    So true, soon after buying a basket case 97 and one that would not take down I realized what was going on. "................ I can't tell you how many 1897's I've seen for sale at Gun shows with the mag tube in upside down. I've been allowed to fix a lot of them for the owners, in just 10 minutes with my Swiss Army Knife and they've been very thankful. Some just don't care and say NO, it'll sell anyway. You can't believe how much easier it is to take down and put together a proper '97 with everything right. No forcing of parts and it works so much better. I was wondering if your Mag tube was in correctly, or upside down. The little piece of Metal with the 2 small screws holding it on the tube in front of the wood should always be under the barrel, not on the bottom when assembled. The later ones had a pushed up bump instead of the screwed one on the tube...again under the barrel, not on the bottom. That way the interrupted threads can line up with the ones in the receiver correctly. Just sayin'" I couldn't have said it any better. That and putting the ring in backwards. Also found one where the nimrod filled off most of the nub on the ring, so it would work, yikes.

    Bought a Ruger SP-101 from him; was an excellent transaction. Great pard to do business with.

    Music has charms to soothe a savage breast. Music has the power to enchant even the roughest of people. This proverb comes from the play The Mourning Bride, by William Congreve, an English author of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.

    Rick, I found that on ebay. it's a lazy susan type device that will hold 8 toolheads, caliber conversions and case gages. It was a little pricey, but a real space saver. I wish I could think outside the box like that.

    I saw that Johnny Meadows has listed a couple JM Marlin 1894s on Gunbroker.

    Not sure about if they will post the stages. But many matches no longer post posse lists due to so many wanting to swap posses - only to want to swap again when someone else does. So it creates a LOT of extra work. But they will allow folks to ask about switching when they sign up, but probably get only one change per person.

    Hi Rube, We all have a favorite load. Mine is 5.2 grains of Trailboss under a 200 grain LRNFP boolit. Cheers

    WD, I have two 1050s, Both called Super 1050 and both setup for 38 sp. I know one is tad different in a few minor things so suspect it ( one I bought from Black Dawge when they closed up shop on manufacturing BP ammo) to be an older model. I keep the older one setup for BP and the newer one (purchased approx 15 years ago) set-up for smokeless. I have been debating the bullet feed system but have not jumped into the buy just yet. I have talked to those who have them and they get good reviews. I do not think you will be at all disappointed in your investment and what bad can anyone say about Dillon in backing their products. Also, there are several companies that offer little aftermarket items that even adds more pleasure in the 1050 reloading experience. You might want to invest in a primer tube loader also (Dillon RF 100). You can spent about as much time loading up 100 primers as you can knocking out 100 completed rounds on the 1050 (approx 5 minutes). Big hello to my friends at BBH. Billy Boots bb75417@yahoo.com

    Not sure if your still looking, but, Spitz Adventure eyewear has some really great safety/shooting glasses that are 'full magnifying'....on the link I provided, their site, look for "MAGSHOT Hunting Shooting Safety Glasses Full Magnifying- Safety Compliant".....various lens colors and various magnifying inserts. Excellent product! http://spitsadventurewear.com/safety-glasses/full-magnifiers.html
