So what now? We will soon begin updating the forum to the latest version of SMF software. It may be necessary to do a series of updates instead of just one. If multiple updates are required, every effort will be made to assure the process runs as smoothly as possible. Excellent hosting support and SMF support will help made this possible.

SMF updates do not always go right. They can break a forum. In order to prevent such a disaster and to ensure a smooth transition, each forum will be cloned and have a twin version of it as a test forum.

Any changes such as updates will be run on the test forum first. This will be the troubleshooting platform for all future changes. These precautions will ensure continuous functionality and avoid any problems or disruptions.

An update schedule will be posted after the test forums are set up.

Our missing attachment issue is resolved.I thank you for your patience. I am sorry for the frustration that it caused our members.

We are on our new server with an absolutely amazing tech support from Namecheap.com. Resolution of the attachment issue and and others would not have occurred without their assistance.

One reason we left our original hosting company was due to the fact that a SSL certificate could not be installed on their server unless they were purchased through them at absurd prices.

Our SSL certificate is now installed and the forum is secure. In addition to the security advantage we have already made huge advancement in our search engine ranking position.

Currently, we have moved up from not even being in the top 100 of Google's search engine to #37 for the keyword, 1858 Remington. I am confident that this advancement will continue. This means our new member registrations should begin to increase considerably.

So what now? We will soon begin updating the forum to the latest version of SMF software. It may be necessary to do a series of updates instead of just one. If multiple updates are required, every effort will be made to assure the process runs as smoothly as possible. Excellent hosting support and SMF support will help made this possible.

Oh, and this is no lightweight hunting rifle! It weighs in at one ounce under 12 pounds.

Hi Fred -

Whelp, some Pietta Remingtons are noted for shooting a little low.  That tall front sight seems to be an invitation for a little judicious filing (slowly, carefully).  Many members here have done that to raise the POI.

Were you shooting one hand, two hand unsupported or from a bench rest? 

Like many here I also have a Pietta 5.5" and it sure am fine.  You'll get hooked on yours, bechya.

Welcome to the forum.
