Great guns Mark. I am still missing 4 rounds for my ammo collection. 3 are for the 1895. If you ever see WRACO head stamped single rounds in 30-06, 303 Brit or 7.62 Russian for sale let me know.
I really like people that will shoot their guns.
I picked up the 92 last Tuesday on my way home from the range and I plan to shoot it this coming Tuesday.

Best part of the video is at the 11:00 minute mark.
They wouldn’t have put a firing pin in them otherwise!
Great collection of 95s.

Mark – fantastic video – I greatly enjoyed it! Model 95’s have been part of my collecting for 45 years ago. I am aware a lot of collectors ignore the Model 95, but not me. Sadly, I have never owned a pistol grip M95. That has not been due to a lack of desire. It sure looked like you had a lot of fun shooting them. And that ranch… what a place to shoot them!
Mark – I recognized the top gun on the rack – the .303 – the first one you had fired. It had been in the Lew Yearout collection.
Yes, that one’s in The Winchester Book and attributed to Mr. Yearout. I bought it after he passed and his collection came up for sale.
Patrick – The 303 British and 30-40 Krag are pleasant calibers to shoot in the 1895’s. Standard loads in 35 WCF and 405 WCF aren’t quite so pleasant to shoot.
Maverick – You’re very right. A big part of the reason for my channel is to encourage the next generation to collect and shoot vintage firearms. So many times, I hear from younger firearms enthusiasts that they like older firearms, but don’t want to spend money on guns they can’t shoot.
Chuck – I’ll be looking forward to a range report on that deluxe 44-40 1892.
Thanks so much for watching. Mark
Mark – in the documentation you showed for #5175, I enjoyed seeing the entry below referring to a M95 barrel that had a solid rib installed. There was reference to something to the effect of, “preventing barrel whip.”
Also, I do remember #5175. I recall it is a Turnbull restoration. And as usual he did a magnificent job.

Thoroughly enjoyed this video as well as the many others Ive watched. I certainly appreciate your encouragement of the next generation of collectors. Thats something we all have to do in our way and lead others to appreciate the quality and enjoyment of guns viewed by many as old and outdated.

Once again an outstanding video, Mark! Only issue was that I saw a few of your videos I had somehow missed and stayed up past my bedtime watching them. I agree with shooting these old guns, if they’re mechanically sound we have little chance of wearing them out as long as we take good care of them. Nicely done, thanks for sharing your fun with us!
