Lever Action Gut Punch!!!

Varies...

.Original Winchester '73, born in 1880.  New springs... didn't want to go with 140 year-old springs.  But I keep them in the workshop, to give to the next owner, when my time is up.

.Uberti 1873, slicked and short-stroked.  It doesn't make me faster, but it's a joy to shoot.  Just like I have an 8-cylinder in my truck... still have to drive the speed limit.

.Marlin '94  Stock except for lighter springs... and a short-stroked Marlin '94.  Again, it doesn't make me faster.  But, it feels so nice.

.Original Winchester '92, born in 1894.  Stock.  Gotta run it hard.  Extremely tight groups.  

.Others... but you get the idea.

I have two.

One is a Uberti 1873, 20" octagon barrel, 38/357, pistol grip stock with just a short stroke kit.

The other is 1 of 5000 made Browning 53 in 32-20 Win., modified with extended magazine tube, and completely slicked up.

I've shot my Daisy Red Ryder a couple of times at monthly matches.... What a Hoot!!!!

It's Slow, but usually Clean since the counters can't see or hear any of the shots.... Any Doubt goes to the Shooter :D

 

But normally it's a Winchester/Miroku 1866, 18" short rifle, slicked up and short stroked in 38

Pick a "go to" out of 29... what is this, the Sophie's Choice of CAS?


They all get their turn, except the POS Taurus Thunderbolt, but the most used are probably either a Uberti 1873 w/20" round barrel .38-40, 3rd gen short stroke, aluminum carrier, Grabber front sight, Whisper springs, stainless mag spring... maybe a couple other goodies that don't come to mind at the moment...

 

or...

 

a Uberti 1866 .38 spl w/17" octagon barrel, 3rd gen short stroke and shaved original springs.

Uberti 1873 Competition rifle, stock except for a sure hit front sight.

Thinking of putting a bigger sight on mine. Getting hard to see that little thing.

Since I put it on that little gremlin that was stealing my front sight in the middle of a stage has pretty much stopped doing it. Thinking about a set for the Rugers next.

.45 Colt Henry Big Boy. I have fired housands of rounds of warthog loads of Holy Black with nary a hitch. The only work was by me.

 

My other SASS rifles are in .357, Magnum, and .44 Magnum plus side match .38-55 and .50-140.
