Shiloh customer support!

Post by X007 » Wed Feb 13, 2019 10:15 am

I am new to the Shiloh Sharps gang. I purchased a used 40-70SS #1 Sporter from 1996. The resized shells would not go into my chamber using 30-40 Krag brass. One call to Kirk and boom.....Diagnosed and corrected! A new extractor for my rifle showed up 3 days later and issue resolved. Apparently back them the extractors were cut differently for the brass available. 38-55 extractor maybe. Since this I have ordered a #1 34" Sporter in 45-70 with some nice options. I want to thank Lucinda and Kirk for there outstanding communication and support/help. I look forward to getting some trigger time in once I do some reloading.

Good choice (32" and #1). You should shoot a match or three.

Welcome to the club.
