.38-40
« on: August 16, 2022, 12:41:41 PM »
Is anyone currently making a SASS-legal rifle in .38-40 (.38WCF) other than the Uberti 1873 short rifle?  I am looking for a second rifle in that caliber and I would like to get something different from the 73 that I already have (I'm funny that way.)

There is the Uberti 1866.  Not a whole lot different than the '73, but that's one.  20 and 24" rifles and 19" carbine.

Doesnt look like they are currently offering it in anything but .45 Colt or .38 special.  I know Chiappa used to make a 92 in .38-40 (and since I want it for Wild Bunch --a 92 would be just fine.) but that doesn't appear to be offered right now.  I see a few original 92s on GB, but the condition of those is a crap shoot.

You are looking at generic Uberti offerings.

Cimarron still carries the '66 in 32wcf, 38wcf, 44wcf, 44 Spcl, 38 Spcl, 45 Colt.  Here's one:

Of course, finding one in stock or waiting on a list is another matter.
