  • NitroStick ML

    What do you think of the NitroStick by Federal to be used with the TC NitroFire ? The Powder and primer are in a plastic tube that is inserted in a ML chamber and the bullet is pushed down the bore to a ridge in the barrel - now it's loaded. Should it have the same special season as a traditional ML ?
    I think this set up is one step away from a regular single shot. All that is needed is ream out ridge in the barrel and then super glue a bullet to the end of the FireStick making it one complete cartridge. Insert and fire.

    I like the concept of seating the bullet first, before the powder charge is in place. Seems safer.

    Also, I like being able to remove the charge with ease instead of firing the gun or pulling the breach plug and dumping the powder.

      Easy unloading is a good point - no way to get the primer out, have to take the whole stick.

      Do you belong to Shooters Forum ?

          Since the powder goes in the breech end and not the muzzle end I was reading that they may not be legal in some states

              Jim, I can be fairly cheap about equipment. However, one of my friends owns a gunshop and he just told me he's ordered 10 Henry rifles. I'm afraid one of those in .45 Colt may end up in my safe.

                In SportingClassics knives pg 2 bottom I had that exact Olsen Knife. I thought it too bulky and sold it at a gun show for $200. I think they are made in Minn. roll over the pic of a knife and you can see the sheath for it.
                I don't know why but I am not a fan of Henry. I understand they have a good reputation. .45 colt would be suprimo for pigs.

                  I was thinking the same thing - not really a classic ML and in my mind should not get the special seasons ML do get. In PA, you can not even use a percussion ML, flint only and I think iron sights only.
