The .45acp cylinder to be here Monday. It’s in Raleigh. As the cylinders easily swap on my 3.5 in Birdshead and 7.5 in Vaqueros I’ll try to fit this one to them. Shot some .45 acp srp loads in the AO 1911, gun ran fine and rang and clanged my steel.

 It may not be a good candidate for a full restoration.  We will see when it gets here. The first step would be to remove the plating, which can be a challenge, especially with gold.  In any case, Dave is 2 years behind on restorations so the “after” shots are a ways off if it goes to restoration.

I have a 45-55 (405) carbine load that I load for my 1886 carbine that is pleasant to shoot.  I think I will stick with that.  I have a sharps 45-90 if I want more zip.

Standard 70 grain loads with the 405gr bullet off the bench will loosen your fillings. The 500 gr load is simply painful.
The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: 76 Firing Pin ??
« Last post by BillKilgore on Today at 04:58:26 AM »
The original 76 did not have a firing pin spring. Essentially it was a free float firing pin. Here is the breech-pin piston and firing pin. The piston is resting on a small wood chip to keep it from rolling backwards.

Should get you shootin'. My go to cold blue is Formula 44/40 Instant Cold Blue. Works very well but, the parts need to be totally de-greased and dried.  Enjoy your shooter. Inspired me enough to take mine to the next match. ;D

Thanks, MGMRADIO/Mike:
I will also try for a copy via a member here.
Since barrel done years ago, twist will be interesting.
It could match an original or be Larry's preferred 36" or 32".
