Here is picture of top part of the
first scale-up model, next to smaller
Wickliffe. It has 12GA FH round in feed
trough. It is aluminum just for a model.
It will handle 12GA FH, 700HE, 700NE, 600NE,
etc. Bottom of block is flat to set on
mill table to do the machining.Next machining
will be the hole and slot down through the
action for breech block and hammer to
slide up and down in.Its taken awhile to
get some tooling.I had none when we set up
vertical mill, and have to get more.The
action model also will be narrowed up when
finished, and contoured to look as good
as the Wickcliffe.Ed.

I guess that 700HE has enough power to take down anything walking?

I was just gonna look for this topic, and I'm glad to see you guys are still doing this. I would seriously be interested in something like this if I continue to hunt in New Jersey and New York where it's "shotgun only". Heh. Those guys didn't consider something like what you're doing!

Tested the Wickcliffe with 12ga FH case
in a temperary chamber to see if
hammer with beefed up spring would fire
bmg primers.I scalloped out the back
of the action so 12ga cases would feed
into the action and temp chamber
They fired ok. Bur the extra stiff spring
makes it hard to cock. We will have to work
on that.The original Wickcliffe
action that we want to scale up is tall
enough so that when breech block is
lowered the block clears the bottom
a 12ga rim when cases slide out of chamber.
So in the scale up we need to just add a
a little width for wider breech block,
and the bigger barrel thread, and keep the
sides thick for strength.Ed

How does a man enter the lottery for one of these?

In response to guys who can't find 4759
we will test powders in the same speed range.
Tested 2 fast stick powders, 4198 and 4227.
Both didn't ignite good with small primers
in plastic cases. Another I plan on trying
VV110, when I find some. It is bulkier
and slight chance may work like 4759. Ed

Are these guns going to be marketed? If so i would like to have one for myself.


I really like the ideal.

Right now you can get a NEF ultra slug gun and use
4759 loads in plastic and brass 3" cases. You can get
a Savage 210 and rebarrel like I did. And put in
long chamber. Use 4759 3" loads in it also and
many other modern 12ga shotguns.We are scaling up
a falling block hopefully to be produced in the future to
use, at a decent price.Ed
