I have never polished the receiver of my Henry and don't plan on it. I shoot nothing but BP in it.

Silver Creek Slim,

I like the receiver on your Henry.  Looks about like the receiver on my Improved Henry.  Better to sneak up on those bad guys.

Heres a couple......The "66" on the left is an American Arms by Uberti I bought about eight years ago...I've never had a problem of any kind with that rifle, neither are short stroked.

The Henry is a Uberti imported by Cimarron. Is about two years old. Its the one I replaced the original front sight (after it fell out during a match somewhere)  with a 1861 Confederate half dollar.

The 1866 carbine is the one I used as a prop for the Chiricahua Apache painting I did for NCOWS.

I shoot nothing but 2f Goex Balck Powder in them as I do all my guns. I refinished and stained the wood on both guns to a darker american walnut, don't like the red color you see on most Uberti guns.

Most of us make our own cartridge box labels.

Bill, what did you use to remove the finish on the rifles?   When I did my 73 a few years ago I think I used a chemical stripper but I can't be sure. Huh

Will,
I used a chemical stripper I purchased at Lowes. I can't remember the name, but it was the heaviest duty stripper I could find there. I used an assortment of cabinet scrapers to scrape the finish off.

The diamond shape pattern represents a wickiup (Apache Dwelling), The cross is Christian and the line acroass the comb of the rifle represents the red road.

Looks just like mine.  What caliber is it?  Mine is 44 Spl.  I had it altered to shoot the 44 Russians.

Bear with me a bit.  Trinity is teaching me how to post pictures.

The first one is an "ivory" inlay on a '73 stock done by Russ N. Hound from a necklace I wear.

The second one is a brass "surface mount" on a '66 stock.  Russ did the bird as an experiment (I don't think he offers such a thing regularly, though.  Mighty pricey.  You'd have to check with him.) the "tacks" are brass nails with approximately 1/16 heads.  Not traditional or authentic, but I like it.

Now, how do I make 'em smaller, but enlargeable?

Good job!!

But did you move one of the files or is my computer acting up.  It's not showing me the second picture.  I'll send you an email...
