Thanks for all of your information about my rifle. When I bought this rifle in 1992, there were not a lot of choices at the time. I’ve been using it for CAS since that year(1992). If I load it with .45 Schofield I can fit 10 in the magazine tube. But unfortunately, I do not reload for that caliber. With my load I can get 9 in the tube in 45 Long Colt. I guess I’ll just keep using this rifle. It has never failed me yet and it is still in beautiful condition. Besides, a new rifle costs over a $1000.00. Thanks again Lawman Pete!
