    You might try the books by deHaas...he wrote a couple of general ones about the single shot rifles plus at least two on designing and modifying them. I personally only have the first general one, but the later ones (I am told) went into a great deal of detail on his idea of the "perfect" single shot action.

    a simple search of "DeHaas" at the patent office web site turns up patent 3,735,517 (through another patent reference). Search here http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/PTO/search-bool.html for "falling block" and click on the references in later patents and you'll find it. I can't get the drawings function at the site to work too well with my PC for some reason. the references

    Google patents is much easier to use than the USPTO site.

    http://www.google.com/patents?q=3%2C...earch+Patents.

    3,735,517 is the correct number.

    The deHaas book, Single Shot Actions Their Design and Construction has the details on the deHaas Miller action and the typical deHaas drawing of it.

    The book also has several other unusual actions and shop made actions.

    deHaas' last single shot book, A Potpourri of Single Shot Rifles also features several actions by other builders.

    That is a very useful link by Google.
    Have a look at 345,058, the Hindley and Field which was manufactured as the Bullard.
    I have only ever handled the repeating version, which uses the same basic action, it was remarkably smooth to operate.
