Alpo Posted November 7, 2022 Share Posted November 7, 2022 Without saying what the manufacturer is? If someone is talking about their 1894, do you suppose they mean their Winchester rifle caliber lever action or their Marlin pistol caliber lever action? I remember a thread one time where someone was trying to decide between a 17 and a 19. This was confusing because of 17 is a 22 and a 19 is a 357. They have nothing in common except they're both k-frames. But he was talking about Glocks and they're both 9 mm. What brought this on is on another board this morning there's a thread about sights on a Model 57. I thought maybe he was trying to decide between a Patridge and a red ramp on his 41 magnum. Turns out that he meant as Zastava 9 mm. It's nothing to throw a fit about, but I just find it annoying. I would say 95% of the time if someone is talking about their Model 37 shotgun, they mean a Ithaca pump. It's that other 5% of the time when they mean the Winchester single shot. I remember a thread one time where a guy is going on about his original 1873, and then he mentions that it's in 45 Colt. And I told him it wasn't original - that it was most likely an Uberti. And he got real bent and insisted that it was "a real Colt, not no piece of Italian junk". Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
