    Actually the post you are referencing is new and is dated 7-6-2018 so it's quite relevant, besides that's good info anyway.

    Well they most certainly are not made of "Pot metal" and they certainly are NOT a POS! They are made of what is called "Graphitic Steel" which is orders of magnitude stronger than Pot metal, the added graphite and the process used to make this...

    The 38-55 is a tad longer than the 38-55? Just funnin, :mrgreen: I realize that's a typo but the funny thing is that there are two different 38-55 cases with the difference being that one is indeed a "tad longer" than the other!

    They did but for whatever their reasoning they evidently thought it more profitable to drop H&R and concentrate on Remington/Marlin. They had their reasons and they may have it right, who knows?

    Although it didn't involve buying another company to eliminate competition it's similar to what Ford did by eliminating the extremely popular Ranger pickup truck (DUMB move!), the thinking was (by their own admission) that since people couldn't get...

    Yep you nailed it, buy out and eliminate the competition has been a business strategy for ages! Sure they could have continued to build and sell H&Rs but the lower priced models are rarely if ever as profitable as upper-end higher priced models of...

    Yes they have a REAL 38-55 bore and not a hashed over .375 like the "modern 38-55's" ! I suppose most of the barrel makers are set up for .375 and figured it to be "close enough", most folks seem happy enough with the .375 bore but in reality it's...

    That coil spring and hammer are identical to what Winchester went to after they changed the design from the flat spring but they also started using a spring and plunger for the lever instead of just simply leaving the flat spring, or at least that...
