Nice clean gun, DL! Oh, and welcome aboard!
Many times the lack of a date code (either Roman Numerals or two letters in a box) indicates a kit gun.

Steve, you are living a life most of us only dream about. I hope you will continue to post your gorgeous photos and allow us to live vicariously through you.

Dang! That is some GOOD shooting!

Generally, the cost of shipping is higher than the cost of the springs. If I need to order one, I usually get several and have some spares in my shooting box.

You might try unlubed wads. I've used them before with no issues.

Loser extraordinare:

Any man who works daily, keeps a roof over his family and puts bread on the table and manages to maintain a group of successful fora is no 'loser' in my book.

General Discussion / Re: Cabela's affiliate links

Most members do not use the Cabela's links on these forums, but the same deal is offered here as any other Cabela's link or directly from Cabela's. It is much appreciated when members order through our links. The payoff is small, 3 percent or so, but the revenue helps with operational costs.
I find members posting affiliate links from other forums, members bragging about their purchase and posting other forum's affiliate links to their purchased products. Members and guests from Black Powder Smoke or the 1858 Remington forum, click the link and if they buy the item or browse and buy something else, the other forum gets a commission. How nice.
I was not aware of this, Smokey! Thanks for bringing it to our attention! Kill two birds with one stone, guys!

Kirk, is that his decision? It is legal to ship m/l firearms anywhere in the US as long as the recipient is able to receive it.
Yes. He said it's their policy even though I showed him that the restrictions only apply to two counties; Springfield an Cook county and a handful of municipalities, none of which apply to me. It's cool though; that's their decision and I respect it.
