    Il ask for pics if possible. People have different opinions on pictures. Especially at gun shows. I dont know what can happen when I take a picture but people are quite reluctant sometimes. Il also look for the serial number on the receiver.

    Hey, If you want to age the brass back to what it was or alittle more, You could just shoot the rifle with BP like you said, or I aged a powder dispenser by just taking BP residue with water and rubbing it on. It takes the shine away the first time....

    Keep in mind the only winchester marking is on that tang... All other ones are non-present.

    The upper tang had the WInchester 1892 stamp. Looks like a real one. Its just that the receiver had so many writings on it. I didnt mention it I think, but the rifle is a saddle ring carbine. Thats why I thought it could have been military related....

    The serial number was on the lower tang. Clearly done with some type of bad engraving tool.

    Im sure the guy will ask a ridiculous price for it. He said he would call after he had the gunsmith check them. Only issue is that the gunsmith left on a hunting trip. So I need to wait 2 weeks. He put my name down for this rifle and a mossberg...

    Its in 44-40. And I dont know the price. The gunsmith is gone hunting so He said i need to wait two or three weeks before he gets back. From what people are saying it seems like a project gun.

    Ok so I went to a local gun store and the man had a Winchester 1892 for sale. Im not too familiar with this model but I noticed a few uncommon details that I'd need info on. 1. The rifle has Numrich Arms on the barrel. Instead of Winchester...? ...

    How can I maintain and treat my rifle stock? Id possibly like to coat or oil the stock on my Win 1886. Im not sure if it has varnish on it as it was made in 1889. I saw videos of people using pine tar and turpentine to thin it out abit leaving a...

    That doesnt work for a lever gun. The rear mount gets stuck underneath the lever.

    I just made myself one with leather. I think it looks pretty decent and works well so far. The real test will be in a couple months.

    I have an old 1886 octagon barrel Winchester. It does not have any sling mounts but I would need a sling. I have been working on designs for a long time. Made a few prototype models. I like stuff that looks "period correct" so I am not a fan of...

    I cut the crimp off some Winchester and federal 2 3/4 shells. Took the powder out and slapped some Pyrodex in there. Cut the middle part out of the wads. They have a "spring" type piece inbetween of the over powder wad and shot cup. So I cut that...

    No, they are all fine. And all in shooting condition. Doesnt mean because something is rusted that its useless. They still work just as well as they did 130 years ago! I got one rifle that was "rusty" checked out by a gunsmith. A really reputable...

    I shoot the 2 3/4 shells from walmart too. Now I guess if I want to live longer il buy the brass ones. I know where to get them they are just 40$ for 20 I think. Abit more expensive for me since im in Canada!
