Just finished reading a new book about John Moses from the library, very interesting, I am of the opinion his first was the best.  We likely would have lost WWII with out some of his later ones, esp Ma Duece in the air, but he took the single shot to the highest level.   Mine is a small frame Low-Wall, rebarreled with a Springfield Armory 22 target barrel that has had a Hornet Reamer run up it.  Has Pre War style Weaver 1 inch dovetail rings, no big ugly but useful knobs, I'm told very rare, most were 3/4 or 7/8 inch.  That allows me to mount a El Paso made steel Weaver K'12 with adjustable parallax K-12.  The rest is stock, an original barrel would restore it, original plan was a new barrel or rebore to 38-40, a good original barrel and sights would restore it, but why?   Kind of like a barn find 32 coupe with a full Merc in it, a piece of history.  Will shoot slightly over 1 moa but plenty good for an old Hornet.

I was at an acquaintance's house on Saturday to make a holster pattern for a Ruger GP100.  We we talking about guns and they mentioned they had this old gun. Said it was a single-shot and you open it with a level. I am thinking 1885 Winchester. They show me a letter from the Cody Museum. Sure enough - a 1885 Winchester in .32-40. Someone gave it to them. We go to the basement and I got to handle it. I told them I reload for .32-40. So, I will probably get to shoot it.  ;D

But did they put it in a Remington New Model Army or Colt Open Top? ::)

I still want to get a 38-55 for elk hunting, just for the giggles of it.  That’s where my thought started.

I have a 1893 Marlin in .38-55. I have shot it in some GAF musters.

(Shows what I know, I thought "they" (offended 1st nation persons and tree huggers) "pissed a bit*h" and got that Crazy Horse monument stopped, stalled or filibustered.)
It's a privately family-owned enterprise cash cow, visitor funded.

I have been in trouble for years about it, when someone talks about it being cool I mention just because the white man defaced a mountain, it don't mean the Indian should, my Indian friends tell me Native Americans or First Nation are Liberals who live in the city, Indians are their version of rednecks and normally grew up on the rez and smoke signals is their favorite movie. ;D

For those who remember Salt Crick Rick he is one of them.  He grew up down by White Cloud KS and was a Ioway.

I had another thought.

A custom caliber SA revolver chambered in a shortened 38-55 case. A true 38 caliber (or .375 anyway). Why would I want to do this? Because I don’t know of anybody else who has. Probably wouldn’t be as potent as a 38-40, but it would be interesting none the less.

Been done, didn't catch on.  Seem's PO Akley did it in the 30's.
