Very nice, Mac. I don't have one of the 1908 .25s but have a 1908 .380 Pocket Hammerless to go with my .45. Have yo see if I can get a pic or two up with weekend. Hate to say it, especially on the CAS City board, but not all the old Colts were revolvers. Smiley

That being said, I have a number of SA's, a number of DA's (1878, 1901, 1902, 1909, 1917 and other New Service) and a few autos (1903, 1908, and 1911s) and thoroughly enjoy shooting each and every one of them.  Grin

The only 1866 production that continued after the '73 entered the market place was based on "new old stock" or what we call "parts on
hand."  the actual numbers weren't large.
As far as Central Fire guns, there were somewhere between 1000 and 1100.  I've most hear numbers around 1050.  Again, those guns
were not retailed in this country.  The total of the Central Fire production went to South America.  There have been claims of Central
Fire '66s in this country, however those are guns brought back from way down south.


Unfortunately, a number of the old records are no longer extant for absolute review.

The prime reason behind my trying 2400 was because I had a bunch of it on hand. The secondary reason was because it filled the voluminous case of the 45 Colt better than faster powders. I'm not inclined to look for a load that involves a powder that is hard to find (which includes about everything these days) when I have another option on hand.

Because I loaded 45 ACP with W231 for years (20+) I have lots of it on hand. It is faster than I like and doesn't fill that big case very well but I've got it so I might as well try it before I start looking for stuff I can't find (LOL).

Thanks for the suggestion none-the-less!


231 is a good 45 Colt powder.  Winchester recommended  7.1 grs under a 250 gr bullet.

I experimented with 2400 many years ago (30+) in the .45 Colt and found that adding a paper disc over the powder to keep it positioned to the back of the case improved accuracy.  I used a wad punch and target paper to make the discs.  I did not have a chronograph at that time though.

OH oh  my bad ...I was highlighting the wrench...mine is from UniqueTek, Inc. but works the same.

here is Slick Magic Guns..I got my springs here for my 73 , Marlin 94 , & my 97 Trench, per Coffin Makers suggestion
These transformed the guns like warm butter on glass....  the 73 was sweet but
you would not believe how the Marlin was transformed  Grin

I suppose I was somewhat luckier ..just one on mine ...but it was not more 6000 miles old (the entire set, and was a Grand ) and just one of these 18"ers cost about $250 + the taxes...

And my daughter, same make & model SUV as mine , different tire thought, was another victim, her tire will be about $200  Angry
She is short of Dad gets buy hers too.

Her's also in the sidewall went down quickly and had to changed to the stupid "hide a spare" thing newer cars have now  Roll Eyes
  Fortunately a Sheriff Deputy She knew saw her plight and change it for her....I owe him big time... Smiley
Her car is at the Dealer getting changed this morning too....

after reflection....
my  comment " bungee jump with his scrotum as the bungee "  fate , is too good for the perp !  Angry

The 1873 was entering the market place and selling like hot cakes.  Continuing
the 1866 was not financially a good idea for Winchester.


Far from the numbers of 73's manufactured but the 66's were still produced for 26 years after the introduction of the 73.

About a third of the 66's produced were manufactured AFTER the 73 was available. Mostly during the first 10 years of the 73's production but the 66 wasn't dropped like a hot potato as soon as the 73 hit the market.

I wonder how many of those later ones were the center fire? I have heard numbers but can't recall.
