  1. I would almost bet money that if you wrote Winchester and asked if a 1897 pump gun that was made around the turn of the century (19th/20th) was safe to use, they would most likely tell you no.
  2. http://www.mikescustomhatters.com/ in Longview TEXAS. Mike can make you anything you want. I have 6 he made for me. I recommend him Highly.
  3. No black, haven't been doing much shooting in a while. My wife and I have custody of two grandsons and I hate going off shooting and having fun and she can't go. The 2 boys are 5 and 6 and are a real hand full. Their dad died in 2016 and their mother is cray as an outhouse rat. Would like to shoot with you again sometime.
  4. Troublemakers are 92 miles from Nacogdoches, about an hour and half. IF they still shoot.
  5. Here's my take on the subject at hand. I wish everyone else would shoot a henry big boy...but NOT me. I've never shot one, and never will, BUT I have seen other's give it a try Have a good day.
  6. I have 2 of these, I just hour glassed the stock hammer/mainsprings.
  7. Concerning whether Colt's are the Gold Standard. Just think about this, everyone in the world knows what a Colt is, how many none shooters know what USFA, Standard, Uberti, Pietta, STI, ASM, Ruger or anything else is that someone can come with for a Single Action “Cowboy” gun. I have a Munden tuned early 3rd gen SAA, 2 early 3rd gen tuned by Lee in Arizona, these 3 revolvers are as smooth as glass, no take up, 1 3/4# triggers. The only thing I have broken was the ejector rod head broke on one while I shooting it. Have 3 more 3rd gen Single action Colt's, 2 are late 3rd's with removable cy
  8. There is no outside dimensional difference between a .223 rem and a 5.56 nato. The main differences are that 5.56x45 mm NATO operates at a higher chamber pressure (about 60,000 p.s.i. versus 55,000 p.s.i. on the . 223 Rem.) and the 5.56's chamber is slightly larger (throat is longer .125" longer) than that of the .223 Rem Also, the throat or leade is longer in the 5.56x45 mm chamber.223 Rem
  9. Another thing it does, it stops the fired caps falling off the nipples and jamming the revolver.
  10. WOW, I am so sorry to hear this. Loved shooting with him and Red. Praying for the whole family. I will surely miss him.
  11. I have reloaded quit a few (several 100). Al I do is use a Lee sizer-decaping die (I did modify it some, I cut the pin shorter and put a set in the top to keep the pin from backing out). It will punch a hole and then I use regular boxer primers. Have reloaded some of them several times with NO problem. Just did this to see if it would work. And it is doable. Proceed on your own.
  12. I don't want a "participation" award. If I don't place I don't want anything, period. Less is more.
