Coming clean today... when I quipped about changing my avatar & tag line, I was doing inpatient treatment. Diagnosis S-4 of the big "C". An example of my depraved sense of humor 😉😁 Projected expiration was Jan 24. Happy to report I'm still reading posts & making light of it all. And, a few more humorous tales have been added to my stand-up... or lying down routine- as applicable 😁 No worries, I'm now officially in remission 👍. Working on stamina & looking forward to deer hunting (mid-December hunt is with the 76).

Stealing Oregon Bill's line:
Long Live those 76 shooters !

So far, so good 😆
Regards,
Slim

The Darksider's Den / I had some Pyrodex
« Last post by Froogal on Yesterday at 03:41:37 PM »
I had some Pyrodex, so I experimented a little.

.3cc of 4227 under 1.9cc of Pyrodex 3F. Shot them in my Cimarron .45 Colt, 4 3/4" barrel.

A little more recoil than I was expecting but other wise worked very good.

Main goal is to use up that Pyrodex.

Clean up was about the same as with Goex.

Thanks for another interesting video. Brought back memories. Many years ago, I bought a Campaign hat at a Flea Market for 17 bucks. I used it for Wild Bunch.

Gunsmithing / Re: H&R Handi rifle tang sight
« Last post by Galen on Yesterday at 08:18:50 AM »
I have a Buffalo Classic with a Marbles tang sight mounted. The rifle shoots well enough out to 300 yards. The gunsmith mounted the sight to the stock, looks good and has remained solid for about 25 years.

Gunsmithing / Re: H&R Handi rifle tang sight
« Last post by Coffinmaker on Yesterday at 08:08:19 AM »

 :) Hi Reverend P.B.C  ;)

Well I'm the "Nay Sayer" in the crowd.  I have owned and shot three different Handi Rifles.  First was a .44 Manglem, Then a .45 Colt followed up by my favorite 38-55 Target.  I really like the Handi Rifle.

I have also shot with some folks who elected to install a "Tang" sight.  As you are aware, there is no "Tang."  The sight must be mounted into a wood Butt Stock.  Wood is not stable.  It moves (sometimes a lot).  I have installed two for "others" neither of whom were happy with the long term results.  I don't recommend it.

I do however, Recommend a "Smiths Enterprises"  ladder sight assembly.  Has positive stops on the ladder and the basic sight is a Buckhorn.  Being attached to the barrel makes it very stable.  I put one on all my rifles.  Give it a serious look.

I don't but will keep that in mind.  I'm sorry you missed this one.
