  1. Actually no, it originally contained 40gr of black powder but that changes over the years as well as with certain manufactured cases. Powder compression also changed. Modern example https://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o25/w30wcf/38-40 bp5.jpg
  2. Here is the deal. It is an original 73 chambered in 44-40. Forcing cone is cut for BP, and it probably has a tight chamber...and probably bores .424-.427....lean to getting the 38-40 because the 44-40 may be limited to certain load combinations. The 44-40 is a love hate relationship....no not like that...it's like a Jeep, you ether love them or hate them, there is no in between.
  3. Hey, why was the 44 WCF over stamped 44-40? Just curious :-) Sweet rifle!
  4. Yeap, since SASS shooters are so caught up in "speed", rather than concentrating on keeping the thumb where it should be, certainly should not be allowed in CAS matches. Just because it is a bomb waiting to go off in certain hands from certain irresponsible techniques doesn't mean it is really a bad shotgun. Handloading is more dangerous than that thing is!! Of course, in the hands of the wrong shooter........
  5. Sounds to me that as long as all parts are working, it is safe to shoot....probably just don't want to shoot it repeatedly in sporting events rather than hunting.
  6. Last batch of 500 44-40 I got from them, the lube fell off half the bullets.
  7. Several situations in Georgia (because that was were I was from at the time) were warded off do to openly carrying. If it were a bad thing, no cop ever would openly carry or even wear a uniform. "Visual Stimulation" is always a good thing........ No matter...you can't stop an assassination either way.
  8. WALMART= MADE IN CHINA...nearly 95% of their dry good products.
  9. If I read correctly, my first post there was September 06, 2008, 06:41:10 PM , last post there was February 04, 2013, 02:04:55 PM
  10. Extremely valuable 44-40 information on that site from the late John Kort! aka w44wcf
