Ordering a liner and wondering what the original rate of twist was on a second year of production 1873.

Well, my dilemma now is the liners I’m looking at are 18″ and 24″ twist. Not sure which to go with for a 200 grain bullet….

Jim,

Can’t help you with that. There are other members here that have had bore relined that might be able to give you some guidance. I see Redmans has 1 in 25″

I would guess that 24″ would work.  It is a lot faster than original but the 1:18″ is even faster.  Not sure how fast is too fast?  What is the twist of a Modern Repo 1873?
