    these were low priced single shots offered in a lot of calibers including rifle. they loaded by unscrewing th breach block and inserting the round directly. an odd thing was you had to cock it with a little lever on the side. they were pretty accurate for the money even though ackward to use. cant remember who made them but it will come to me in a minute darn crs...

    Magnum Research Lone Eagle. You didn't unscrew the breech It was an artillery breech 1/4 turn to open and eject the fired round load the new and 1/4 turn to close. Cock with the side lever. Excellent trigger and very accurate. I had one in 7MM BR that would group 3/4" at 100 yards if I did my part. I took 3 deer with mine.

    Dick Metcalf wrote a review article on the Lone Eagle, which originally was called the SSP-91 made by Ordinance Tech's ( Single Shot Pistol-1991 ), Magnum Research renamed it in 1993. You can find the article in the Sept, 1996 issue of Shooting Times. There is some handload info there. He was able to shoot 100m 3 shot 0.68" group at 2506 fps pushing a Sierra 150 gr HPBT. The barelled actions are interchangable in multiple chamberings with rotary breech. Mik
