Absolutely nothing wrong with it being changed! It's a period build, and should be appreciated as such.

You are very welcome Bonner and what a real treasure for one to come across and then be able to call it his own. Would love to see some targets when and if time allows and you are able to spend some real enjoyable times getting out to shoot it.

It wasn't a plain sporting rifle originally.  How many mid-range or long range #1's were made?  Because of it's rarity I'm with Joe, were it mine.  But it's not.

CF please post a picture of your HW and maybe the good folks here could recommend some changes to help you improve it.  You have gone out of your way and been more than willing to provide suggestions to them and in appreciation for your efforts. I think they would be more than willing and happy to go out of their way to be able to do the same for you.

Hell I just don't give a hoot what you say. It's my rifle, and if you don't like it I don't care. I wish I had a dime for everything in my life somebody wanted done his way. Get over it you pedantic little trouble maker.
I'll tell ya this- its original barrel is fine inside. It was reblued before I got it, and that's a pity. The single set trigger it now sports is on a straight grip tang and the stock is a original Schuetzen one with the pistol grip whittled away. The prongs on the butt plate are cut off. The modern scope is mounted on a long weaver base and that's sure not original either. The whole thing was either made up or acquired by the man I got if from nearing forty years back. He bought it while attending college after the second war. I Never changed a thing, just shot it, and shot it, and shot it. Sometimes I clean it. So, that's the whole truth. I don't care if you know that. It's not too photogenic, nor am I.
Now, why don't you remember your comments about the screws?

Is the location of the metal forend tip on that roller supposed to be in front of the octagon-to-round transition point on the barrel?

Nah, just one that some disrespectful owner before me took liberties on his own property with. Shoots pretty good, though. It's like having a car that is really dependable, but ugly. From the driver's seat you can't tell- same principle works behind the scope.  Ooops, gotta go, JL's over on another thread criticizing somebody for casting bullets his own way. Funny how he can call me out for making a comment, then go right over there and do it himself. I dunno........

CF you never cease to amaze me I have never seen your rifle, never had a bad word to say about it so how in the hell did you come up with this newly fabricated false narrative about how I don't like it and how you could careless on what I have to say while not having not said anything about it. I asked you to share a picture not an unusual request and it caused you to become delusional not at all normal and more than a bit concerning. You and don't take it wrongly are in dire need of a neck up check up.

What sounds false? I was just saying that I don't care what folks say about my things, they work for me. Who'd make that description up about his own stuff? Look, I'm going on a trip. See ya in a few days, give ya time to figger this out- go blubber to Gris.

About that forend tip, BP.  That particular configuration most often indicates that the barrel has been cut off at the breech end to enable cutting a new chamber.  The usual way to verify this is to remove the forend and look for a second, earlier hole (or indications thereof) for the forend screw.

There are, of course, other ways to make that change which will preserve the barrel's length and the gun's aesthetics. But they take more work and skill and so cost more time and money.  Plus, as this particular post has made very clear, some folks simply don't care about aesthetics - and other things.

What brass do you need for making cases?
                  Joe.


Brass is made from .25-20 Single Shot (not .25-20 Win).  I got some last fall for another Lovell (I have 4 now), plus a couple .25-20 SS rifles I acquired.  Sure wish I'd bought more, as that source is apparently now out of business.
