Just received my Chiappa 1886 back from Chiappa, knuckle busting levering on the third round.  They put in a new carrier.  It seems to lever better, still stiff, but my knuckles are still in tact. Now it's time to put some rounds through it.  However, rifle was returned with a stock screw missing and several scratches around a screw on the case hardened receiver forward of the loading port.  Called immediately but they were closed.  Emailed and am awaiting a response.  What quality control!!!

I was going to replace it with a .450 front sight from Power Custom, or just make one, but I don't know if it will work anyway.  Still checking.  To be honest, I'd rather find a Super Blackhawk or .44 Special barrel.  One will show up eventually.  It's not like this has to be done next week.  I've got my 50th Anniversary .44 Magnum Blackhawk I rebarrelled to 7 1/2" to get me by until I get this one built.  I also put a Power Custom hammer/trigger set in it.  It shoots really well.  I just like the old 3 Screw .357 frames better.

Had a guy try to sell me a two tone "Stainless" frame with blued barrel and cylinder Remmy once. But when you look even a little bit closely at it, you could see the casting marks in places like the sight groove and the corners in the frame window. I didn't need a magnet to figure out it was really nickel plated brass.

Thought 'bout that for the station wagon, Maj.

Get up on the I-state headin' west 'bout 0720. Look o'er ta the TV tower. Derned bird sittin' there watchin' traffic. I'll get 'im tomorrow.

Nice day for OFSDARin' it the radar trap otherwise known as Waverly. Intermittent breeze cooled the exposed skin. When it was still, most the time, it was nice. Guilty of one miss 'n hit one knockdown too low to tip it o'er. Had six bonus shots on itsy-bitsy cowboys, triple tap two of 'em got all six. One shooter got four, the rest one er two. Only five showed, the other regulars missed a great day.

Stopped it a small place on the way back ta get stuff for the sausage 'n pasta thing. Didn't have it. Gotta big ole can of Ravioli. The contents got nuked 'n served with a simple crostini. Felt 'n ate like I was eight years old again. Enjoyed the heck out it, it's almost Christmas.

Munchin' on a l'il Monterey Jack for desert. 0345 was a long time ago. Gonna take a snooze 'til tomorrow. Y'all sleep well.

On one of my Receivers, I had to Soak it in Penetrating Oil for two weeks before one of the Screws came loose, the other is still soaking.

Of course they had been driven about two threads below the surface way back when by a previous owner.

The 'plug' screws are supposed to only go in Flush with the outside surface.  But the very thin edge that is the 'stop' is easily overpowered by a unknowing 'mechanic'.

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Ned, I/m not sure if a Vaquero front sight will be tall enough for your 3 screw Blackhawk project. I measured my 3 screw .357, 6 1/2" height is .500, and on my Old Army .44, 7.5, it's .435 You might need a higher front sight to get POI with the adjustable sights.

So a repro Henry  or 1866 would virtually duplicate the original Henry round if in 44S&W American and loaded with 28gr of
Real BP over a 200 gr bullet.  Thanks for the input Sir Charles.

The .44 Henry cf case has a thicker web than an rf case, for the primer pocket, so perhaps a bit less room for powder. Never tried it personally, I just read a lot. About 10 years ago I bought a pair of British/Canadian issue cavalry spurs from a guy who claimed to own an 1866 in .44H cf.

The .44cf Henry cartridge was the same as the .44 S&W American, arrived at from a different direction for the same purpose. I have read that cases can be made by shortening .41 Rem Mag cases. The bullet was heeled, which adds another twist.

I've used pyrodex in muzzle loaders and was happy with it. However, as noted, be meticulous with yer cleaning and do it as quick as possible after shooting. Only used it once in shot shells, and it did fine.

Dr Salisbury's health food for supper, got some nice sweet tators for homemade fries, she's off getting Santa pictures with the kids.  Told Rowdy she'd be late so he's OK with it and not whining he does when she's late. Roll Eyes
