…new cartouches. US markings on the early M1897 Trenchguns was a big problem. I had to laugh at a few of them. Garands, M1903's, were especially targets of the fakers. These fakes are done intentionally to drive the prices of junk guns up. If you are going to pay $4,000+ for a redone gun, you had

…Ron-

I assume we're talking about a Lyman 48WJS receiver sight (or 48WH if a Target model)?

Having the rifle checked over is always a good idea, but I suspect the issue is simply that the receiver sight is not original to the…

…rifle.  Hence it was never factory sighted with its current sight combination.  If it is not a Target model and was made after 1950, it is very unlikely that the receiver sight was factory installed since the factory dropped the Lyman 48WJS sight

I'm wondering if this is "normal" for pre-64 Winchester 70's.

  

No, not normal, but I can't suggest what to do about it beyond making that adjustment in your rear sight.  Hard to believe it passed test

…have a pre-64 model 70 with iron sights (front globe and receiver peep sights by Lyman). A gunsmith has looked at the front sight and told me that it is dead center. 

…grain cartridges from Remington, Winchester, Federal, and S&B with similar results. 

I'm wondering if this is "normal" for pre-64 Winchester 70's. Any of you experienced a similar amount of windage offset from mechanical zero? 

I wouldn't mind if this is just manufacturing variances. It

…Carla,

If his 69A rifle only has the 2 holes for the Lyman peep sight then it is likely either the 69A Match rifle or the later 69A Junior Target Shooter Special rifle.  Both are more rare and desirable to collectors than the standard 69A variations.  If it has 3 holes and a flat side then it…

…is a G6901R and used the Winchester 80A rear peep.

The reason I mention the G6903R Junior Target Shooter Special is that model came with the Lyman 57EW but the receiver was also grooved for the Weaver tip-off scope mounts so the best bet would…

…69A so if you can find one that would be an option also.

A  more obscure solution would be to add a Boone Saturn scope, these were low-power fast target acquisition scopes that utilized the 2 Lyman mounting holes and did not require any additional modifications.  They show-up on eBay about once per

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!

Steve,  I have done a little annealing but not of the .33 Win from .45-70.   Use a larger baking pan of water.  Propane torch and heat the mouth to a dull red in a dark garage, tip it over into the water.  Tend to also…

…don't anneal that much.  BTW, no way would I have an open flame in my reloading room!  Tim

  

Tim, if you spend some time on the long range target shooter or bench rest shooter forums they will teach you how to anneal brass.  Go on youtube and watch the process.  Heat the brass just shy of…

…seeing orange and let it cool naturally.  You will still be in the 700 degree plus range. You are burning off some of the metal, tin, when you get it overheated. Dropping it in the water actually hardens it up some.
