    I also don't have pictures but taking pics as I go. There is a low wall in my collection but I won't post it here. Those single shot "are they lever guns" debate can get heated.

    Well, after seeing hickok45's vid on Winchester development, I started collecting those: models 1873, 1876, 1892, 1894, 1895. Got the new version of the 1866 most recently. Then I started in on Marlins: model 1881 small receiver version, 1891 4th...

    Will add my lever guns here. This is the Whitney-Kennedy. I took it down as far as I could. I discovered that nearly every component of this rifle is stamped with the serial number. It's nice seeing everything is original from factory. 44-40

    +1 I will let it age. It's not so much that I want it shiny, but I don't like those horrid stains. I do plan on shooting BP in it BTW. Has anyone else here seen the YouTube vid made by guy "atlantic products"? Very nice discussion of this...

    So, the brass part that I polished has lost its golden hue. Winchester is said to be solid brass. So what happened here?

    I think the laquer enhances the yellow appearance of the brass. I used a little 0000 steel wool, then Dremel felt with a little buffing compound, cleans it up. Then it's shiny but not nearly as golden. I am going to add the fillet of JB weld on the...

    Not sure about the cause for the stain. Pictures, including the lovely stock.... Edit: there we go, that's an accurate look of the wood.

    I walked this back when a return was never processed by the seller and figure I will just put in the extra time and effort to polish out the stains. It does seem to be a high quality rifle with beautiful wood, and a silky smooth action.

    After work proceeded hastily to local FFL to pick up my new 1866 deluxe in 44-40. The brass had what appeared to be woodstain all over the butt plate and part of the receiver. Wouldn't come off with Brasso. So called Bud's and the operator is...
