    Rebounding hammers are known for developing light primer strikes. Either print it to take to your gunsmith, or study it well enough that you can describe what is need to to improve the hammer force. (I suggest the former). ...

    More info needed: is it a complete failure to fire, or intermittent? What trigger/lock group? Half cock notch? Rebounding hammer? XBolt safety or tang safety? 1. Unload gun. Close action, and carefully examine all mating surfaces. Is the...

    Griff replied to a thread IMR 4895 in 30/30 in Leverguns
    I've had my best accuracy with RL7 at near max levels. I'm shooting out of up to 6 different .30-30s, from a 16" Trapper, to a heavy custom barreled 26" octagon... all Winchester 94s. My notebook show they chronograph @ 2190ave. SD of 12. Best...

    Griff replied to a thread too much neck? in Leverguns
    It certainly appears to be collapsed. Lead is malleable, not as much as air... but still capable of being deformed. Here's the SAMMI specs on the .30-30. Get out your dial calipers and measure away. It may just be an optical illusion, but...

    Griff replied to a thread too much neck? in Leverguns
    In rereading your post, I may have answered the "wrong" question. ;) :?: I don't have any of my reloads with me, but... I would say that front driving band looks a tad long. More importantly, did the case collapse during chambering, vs. seating as...

    Griff replied to a thread too much neck? in Leverguns
    No. Off-hand I would say that's a collapsed case... caused by a maladjusted seating/crimp die, or untrimmed case. Pull bullet, dump powder,, relube case, resize, check sized case length, trim as necessary, chamfer case mouth, refill with...

    Griff replied to a thread Curses on banansa in Leverguns
    Actually, if the front band goes around the barrel, with a rear ban around the forestock & barrel, it is simply a carbine, irrespective of caliber. If the magazine is held by a ring dovetailed into the bottom of the barrel, and no rear band it...

    Look up William Iorg over on Paco Kelly's leverguns site. Ask him that question. Since, IIRC he was in on the development of the 375Win, and blew up a few regular 94s and Marlin 336s in getting there, I'll bet dollars to donuts that he'll have...

    When Winchester quit making the mdl 1892, they didn't keep the tooling, etc. When demand for pistol calibered leverguns made a comeback, the only option Winchester had was to either re-tool, or modify the carrier & guides on the mdl 94 to...
