    I take it the fore end has more the profile of the Garand. Beautiful rifle. Looks like what they were trying for with the Tanker Garand. I'd look for, or fabricate, a flush or near flush carry mag for woods roaming. I'm guessing the balance...

    Shooting glass balls tossed in the air was a common sport back then, not just for wild west shows or exhibitions. Shot loads in the Winchester chamberings would have been effective snake loads then as they are now in pistol or rifle. They would...

    Multigunner replied to a thread Win 1894 38-55 in Leverguns
    First time I heard of the .38-55 was in an episode of "Bonanza". Hoss Cartwright was showing off his new custom engraved Winchester and comparing it to Little Joe's .44-40. Probably an anachronism since the series was set in an earlier time frame.

    Actually I've seen quite a few of those hatchback cylinders fail in far less than 8-10 years. Those pistons also get very little cycling compared to those used in an air rifle. You aren't likely to open and close a hatchback fifty times a day....

    I wonder about long term storage. Would the nitro piston seals be subject to degradation like common pump up gun seals often are. The conditions of storage being the major factor with air guns. Temperature and humidity being the most important...

    I think the reason the smaller .22 and .32 caliber revolvers held on so long was the fact that one could use the same ammunition in the handgun as they already had for use in a small game rifle. Or perhaps it was vice versa. The .32-20 and .44-40...

    That is exactly the load I always used in my .38 Specials, best all around load. There was an S&W company approved book at the local library years ago that had pretty much all the serial number ranges by date. Haven't seen a similar online source...

    I'll add a prayer. Stay strong Joe. Sometimes these things can reverse themselves depending on the extent of the damage. Since damage appears to be selective and limited he has a fair chance of recovery.

    Multigunner replied to a thread Need help in AirGuns
    I have one of the early PPKS marketed by Crosman. It is an Umarex product. A major problem with these is that the valve body can become deformed by the impact of the slide returning to battery. Mine still holds gas and shoots but jams badly....
