Re: Pump Rifle Manufacturers Old & New

once owned a marlin pump in 22lr, i kinda think it was a model 27 too. it was stolen, so if you find someone looking for a bolt, it's mine and the bolt is in my parts box! also, there was a slide actioned version of the m-1 carbine built around the time of the Bay of Pigs debacle; as i disremember, it could be had in a 44 mag chambering!

Re: Pump Rifle Manufacturers Old & New

Fatboy, thanks for the M1 carbine pump information. I have never heard of it, but my research is now coming up with some details. I have started another thread to discuss it and try to find out more.

Re: Pump Rifle Manufacturers Old & New

The Standard was actually made in two different models - the gas-operated Model G which would operate like a pump with the gas port closed; and the pump-only (no gas operation) Model M.

Well Steve, I can honestly say that is one system I would not have thought of. Thanks for the link. I would sure like to try that one, but I doubt that will ever happen.

Re: Pump Rifle Manufacturers Old & New

Thanks for the Burgess link, Steve. One of the most interesting things I found in the article was the fit (or lack thereof) of the lead bullets to the barrel and the decent accuracy still obtained. Makes me wonder how much I know about cast bullet shooting. That bullet must to ahead and "bump-up" to fit, don't you suppose?

But maybe it isn't totally surprising: years ago I acquired a Japanese Arisaka in 7.7 that had been redone to .308 Win. It had a grossly oversized barrel (.315 as I recall it) and yet I got cast bullet accuracy similar to what Venturino got with the Burgess using a .310 cast bullet, though the bullet keyholed with my first tries using light loads. Didn't pretend to work until I upped the pressures to a moderate level. I didn't consider 4-minute accuracy to be promising and didn't continue to pursue cast bullets with it, but that rifle gave good (2-minute or better) accuracy with jacketed and so that's what I used in it.

What a find in a rifle, though. Sure too bad we don't have more of them around to play with. Maybe Uberti will pick up the design!

I believe Israeli Weapons Industries made the Timberwolf pump carbine in .357 and .44 Magnum for a few years. Haven't seen one in ages.
