    I voted no but I would buy a new Marlin 44 mag in a second if the powers at be for Marlin/Remlin would tighten the twist to 1/20.

    brewer12345, go to this website: www.MOD94SCOPERAIL.COM You got my curiosity up so I found this site and he makes putting a scout scope on a Rossi 92 look pretty simple, or really simple for a good 'smith. The scout gives the access to the action...

    Maybe a scout scope? Amen to the fiber optic sight. They are great in low light situations. I put a green one on my 4" 629 and it is a lot better than the S&W factory front sight.

    Brewer, you certainly know more about your eyesight than anybody else and I thought I needed a scope for my 1895 CB as well, but I bit the boolit and tried a Skinner Express sight and once I got used to using it, I can hit a piece of computer paper...

    murf205 replied to a thread Cleaning in Cast Boolits
    Talk about differences of opinions, this topic is one of the best for our diverse tactics for cleaning. I (fortunately) don't have a rifle, or handgun that leads, so I push a dry patch through the barrel and then another with a patch of light Singer...

    I run a patch of gun oil through the barrel and tap the nose of a boolit into the muzzle ALMOST all the way in with a plastic hammer. Then I use a 3/8" OAK dowel to finish driving the boolit through the other end. Lots of people say to use a brass...

    bewelch, you didn't say but are you a handloader? If so mic some of your jacketed bullets and see if they will push through the cylinder throats with finger pressure. Since it is a recent manufactured S&W, I'm thinking probably not going to go...

    Why buy one? Why not buy one! I sold my 1917 Colt to buy another gun and I have been wanting another one since. They don't kick like a mule, don't deafen the shooter and most love cast boolits. Long story made short...they are a hoot to shoot and...

    Solman, that's what I did in essence but I didn't use a PID. I used a rheostat dimmer instead (because I had one already). I found that the hardest thing to do was drilling the aluminum plate in the center-notice the hole in plate- to accommodate...

    I have one just like it that belonged to my father in law who was an inspector at USS at the Fairfield Works and a newer one with the ratchet. You cant be without one. You will get the "feel" for it quickly.

    I have an older Pro-Melt and I love it. I have read that the newer ones (China?) drip as bad as a Lee 4-20 or in some cases worse. I have an old 10 lb Lee that I have used since 1980 and it might drip a little but its still working like a charm....

    murf205 replied to a thread 44 mag pistol groups in Cast Boolits
    Outback, just a side note, if you are shooting off of your rifle rest and it has a canvas or leather bag, get a piece of leather to cover the bag. I split a front bag one time with a 44 from the cylinder blast. It will damage it over time for sure....

    The humidity here in Alabama makes mowing a real thrill. After I cut 1 acre, I look like some pushed me into the pool. After we got a couple of good snowfalls, this yard took off this spring. I have what we call a 4 beer yard, and that does not...
