Welcome! Keep the wife, ditch the gun. After shooting 1873's I wanted a 66. I bought a Miroku thinking it would be superior to the Ubertis. Its sure enough a fine riflegun BUT, I dont like how hard it is to close the lever the last bit, not a huge deal, the finish was superb, couldnt wait to shoot it. I ONLY shoot real black powder about 35g, a Big Lube .428 bullet with plenty lube. Second match, so this is bullets number 61-120 through it, the barrel bulged. Not sure why or how, maybe my fault with excessive oil in the barrel BUT, Heres the kicker, CANT GET A NEW BARREL, Winchester/Miroku does not support the gun. There are no more. My only choice is to have a barrel made and it aint cheap! I elected to purchase a Uberti Octagon (My Miroku is round). Thats when I found out no one has any parts for this wall hanger. Some day when I win the lottery, I'll have a 38-40 barrel made for it but for now she sure looks purty hangin on the wall collecting dust.
