Smokeless Repeaters / Re: A case for the lever action
« on: November 04, 2018, 11:02:48 AM »
I turned down a '94 Win. 30-30 so my friend could have it. There is always a twinge of remorse when selling guns, but I sold my Marlin '99, Golden 22, and a short barreled, button Mag '93. Among my new-ish lever guns are 3 '92 Rossi (44-40, 45 Colt, 38-357) guns and an Uberti '73, also in 45 Colt. And....no shooting for a few days as we have a low pressure front setting in with rain again.

We don't have trails to explore like you do, but there are still a few winding, scenic town roads we haven't driven.

Nice photos EM. When you do this sort of thing, do you have a route in mind, or just set out driving?

Gunsmithing/Tuning/Parts & Repairs / Unknown 51 Navy
« on: November 01, 2018, 05:48:10 PM »
I just got a 51 Colt that was said to have a problem with cylinder rotation (I posted on Colt Navy forum). As I suspected, I found the hand was missing when I tore it down. My problem (possibly) is not knowing who made the gun. I think it was a kit gun as there is no maker stamp or ID anywhere. The only thing on the gun is "made in Italy" and "black powder only". One possible hint as to maker is that the serial number is prefaced with the letter T, but I sure don't know who may have used that method. If I can't find out, I will just order the hand and fit it, would have to do that anyway, but wanted to at least get close.

I also like hardened screws, and they don't need to be over-tightened. I especially like the hammer, trigger and loading lever screws to be hardened. These are the ones that are the axles that are used every shot.

I have always had a liking of the lever gun. My first one was my dad's pre-64 Winchester 94 in 32 Spl. Over the years I have bought and sold a few, but still have some. In fact, I just got a new Rossi '92 in 38/357 yesterday. Haven't even cleaned it up yet. Will load up a bunch of ammo and hopefully get some shooting in over the weekend.

Navy Models / Pig in a poke
« on: November 01, 2018, 02:55:10 PM »
I just got a 5" brass frame '51 Navy revolver at a great price. It is an older gun, has some rust and NO makers stamp. I'm thinkin' it is a kit gun as the frame has not been polished much, at least that I can tell. It needs some work as the hand (if there is one!) doesn't poke out from the recoil shield and the bolt doesn't move either. The one-piece grips are a very light blond color and the serial number starts with T. Sound familiar to anybody? I will take it down and clean it a bit to see if anything shows up.

Trapdoor Rifles / Re: A "different" Trapdoor

Ted, the stock was a pre-carve ordered from George Peterson (Treebone Carving) a few years ago. I was working on it when we had an indoor "flood" while we were away and the stock got wet. When we got home the wood was swollen, stained, rusty. I was so upset/disappointed that I set it aside for several months before finally deciding to see if I could rescue the project.

Phoned in some maximum bids yesterday. Waiting/watching to see if I win anything. The first gun on my list went for $125 more than my bid!
