Default Picked up a New "Tool" Today

I have been looking for one of these for a couple years. I it is an DISC Original 50. But more importantly it is what I call a big bore 50. I have titled it a DISC Carbine. It only has a 22" barrel and will work perfect for me during Idaho's late ML season since we hunt in the timber that time of the year.

I made several changes to the carbine. First the ODISC stock had to go so I put a DISC Extreme thumbhole on it. It also came ready to shoot Orange plastic jackets, pulled that out and installed a Knight Western breech plug and a Lehigh #11 nipple. Installed a western style Lehigh/Knight bolt and a newer non C tool hammer assembly. The trigger is an original 3 screw Timney,



Then I put a Williams FP Peep sight on:



And the last thing was to install was a Williams #1690 Streamlined ramp with a 0.343 Williams Fire Sight and Williams Fire Sight Hood. And for me the green fiber optic is much more visible so I swapped the red one out for a green .060 rod.







Now to be able to get to the farm and get it sighted in... The snow is the big hinderance there...

Nice looking new toy, keep us informed on the progress. I got a couple of new project MLers, the one I just posted a bit back is a Dixie Gun Works Tennessee Mountain Rifle, a little work but she turned out pretty good. I still could use some advice on it, if you get a chance check it out.
