Re: Bore sighting a lever action
On my 1895, I also drop the lever out to bore sight. Just remember to not lose the ejector! Nothing but the pressure of the bolt holds it in. Personal experience here!
Also, this is a good way to clear a FUBAR jam (ie, COAL titch to big).
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
