…53 is grouped with model 92 in the "when was my winchester made" serial look up section. The serial number of my model 53 in 44wcf is 470. According to the serial look up my gun was made in 1892. I know that is incorrect. Matter of fact the barrel has a 25 stamped on the bottom

Anyway, I thought it was interesting that sporting shooters modified their rifles just as frequently as target shooters since I was always under the impression that target rifles were more often modified than sporting rifles but that is not the case with these

Good luck with your pursuit of a great looking Hornet. 

Here's a M70 Hornet I have, but just a few years later - SN 293054    1954

…have (with the help of Bert and others) logged about 3% of the total production of those models.  The Model 56 is a Sporting rifle and the 57 is a Target rifle.

Interestingly, the modification percentages are identical for both models, 41% of each model has been significantly altered in the last 70

…sure makes finding a nice Model 56 tough!

I got waylaid with several of the other articles as well!  Another example of how the past is so much better than what we have now.

On the .32-70, I strongly suspect Winchester would have built up a cartridge testing rifle on a M1885 action?

…steps using a .38-56 die before the .33 WCF.  Seems to make little if any difference in how many good pieces of brass I get from a batch of .45-70.  Best effort is to try to assure the mouths of the .45-70 are uniform first before reforming.  Seems my loss rate varies based on my attention

…those so interested, I get about 10 to 12 loadings out of brass reformed from .45-70 UNLESS one was wrinkled significantly in the reforming process.  Yes, I do load those as well and get several loads before they crack at the wrinkle

…ever heard of a .32-70 made by Winchester?  I never had but ran across a reference today in a February, 1956 Guns magazine article.  Here's an online link:

https:/…

…content/uploads/2018/12/G0256.pdf

Page 42 is where you will find the reference. 

It's embedded in an article on the, "The Interchangeable .40-70's" - which, in itself is fun to read.  The premise of the article is what would happen back in the day (this 1956 article speculates, "say 75…

…years ago" (1881?) if someone walked into a store and requested, "A box of .40-70's, Please."  The article goes on to state, "there has never been a, 'caliber" with more non-interchangeable cartridges to its credit than the .40…

…-70."  This reminds me of the other recent thread we have going where various similar .40 caliber cartridges are referenced.  There's discussion of…

…the 70 grain powder designation (and actual charge in different cartridges).  The whole point of referencing the Winchester .32-70 was to use it as an example of the smallest caliber cartridge that used a 70 grain powder charge.

Very fun.

…out at Roger's shop and my traveling partner was Walt Hallstein.  Walt dealt with a lot of restorations.  The cost to restore a gun can easily be $7000.  A lot depends on what you start with and how fancy you want the gun. Many times all that is needed to do a restoration is the receiver.

…what they called the 45-85-285?  Again, I am not sure what Winchester called it?  But there is no argument, it is the same length as a 45-70 WCF.  I have both guns.  The 45-85 WCF is nothing but a 45-90 with less powder.

I think you are right but how did one tell the difference?  The Lightning 45-85-285 is the same length as the 45-70.

Here are 2 attachments showing these cartridges.

…inconsistent with updating changes to their engineering drawings. I have seen numerous examples of this over several different models, not just the 70's. The spring dimensions could have been changed and never documented.

…  I called Classic Arms and Parts about M70 firing pin springs, they have both pre war and post war springs, but not the one for the Hornet.  I was given a part number from a 1962 Winchester…

…parts catalog of #7370. I am curious as to the differences with the standard spring.

Meanwhile I will be satisfied with a standard spring.

….  But the Colt Express rifle in .40-60-260 took a cartridge that was interchangeable with the .40-65 Winchester.  The Bullard .40-60, .40-70 and .40-75 is interchangeable with the Winchester .40-65 cartridge.  Just like the .45-85 WCF takes the .45-90 case and the .45-85 for the…

…Marlin M1881 and Colt Express rifle uses the .45-70 case, the .40-70 WCF case is not the same case that the Bullard .40-70 uses.  As I stated above, the Bullard takes the .40-65 case (.45-70 length) and the M1886 Winchester in .40-70 uses a .45-90 length case.…

…):

.40-60, .45-60, .45-75 and .50-95

The Winchester M1886 series (all of the below are chambered in the Marlin M1895 except the .38-70 and the .50's):

shorter (.45-70 length):  .38-56, .40-65, .45-70

longer:  38-70, 40-70, .40-82, .45-90, .50-100, .50-110…

….50-95.  From the M1886 series, the Lightning Express rifle came in .38-56, .40-60 Colt (really .40-65 Winchester) and .45-85 (.45-70 case)

 

Quite the brain-teaser   If I don't have all of the above correct, I would enjoy being corrected.  I didn't do any reference checks,…

….  There's very few of the cartridges mentioned above that I haven't owned a least one rifle in.  I've never owned a Winchester M1886 in .40-70 but I did have two Marlin M1895's in .40-70 (which is a whole lot rarer find than this chambering in a Winchester '86).

Everything that I have found online state that the barrel length…

It definately is the target model (hooded front sight, adjustable Redman peep rear sight, six position front sling mount).

…Model 94/64, Winchester began stamping the "W" in late February 1939, and discontinued it in mid February 1941.  Thus far I have documented nearly (700) of them with the "W" stamp.
