Peregrine Question

Is a Peregrine  action a striker or internal hammer? My local gun shop just aquired one and I am contemplating another (sigh) project.

Thanks for the reply. Although it will take a chunk of my funds saved for the upcoming Colorado Collectors Show I think I will have to get it. It should make a nice off hand rifle even with the double set triggers. Will give you first option if my mind changes.

The peregrine is an internal hammer action.   Ledball

Is there more than one configuration? This is the one I am looking at.  Undecided

I once owned one with an upgrade, fairly sophisticated four lever trigger, there were two steels used, one for lower pressure cartridges to be case colored, and one for higher pressure cartridges. There was also a Pope style schuetzen lever available. Quite possibly other variations I'm not aware of.

Has anyone a picture of one of these actions taken apart or a diagram of the internal operations?
Thanks LD1

Iím a fan of the Peregrine action, it may be the very best internal hammer action ever made, it will hold its own in any BR or OH match.  Ledball

Thanks much for all the comments. It appears this is a desireable action to build on and I will. There are many questions on construction I have that will have to wait until another day when the disposable funds replenish.

As usual (except on matters of powder choice) I agree with my long time friend ledball with regards to the greatness of the Peregrine action... which is to be expected since we both learned much at the feet of Charlie Dell who regarded it as one of the best single shot actions of all times (if not the best!)

I'm a little surprised with your comment, Flatlander that, "It should make a nice off hand rifle even with the double set triggers."  I've never regarded DSTs as disadvantageous for an off hand rifle.  What are you basing this comment on?

Froggie:
Comment on double sets based on lock time verses patent single trigger. I shoot my single 3#† Remington Roller trigger much better than my Sharps 74 double sets but that is just me. I'm definitely not good enough to know anything but my own capabilities. That may open up a can of worms.
