Is this a trick question? OF COURSE you should get a new gun.  ;)

may have to wait a bit.  In honor of my safe return (agent orange not withstanding) from RVN 50 years ago in Dec the AR15A1 I ordered finally arrived Tuesday.  A few months before I can drop another major purchase.

That is a worthy cause for delay -- and celebration.

1 year later, found a Winchester (Miroku) 1892 44 mag 20 inch Carbine should be in hand next week.  Went to Cabelas yesterday to see if they could order one.  They don't do special orders since Bass Pro took over.  He asked what I wanted looked on the computer and found one and only one in the entire network.  Called the store, the gun had arrived the day before and had not been un packed.  CC number email and phone number and about 3 min and said rifle is heading to Glendale Cabelas.

Isn't it GRAND when a plan works out?  Congrats :D

Last year about this time, I found a Browning 1895 (Miroku), as new in box from 1982.
A phone call to the Omaha Cabela's, to check its availability, I learned it had several inquiries but no deposits as yet.
Debit Card and some Cabela bucks and its was winging it way to me to scratch an itch on my bucket list.... ;D   
when planets align...do the deal !

I have been looking for a Winchester/Miroku 1873 Carbine in 44 WCF for a couple years.  Came across a very nice (dark wood) '73 rifle during the search and bought it.  Love the rifle but the desire for the carbine continues.  I can only hope I get lucky someday as the Cpt did.

Several years ago found a refurbed miroku 73 carbine in 44-40 came from cabelas and still had the winchester plastic on the barrel.  Have no clue what the refurb was.  Perhaps ordered paid for and returned to cabelas looks pristine to me.  Wish I could get ruger to fit 44-40 cylinders in my OMVs

There are 9mm cylinders available for the Blackhawk. Maybe find a couple of those and have a gunsmith ream them out to .44-40?

 :)  Deacon  ;)

Are you speaking of After-Market cylinders (expensive)??  Ruger in their infinite wisdom won't sell cylinders to the unwashed masses.  Ruger will "fit" cylinders to your gun, usually same same caliber but wouldn't fit a 9 to a 44.

Hiya Coffin! I have run across some 'orphans' those presumably separated from Blackhawk conversions for sale in the past. I was not aware of aftermarket ones for the Vaquero/Blackhawk.

Just looking through my safe and I have a spare 44 magnum cylinder for a Vaquero. I was thinking the magnum case was bigger, but then looked at the dimensions and that coil work for reaming out to 44-40.
