I’ve taken the time to read all of the posts on this without making a reply.
I used to work or help out, rather; a gunsmith just a few blocks away.
He had arthritis so bad he couldn’t properly toque anything.
I was in jr. high school and was far past fastenated with guns and reloading.
He liked to pay me in trade and the one rifle I got from him came in the form of a .30 Gibbs.
It came with lots of fire formed brass and about 100 rnds of loaded ammo.
I think they were 150 gr Hornady old school bullets.
It was the most accurate rifle I ever owned. I ended up selling it because I didn’t know how to order Wildcat diesback in the 80’s.
I sold it to a fellow in north Idaho.
Wish I never parted with that gun.
Wish ya the best with this gun
Perhaps it is not too late to build another. Cheers!
