I see a whole new sass gunsmithing modification that all WB shooters will have to have....7 rd  '97 shotgun mod. Load 7 in your 1911 and 7 in your '97. And don't forget about those WB cowboy hats with the brim only on the front.

97's were made to hold 6 two and one half inch shells. They will not hold 7. 1911's were made to hold 7.

Forget the #$%&! order! Make 'em all knock downs, and shoot 'em all 'till they're dead.
Yee-Haw! Grin
Sounds great Smiley.....let us know how many people showed up Friday to set up and how long it took Grin Wink

We did it at A GAF Muster with a Gatling gun! Great fun! But everyone was pitching in. The model of Gatling we were using used steel "tubes" loaded with a .45colt round,  the original model would have used the tubes loaded with loose powder, ball and percussion cap. So everyone that wasn't setting targets was loading tubes and magazines.

... that's because it ain't Cowboy - it's Mexican Revolution. The Cowboy era was gone by then.

Anyone who can count to 5 can count to 7, at least he/she oughta be able to.

I haven't seen the rule change. Does it men that you get more targets to shoot at or more rds to fire at the usual number?

That's like the '97 shotgun, the cowboy era was gone when that came out.

Tell that to the cowboy shooters that single feed their '97's.

I've got to disagree there. All the cowboys and settlers didn't sell their horses and wagons on January 1,1900 and buy Fords. The Native Americans didn't move into houses and drink tea with their pinky stuck up on 1-1-1900. They didn't close down the saloons and brothels and fire the lawmen as the towns had become so civilized. The banditos, renegades and criminals were still out there, the cattle still had to be herded and moved to the railhead. The major conflicts between settlers/military and the Plains indians had ended but there was plenty of wild west at the turn of the century, it just wasn't the same as 30 years before. The cap and ball guns became cartridge guns, muzzle to breech loader to Henrys to Winchesters, double guns to the 1887 to the 1897. The wagon train evolved into the iron horse which eventually became the Model T. Technology drives change, everyone wants an edge or the newest thing. Some cowboys, criminals and lawmen embraced the development of the double action revolver and eventually the 1911, others didn't. The change was a gradual thing. The cowboy era had certainly changed by 1897 but was not gone.

Backing up to wildman's comment. Weell, you CAN get 7 in a 97 if you try hard enough. I started experimenting with these 2 inch shells 3 years ago. My original 2 inch shell held six .33 oo buck shot with the voids filled in with #9 shot. These WB loads use a #408 powder bushing with clay dot powder and a 7/8 oz #9 shot bushing in ww hulls. The wad is a red claybuster cb1138-12. I also put a 5/8 in diameter over shot wad punched from my mty primer container cardboard slipcovers. The hard part was the crimp die. I didn't want to shorten my vintage Bair/Pacific steel crimper so I shortened and modified an old mec aluminum one. The loaded shells are 2 inch give or take a few thous. Seven fit and feed in my three 6 round altered Winchesters (a 97, a Norinco trench and my M12 trench). I have seen them bump the front of the ejection port but I'm thinking that a slight tilt to the left when racking the gun should get the round where it needs to go. Don't know if they'll ever be particularly useful but it can be done.
As they say in France ta-daaa.

Redid the photos. I've found that if I crop my photos before I upload them to my jpeg app they will stay right side up.
