Re: Maximum Barrel Weight
Being that it is a single shot, the action will be relativly stiff, comparred to a repeater. I would not have a problem hanging a full 1.250 dia. straight bull barrel on that action. Now if you get ridiculously long with the barrel that could enduce some problems. Granted proper bedding is a must, and if your still a little nervous bed the first 2 inches of the barrel shank in front of the lug.
I've hung 30" barrels this way, on single shots and had no problems.
