  1. I would go with an 1893 Marlin in 32-40 (because I have one.). It’s smoother than the Win M94 in 30-30 or the Win M95 in 30-40 Krag.
  2. OLG and Pat Riot have it right. Take the right cartridge guide out, making sure not to lose any shim already there, and put in a shim. I use a good grade of bond typing paper for making that type of shim. It’s about .005” thick so one or two shims ought to do it. Steel or brass shims work too but are much harder to cut out. Back 20 or so years ago when 92’s were the go-to gun for SASS stovepiping was a common problem and this was the fix.
  3. I’m glad you got the firing pin! We can always trust the US Postal Service. Right?
  4. Warden, I don’t have a bp load recommendation, but I’d suggest not exceeding the original pressures for the 32 Colt cartridge. As I’m sure you know (I’ve attached a photo of my 92 Marlin action with the lifter removed showing how weak the lockup is) only the lever bearing on the bolt holds the action closed. The load I was using was 115 grain bullet sized .312” with 1.8 gr Bullseye. Not BP. The starting load in my 45th edition Lyman Reloading Handbook was 1.3 gr Bullseye with a 115 gr cast bullet. 1.8 gr Bullseye was the max load. I’d recommend staying with the starting load
  5. The gun will work like a 66 with the lever safety removed. A lighter spring will make for more positive hammer fall. By that I mean that a less firm grip holding the lever closed is needed to disengage the lever safety. I find that when trying to shoot fast, the lever safety prevents early trigger pulls. An early trigger pull usually won’t result in an out of battery discharge because the cartridge and primer are not yet in contact with the bolt face and the firing pin won’t reach the primer. The hammer will follow the bolt forward though and NOT ignite the primer, causing even
  6. I think I still have a firing pin for an 1891 Marlin if you need one. I ordered it thinking they could be easily modified to fit an 1892 - wrong. Anyway if you need it, you can have it. Let me know. Also if you still want an 1892, I have an extra one I’d part with.
  7. I have two of the Marlin 92’s, one of which I converted to 32 S&W Long (it will take shorts too). As NKJ said be sure to slug the bore and use the right sized bullet. When I converted mine several years ago, Gun Parts Corp (Numrich Arms) was selling replacement barrels for the Marlin 92’s. I bought one and rechambered it to 32 S&W Long but didn’t slug the bore. Turned out it was a .308” barrel and I got over pressure signs when I shot it with mild 32 Long loads. I put the original bbl back on, also rechambered, and it works fine with the 32 S&W Long rounds. The loc
  8. Thanks. I made it out of the forend from a Rossi 92 carbine that someone had restocked. I pulled it out of the burn pile at a gun shop.
  9. Sorry about the delay answering your question. I used the same spacer stick as you would in one without the forend. You could make a follower with an extended nose to do the same thing.
  10. Fireball is fast but not enough to have 4 empties in the air with a reload?
  11. I’ve never thought of my guns as a “group” or “collection” either. Mine are more an “accumulation”.
  12. Take the stock off and try the screw from the “wrong” side (the bottom). That should clean up any minor damage to the threads on the “right” side. Then try the screw with the stock off. Then when you put the stock back on, tap it firmly to make sure it’s fully seated. If that fails, run an appropriately sized drill through the hole to clean it up.
  13. My “accumulation” of 32-20’s, all of which I have used in matches along with other calibers over the past 25 or so years of CAS. The bottom pair of pistols (Revolvers but pistols is easier to type) are 3rd gen Colts from the Custom Shop in 32-20, nickel plated, consecutively numbered with real ivory’s from Colt. The other ‘73’s are Uberti, AWA and Armi San Macro. The Ruger is a Buckeye Special (32-20 & 32 Mag Convertable); and the derringer is custom from American Derringer in 32-20. The rifles, all 32-20 of course, from the bottom: Winchester ‘92 short rifle with a Winches
