The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Load Data for the 40/60

 Black River Smith,
What a SPLENDID piece of writing!!! (Did your wife proofread it?[mine did!])
Obviously must get that 49th Edition ASAP!
Joe Salter has a box of old 45-70 smokeless on his site right now… procedure to download a pic is beyond me at the mo…
BTW I might have waxed a little bit too eloquent in my zeal to support my faith in the toggle action on another site…..if anybody notices…not apologizing but I am owning up..
I spoke with Jathan at the Cody museum yesterday about the carrier size on those British Army trials rifles….that carrier DOES make for a longish action, but a smooth one, and the innards don’t fall out…
Thanks Again!
Upcoming Musters / Re: 2023 GAF Grand Muster

I've already printed out my registration for the Grand Muster. Filling it out to mail in here soon. Now just need to figure out what weapons and country to shoot before I leave. May have to bring a few and decide there. Looking forward to it and praying no physical problems to keep me away this year. Also planning to stop at the WW1 Museum on the way.

The Longbranch / Got a customer MAD yesterday
« Last post by DeaconKC on March 28, 2023, 11:31:31 AM »
I work part-time in a nice gun store here in Arkansas. We carry a nice selection of CAS guns too. Yesterday a couple walked in to look around. They were nice folks, looked to be in their 40s and the gent asked to see a New Uberti .45. Cool, I bring it out, show him how to see if it's unloaded, hand it to him. He admires the gun and then starts to do a spin with it! I just tell him [quietly] "Please don't do that." He gives me a dirty look, hands me the gun and tells the lady with him "C'mon, let's go." and they leave the store. I walk over and tell the owner what just happened, and he was fine with it. We don't allow flicking revolver cylinders shut or flipping old shotguns closed either. Anyway, just WHY do people want to do stuff like that with property that doesn't belong to them?

Gunsmithing / Re: Need 66 loading gate (spoon)
« Last post by Abilene on March 28, 2023, 10:18:40 AM »
Shotgun Boogie does not make a ladle for the '66.  His loading gate is "66 Style" for the '73.  Which means the scoop goes all the way to the front of the loading gate like a '66 making it easier to load because it doesn't have to push in as far.  But not interchangeable with the '66.

 :)  Hey Reverend Chase  ;)

First and foremost, my condolences on your loss (sniff sniff snivel).  Secondly, it's called a "Ladle" in correct parlance.  You have several choices:

Cowboys and Indian Store use to sell a reinforced ladle.  Don't know if they still do.

VTI Gunparts sells a reinforced Ladle.

And, your best bet is Shotgun Boogie.  Shotgun Boogie sells the best Ladle on the Planet, bar none.

You can also purchase a new OEM Ladle.  Clean the back next to the tab.  Then build a "dam" around the ladle with tape and make a fillet out of JB Weld.  Let it cure overnight.  Probably last forever (mine has).  Or you can make a little brass gusset and silver solder it to the back of the tab.

The Winchester Model 1886 / Re: Taylor's Pedersoli 1886
« Last post by greyhawk on March 28, 2023, 08:11:26 AM »
I'm not familiar with the Miroku '86 but am going to guess it has some "safety" features on it.  I'd prefer the Pedersoli for that reason, as well as the fact that everything they make is usually excellent.  The Chiappa is nice as well, no safety, but the Pedersoli barrel is likely the best.

I have a Chiappa --if the Pedersoli barrel is better ...its a hair split - the difference is somewhere beyond my shooting ability

you are proly right     I have a Uberti 76 that has Pedersoli barrel (rumour says) --- its a tad more shiny inside - maybe fouls a little slower with blackpowder ? but my first outing with a tang sight on the Chiappa I was seriously impressed.

One option is to buy a replacement loading gate and reenforce the tab. Having read about their tendency to break, I used JB Weld to reenforce mine when I first bought the gun. The gun isn't used heavily, but so far it's still working.
