magazine tube replacement

(1/2) > >>

cactus joe:
I have a old marlin 94 in .38-40 probably manufactured in the mid 1920's. I would like to change out the beat up mag tube. My question is instead of only limiting my search to tubes that hold .38-40 rounds can i also include .44-40 tubes? I'm not sure but aren't the rounds pretty much the same size?

Yes.

Dont know what Marlin did but we used to use a piece of old electrical conduit to replace winchester tubes (still have my dolly/thingy under the lathe that I used to expand the conduit to correct size) ----

these days a piece of 16mm chinese curtain rod from the homemaker store is exactemo fit for the mag tube rings on a winchester - takes all the 44 size rounds (winchester 30/30 group was same size tube although they a little smaller rim size) 

18mm tube from the same store is same exactemo fit for the 1876 uberti (45/75)

This stuff is thinner wall but perfect OD -- cheap --and it works.

cactus joe:
Looks even expanding my search for a mag in .44-40 is coming up empty. Thought there would be more available.
