Re: H + R trapdoor breech block repair

Hello again Tom, Your idea of obtaining a complete block has much merit since I don't know if the other components match. It would be great if they did but having everything available to compare would make the project more of a possibility than an idyl thought. And, as you indicated, I would have everything needed to do the Larry Gibson fit up. Mr. Frasca indicated that I would need a low arch wide block to work on the H&R so I'll try to locate one. It would be a challenge but I enjoy that sort of thing. If I attempt the latch retrofit, I will take photos along the way and would be happy to share them with anyone. I do agree that times have changed and skills have been lost or mislaid. Many don't know how to use tools or hand fit an item or even change a tire but our grandfathers sure did! Thanks again for your thoughts!
