…ammo  new is European made.  There  very pricey boxes  of Hornet on GunBroker , 2.00 dollars and up a round.  Hornet brass is  no better at  70 cents to over 1.00 a hull.. buying  the Euro stuff is  worth  50 a box   just for  the brass. 218 Bee is nearly impossible  to find at shows,

An 1886 was passed down and we may need to sell it.

Getting valuations is difficult and we live in an area with no experts.

Model 1886, , 45-70 WCF, SN 39687 (1890?), 26" Octogonal Barrel, Standard Sportman I think. No pistol grip, no etching.

Condition appears to be excellent or

…cash, check, or money order for payment. I can send more pictures to those that are interested. Feel free to pm me on here or shoot me a text at 570-505-9786 ( I can take calls in the evening). I am located in Trout Run, Pa and can ship anywhere in the country. Thanks for taking a look!

…uses the same 300 grain bullet as the .45-60 WCF.  One mold is good for both of these.  Of course that 300 grain bullet was also loaded in .45-70's over the years too.  A versatile bullet indeed.

…d like shooting the 45-90.  It does not hit you as hard as a 45-70 with the heavier bullets.

…will not be short when using the 45-70 or the 40-65.   Both should be 2.10".  Although my 40-65 Bertram brass is short by about .013" and it shoots fine in my 40-65.  Remember…

…these headspace off the rim so OAL is not critical when short.  You can shoot 45-70 in a 45-90 and they are at least .250" short.

Using 45-70 will cause an extra forming step that the 40-65 does not require.  You will actually use a 40-65 die as the first step. It is a lot easier to…

…find 45-70 brass though. 40-65 dies are not that hard to find. So, buy 33 and 40-65 dies if you use 45-70.  If you use 40-65 brass all you need, besides the brass, is the 33 die.   45-90 would require the 40-65 dies too. Then you would have to waste

…!

When forming .33 Winchester brass from 45-70 or 40-65 will the brass be shorter than the factory formed .33 Win brass?

Any advantage of forming from 45-90 brass?

Thanks!

Model 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

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!
