SCORRS / Re: 1890 Remington
« Last post by LongWalker on Today at 10:29:43 PM »
I've always liked the 1890.  I never liked that big ol' web on the '75.
I always look at revolvers with an eye to how I can use them once I've fired all 5 or 6 shots (you'll never catch me with an aluminum-framed snubby!).  The 1875 Remington looks like something I would come up after a couple days of no sleep and too much coffee.  Needs a spring-loaded bayonet and it would be perfect.

A beautiful build, very impressive. My real ‘73 is a musket from 1891.  A leather lever wrap will make the lever easier to cycle by making the lever bigger [wider] and giving you more leverage. Makes it gentler on the knuckles too.

I sent him a PM asking if he was okay.  I got a PM back from Marshall Halloway saying that Dick responded but sent it to the Marshall, and he forwarded it to me.
Dick said:

Fine here.  Cold, but fine.

Thank you

I have the dies to reload .38 S&W, so I am actually just thinking of using those in the gun.

 Evening all.

Old Man Winter showed back up and decided to grace us with 6” of new white stuff. Interstate is a mess, but that’s normal. ::)

I learned stick in a 1994 Ford Ranger at 14 or 15, then went to a 2005 Subaru Outback. These days I’m pretty well relegated to work trucks, mostly 6, 10 and 18 speeds. I also have a bit of time in a twin stick Kenworth 8)

A sad little S&W Victory model came into the shop a couple weeks ago. The barrel was cut down to 2", the .38 S&W cylinder has been reamed to .38 Special...

Reaming a .38 S&W with a ,38 Spl reamer leaves an odd shaped chamber. The 38 S&W has a tapered case, wider at the base, so a fired .38 Spl case fired in it will have a wider bulge near the base. Not a safety issue, but if excessively sized too often might show up as an odd crack. It was often done, and if the fired cases get tossed, who cares.

Over the past year I have made multiple attempts to contact him about buying a couple of his Big Lube moulds. Never got a reply.

I learned to drive a stick in my dad's 1970 Dodge 1 ton pickup with a crew cab and duel rear wheels.

Thanks for all the info, y'all. Just an update, I took her to my gunsmith today and did a successful test fire. She times up just right and goes bang.

I fitted a front sight so now I just need to install a proper rear sight and replace the missing screws.
