Downside of the Buffalo Classic

Postby iveygun3 » Wed Dec 07, 2005 10:31 am

I have found the downside of my new 45/70 and have made a good decision to fix problem. Prob: Can't see through peep sight in low light.
Solution: Not messing with beauty by scoping it, so I will start back hunting with my CVA OPTIMA PRO with a big 50mm sitting on top and hunt til legal shooting time ends. No problems with sighting on that bad boy.

I'm pretty sure the break actions do, but not sure about the Buffalo Classics...

The New England (former Rossie, former H&R) brands do.

The ones I've seen come with a one piece Weaver style mount already on the rifle.

Yes the buffalo classic is tapped for mount, but does require the removal of rear peep sight. I just can't mess up the look by sticking a scope on it. It's "old school" if you know what I mean.

Has anyone tried the 38 55 New England Target rifle :?: Im interested in one my 45 70 is kicking my butt. Ive got it at the gunsmiths for an attitude adjustment, trigger pull lightening and LIMBSAVER pad. Its not that bad for a couple shots but 10 - 15 rounds makes my whole arm sore

45/70

Postby KILLADEAUX » Tue Nov 14, 2006 8:26 pm

I purchased a Uberti 1885 Hi-Wall 45/70 with a 32 inch barrel with checkered grip and forearm. I'm shooting Hornady Leverevolution, 325 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of 2150 fps. Shot a very tight group at 100 yards, bullets touching. Only dropped 2 inches at 200 yards. Looking forward to primitive weapon season.

45/70

Postby KILLADEAUX » Tue Dec 05, 2006 7:32 pm

Two for two with the 45/70. A buck and a doe within 30 minutes of each other. The doe first with a neck shot. When the buck walked up to her and sniffed her body, I shot him in the neck also and he dropped on top of her. That's what I call wacking and stacking.
