Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

'Tis 22 and sunny. High of 52.

The wood finish on that carbine is different from what I'm used to seeing on the Chiappa Spencers, though I haven't seen a new one in quite some time.  It is also very pretty wood!

Thanks for watching. It is a pretty rifle/carbine for sure.
Tip from a fellow Carbine shooter; work the lever more briskly to and fro. Faster in one fluid motion without stopping. Down and back, down and back. Mine is a .44 S&W Russian version and she likes it rough. The faster the better.  Leave the butt on your shoulder, look down the sights and run that lever as fast as you can, then thumb the hammer back before tripping the hammer.  ;D

Thanks for the tip. I will try that next time I have it out.
Nice video. That's a sweet looking firearm! One year at the NCOWS Nationals, one of the shooters was using a Spencer. He fired the seven rounds and then loaded three on the clock. I've always had a Spencer on my wish list. You will have to make a scabbard for it.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thanks. That would be fun.

 :) Hey There DeaconKC  :D

How the heck are ya??  When the Barrel to Arbor fit is Corrected (Fix'd), it is most always necessary to re-fit the wedge.  It is quite Normal (Setting on a Dryer).  Carefully file the FLAT side of the wedge (toward the Cylinder Face) until you can just fit the wedge to the Retainer Screw Ledge with stiff thumb pressure.  Normally the wedge will tighten up a bit with shooting and yule need to "tap" it back out.  ;D

I was at my normal haunt, friendly LGS, I note his stock of CCw  guns was sort of low.
Consigned guns were depleted, He said business had been brisk.
There were 3 guns waiting on background checks, he'd opened at 10am and it only 11:15am  :)

One of the guns waiting was an older Dan Wesson model 14 consignment that was a little rough.
Even so, it had not been out more that a day, came in Friday and was snapped up Sat morning.
The gun has some red rust blooms just above the grips, and some on the cylinder.
I didn't ask the purchased price and the hang tag was over with paperwork, so I may never know.
But, I put my card down, and Ted will tell the owner I can " convert and card the rust "
It won't be "as new" but it will conserve the finish and blend in rather nicely.
We'll set if I get the job.  :-\

Another consigned gun was remarkable in its asking price.
A Ruger LCR 38cal. it has a LaserMax Laser, the consigner is "INFLATED" wanting $700  :o
 So, the hangtag says $789 that is about $200 + over MSRP retail.
Who knows, it just might get it   :-\

On another note: My wife was pet sitting for a friend last night, so I was a Batchlor.
I decided to go out to dinner and try out my spare cartridge pouch. (above)
So, I get there and see they've gone anti- 2nd, a sign in the window "gun free zone".
This is a new wrinkle, I ate there last week, and no such sign existed  ???

I ate elsewhere last evening, and will continue to do so, sadly I liked that place  :(

The Barracks / Re: Sling for a Winchester 1866 musket

 :) Ah, Um, Well, Rifle Sling??  Or, perhaps Musket Sling??  I doubt it would be much, if any different than the Reproduction slings offered for the Martial Henry Rifle.  Maybe.  I doubt the average, or above average Punter would know the difference.
The Barracks / Sling for a Winchester 1866 musket

What would be the correct nomenclature for the sling that went on the Winchester 1866 Musket? Going to try to find one at the MACA show in Balmer next month.
NCOWS / Re: Small pistol primers

I’ve gone the other way and as I'm down to 2000 LPP but have 8000 SRP I’m swapping lpp 45acp brass for spp [ srp] 45acp. Also have .455 Webley with small primer so my game plan is to use guns chambered in those calibers and consume the spp [srp] as much as I can. Ive also had my 45colt 1873 rechambered to 45acp. I fit a 45acp cylinder to one of my 45 vaqueros too. I machined a couple of spacers to fit on my vaquero cylinders so that the very thin Webley rim brass will work. Gotta be creative.
