Scenes like that remind me that beautiful places still exist as they did years ago. Went to the Superstitions last year, there’s something about that place that speaks to me. Can’t explain it.

Sad to say, but with all the GD developers, we are starting to lose those places. Kinda like the "Eagles" song, "call someplace paradise, kiss it goodbye".

I have always wondered why the Winchester 92 sold so well after the release of the '94.  Now clearly the '94 sold a good 6-7 to one, but even then I couldn't quite figure out why the 92 was still such a great seller.  And then I came across some ammunition catalogs from 1905...

The model 92 WCF cartridges sold for 40% less than the cartridges for the '94.  That's a big difference, it also explains why most '92's tend to look about 405 more worn than your average '94.

The .30 WCF just leaves all the old pistol cartridges in the dust...  But those "weak" pistol cartridges had proven themselves as capable of harvesting game at reasonable ranges, and a blue collar man could afford to learn how to shoot his '92 very well.
Take a look at this thread: for an explantion of the problem.  The original Winchester bolt/ejector seems to be different than the replacement Uberti rifles.  I wound up turning the Jamison brass to Uberti size.

Here's a bit of info I typed up in my Project Rifle thread, look down toward the bottom of page:
