  1. I collector auction. Landsborough auction lots of primer at price to make your eyes water. it a Canuck thing. Sunday at 2
  2. Sometimes a drop in perfect fit IF the both guns are about the same date of manufacture. That is when swapping grip frames on one gun to the other. Twice it was fine the third time the Blackhawk grip stepped above the frame on the other. The Bisley grip frame was short of reaching the top of the frame and the front of the grip frame on the right hand side had to be filed down to match. There was no gaps in the mating surfaces and all screws fit in and tightened with no issues. Yes it works and those that have done it Easley will swear it always fits perfect. Do it often enough and you too will find out the facts.
  3. 1952 Winchester 97. YES, felt smoother and less kick. Will do it again to the next one.
  4. Using Titegroup, cause I got a bunch. Will need to get WST later cause GJ says it the best. Yep tried a pound of WST and it was cleaner and meter well.
  5. A lot of dentist on the wire today!
  6. So HOB nail lumber jack logger boots may not be the perfect choice. got it.
  7. Howdy; Modern Winchester ,WW 38-55 stamped mike to 2.075 length then trimmed to 2.010 for use in H and R This brass was purchased a few years back from a gun store in bags sealed from Winchester. The length of brass match Lyman reloading book 49, pages 281 and 283
  8. Howdy; H and R chamber is as stated short for a 38-55. So I shortened the 38-55 brass WW cases to 375 Winchester length and loaded .379 diameter bullets. This worked for my needs.

      Well, the picture on Bullseye's site shows a walnut stocked gun, and implies this is a new import batch.   You're in Canada, which does not prohibit import from Norinco company.  U.S. black listed imports from them 15 years ago, so IAC has imported 97s to US from that time.


      IF this is new production with all the improvements that the IAC batches had from 2006 forward, that is a killer price!   A big IF. 


      You probably want to get a look at them - a close look.


      You may want a standard gun rather than a trench gun if using it for Cowboy.    And a trench does not add anything but style points for WB.

  10. WELL Howdy; I could not resist. Ran down and got the Winchester 73. So for now just looking to shoot it. I like the idea of not dumping huge dollars. Please let me know what you have found out with these rifles. I have been a Marlin only shooter for years. Near Toronto Ontario, Eastern time zone.

    Thank you


  11. Hello from Canada. always enjoy your stuff. Best  wishes  VICIOUS

      Thank you!  Glad to hear B)

  12. Marlin 1894 have there own set of needs. So it is just simple and easy to use a 250 RNFP and shoot.
  13. Howdy; 250 RNFP, PITA to try and get 200 to not blow powder into your eyes over the bolt.
  14. HOWDY; I use 19 lb hammer springs on a original Blackhawk for silhouette shooting as less spring gets slow hammer fall.
