Thanks. Thus far the various folks that have worked on this Hepburn have done some nice work. Am happy to have it back in time for the start of the season.

We shoot 800/900/1000yd matches at Reade Range, PA, Quantico, VA & Bridgeville, DE ranges. BPTR, F-Class & Palma. A real challenge of one's wind reading skills.

Here are a couple of pic's of the receiver on the Hepburn am currently building. Headed off for case-color hardening next week. Should be at least nice as the one above.

Here is a pic of my latest Hepburn restoration "as received" in .22 Lovell (had been 'varmintized') and as it looks now in 38-50. Barrel bored to 38cal and rifled in a 13" twist, receiver engraved & case-colored, wood redone to as close as possible to an original configuration (was an inch too short so have the extra recoil pad to lengthen the pull). Will be shooting in a couple of matches later this month (one target & one silhouette). While have the wood checkered this winter while we are shooting sporting clays.
A bit more information. Is an original 1879 Remington #3, or more commonly known as a "Hepburn", named for LLHepburn, the designer of the rifle. This was the peak of Creedmoor shooting (800, 900, 1000yd) and was named for the range, which was located near the south shore of Long Island. Shooting matches were one of the largest spectator sports of era (starting shortly after the Civil War to about WW1). This particular rifle was likely made around 1890, but Remington keep poor records and went in and out of business several times until well in the middle of the 20th century. This one is chambered in 38-50 Remington, which is one of the more accurate cartridges for shooting black powder these days. I purchase 'varmintized' old single-shot rifles and restore them to something resembling their original glory. LLHepburn was a not only a noted barrel maker (where he started), but also designed the well known line of Marlin lever-action rifles that are still being built today. He was also a crack-shot and a member of the U.S. Creedmoor team for a number of years. From the start, when we were challenged by the then world champion Irish team, we dominated the matches, though the scores were often very close. As close as a single-point win out of a total of ~1600 points.

Been having a good season thus far. Won the Ohio Valley Regional 2-day match in June and was 3rd in class (AAA) and 17th overall at the Nationals in Raton, NM last month (receiving my award in the pic). Have also done well in several 1-day and a couple of 2-day matches, placing 1st or 2nd in class. Another 2-day match at the end of the month in KY, then the Eastern National 4-day match in Sept and will finish the season with the 4-day SE Regional in Canton, GA in October. Then back to sporting clays.

I've owned both Model 41 cmg pistols (long and bull barrel), my most cherished pistols. I bought them back in the 70's for a song and a dance, today they are $1600.00 ea. Also had a 686 which I regret, to this day, selling. I recently bought a S&W Victory 22, it shoots fantastic, just a sweetheart. Not quite finished as well as the 41 but all stainless and has the fiber-optic sights.

The S&W Model 41 is truly a wonderful pistol. Only wish I could shoot one well enough to justify owning. I'm just not much of a pistol shot.
