BROW / What caliber is my rolling block
« Last post by Logangrimnar on Yesterday at 03:15:18 PM »
So I posted earlier about the rolling block that I purchased hated with an obviously new replacement barrel. It is definitely a remington. It has the number 529 on the top and bottom tang. No other markings (serial number?)
The rifle was sold to me as a 38-55. I slugged the bore by driving a sinker through it. It measures 356! Obviously not a 38-55. Any guesses? I'm probably going to have to chamber cast it but thought I'd ask.

Just went and checked, and happy to report mine is the right one!  To be honest, I'm sort of surprised we've never had that happen before.  (At least, I don't THINK it has..........)  Good luck!

As an aside, I think next year we should take a picture of all the Krags in attendance in one or two racks.  I bet there haven't been that many running Krags together since about 1917!
The Winchester Model 1892 / Source for barrel replacement or relining
« Last post by Doc Holloman on Yesterday at 02:37:14 PM »
I have an original 92 SRC, made in 1904 in .38-40.  Would like to bring it into shootable condition.   It has a couple of issues with bullet feed (at least it does with dummy rounds,) but I think those are solvable.  What is the real showstopper is the condition of the bore.  It is pretty much shot out.

I would like to keep it in .38-40.  I shoot  a 73 in that caliber for Wild Bunch  and reload for it.   So can anyone point me to a source for replacing the barrel or relining it?

Doc sends.

I'm not going to participate if my posts are going to be deleted without explanation.

Suffice to say, you're the only person I've EVER heard say that the Uberti parts guns and the domestic guns were all the same. I know that I don't agree with you and don't know of anyone else who does. 99.99% will say just the opposite. The early guns were indeed just gussied up Uberti's. The machine work, the specs, the polishing, virtually everything about the later guns is not just better but measurably better and that is why people pay more for them. Otherwise, we'd just buy new Uberti's, send them to Turnbull for refinishing and save ourselves time and money.

Anderson was a MASTER with ASM's, he imported the parts and built some beauties.

I had one that he assembled for USPFA and was shown a "Shot" in 1993.

I had traded for it, and later sold it for....  ;)  well ! lets say I did not get hurt  :)
The Barracks / Pick up wrong Krag
« Last post by Blue Eyed Cabellero on Yesterday at 01:17:33 PM »
Was cleaning guns today and realized I came home with the wrong Krag. I pick up the wrong rifle after the final stage. I noticed the sights are not the correct year and the sling is much more worn. If anyone noticed that they ended up with the wrong rifle please let me know. I’ll be glad to pay for shipping both ways. Thank you!

I was excused about this time in 2020 because I said it didn't seem to do because of my recent heart surgery and the Drs. telling me to not go nowhere except an real important t
 one and they 'scusd me.

Actually got into the jury  selection pool for one in 2015.  Defense lawyer didn't think I was suitable because I eve seen him point at me as soon as they got in their huddle. Guess he didn't want a 30 year sober guy on the jury, probably didn't think I would be fair and listen to the BS, I would, I would, and he was guilty, college kid, hit a parked car downtown early Sunday morning and blew almost twice the legal limit because it was plain as could be the meter was off. ;D

Got a appointment with Heather the Heart Nurse what ever they call between a nurse and a Dr.  tomorrow, canceled because I was still in the regular hospital about May 15th.  Might be interesting because I normally am down a pound or two and I weighed 250.2 on my digital scale here and was about 275 last time in her office mid April.  Also we was going to see if I had another breathing type disease and we needed to work the angle of whatever I was having wasn't getting knocked down with the Z pack anti bug pill.  Looks like we might have been right. ;)

The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Needing some 45-60 brass
« Last post by Black River Smith on Yesterday at 01:12:14 PM »
I made this posting about cutting 45/70's down to 45/60 back in 2021.  It works if you want to try it.  Makes the work go a lot faster.
 I have a Chaparral and use Starline brass that requires only minor rim thickness cutting.  If your rifle is a Uberti then any 45/70 casing will work from my understanding.  After the chop saw only light trimming with standard case trimmer (Lyman Universal or such) is needed to get to, final 1.89 after sizing. Sorry, I only make enough 45/60's for my own use, none to sell or trade.  Maybe this will help you since you already have 45/70's on hand.
