Thanks for the heads up. Can you tell me the best lead-alternative shot for this gun? My grandson is only 11 years old and shoots Turkeys and targets.

  

Is lead prohibited where he’ll be using the shotgun? 

 

Mike

…help greatly appreciated.

You have at least one too many digits in the serial number.  Production of the Model 97 ended at S/N 1024701 on September 30, 1957.

…about the serial number marking on either one of them.  The earliest Take Down Model 1897 I have found thus far is serial number 48866 & 48870 and both were marked on the receiver and take down extension.

The hard rubber butt plate was standard for the Brush Gun variation from day one of

…recently acquired an early 1897, SN 53031, which as I understand it puts it at around just 1,700 SN above the first takedowns for this model.  After lettering it, I was able to confirm that this is a true early takedown Brush gun, and from

Bill,

Which specific 40-70 ctg. ?

I have a high-wall in 40-70 Sharpes Straight and another in 40-70 Ballard... and no reloading tool or bullet mold for either!

If its a Winchester Model 1894 Reloading Tool, its for the 40-70 W.C…

….F.

The 1875 & 1882 Tools were in the other 40-70 calibers.

Bill,

What condition are they in?

…the owner of the LGS look at it today.  He bought TVA surplus over the years.  He got 4 Winchester 1892s in 44 WCF in the 70's.  While he had not seen one marked as mine is, he believes it is a legit TVA surplus rifle.

I was amused to read in their Camp .50 ad:

"The Standard Arms, "Camp" gun is carefully tested and targeted with both shot and ball cartridges before leaving the factory."  Hmmm the gun has no sights....  

And while we're at it, was there a .50

All, IF I recall correctly, there was a run of 44 Henry flat, rimfire made by a French company in the 1970's or maybe the 1980's.  Seems to me Ray Giles had a few of them for sale years ago.  But it also may be that I am mixing up details that weren't…

I’d love to do a “mag dump” or take on a bunch of steel targets with an 1866 but I’m pretty sure it will never happen in my lifetime. Unlike “modern” central priming systems I don’t think the old rimfire priming

…etc. that span quite a period of time now.  These weren't around when I bought my first .22 with my own money.  It was a Winchester Model 270 and it was a real piece of crap.  I bought it brand new at a local hardware store.  It jammed often and I was so green at the time that I didn't

…catalogs only listed the 45-70, but thus far, I have encountered ELWs made in 33 WCF, 38-56 WCF, 40-82 WCF, and 45-90 WCF.

…are interesting among collectors.  They are very rare, but a lot of collectors are not interested in them.  I had one once.  A M1886 .45-70 ELW, pistol grip, take-down, checkered (not deluxe wood) with a Lyman No. 21 (or No. 38 - I can't remember for sure) with no rear sight…

…s head very strongly.  I recall one collector suggested I have the barrel rifled.  Given the high condition and the desirability of being a .45-70, TD, pistol grip, checkered stocks, Lyman sight (with no rear dovetail) and so on, he thought it would be much more valuable rifled than as it sat…

…have experimented with it.  It would be no different in concept than my Standard Arms Camp .50 "buck and ball."  As I ponder this, maybe the .45-70 case loaded with 2 or 3 .45 round balls?  Now I really wish I had it back!  Anyone out there have it?

…the 30WCF and a #3 barrel. I have plenty of correct  brass, powder and bullet moulds and I’ve learned that the lowly 30WCF is underestimated as a target cartridge. I won’t be using it to knock over steel so I won’t need to subject my shoulder to unnecessary abuse.

…ONE KNOWS what cartridge it is chambered in.  No one has seen a box of cartridges.  A few references state it was chambered for some sort of .50-70 shot cartridge.  

Years ago, I talked to George Fink, a Standard Arms researcher who owned and studied these rifles.  He has done a chamber cast…

…in it and they all chamber!  Below are four I tried - .50-110 bulleted cartridge, .50-110 shot cartridge, .50-95 shot cartridge and .50-70 shot cartridge:

Here's one with the .50-110 shot cartridge sitting on top of the magazine follower:

Fully chambered:

…that the one cartridge that does not work for this gun is the one cartridge that the reference books say it is chambered for.  That is, the .50-70.  Yes, the .50-70 will chamber, but the it is too wide at the rim to clear the ejection port.  The .50-110's and the .50-95 will clear the

…not some weird deep pockets, just a person that loves 1886's

  

OCY - about identical to my experience except change the chambering from .45-70 to .45-90.  My grandfather had, for many years, used a .45-90 borrowed from a brother.  If I saw the rifle, I was too young to remember.  An

…All

I have a bit of an 1886 puzzle that you may be able to help with. 

My rifle number is 94538. It's a 45-70 with a round barrel and a full length mag tube. I asked the museum people to send me the information that they had (factory letter) and they came…

…or a re-chambering job.

The barrel has "Saginaw" stamped into it (a long time ago, I think) and so I wonder whether it was re-chambered in 45-70 post-manufacture by an outfit in Saginaw?. The stock and the forearm match and the rifle cycles and fires 45-70. The primer strike is centered.

Just curious, What does one do when they exceed the "Crew Weight of 200 Pounds"?

I'm afraid I'm over by about 70.

What's a new set of tires run on a P51 these days?
