Righto!  Uberti does indeed chamber the Russian in .44 Russian (as they SHOULD!  :)  ) as well as .45 Colt.  I know where there are some nickled .44 Russian Russians in stock, if anyone is looking.

I have 62 year old wife ....  I graduated high School when she was 8   :o   

Mine was 3 when I graduated. But it was several years later when we got together...

Planning on using my Swede Mauser. Don't have a proper Boer Mauser, so the Swede will have to be close enough. Plan on using it at one of the Sept Iowa Muster. When I started reading about the long range portion going out to 500 yards, well, At the Grand Muster "Ivan" was having trouble using enough "Kentucky windage" to get the Mosin Nagant on target at just 300. Soooo what rifle might I use, and then what impression can I use with it?

For all of you:
I have a 45-90 and a Marlin 45-70 also a 40-82.All rifles do very well and have gotten me meat over the years.  The only powder that I use in all of them is 3031.  As you say, I too have done alot of research over the years and this powder along with 58 grains of the stuff is what I have used over the years along with Hornady's excellent 300 grain jacketed flat-nose bullet.  I have never had any complaints nor have any of the game I have gotten protested--much!  Of the three calibers that I have used, the 40-82 shoots the flattest over the long distances.Of course I have also used alot of BP but do prefer the 3031.  Now there will no doubt think that I am full of beans but this is what I use and have used since 1968 when I got my 45-90. So, for what it is worth, I thought that you might like to read what someone else is doing.  The bullet that I use in the 40-82  is the 250 grain Barnes that I got a whole gob of several years ago.

 Don't be too sure.  I've got a Uberti #3 3rd Model Russian,  caliber marked "Cal. 44 S. & W. Russian"  and it will only chamber the Russian case.  I likes it.
Gentlemen, Anyone got an old Lyman or Redfield steel receiver sight for a Marlin 39A?  I don't want to break the bank, but I'm really not into the new aluminum ones.  Let me know what you have.  Thanks!

It took just short of two months for the grips to ship from Russia ....

The seller was very pleasant and communitive, and the  post did say  6-8 weeks , being as how Russian Post, US customs and USPS was handling the shipment

I have sent Wildman1 set on this morning and fitted my set ...

the first photo is my gun as I got it WWII armory refresh with plastic grips and the Cold war pleather-ish holster.

My gun is an Izhevsk Armory made in 1943 , in the second photo , with correct wood grips installed and leather holster by World War Supply.

The grips, reasonably easy to fit , just the middle spacer on mine need thinning ( easy with sandpaper on  a flat surface and and rub the grips over it )  the two outer scales fit fine.  OEM screws are reused.

The grips come un-varnished ,  I used my normal finish Skidmore's cream then Johnson's finish wax.
I like the new look

Kinda what I expected when I asked them for a 44 Russian, figured it would chamber everything up to 44 Special. Don't think the rims on the 44 Colt will work tho.

 :D  The only time I remember Cimarron/Uberti really stepping on their ... Ahem ... doing something silly is when they did some Open Tops actually chambered for 44 Colt.  Should not chamber 44 Spl.  Most Open Tops are chambered for 44 Special and only "marked" 44 Colt.

I don't shoot Suppository guns much anymore.  When I did However, I had a severe LUST for a pair of 3 1/2 inch barrel Schofield, modified to to run Moon Clips with 45 ACP.  Since I couldn't shoot a Schofield worth beans, I gave that idea smooth up.  Every now and then thought, I still have that thought (it hurts to think sometimes).
