Royce,
That's a very nice action and stock. All it needs is a barrel on it. How long have you had it and do you have any plans for it?

Thanks Frank I have had it for a while. I thought that it would make a good bench gun.  Would you have any suggestions on the perfect gun barrel?(32-40,38-55)   Royce

Royce,
These actions are among the very strongest and will take anything you mount to them.

I'm going to put a 33 cal Pac-Nor barrel on mine and chamber for the same ELCO 33 (MAX case) that my Borchardt has.

If you look at the post by SchuetzenDave, you'll see that all but four 1240+ scores are by the Miller Short and a 30 cal on the Max case and all but three barrels are RKS. They are higher pressure cartridges and the Clerke will handle them with ease.

If your looking for that kind of accuracy, get a 32 RKS and chamber in the Miller short.

Frank

Thanks Frank looks like the Miller 32 short goes to the top of my list.

Hello,

I have a Clerke high wall that has a strange "color case" finish. The serial number is 2258 in rather large fine numbers that look engraved rather than stamped but I could be wrong, the serial number is on the lower part of the receiver just ahead of the lever pivot. This action has an upper and lower tang, I do not know if there is a stock bolt or just the tangs. My Clerke has a single, non adjustable trigger. It is in 225 Winchester and has a J. Unertl 10X target scope mounted on it.

The barrel is marked "FLAIG'S" in a script font above a block letter "225 WIN". The stock is very well done, it appears to be an English Walnut with very nice checkering and an inletted, checkered metal butt plate and grip cap.

Hope this helps,

Marcos (elalto)

Marco's,
I missed your reply, until now. Thank you very much for your rifle picture and spec's.

A new thread developed on Clerkes and I'm adding that link to this thread:

A nice aspect of the old high wall design (as Winchester manufactured it) is that the trigger tang is easily changed.  Several folks, including the late Treeblood, figured out ways to adapt existing DSTs to the original or a fresh-made trigger tang to produce a good working DST on a plain sporter action.  Using a TC set as a starting point sounds like a good idea to me.

Yes, that is true.

Over simplifying it, all you need to do it is:

1. A machined blank, to fit the internal cuts in the frame for the trigger plate.

2. A long tailed sear.

3. A set of DST triggers, out of most any muzzle loader.

4. And the most important! A little ingenuity, time and patients!

If someone would make a trigger plate casting, with a particular DST mechanism, in mind, it might only take that, a long tailed sear and a drill press to do it Smiley

Hi Rodney Smiley

Rodney,
Do you have a DST lever, too?

I have been doing the coil spring actions mostly I have made a one piece trigger for it, like Browning's 1887 shotgun trigger that works well and eliminates two pieces . worked good in my rifle smithing classes. also have the DST pistol grip set with the Spur lever. also will be doing a few flat spring sets , Pope levers and Scroll levers. also have molds for the Winchester palm rests both types and buttplates , Laudensack, Swiss and checked shotgun and sporting,short and long tangs etc.
