Newer Chinese 1887


Recommended Posts

I watch the YouTube videos of the newest Chinese version and they have problems ejecting shells.

 

Is this an easy fix?

 

Dang sure not spending over $1000 for one.

 

Never should have sold my former Dangamatic.

But that is not what I asked John.  

 

Is it an easy fix?  Some of us retirees are working on a shoestring budget.

Sir,

I understand completely but buying a PW-87 in hopes to fix it would be throwing good money after bad. If I've learned one thing about firearms (and many other things) you get what you pay for. The PW-87 is a poorly made copy of a copy.

Never heard of CAI. If you mean IAC, (Interstate Arms Corp.), they're a distributor, not a manufacturer. The PW87 is distributed by Century Arms. They're not a manufacturer either. It's like distributors Cimarron and Taylors, who don't make the guns, but import them from Italy.

 

IIRC, IAC isn't importing the 1887 anymore, so those that you see are used and would explain the difference in price between them and new PW87s.

 

Both guns are of Chinese manufacture and a "knockoff" of the Winchester 1887. I've no idea who made the IAC imported gun, or the Century imported gun. What I do know is that new, out of the box, the Century PW87 has a worse reputation than the older IAC 1887.

 

Good luck!

They can be made to run as good as any 87 .

But it needs to be done by a professional.

Lasseter can tune them up very nice .

I have one for sale in the Classifieds that Lasseter tuned his self last year.

And it functions great .

Im only selling because I had a Motorcycle crash last year .

And Im not able to shoot as much now .

Health issues .

Ok thanks.  CAI it is then.  

 

Duh, there are 10 CAI 1887's on Gunbroker cheaper than the newest Chinese knockoff.

 

They are both from the same maker in China. ;)
