    Since it is not the style I want in a 92, I would remove the barrel, magazine and stocks. It would then get a new 20 inch half octagon barrel in 32-20 a blind magazine, schnobble forearm and buttstock with a rifle buttplate. The parts removed would be kept in case a future owner wanted to return it to original.
    Spell check doesn't work in Chrome, so if something is spelled wrong, it's just a typo that I missed.

    What a great dilemma to have. Of course it boils down to what you want but I'm a #2 guy. Some re-lines are just about invisible. It would become a shooter again and continue life doing what it was born to do.

    Thanks to a fellow CB member, I will be purchasing some 25-20 brass and it shall continue to be a 25-20. Because so many of you have shared your very valuable input, I will be bringing you all along on the ride as I work up loads and take her out to shoot once more.

    You already have a 32-20 (and they're pretty slow comparatively) so I'd go with the faster cartridge. You can buy bee brass and size up, with a little trim to length loss. Maybe another option I'm sure won't be the purist choice: reline to .218 bee. That thing gets there!

    Otherwise, reline to 25-20

    before doing anything clean that bore real good. I picked up a 92 rifle in .32-20 one time cheap because it had no bore left. I got it it home and started cleaning. yep it was leaded up.

    I would try this mold, hope it casts fat, Beagle it if it doesn't, get a custom sizing die @ 0.261" and try it with fat bullets. It gives you an attempt to make the gun work as is.

    Bob- I scrubbed her like we all had to when we came home with dirt under our fingernails. No rifling left on the old girl. Ran the new hawkeye down the bore as well, can see some rifling at the very beginning. To my knowledge it has only shot jacketed factory rounds. #2 is the route I am going with, thanks to a member here who had a bunch of brass in 25-20. Midway is sending cowboy dies and Meister bullets. It will be a sole cast rifle, the ammo I have for it already will very likely find a collector. My 32-20 is a lead slinger as well and I am more than happy with it.

    My legitimate fear is that the 25 won't be able to keep up to the 30. Will have to wait and see. Don't want to jinx anything!

    Thanks again everyone!
