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?

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.

Sure loved my Peregrine in 22RF with DST. Looked for years to find a match in center fire.Never did.....Finally sold it when a matched pair of Millers came about.Couldn't afford to keep it too.......

A pair would be a dream. For a retired person on fixed income it is difficult getting extra disposable income without selling the gun safe contents. Little by little we will get this done. This one is a CF breechblock. Now to decide what Calibre so a barrel will be next purchase.

Would like to see any paperwork/manuals associated with Peregrine. Would help me get a better handle on what I have and can do with.
Thanks All:

I have a Peregrine bench gun built by Charlie Dell in a cartridge he developed and called the 32/357.  This was about equivalent to the 32 Miller Short.  Charlie built his own Offhand Peregrine in the same caliber and as I stated previously regarded this as the best single shot action ever.  I can't imagine a better caliber for competition nor a better action to build for it.

Been reading up in Modern Schuetzen Rifle book about both 32 Miller and 32-357. Both look interesting as I already have several 32 molds that may fit. Hummmmmm

I found that I could use just about any bullet I had for my 32-40 in the 32/357 as well.  My bench gun with Douglas Premium Barrel seemed to like those Ideal 319289s I had already used for years.
