    That's nice! If I every buy another Win 1894 I'd want it to be a .32-40, or maybe a .38-55. Chris.

    I have used both NAPA cutting oil and Ballistol. I think they are very similar and have noticed no performance differences. The NAPA stuff is a fair bit cheaper if you buy a gallon jug. I think that the price is the main reason people use the...

    I think you'll be super happy with it. The .32-40 is the perfect choice for offhand in a traditional rifle. What weight barrel did you choose? I have heard a few people say they prefer a #3 profile for offhand, but I really like my 28" half...

    Wow, exhibition grade and engraved! That'll be a looker. Is it a #52 schuetzen jr.? What other options? I have two of them, but not engraved. The first is a #52 Shuetzen Jr. with upgraded wood and #4 half octagon Badger barrels in .32-40 and...
