Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Many thanks Cattus, that is one heck of a sight.. That Rifleman sight is wonderful for the British gun owners..

Finally started to break this Ross down a little. I never owned one or shot one before, got this on a lark. Was hoping that it would be like its older Brother the Ross 1910 and would be a true straight pull.. Was hoping when you started pulling on the bolt the bolt would unlock. But you need to press that button in front of the trigger guard to release the Bolt.. Nice, but is that a true straight pull??.. But its only a 22, how much work and expense do you put in it..

My only question with the rifle is that there seems to be alot of play in that trigger.. Both cocked and uncocked.. Is that Normal???

Now you will see that this Bolt handle is more a bar and different then what is shown on the Rifleman web site

You will note that there is a lot of wood working in the stock.
