In the meantime, check out our Remington Hepburn kit! The machined kits are supplied with the barrel shank hole bored and tapped. All screw holes are drilled and tapped. The receiver & trigger guard are partially machined & the breech block has the face surface ground & the firing pin hole drilled. All springs are supplied tempered. Of course, unmachined kits have no machining.
This kit can be finished with hand tools, although access to a lathe & other machine tools is a definite plus.
All parts are castings of 8620 steel & are unheat treated. The action is recommended for use with black powder cartridges only.
Both machined and unmachined kits are ready for shipping. These kits are NOT mass produced, so filling of orders may depend on foundry production schedules.
Kits include a rudimentary set of instructions, but it's assembly requires reasonable gunsmithing skills and knowlege of single shot actions and their function.

Ever since I have been interested in single shot rifles (which
seems like all
my adult life) I
have wanted a
Remington Hepburn. Over the
years I have run into a variegated assortment here and there
but most, even the grungiest
have been overpriced for my
rather austere gun budget. In a
few cases I have just missed
some real bargains. This is the
curse of the gun crank. A few
years ago there was an outfit in
Texas or Oklahoma that was producing complete Hepburn action clones (and complete rifles) but these were fairly expensive for me also. Word was they were nicely made, though I never did see one. I haven't seen their ads recently in SSE so I'm not sure they are still in business. Then in an issue of SSE sometime last year I read a terse review written by Col. Boyd of a Hepburn action kit that was available from Upper Missouri Trading Co. in Nebraska
. I, of course, had to check this out!
