Hoss

AWA Lightning

Recommended Posts

Got my 44-40 lightning today. Ran 30 rounds thru it that I already had made up for my 1860 Henry. Length was just right, no jams! I'm looking forward to shooting it more, probably primarily as a WB rifle.

 

Does anybody have a copy of the AWA paperwork that comes with them new....parts diagram, exploded view, cleaning tips, operating manual etc? If so, I sure would appreciate a copy.

 

Thanks!

Good luck, its a great rifle. Mine is a white lightning in 38/40. AWA about 10 years old now, one screw on ejectors cracked. Has been my main match rifle since new.

operating manual etc?

Hoss, key to Lightning chambering & extracting is to work that slide full length forward & return ... hard and fully. Don't baby it
