  1. If you still have the gun, does the mag tube turn inside the barrel band? If not, remove the barrel band screws and try to turn it. Sometimes when a replacement mag tube is installed it will not turn once the barrel band is tightened.
  2. Is the 07 still around?

  5. Outlaw Gambler,
    I hope I'm not out of line
    I noticed you were in line for Happy's 1897  and missed it.I just bought an 1875 Army Outlaw 45 Colt from Hillbilly Drifter that he had posted. I might regret it but I have the same 1897 IAC Norinco that's just taking up space in the safe that I'd let go for the same deal on as the one you missed. Same exact condition "as new in the box". I like my side by sides and only test fired this one,wrapped it back up and packed it back in it's box
    Pm me if you like jpy15026@yahoo.com
    Thanks
     John

      I am  not sure if this is the way to respond but I will try here and look for another way.

      Yes I am interested, and no you are not out of line. Can you email me the serial number, at least the first four digets, to outlawgambler@gmail.com and give me your name and address on where to send the funds. Thanks, OG

  6. Chickasaw Bill, didn't mean to insinuate you were wrong, just stating that it was an original action slide. I am not sure when the actual switch was made from 3 screw to solid action slide.
  7. It is an original Winchester 97. No replicas were made in the take down model, they were all solid frames. Appears to have been refinished, mag tube more of a parkerized finish vs blue on rest of gun. Stock is not correct for this gun. The rest is correct, including the action slide. Serial numbers match. Nice looking 97.
  8. If it is still available, I will take it.

    97 woes

    When you close the action is the bolt and carrier locked tight together? If not, is the main spring strain screw level with the top of the screw hole in the carrier? Normally the carrier is out of the way and can't block the shell in the mag tube. If your action is closed properly you can load from the bottom. If not closed properly you will not be able to load from the bottom. The action not closing properly, ie carrier not clearing, is the cause. Contact me at outlawgambler@gmail.com
  10. USPS.... shipped a rifle to a fellow gunsmith within the state, about 175 miles away from me. Used a very heavy cardboard cylinder with plastic friction caps, stapled to cyl and taped over for extra security. Fellow gunsmith called and told me USPS had delivered an empty package to him. Staples and tap had been removed not tore out. None of the three, USPS, UPS, or FEDEX are dependable. And God forbid if a claim has to be filed with any of them.
  11. I will take the 97 action slide. Send you an email. I need to know where to send funds.
