An importer who imported some actions for me several years ago, said Leo was going to sell his business for the actions etc, and Leo Fix had some New designed actions

I bought a FBW. W action. Which I think is there new action. Built it into a breech seating rifle. CPA did the work. Great work! Haven't had the time to shoot it yet. As soon as it dries up around here. We will see.

Hope this works. Here is the info on the W action. I will still try to take some pictures this weekend. Below is a link to the information on the action.

Ken, will the firing pin fit a Model H?  If so I will take it as I broke the firing pin in my FBW two years ago and used my spare to fix it.  Thanks.  Tom

If the issue is just with nose being broken on the old firing pin it can easily be made into a two piece. Just needs to be faced off a hole drilled and a new piece made out of spring wire epoxied back in. They typically break right at the shoulder and a two piece eliminates it from occuring again and it will then last several lifetimes.

Bnice,  I bought the action last year. I have a BRC chocked barrel .32 cal. The case is a 357 max tapered with a 32-40 sizing die. It has a little bit different taper near the mouth. It's a breech seating rifle. My buddy has his CPA up and running using the same reamer. Show a lot of promise. I'll try to get some pictures.

I just talked to Leo and he told me that the firing pin for a Model J won't work in my Model H.  I also asked him about the closed loop levers because I really like the look of them but alsa, the levers on the Model W are diferent as well.  Tom

Tom if you were a bit closer to myself you could come over and I would turn you a new one. Or better if you still have the broken one we could turn into a two piece so either way you would end up with having a spare. If you happen to have access to a lathe it can also be easily done by yourself by simply using a grade bolt from your local hardware store.

John, thanks for the kind offer.  I broke the old one and Leo sent me a new one in a few days and I tossed the old one away.  I learned my lesson and fully expect the one in the rifle to last me forever but if it breaks your idea of making a two piece one sounds to be an easy fix.  Tom
