ndnchf,

 The welding on the firing pin face would be he easy fix to get a little more reach out of the firing pin. And can always be removed if you wish.
 As for the chamber edge, you may want to try to clean that up a little better even with shooting it with the center fire breach block.
My best,
 Blair

The Winchester Model 1892 / Re: Hey Isom, look what I got!

The front sight, old vs new.
Since it is half of a half-franc, I guess I should call it a quarter-franc.  :D

Another update.  First, I had done up a simple lever wrap before I shot the BP match, and thought maybe I would throw together a simple butt cover.  I mean REAL simple.  :)  I did not have much faith in the super thin material (I'm not even sure if it is actually leather), and I was right as the second photo shows what it looked like after one match.  It did work fine, though.

So next I decided to change out the front sight.  I was all prepared with a punch and small hammer to get the pin out, but when I pushed against it with the punch the pin just came out with finger pressure.  I was expecting the coin would just need to be cut in half and then drilled for the pin, but when the penny came out I found out I needed to cut a notch in the coin.   Dremel and a file took care of that.  Also had to thin the center part of the half-franc so it would fit into the slot on the front sight.  Haven't shot it yet but I like the sight picture a lot better.  I also ordered a lighter ejector spring from Nate Kiowa Jones.  When I open the gun to install that, I might lighten the main spring some as well.

Yep,  IIRC, in Shenandoah there were a couple 92faux -Henry rifles, but one looked real.
