Default Re: Navy Arms Martini in .25 Krag - Oooh Baby...

No, 22. I've been pretty 'hard at it' for the last two months. Plus, I'm still mulling over how to get the barrel rebored to .416 and chambered for the .416x.348 Win. Considering the other 'irons' in the fire, this rifle's metamorphosis is fairly low on my priority list.

Thanks for asking though. I honestly do appreciate being reminded of my languishing projects.

PS - Here is the picture of the brass I promised. The .22/.30-30 seen on the left is what my first Martini (the Martini-Enfield that is now chambered in .50 Alaskan) was chambered in. In the middle is the .257 Roberts AI that the TCR-83 was chambered in (as well as .308 Win), and the .25 Krag AI is on the right.

PPS - I still haven't checked the twist rate on the Krag.
