  1. Howdy! Have a pair of Renalde spurs made out of Aluminum for sale. They are in wonderful condition; all the more amazing considering that they are atleast 40 years old! Heel band opening is 3 1/8 inches. They were used as an indoor decoration only by me. They are extremely lightweight and I expect one could wear them all day without fatigue. $68 shipped to your door; USPS MO or personal check ok. (The discoloration below the button swinger is artifact only!)
  2. Second using dryer softening sheets; they decrease the dust very well and keep the tumbler cleaner also.
  3. I agree with Johnny Meadows about the Rossi 92. The Marlin 94 is another option, in my opinion. I have no experience with the Henry Big boy, so can't comment (but am not a fan of tubular fed centerfire rifles, or Henry's advertising strategy in the past.) As for the Miroku 92, if you are talking about the newly made ones, I would avoid them. They are a total BEAR to lever with their rebounding hammer lawyer parts (they don't work like an original Winchester 92, Rossi 92 or the Browning/Miroku 92s from the 1980s, which all work like the original 92 and lever much easier).
  4. Johnny Meadows works on '92s; you can reach him via this wire. He's a little south of Phoenix, but still in AZ.
  5. With the rebounding hammer, they are very stiff to lever even compared to a Rossi 92. (The Miroku/Browning 92s from the 80s are a different story; they were built like original Win 92s, without rebounding hammers or tang safeties and lever much easier.) As for light primer hits/failure to fire a round, the only rebounding hammer Miroku I had that did that was an 86; I eventually sold it off. I've read where that has happened with the rebounding hammer 92s, but it seems to be much less often a problem.
  6. Ok, someone heard me and I have just now seen a Ruger 38-40 cylinder that someone might be willing to sell! http://www.rugerforum.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=292505&p=2918590#p2918590
  7. Have never seen a Ruger 38-40 cylinder available by itself. You could possibly find a 357 cylinder and have Mr. Bowen rechamber it.
  8. It's called 'pitcher mouthing' and occurs as the case is extracted and ejected; the rim of the case mouth can catch on the top inside edge of the barrel as it is being pulled out of the chamber and kicked out of the action. I've had it occur with some 44-40s, but I have not had it happen with any other calibers. Like the other 'Johnson' said, have the ejector spring replaced and that should improve if it is a problem. Check out this thread as well:
  9. Hi, They would be fine for CAS or casual plinking in either caliber. They are lightweight, easy to use, pretty reliable and very 'cowboy looking' given all the western TV programs and films that made use of them. Pick the one you reload for as ammo is expensive and hard to find in normal times (even harder now) for 44-40, 44mag cowboy loads and 44 special. (If you want to go cheaper ammo-wise (factory or handloads), hold out for a 38/357 caliber one.) (Sometimes with the dual caliber models (38/357 and 44mag/44 spec), you need to make longer than normal OAL rounds if shooting the
  10. Actually Pete, Pistol 44mag and Pistol 44 special both have .429 grove diameter per SAAMI. Rifle 44 mag has .431 grove diameter per SAAMI specs.
  11. Hi! Something like the bottom knife in the pictures? (It has a 4 inch blade and a 4 inch handle):
  12. Had a Win 94 AE Trapper in 44mag when I first started SASS. It shot both 44 mag and 44 spec without any jamming. Accuracy was a problem and I think that had to do with the idiosyncracies of the 44mag caliber (44 mag barrel dimensions are larger than 44 special per SAMMI literature!); I didn't match bullet diameter to barrel well back then. I wasn't a speedster then (or now!), so it being slower than some other rifles out there at that time (like the Rossi '92 and then the Marlin '94) didn't bother me. I didn't like loading on the clock, though, so predominantly used 44 special ammo, which al
