The Winchester Model 1873 / Re: Shipping
« Last post by 1961MJS on Today at 08:11:16 PM »
Your dealer has a poor memory.  There has always been an outer box.  They have various size outer boxes depending on how many rifles, but the single rifle outer box fits very tightly around the white box.  The outer box has the Cimarron logo on it, as Cliff mentioned, for the last number of years, but even before that there was always an outer brown box.

I always recommend removing the stock before shipping any long gun.  The tang area is easily cracked if pressure is applied to the center area of the box, even if properly packed.


And my dealer was nice enough to give me the outer box when I picked mine up.

STORM / Re: Why are there no conversions options in .44 Caliber?

One could buy a .45 Colt Uberti Richards conversion (which has the corect bore for original .44 Colt heeled bullets), then fit a .44 Special cylinder that was bored to case diameter full length.  Then you could shoot heeled bullets.

You would need to shoot black powder though, unless you are fine with just getting one load from the case.  I found loading .375" heeled .38 long Colt bullets is that when you use smokeless propellants, you need to excessively crimp the heel into the case to create enough back pressure. The cases tend to tear where the petals of the crimp die join on the case mouth.  Black powder explodes, so it does not need as severe of a crimp.
Lookin' good, pard! It will be good to hear how they perform for you.

I am REALLY excited!  This is my first match with my "Ideal" armory:  A pair of 1860 Richards conversions, an 1860 Henry (HRA "New Original Henry). and my Rossi Overland hammered coach gun!  This is kind of special because always before I was using "Author guns"  1872s, 1860 R-Ms, 1860 Richards, all in varying flavors. (calibers, barrel length, finish).  While I might have them for a year or so, they would either have to be sold or returned so I could get the next batch.

While I did write about my Kirsts, I purpose bought those to be my main match guns, and they were not "Author samples".   They were (or should I say are, because I still have them) close to my ideal pair.  There was, however, always that niggling "but they are only 5 shot!" floating around in my  "always striving for authenticity" head.  This pair is PERFECT!

The Leather Shop / Re: SC Gallup, Sort Of

I just noticed a typo in the subject line of this thread. I had "RC Gallup" and it should have been "SC Gallup". That's corrected, now

Afternoon all. At least I think it’s afternoon over there. I could be wrong.

I’ve arrived at my final destination in The Heart of Darkness. I have air conditioning though, so i can’t really complain. We have WiFi here, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. Not much goes on other than turning wrenches on airplanes.

RCJ, if you goggle Wisconsin old west shootists you will get to their
main website, then go to guns in the hills or forms page. Seems we had this
problem other years.
