Note: Only carbon steel alloys can be bone charcoal color case hardened. Stainless steels, aluminum, etc. cannot be done. Steels that have been finished with DLC, Black Nitride, Parkerizing, etc. do not color case harden well and we do not recommend it. We do not recommend that some parts that have a thin cross section or are oddly shaped be color case hardened. If you have questions about your project, please call us for our opinion.

Prices do not include hand polishing or any other special metal surface preparation or for disassembly and reassembly. Those services are invoiced at the actual number of hours of labor. If you decide to polish the parts yourself, we recommend that you use 400 to 600 grit abrasives to finish.

Note: We do not usually bone charcoal color case harden bolt action receivers and never do bolts and barrels.

Wyoming Armory has some replacement parts for the Ballard single shot rifle, as well as the Winchester Model 1885. Parts commonly in need of replacing such s firing pins, springs, sears, extractors, lever and breechblock screws, breechblock links and hammers are in stock. Small supplies of original production parts are available for restoration projects. Due to the nature of original 1800’s production olerances, replacement parts should be hand fit by a competent gunsmith. Give us a call with your needs and we will do our best to get your old Ballard or Highwall back into shooting condition.

Wyoming Armory specializes in the restoration of all single shot rifles, particularly Ballards, Stevens and Winchesters. We can give an estimate on the necessary parts and labor to restore your old single shot back to “match-ready” condition, including new stocks based on original patterns. Trouble shooting “cranky” rifles is a particular area of expertise; let us check over that newly acquired rifle for problems in bedding, barrel crowning, or chambering. We can evaluate your rifle and make recommendations as to correct bullet moulds and appropriate loads. Lining of old barrels is another service offered by Wyoming Armory. We can restore that old barrel to match condition with one of our 4130 armory-grade steel liners, hammer-rifled with Schoyen-style rifling in .22, .32, .38, .40 and .45 caliber. Collectively, we have years of experience in fine-tuning the single shot match rifle, all of which can be put at your disposal. Call us at 307-527-4570 for a personal quote on finishing your latest project.

OPTIMIZING PERFORMANCE IN YOUR .22 LR RIFLE

In order to get the best accuracy out of your .22 LR rifle you must be willing to test ammo. Each individual rifle, each barrel, will have a preference. Some can be quite easy - others will be finicky.

Proper testing will require around 100 rounds of each ammo. Bear in mind that each lot number of ammo will be ever so slightly different and if you have a finicky barrel on lot will be great and another not so much.

.22 LR ammo also will have different lube formulas between manufacturers and possibly within a given brand. You must take this into account when you change ammo during testing. Shoot at least ten rounds of the ammo before shooting for group. If you clean between ammo groups it could require 20+ rounds before you can get valid groups. Ever seen a rifle perform better with last groups vs. first?

Once you have your selection of ammo & are ready to test, figure out a process and use the same process for each ammo. Same distance, same shots per group, same number of groups. I suggest a minimum of 5 - 5 shot groups. More shots per group and more groups might give you a better perspective - more data usually means it's more reliable.

I do my initial testing at 50 yards. I will shoot 5 - 5 shot groups with each ammo. I will shoot "foulers" between different ammos. Each group is measured to 3 decimal places and an average is calculated for each ammo. The top 3 or so will get another test, but at 100 yards. Most times a clear choice will emerge.

Do not assume the most expensive ammo will be the most accurate. Some barrels seem to like ammo from the mid-priced area and others even lower priced. You must understand accuracy required to be competitive for the sport you participate in. If accuracy required is generous you may get by with less expensive alternatives.

Needless to say the better conditions you shoot in, the more valid your results. Start with an open mind in regards to ammo choices. Sometimes you get lucky and the more affordable ammo will suit your needs. Once you find the magic ammo, stock up on it. Sometimes between required accuracy and quality of manufacturing, variations between lot numbers is insignificant. Once I decide on the ammo my gun prefers, I buy that ammo by the case.

Ammo that has worked in my rifles over the years: SK Std Plus, Wolf Match, Wolf Match Extra, Lapua Center X, Lapua Midas, RWS R50, RWS R100, Eley 10X, There are many others available which may justify testing. Ask around at your next event and get an idea about what's being used with success.

WINCHESTER 1885 DOUBLE SET TRIGGER ADJUSTMENT

The trigger on your rifle was set and Loctited before leaving our shop. We do not recommend altering this adjustment. If your trigger requires adjustment at some point - “dry fire” set trigger with hammer fully down in the fired position.

The small screw between the triggers is the adjustment screw. There is only a small window of adjustment that allows triggers to function correctly. Turning screw in, clockwise, lessens engagement between the 2 triggers. Turning screw out, counterclockwise, increases engagement.

If the trigger will not set at all, screw is turned in too far. Back adjustment screw out till trigger sets, plus another 1/2+ turn.

With the hammer fully down, set triggers. Turn adjustment screw clockwise (in) until trigger releases. Turn 1/8 – 1/2 turn counterclockwise (out) and check function. This will be optimum setting. Loctite Adjustment screw with blue Loctite.

If you want to test, dry fire, from a hammer cocked situation, place a foam ear plug or Snap Cap between hammer and breech block. Letting hammer fall without a Snap Cap or a foam/rubber block to absorb impact has been known to lead to broken firing pins.
