    A similar issue I was having with a older Rossi .44-40....it would feed sort-of if you cranked it hard...but not always. Very hard to get it to lift the cartridge. I compared it to an ancient Winchester M92 and a fairly new stainless Rossi M92. It...

    The Author of this thread stated he was a Cowboy Action Shooter. He knows how to work a Lever Gun properly. He might ---and then again he might not - he stated he has never dismantled a 92 or a Rossi 92 so its plain he is unfamiliar with...

    a 92 runs differently than a marlin or a 73 - go back out in the yard and make certain sure you are not short stroking the lever - its the last little bit of stroke that clicks the elevator up - could be that simple!!!!

    There's a solid hardwood block lives on the concrete 6 feet from my back door, a two pound blacksmith hammer and a good sharp wad punch - I can cut enough wads in a few minutes to keep me shooting for months - always lookin for easy ways is me.

    In the American West it truly was a matter of defense of self and close associates - well into the 1900's in certain places. By modern, use-of-AR-15 techniques, Nelson King's loading gate on the right side of the gun is ergonomically wrong. On...

    Ask him to bore the rifling same depth as the 1987 vintage CVA's - if he can duplicate that exactly you will have a superbly accurate easy to load for barrel - I have two of those (54 cal x66twist) - about the most versatile roundball barrel...

    Those loads are top end accurate loads for a 66 twist - would not work worth a squirt in the 48 twist guns I have had in my hands (or seen close up) - never owned a TC tho---- 100 yard target tells the story in the end - if it works it works -...
