Long gun clones (1878 Shotguns and Lightning/Burgess Rifles)
« on: October 31, 2012, 06:17:51 PM »
We have started a "Child Board" for long guns

Howdy

Well we got our first "Lightning" question here the other day and it occured top me that we have a forum for the Winchester Cowboy rifles (encompasses clones and originals) but no place for our pards to look and ask about the various (and sometimes nefarious) lightning clones. I personally do not want to exclude the other Colts rifle, the Burgess, or the SXS shotgun as they have all come (and some gone) but are still available in the marketplace.

How about hearing from the bretheren?

Regards,
HH

I will no longer respond to the rants of the small minded that want to sling mud rather than discuss in an adult manner.

I say go for it.  Good idea.  No need to keep creating new forums that will only have a couple of posts in them.  No reason not to include "Colt clones" in all their forms; otherwise we won't fill this forum up either.

Major2, are you planning on running for office soon?  Seems your opening fits politician speak very well.  You are correct sir the title does have the words "Colt" and "Clone" there, as any good politician would you failed to also state "Single Action Army refered in title as SAA."

Now that I have rattled your chain for fun.  ;D  I would see no problem with the forum to include any and all firearms designed by Samuel Colt and Company and clones of said designs.

Have I ever mentioned "I hate the term CLONE????"  If I haven't, allow me to express "I Hate the term CLONE."  If they were clones, they would be exactly like the prototype and work exactly like the prototype.   
I prefer the term REPRODUCTIONS.  So what???
Now, we're not exactly runnin out of bandwidth on this forum.  So, if it looks like a Colt, smells like a Colt, ad sticks to our shoes like a Colt, why not include it here?  We need a little more action anyway.  Heck, since USFA has gone Tango Uniform (military term) we should graciously include the USFA folks, oh wait, USFA was reproduction of a Uberti.  Ah well, close enough.  We'll should adopt 'em anyhow.
What was the original question anyway????

I like "reproduction" as well.  But in the true sense, all our cowboy guns are just that; reproductions of 19th century firearms.  I don't propose to get into a lengthy picking of nits on what is called what.  It just seems to me we sometimes suffer from the same thing that all huge entities suffer from.  Look at General Motors.  They had way too many brands under one roof.  People get distracted easily enough.  I like the good ol KISS rule.
