and learning to get it going and it would not let me on the forum, got it fixed.
    So with the Hawken going good I needed a new project, looking on EBay I saw the plans for the Quigley 1874 45-70 rifle for sale!, now as I have all the add on bits form my Hawken project , why not, so bought the plans. In six days I had them, 26"x36"x nine sheets nice and clear . Now this is a lot harder to do than a muzzle loader, and I may have bitten off more than I can chew, doing this with only a lathe will be a challenge for sure. When I start there`s projects I start in the middle with the hardest part ,so I know if I carn`t make it`s no good.
    So have made the breech block, with the firing pin assy in one bit, how did I do it, buggered if I know ,but it all fits together, some pic`s, Cheers, Homebrew.357.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Mate I don't even really know what this thread is about. I thought it was about making a rifle but the pictures above don't look like any bit of a rifle that I have ever seen.

    Those pic`s and this one is to show Rushy what a Sharps looks like, and it is Maca 49`s avtar, I think. there`s pic`s are not my gun, haven`t made the barrel or receiver yet. I think my pics are to big, have to see if I can down size them, slow in down loading. Any way this is what I`m trying to build and could take a year or two. Homebrew.357.
