    Steve - Is your 3-round reloading tube faster than loading individual rounds straight into the chamber one at a time (a la Winchester M1897 shotguns)?

    Yes, you only have handle one extra object rather then digging out three loose rounds. Keep in mind you must handle the carbine/rifle and magazine spring with one hand while loading with the other. I carry the reload tube in a repro Dyer pouch.

  2. I have one of the early .45 Schofield guns, and it would hold 8, but I usually only load 7 for better reliability. I reload on the clock with small copper tube that holds 3 rounds like a miniature Blakeslee tube. As mentioned earlier, Spencers are very OAL dependent. One of the nice things about the .45 Schofield Spencers was for reenacting, you could load very cheap blanks using .44 magnum brass.

     I can’t imagine what it would cost to pull it from a lake. 

    I don't know how much it adds to the cost but there are environmental regulations that need to be met, mainly to prevent fuel leakage.

    Hey, Tom... does that thing use en bloc clips?  :huh:


    And how 'bout a picture when you get it back!  :)


    Edit:  If it does use clips, do they look like this?



    No, that’s a clip for a Mannlicher style magazine the Mannlicher Schoenauer has a Schoenauer style rotary magazine.

  5. Glass lenses can shatter into sharp fragments. I have a nice “dueling” scar as a result of one of my glass lenses shattering from a freak impact, I was lucky not to have lost my eye. Now I only wear polycarbonate lenses.

    The recoil shield with the sight looks like it might be a John Gren conversion. Usually he marked them,is there the name Gren or Spokane Washington anywhere (Usually on the barrel somewhere)? I think Dave Anderson (American Frontier Firearms) might have done some like this also but I think he marked them. Is the firing pin in the plate or on the hammer? 

    It does look something like a Gren, though I don't think he did rear sights like that, mine has a notched hammer for a sight. Also, he marked his guns.

  8. Forty, before Steyr added more American chambering in the 1924 model, the magazines were designed to the profile of the round the gun was chambered in, so if you rechambered the rifle, you would also most likely need to modify the magazine.

    On a side note , do they make a conversion cylinder to convert a pietta 58 remington 44 to 44.40?  

    While called a .44, the "58" Remington's bore is .454 so .44-40 would not work.

    You're correct as POTUS he signed it into law but he didn't come up with it. He was forced to because he was a wimp! All the bills are written by Democrats as far as I know. That's why I said 99.9% :P

    Actually, it was an executive order.

    I can’t think of one Republican that came up with a gun control bill!

    Not a bill, but George Bush Sr. was responsible for the 1989 Assault Weapons Import Ban.
