Winchester/Miroku Carrier Mod w/Pics......

Recommended Posts

Does your Winchester 73 or '66 throw your Brass Forward ?????

 

Mine did, But it Don't No Mo !!!!

You need to remove the Carrier and you'll need a Dremel with a round stone Bit.....

Like this One........... IMG_1363.thumb.jpg.e4eea59ba0cd83bc749a51f2141a18a9.jpg

 

Then Very Carefully Grind away on the Carrier till it looks like the one in the Pics below......

The slot you grind should be a little deeper on the left side of the Carrier....... Look at the pics closely.

 

Once your done, if you did it right...  your brass will be ejected Up and to the right....

I've done Two like this and now get most all of my brass back.....

 

 

I've posted this before.... Can't remember exactly who it was that came up with it......

But It's Real Easy to do and it works...........

 

Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!!!

The ball diameter is just under 1/2" 

The guns I did it on are both 38's

 

If you were going to do it on a 45 or 44-40 you could use the same stone,

but just make the opening slightly wider.

Not trying to stir up the pot. But is this an approved external mod?

My Winchester Miroku 1873 44WCF tends to throw them about a foot high and to the right.  My original Winchester 1873 just bubbles them out the top a couple of inches.

It might be considered internal mod since you'd have to look inside to see it with the action closed.  Nevertheless, these two statements are in the SHB:

 

"All parts may be smoothed, re-profiled, polished, de-burred, or replaced provided they are not prohibited in these Covenants."

 

"The carrier and/or lifter mechanisms in rifles may be lightened, welded, modified, or replaced."

Definitive!
