    The 1889 32-20 Marlin had three issues: broken firing pin, broken ejector, and a broken trigger/safety catch spring. Numrich had none, but Wisner's had the firing pin and the ejector. I ordered the firing pin and ejector and the store is going to...

    Great info. Thanks. I didn't want to order one from Wisner's unless I was sure it would fit and work. The store will take the gun back but I'll spend $22 plus shipping to keep it.

    Maybe this should be in the gunsmithing section but I'll start here. The ejector on the Marlin 32-20 that I just bought is broken. Numrich is out of them, but Wisner sells a "new style" ejector assembly with spring for $22. It looks nothing like...

    I like the FFFG Goex in my .41 Swiss Vetterli, even though it can handle certain smokeless powders. I'll probably use it in the Marlin. I spray the barrel with PAM every few shots.

    I have a Colt .32 Police Positive (.32 S&W). I googled around and read somewhere - maybe here- that cops carried them not as a "man stopper", but as more of a "man marker". They'd shoot the fleeing bad guy, and that bad guy would keep fleeing and...

    I completely stripped it down for cleaning - it's pretty nasty inside - but there's no rust, broken springs, etc. Just gunk. It's a lot easier to disassemble/assemble than the Winchester '94. I've been researching powder loads and there's a lot...

    60 day hold on a gun is for people with patience. I lasted 2 weeks. I haven't done anything to it yet. The bore looks really good but needs a cleaning. Lots of what looks like original finish, though it's mottled on the mag tube. I have a 30-30...
