IMG_1339
Single shot 30-30

Description: This is an old Pachmyer Dominator single shot conversion kit that`s attached to a 1911 frame.
This was a special order caliber in 30-30 Win. with a 14" barrel. I havent shot this setup in years and would like to take it to the range with some different loads to see what she will do. I feel like I`am playing catch-up with you single shot hunters. Any favorite handloads???

Definitely looks like something straight out of a 007 film. Nice looking rig. What type of scope is on it?
How do you put the shell in?

Been gone for awhile,real busy with work, but had to stop by and post on this awesome creation. Now this is a piece of art HE HE. I love it, I love the feel of a semi-auto frame in my hands, combined with the accuracy of a long barreled singleshot....can you say heaven. I could do some damage to the hog population down here with a rig like that. Great pic James.

That would be an awsome rig to try out. I have found that the 125 Nolser BT and the Hornady 130gr SSPB (Now the Vmax My favorite) work great for the 30-30 I like to use the H4895 in this case. I would start @ 34 gr.s and you will be able to go up to 36-36.5 at max. That gun might suprise you.

If it jams force it! If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

Where can you find one of those rigs?? I looked on the auction sites and only found a SASS at a cabelas it was $1000 complete (It was a 7 BR). That configuration looks like a lot of fun

H2, I`ve only seen a few of these setups for sale with the last one being a 7-08 for $799. One thing about this type of set-up in using the 45acp frame is
versitility. First you have a scoped 30-30 with a 14" barrel for everything up to deer size game. Second you can convert the gun back to the original series
70 in 45 ACP for defense and third you can install the Colt conversion kit
making the gun into a 22lr semi-auto for small game. I`ve wanted to take a small hard side brief case and custom fit all of these parts into a foam lining. With some extra ammo in all three calibers this set-up would be most helpful if you should get stuck in the back country.

Very easy to shoot. The only problem were lights hits to the rifle primers. When I switched frames from my Gold Cup to a 38 super the light hit problem ceased.

James, this is an AWESOME set-up. Thanks for sharing it with me by asking me to look it up via our Pachmayr tape exchange on bragging board...very cool!
