The Original Lumpy Gritz Posted February 2 Share Posted February 2 5 hours ago, H. K. Uriah, SASS #74619 said: Another pard here east of the Hudson once told me that the Chinese 87s are nearly perfect copies of the oiriginals, which were built for 2.5" shells. You will probably find that the shorter shells will work better. I know that even though my Winchester has had it's chamber lengthened to 2.75", it works much better with Magtech 2.5"s than it does with AA's. My Chiappa on the other hand, digests 2.75" shells with no problem, but occasionally stovepipes the shorter shells. Go figure. BTW, Reverend, you said you are from New England. Have we me? All the China made ones are copies of the 1901 version. Coyote Cap worked his tail off to bring the '87 and '97 to us cowboy shooters. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
