I thought maybe this would have interest for the group. I got into BPCR with a rifle that I found on Doc Whites web site a few years ago. It was a project rifle that he had started but lost interest in finishing. It’s a Remington Rolling Block that was chambered in 50-140. Yes you read that right. Anyhow I made a deal with Doc and purchased the rifle as is. It was barreled with a Douglas SS octagon 50 cal barrel and built up on a 7mm #5 action. The wood was from tree bone and Doc had fit it with a White Rifle rubber recoil pad. The rifle did not have an extractor and the wood was rough shaped. The for end was also rough fit. Once I received the rifle, I brought it to a local gun smith by the name John Taylor,of Taylor Machine Shop. He gave it the once over and we decided that the 50-70 round would be better suited for this build. He had to cut the barrel back and re chamber for the new cartridge. He fit the extractor and attempted to blue the barreled action. This is when we discovered the barrel was stainless. The action was blued and the barrel was dura coated black. I did the stock work from shaping to finish. The scope was added just a few months ago. The rifle was fitted with a Lyman globe and a MVA vernier tang sight as well. Fun little carbine for sure.

Nice looking carbine ! I think your gunsmith steered you in the right direction with the 50-70 round ,even Buffalo Bill thought it was plenty good enough for Buffalo.

Cool gun! I like it.

Beautiful stock - and I know tree bone aint cheap. You've got a chunk of change invested, I can tell.
