And damn does that thing have authoritah! I'm so glad I got a rifle with the 24" barrel. I went online and think I've found a workaround for the stupid rebound hammer and no half-cock safety. Apparently I can use a hammer and trigger from Browning, might also put in a reduced power hammer spring. Can't imagine many critters that could survive a well placed shot from this beast. Still kind of kick myself for not discovering the love of lever actions a lot sooner in life. Oh well...on to a few pics.
