SASS Wire Vet

SASS Wire Vet (1/1)



  1. The the single extractor 87 in the photo I posted is in the 28,000 number range. I just typed the number in the Winchester serial number search box on the Winchester site and it came back 1890. I'm to lazy to get out the three double extractor models I have to look at the serial numbers. So, sometime after 1890.
  2. Got an email from Rock Island auctions this morning. They are saying this is an opportunity to own a well documented Savage trials gun for between $6,500 and $9,500. Most go for far more than that but this one is not in as good of condition as others they have sold. Something I learned on their website is that 181 of the 280 guns used in the trials were repurchased by Savage, completely refinished and sold to the public. For some reason this one was repurchased but never refinished. Thus its less than pristine condition.
  3. Lump, the later and more common Winchester 87s had two extractors. The action on the ChiCom 87s is the same size as an original 87 which is why Cap put a note in the box that Winchester AAs were the preferred ammo. AAs are on average 1/16" shorter than an STS or Gun Club. The action is no where near the size of a 1901. Here are a few photos. The easiest way to identify an early 87 is to look at the fore end. The older ones have a solid front mag tube mount and one screw in the forearm. The later 87s had a barrel band and two screws in the forearm. The early 87s had one large extractor. The plate on the other side is to knock down the carrier. It is rigid and does not move. A view from the top. The later 87s have two smaller extractors. A view from the top. For SASS shooting, using modern plastic hulls, I prefer the old single extractor version. It is easier to load and extraction with light loaded SASS ammo is not an issue.
  4. Even the French have broken out their balloon force which was first launched in 1783.
  5. I was just watching a news report on an attack on a Russian air base 300 kilometers inside Russia. I grabbed a screen shot off the report. That sure looks like a bi-plane. Maybe that is why the Russian air force has been so ineffective in Ukraine.
  6. A private citizen cannot ship handguns through USPS, FedEx and some other carriers. BUT a firearm being returned to the manufacturer for repair or warranty work is in a different category.
  7. The same reason we now have "atmospheric rivers," "bomb cyclones" and other stuff that has appeared the past few years. To make news and re-inforce the narrative of climate change. I remember in the old days here in the desert we had dust storms. Now they are haboobs. What boob thought of this? We also use to have spring rain. Now it is a monsoon. Monsoons are what you have in India - 40 days and 40 nights of rain.
  8. It was a movie made for Apple TV+. It had a very limited theatrical release in just a few cities. It never played in my area. When I bought my new IPhone I got a trial subscription to Apple TV+ so I watched Greyhound and Ted Lasso.
  9. Website says they are still available. http://www.pioneergunworks.com/winchester-rifle-parts-22
