I smoked a lot of close in dove with that open choke 20 until my grandfather decided in the 80s he wanted it back for his motor home self defense scattergun. Fast forward another decade and upon my grandfathers passing I again became the keeper of the family Mod 17! Both my

  3. On occasion I use my wife’s hammered 103 year old LC Smith that was here grandads and dads gun. The only reason I’ve never cut it is the sentimental attachment that goes along with this particular gun. The 30” barrels won’t win any agility contests, but they aren’t as big a problem as they seem once the timer goes beep. I have had the chambers reamed for modern 2 3/4” shells and run light cowboy and trap loads in it without any issues. You should check and verify that the barrels are steel which will be stamped something like “Royal Steel”on the underside. I enjoy shooting ours and am aware
  4. Yes.... and no. The Henry internals and 73 are pretty much the same, but bolt extensions, hammer springs, hammer, trigger etc are the 66 Yellowboy style. There are parts schematics for all of the Uberti toggle guns on the VTI website.
  5. Think they were known as Ray-Bar front sights maybe.

  13. I asked one of the new owners what the plans were for it, and it is in their plans for it to be available for use as a chapel . Interestingly he mentioned he is an ordained minister!
  14. SASS the organization leased Founders Ranch, and did not own it. One could logically assume that the cancellation of EOT 2020 and relocating EOT 2021 had an impact on finances of SASS continuing to lease Founders and the owners selling the property. The new owners were upbeat on continued use of the faculties for CAS and expanding it for other shooting disciplines.
  15. The OP is asking about data for Tin Star ( N32C ) Having used both, I can vouch they are different powders, from the same manufacturer.
