  1. There nothing more important than to continue with those special time honored traditions. Keep the oven warm, Grizz..... I'm coming over ..........Widder
  2. Good Job, MONGO. If you're like Slater and myself, you will probably burn up 500-1000 rounds with that new pistol this weekend. ENJOY. ..........Widder
  3. Two of my favorite revolvers is the S&W 617 (10 shot .22) and the 648 (.22 mag). (I hope I got those model #'s correct). I'm still being tempted to get another 617 every time I see one. ..........Widder
  4. I checked out YouTube and there are a handful of John Denver Christmas shows. One of those specials is titled something like: John Denver Christmas Montana Skies. The particular video shows a Christmas tree decorated with 'candles' and folks sitting around on hay bales. Clint Black is also featured. I didn't catch the date of that show. BUT, John's 1975/1976 Christmas special has a similar setting where he sings Silent Night at the end of the show. Here is one of those videos: I could not get the Silent Night video to post. But if you get on Youtube, type in "S
  5. WOW, great story. Thanks for sharing. It might be possible to YouTube some of John Denver' Christmas specials and see that scene again. Think I will try to look it up. MERRY CHRISTMAS. ..........Widder
  6. Hey Jabez, I figured that a feller from Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma, Wyoming, etc... coming up to Canada to meet some 'real Cowboys' is like some feller from Tennessee or Kentucky traveling up to downtown Manhattan to learn about moonshine..... P.S. - I'm getting a nice Browning Buckmark Field Target .22 pistol for Christmas. Right now, its all packaged up and wrapped in pretty paper sitting inside the safe. I haven't even got to look or touch it yet..... but I know its there. MERRY CHRISTMAS my Friend! ,,,,,,,,,,Widder (Walkin in a WidderWonderLand)
  7. WELL, here are your answers. Both of these folks have good reputations in their work. I've handled some of Broomsticks work and wouldn't hesitate to use him. ALSO, I have owned 3 sets of Ruger pistols that Snake Oil George & Creek County Kid put Octagon barrels on and their work is impeccable. My 3.5" OCTAGON barrel Ruger .32 H&R pistols are a thing of beauty. PLUS, the Kid is gonna put me a nice 20" custom BULL barrel on my Ruger model 77/.17 Hornet soon. Good luck in your efforts. ..........Widder
  8. Your a fine Pard, Jabez....... even if you shoot that nasty BP..... I never made any offers to Henry but I did try to slightly modify one of their new HBB Steel's. I made the rifle function smoother and a little more efficient. But the time and effort wasn't worth the results. It would run about 9 rounds with no glitches at good speeds but there was always that odd round that disrupted the flow of the rifle. I won't try to work on any other Henry BB's because I seem to stay busy with Marlin's and .22 Henry rifles. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you! ..........Widder
  9. The story I heard down at the local Co-Op was ... "Jim No Horse got kicked in the head by a Clidesdale and broke his leg.......The CLYDESDALE's leg"........ Hope you heal well my friend. ..........Widder
  10. A barrel maker like Shilen might make a special one for you with one of their barrels. They made a special barrel for me a few years back AND they also attached it to the receiver. There are some gunsmiths who produce octagon barrels, but mostly for pistols, due to length restrictions of their machinery. My first step would be call Henry firearms and ask who makes their barrels, or even produces the blanks. That might help you somewhat. ..........Widder
  11. Thanks for the 12/20 update. Hope you keep getting better PWB. MERRY CHRISTMAS, Pard. ..........Widder
  12. I bet it don't get locked or pulled because no names or party affiliations were made. Thanks for posting. ..........Widder
  13. Remington contacted me about my 1894 work but so far, the communications have been limited. One of their employees have one of my Widdermatics, which I modified on a new 1894 in .38/.357. When I returned that rifle back to their employee (fully modified), I documented 9 QA issues in that rifle. They are aware of this rifle and of those QA issues I found. As for any other communications, they have indicated a desire to talk with me again. This contact was initiated by Remington, not me. I did express my willingness to help them, basically with problems they seem to have wi
  14. INDEED. I get these results using a few different powders like H110, AA9, and my favorite..... LilGun. ..........Widder
  15. LARSEN, You and I are just alike in that WE BOTH are in charge of our house. Anytime I want to scrub my floors, my wife knows better than to try and stop me or discourage me..... ..........Widder
  16. ANY powder usable for the .45 ACP for an appropriate 160-180 grain LEAD bullet is good for the C45S cartridge. I used 160-180 grain bullets with Clays and Red Dot for 3+ years and loved it. I have recently tried Clean Shot and also found it a good powder choice. And these powders were used in my Ruger 3.5" barrel pistols. I haven't tried any of those powders you listed, so therefore, I don't have much to say about them in the C45S case. ..........Widder
  17. Lost Vaquero, The carrier in the CBC is basically the same as the carrier in non CBC models, respective of caliber of course. The problem that may occur is that some carriers have bad timing, even when new from the factory, and will give erratic performance with shorter OAL ammo. ..........Widder
  18. The Marlin 1894 does not have to be short stroked in order to handle the C45S cartridge, nor does a separate carrier need to be utilized. The 'impossible' function of the Widdermajik (not Widdermatic) allows the rifle to function with the C45S, 45 Schofield and the .45 Colt cartridge lengths interchangeably. p.s. - I have been told by a couple gunsmiths and numerous Marlin owners that the function of the WIddermajik is suppose to be impossible..... until those same folks actually operate one. ..........Widder
  19. J.Frank, in reference to your last question, case length does not matter. BUT, OAL of your ammo does matter because your initial timing is critical when loading shorter ammo. Hope this helps. ..........Widder
  20. BAMAKID, I've owned about 6 model 41's since the mid 70's. Wish I had kept a couple of them. Ten's of thousands of rounds and none of them ever failed. I could buy a new one thru the S&W Performance Center but I honestly think my Buckmarks will more than keep me happy. ..........Widder
  21. WOW, Congratulations to both Seamus and Sue on their new family members. Seamus, this Saturday, my daughter will open the original box with a Winchester 9422 inside. As pristine as when I bought it in April 1993....... at her birth. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! ..........Widder (Walkin in a WidderWonderLand)
  22. Mongo, You will probably really like the Victory with that option. Volquartsen is also making aftermarket barrels for the Victory, which give you even more options. See you in the spring time... when the weather is warmer..... ..........Widder
  23. Howby CR. Pretty much. Available load data and components are numerous. And because a lot of Pards own, shoot and reload for the 9mm, a lot of good info is from experience shooters. Hope You and Yours have a Merry Christmas. ..........Widder
  24. MONGO, I've heard a couple good comments about the Victory .22 pistol. I haven't heard anything bad. Slater and I both own Browning Buckmarks. He has the Contour URX in both 7.25" and 5.5" I own the Buckmark Carbon Fiber with 4.0" and the Buckmark Firld Target in 5.5" The Buckmark is an outstanding .22 pistol. Get into YouTube and check out all the videos on all types of .22 pistols and those videos might help you decide before you buy. ..........Widder
