  1. Amen thanks to all of you past and present, living, injured or gone that have protected the United States. For those of you with relatives who have served Fold3.com is free this weekend. I plan on looking up my relatives in the 1st Ohio Infantry & Calvary, Spanish American war, WW II, and my Dad from the Korean War. God bless all the military and their families.
  2. On the other models the trigger guards are removable, have to believe they also are here on this model as well. But I will ask that as well.
  3. Are the other barrels still interchangeable? I would rather a .44mag/spcl barrel on it. Will call company on Monday to see as well.
  4. Sorry for not seeing this sooner. I will warn you that it could be painful from a pressure standpoint. I had to have it after the second detached retina so the scar tissue in healing wouldn’t pull a different part of the retina away. In my case the doctor had me in a chair and the laser was part of his head mount. I could feel the “punch” of the laser as he got rid of the scar tissue and floaters. There won’t be any downtime but you will need your favorite headache medicine. Good luck.
  5. Thanks for the additional advice. Don’t misunderstand, l am not going to go thru boxes of 45-70 cartridges, too expensive and not necessary, I want to shoot for the experience and for special hunting and competitions, not for punishment. Appreciate all the feedback from all posters.
  6. Again thanks for the advice, but I only reload .44 spcl/mag on my little Square D. I will look to make sure that I am not getting to strong a round in the .30-06.
  7. Thank you for your suggestion. I did buy a pack of Hornady Leverevolution to shoot in the 1886, figuring that the 24” barrel and rest of the gun’s weight will take up a lot of the recoil. I was also concerned with shooting a P17 and an Enfield Jungle Carbine both in a .30 caliber rifle round thinking that I would also get a lot of recoil from them as well.
  8. Update for those of you in my or close to my condition. Just saw my surgeon and optometrist and both said that I could go ahead and shoot with no negative effects to my right eye where I suffered the double detached retina. So I will soon go and enjoy my 25th anniversary present from my wife, my 1886 rifle. Thank you all for you relevant advice from your own personal experience and Wolf Bane for making me aware enough to ask the question with his wonderful episode of hunting water buffalo in Africa with a 45-70 lever action.
  9. I am sorry for your loss, especially one so tragic. Our thoughts and prayers are with you with the wish you possibly can get over the loss and possibly consider a replacement to assist you to get over your loss.
  10. Ed’s Red? Homemade? Any chance you can share the recipe? My wife hates the smell of Hoppes and I have been trying to find a good substitute. Thanks in advance.
  11. Got one and haven’t shot it yet. Thanks for the warning and the solutions!
  12. You didn’t hurt my feelings, I don’t own one, but you might have someone else who does, not sure, but why take the chance? But at least you are not a “poser”, you actually have shot one and are entitled to a more “cordial” opinion possibly? But hey what do I know, I was raised not to say anything that might be mean and hurt someone. Saying something more along the lines that in your opinion you find no value in them but to each his own is a kinder, gentler way instead of calling someone else’s rifle a canoe paddle? And thank you for all those kind blessings and telling me that Jesus has me in his book. Glad you are aware of all that and can tell us our status. But between you and me I am still working on staying in His good graces. It sure why anyone on this forum feels the need to criticize others’ equipment but it happens still and I would like to suggest it doesn’t have to be.
  13. I also would like to suggest that you change the date in your title to 1860 as that is the model of the pistol and could possibly get more views?
  14. I agree completely with on the 9422! Got it for my son from Bass on sale for $350 10 years ago and wished I bought another in .22 mag! If I had the $700-1100 now I still would but I have an 1895 that I have to buy first!
  15. Please don’t hold back, tell us how you really feel! And I bet you have never even shot one. But variety is what has made this game even better than back in the 90’s when everyone was telling those who listen that Marlins were the best and it would be insane to compete with anything else. Thank God and all the firearms companies didn’t listen to people with similar opinions to yours.
  16. Ok I agree sorry I missed the post and possibly someone would pay more than 1500? As you said it is only a game and everyone should be allowed to buy what they want?
  17. What are you talking about? What costs 3,600? I myself had been looking to get a Henry 1860 for around 1,800-1,900 but then a Used Uberti fell in my lap for $750. To be honest the only gun right now that you usually won’t lose money on is a Colt SAA, hell I have seen the Cowboys sold for $800-900! Let the pard buy what he wants and stop being a gun snob! If you can afford Winchester’s and Colts God Bless you but the rest of us have to start a little lower to what we can afford!
  18. Also no one mentioned to you caliber, and I usually let the poster decide but the cheapest caliber is.38 special and I believe most competitive? Marlins have been known for their ability to accept overall length (OAL) of .38 spcl cartridges in .357 mag rifles, but 92s can be modified too. Back in the day the most competitive shooters were shooting .38’s in Marlins and whatever pistols they could find usually the old model Vaqueros. I personally love Winchesters in. .44 caliber and have never shot with being competitive in mind, I just love to shoot. So you might want consider cartridge caliber as well, although there is nothing to say you can’t shoot different calibers. Enjoy.
  19. What about Betsy(I believe that’s what he called his Remington derringer) at least it looked like a Remington. The derringer was in the shotgun case with the Greeners, one for him and one for Brice Cabot. What derringer are you going to use ? I like the look of American instead of a Bond, but that is just me. You have my appreciation and my envy as a fellow Duke fan.
  20. Thought I had replied to this post before but don’t see it now. Broomstick, please don’t let some of the posts intimidate you! Go for your choice of leather. Get what will make YOU happy!
  21. Just saw 30 seconds over Tokyo on TCM over the weekend, wished I had known. I had a chance to meet some of the Flying Tigers in a Holiday In lounge back in 1988 and was blown away how much fun these gentlemen and their wives were. Yes all these men need to be remembered.
  22. Thank you sir for responding. Love your show, learn a lot and was asking if it really could/had happened to others. My surgeon is a young guy who doesn’t shoot. So before I put my right cheek against the stock of a 24” Moriku Winchester 1886 rifle and pull the trigger on some Hornady rounds I thought I better see if this is a possibility. The two detached retinas were cause by the healing from cats to surgery in the one eye I have. And each time I was in front of a screen at work recording journal entries. With an eyeball shaped like a football I was later told after the fact that the detachment is possible, painless and basically looks like a shade covering your eye. So again thank you all for your responses. If anything I will shoot from the hip of the latest addition to my lever action collection.
