  1. Interesting photo. Just FYI, a tintype and a carte de visite are two different things with the tintype obviously being metal and the carte de visite being on card stock.
  2. Yeah, It gets so hot here in South Louisiana that you can hardly stand to be out there. Much less holding on to a pair of pistols. Checkered grips help some. Have heard good things about McClades hand chalk.
  3. I have not done it on an 86 but on my 92s the way I lightened the loading gate is to take out the spring and relieve some metal along each side. The more metal you take off the lighter it will be but you don't want to take off too much. The 86 may be similar. Edit: Actually looks like the loading gate on an 86 is completely different from the 92. I'd bet you can still relieve some metal from the main spring (Part number 39) though and get it lighter.
  4. Now that is a beautiful Marlin. Details?
  5. Didn't know him but prayers for his family and friends during their hard time.
  6. Now that is a great looking hat.
  7. Just wanted to say that JFN is a good seller and the shipping was fast. The grips fit my gun very well. Thanks.
  8. Thanks for the photo and info Larsen. That ramp looks much better. Gives me an idea of what I'm shooting for as I try to correct this one.
  9. I plan on trying to knock it down some.
  10. Yes. I put one shell in to be able to see where it is catching and it is def stopping at the place where it would be to catch that rim. Its a very small rim but I do believe that is the culprit. Was using Winchester brass.
  11. I actually did just this. I wish I would have seen your comment sooner. Could have saved me a couple min.
  12. The gap is in the back though. I’ll post some photos after while. The gap though is between the rear of the cylinder and the back from where the hammer is.
