1885 High Wall


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Howdy folks,
I am about to purchase a, (new), Cimarron 1885 High Wall for various competitions. The rifle will never see anything but cast bullets in its 38-55 chamber.

I plan to also purchase a medium range vernier rear sight and a Lee Shaver globe with spirit level front sight.

I’m looking for any recommendations for making this a great shooter... e.g. Break-in for lead bullets only, barrel lapping, recipes, experiences……

Thank you,
Bruce

close, I have a low wall in .22, and it's sure a shooter. It's a tack-driver at 75 yards.
I have the Uberti Creedmoor sight, and contacted MVA and had them make a spirit level clip for me. I also bought their front sight inserts.

After all that, you can't go wrong with Lee Shaver.
I also shoot it with a Hadley eye cup, which is Lee Shaver.
The variable aperture lets me adjust for the light conditions and get the most effective depth of field.
Since it doesn't apply, I'll stay away from the ammo I like to shoot.

Here's the sight image on my favorite insert.

you can see the level bubble bdc

and here she is overall - I've since replaced the buckhorns with a Marble's folding rear


here's my daugher loading, but you can see the Hadley cup


.38-55 would be a hoot - great round.

That is a beautiful firearm indeed. What kind of cast bullets do you shoot? Maybe make your own and if so what dies?
