The Winchester Model 1892 / Re: Why no 1895 thread?

Probably because this is a site dedicated to cowboy action shooting and the firearms associated with those organizations. I am certainly not familiar with all the rules and regulations to the different cowboy action shooting organizations, but I don't recall any of them using the Winchester 1895. It was a late comer that appeared in the late 19th century around the turn of the century, and all of them were chambered for smokeless cartridges. Most of the early production rifles were produced for military use. There is also no threads dedicated to the 1894 probably for the same reason.

Fine gun, I have a Browning in 30-06. More than likely as it is not a SASS caliber is why it is absent.

Then again its fine for the era pre-1898 and are used in musters of the Grand Army of the Frontier.

Nice looking rifles.

What model 1873 Winchester did you have?

I have both Uberti and Winchester 1873 rifles and like them both, but my Winchester is a step above the Uberti rifles. Mine are all 24" barrels. The Winchester in 357 mag/38 spec. and one of the Uberti rifles in 45 Colt are the deluxe models, and the other Uberti in 44-40 is a sporting rifle.

Ain't being retired great?  :)

Sometimes, at least I don't have to call in when I'm sick.

If this is in the wrong spot, I apologize. But, there are three threads dedicated to the Winchester lever guns. The 1895 has been left out!  I recently had a chance to inspect one of these and I'm hooked. My son acquired a 1895 SRC from a co-worker in 30-06. It has some minor issues, but it is pretty sweet. The saddle ring is missing but the bale is intact. Easy replacement. Now, I have to have one.  The recent Oaks, Pa gun show was a disappointment. Very few old guns. So, how about a 1895 Winchester thread?!

Has anyone tried any of the Jamison .40-60 brass in an original 1876? 
I have some that Buffalo Arms made from .45-70 WW cases and they feed and eject correctly from my original 1876.  That is in spite of the the .45-70 cases having a smaller rim.
These Jamison cases might be a good option too.

Uberti model 1873 Short Rifles. The top in .45 Colt and the bottom in .357mag/.38spl.

I've had the .45 Colt for a while now. Very accurate with 250gr plated bullets and TiteGroup. I just got the .357mag/.38spl. I just sold a Mikuru Winchester (in the same caliber) for this new Uberti. Not that I didn't love the Winchester, but when I found another one exactly like my first, I had to jump. (I also have a Uberti SAA in the smaller caliber to match with the rifle.)

All pistol might work for me anyway, the range with movable targets has fixed tables most of the way across, with openings to change targets.
