  1. I have a fairly good 1897 (made 1947) that I use for WB. It came with the 30 inch barrel. I really don’t want to cut down this barrel. In the past with other shotguns I have tried swapping barrels with the Barrel Extension & Adjusting Sleeve as a whole unit , but this often led to lock up problems. Do I have to retain the original Barrel Extension & Adjusting Sleeve from the action? Is the barrel threaded into the Barrel Extension & Adjusting Sleeve? (Videos I’ve seen are inconclusive). Thanks Col. Del Rio
  2. Greetings, A pal has a Marlin/Remington 1895 in 45-70. He is looking for parts such a better firing pin among other pieces. Any good places for such items? Col. Del Rio
  3. Howdy, I recently got a used SDB. The powder bar is not cycling properly therefore I am not getting the powder to drop into the shell case. The horizontal movement is supposed to be actuated by the failsafe rod. However the rod is not traveling far enough to push the bar back and forth the whole way. The lock-links are not pushing the bar all the way. I have stripped and cleaned everything. I am a rookie at reloading so any advice is welcome. V/R Col. Del Rio
  4. I recently obtained a 20 gauge Over/Under Citori. It is fitted for screw in chokes (which are missing). I want to use it for both Trap and Skeet. Question 1: What chokes are recommended for Trap and for Skeet? Question 2: Which barrel should be used first for Skeet? Question 3: Which barrel should be used for Trap (singles)?
  5. Guys, I did not want to start a debate. Note, in Hawaii gunsmiths are harder to find than Republicans! I have to do what I can with what I got. We don't have long range matches here--no long ranges. We might in the future on private land. I do appreciate all the input though. Mahalo (thanks)
  6. Anyone shoot in the "Optics" category? I am thinking of mounting an old fashion scope on a Browning 1885 in 45/70. What brands/types are recommended? I know I have many related questions, but I have never had a rifle such as this. It has a full stock / wrist so there is no exposed tang for a traditional sight. I am a bit reluctant about drilling into the wood of the stock and would rather fight a better way to set up this gun for fun. V/R Col. Del Rio
  7. Thanks! This helps. I am trying to figure out what kind of sights (or scope) to mount on a Browning 1885. It does not have an exposed tang.
  8. What are the rules for sights for long range shooting? Is there a Handbook? Or is this not a pure SASS event? (There is a lot of stuff on the web, none of it helpful)
  9. Is there a difference between the IAC 97 clone and the Norinco 97 clone?
  10. I'd like to get a wire spring. Who sells them? Or are these home made?
  11. Greetings All, I want to replace the Left & Right side extractors and the Ejector Spring on an old 97 pump. Any recommended sellers? Thanks Col. Del Rio
  12. Thanks for the info! Was it hard to do? I will have to do it myself.
  13. Has anyone ever mounted a Vernier type sight on a Browning 1885 without an exposed tang? Marble Sights has one that is supposed to work, but before I get the item, I'd like to hear if anyone has done this themselves. (I live in Hawaii and the only gunsmith I could find did not want to try to do this). Col. Del Rio
  14. Anyone know anything about this person?
