    The model 14 was really a genuine match revolver and I knew an old bullseye shooter who had multiple targets with the centers shot out. The old bullseye load of 2.7 grains and a 148 grain wadcutter was all he ever fired in his 14. I must admit I...

    Yes it actually took about 6 months to really clean that 1895 Winchester barrel. 1st week or so alternated between Hoppe's and Butch's Bore shine. Shame when you do all that work and still see those lumps sitting on the tops of the lands. Sometimes...

    Copper or cupro nickle fouling and powder fouling went on the barrels interior surface in layers. And for that reason swapping solvents and cleaning procedures during a cleaning session is what is needed to deal with the layers of bullet and powder...

    You may or may not have cleaned out all of the old wd-4o or gunk in the bolt. Check the back end of the firing pin for burrs caused by getting hit by the firing pin. And sometimes the claw on the extractor may need some work. Look to see if it has...

    When I bought an old quick site it came with 3-4 different screws that hold the pin in for the bolt. Seems Winchester did change the screws threads over the years. Those screws are needed to make up the difference of the thickness of the side...

    A S&W model 10 is a great revolver and a model 15 is even better with the adjustable sights. If at all possible get the model 15. And as far as a 1911A1 is concerned the one I have was built on Springfield Armory on their NM frame has a Knowlin...
