  1. Winchester 1895 built in 1905 chambered in .38-72 WCF with a 26 inch octagonal barrel. Action body gone from blue to mottled grey with some blotching, screws decent. Barrel exterior blue is pretty good, markings are all very clean. The good news is that inside it is exceptionally clean with a pristine bore and chamber and it shoots and feeds very well! Excellent trigger. Groove diameter is the usual .378-.379". With soft .378" 275 grain lead bullets it shoots quite nicely with either black or smokeless at factory load speeds of 1400-1500 fps. With .375" Hawk jacketed bullets of either 235 or 300 grains and smokeless it also shoots exceptionally well, go figure. I've taken two yearling bison with stout loads and the 300 grain Hawk with one shot each. $1600 shipped to your FFL or C&R.
  2. Hello All, I am new to lever guns and have an overwhelming urge to get into it for all the right reasons. My use would be mostly at the range, perhaps some Cowboy Action Shooting and the occasional hunt - turkey, hog, deer and the like. Based on that and cost I have decided that .357 Mag would be my caliber of choice. I originally landed on a Model 1873 but I have developed some concerns that the rifle can handle .357 Mag for extended periods and I have learned that the 1892 is a much stronger action. With all of that I can't decide between two guns as noted in the title. I like the look and feel of the Winchester but I am not a fan of the safety on the receiver - somehow that just doesn't look right. With the Browning I like the thought of a classic from the maker himself - I know it's made in Japan - but I have read that it is more true than the Winchester. With that I thought I would reach out to the community and get your thought to which you would pick and why. Thank you.
  3. Howdy, folks! I've got a question for y'all. I've only been shooting CAS for six months, and I'm wanting to get into B-Western. My main reason is that I already have the clothes for it; they're my everyday wear. What's the best rifle for B-Western that's NOT a Marlin? Fastest, most reliable, longest lasting? I'm a lefty, and every Marlin I've shot throws the hot brass right onto my right arm, which gets old fast. I was considering a Rossi M92, IF I can find one. Price is also a deciding factor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I have two Winchester 1897 shotguns for sale. Just have to many to fit in the safe. One is a compilation of several guns, has a new stock and works well. It has a hole in the receiver from a past repair and is definitely not stock, it has a Cowboys and Indians ejector and past action job. I want $400 for it and I'll pay shipping to your FFL. The other is in good shape. The stock is worn and the forestock does not match. The gun ejects fair but could use a new quality ejector. I want $300 for that one shipped to your FFL. Take em both for $650 or make me an offer! As far as trading goes, I could use a 1911 I could use for Traditional Wild Bunch. I have pictures I can email on request till I figure out how to post them here.
