    Just ran into one that probably can't do a square, mebbe an egg. If I adjust down it goes down & left. "Up" goes up & right. Go from 3-9X and impact shifts. Good thing I still have the box.

    I'd probably buy one. I haven't seen many around here but I think they held off on the 94's until they got their issues worked out. Safety doesn't bother me, if it did I'd slip an o-ring on it and forget it.

    Nice! My Marlin 1894 is about the same vintage in 32WCF, just finished repairing the extractor and we'll be headed back to the range soon. Your 93 looks to be in better condition than my 94, should be safe to shoot after your 'smith looks it over.

    The wood and 50-60% condition kills it for most collectors, including me. Sounds like a great shooter or candidate for restoration.

    My wife passed away in 2002 and I still get credit card offers, insurance offers and some others in Her name through the mail. When you call them about it nothing happens.

    In theory, two. In practice, three. My "bore sighter" is a piece of painters' tape on a shed on the other side of the driveway. When I see someone chasing their zero around on a warm day I'll suggest they let it cool, on a hot day it's a whole...

    Something to consider. In a NRA High power rifle match you get 2 sighters at each stage to zero the rifle. Granted most competitors have very close zeros for each stage but still its 2 sighters. Most use one to adjust fine tune and the second as a...

    A draw back to breech seating is if at a public range and you load its hard to unload if a cease fire is called. The case can be removed but a rod is needed to push the bullet out.

    Aluminum is good you just need to experiment with temp and cadence more you will find what they like. Sometimes casting with 2 moulds together smooths out the temp swings some. It gives the blocks a little time to dissipate the heat and allows them...

    Going coarser on the sand paper will speed things up a little. Maybe 120grit to start with. Use a long rod so you can have a piece of sandpaper 3-4" long and wide enough to be a tight fit in the die. (as it opens up use printer paper under the sand...

    The model 41 is a fine solid handgun, is your the 5 1/2" or 7" model? Just curious here is all. I would start out with a full disassembled cleaning and see if that fixes the problems. 22s are notorious for dumping crud into the actions and build up...

    Well, OP, did you scratch that itch? I had a pistol cartridge 1894 (45 Colt) for years but never had any issues that I can recall. Problem is I don't recall ever shooting it but I'm pretty sure I did. I think the Rossi R92 is a better option if you...
