I would so love to jump on this...

But unfortunately no matter how pretty, I have bills to pay.

 Add a peep sight on the tang...

Le sigh...


  1. You would do a lot better with one of the clones of the '92 Winchester or the Marlin 1894. They are both much lighter and many times stronger.

    I own an 1894C Marlin and have reached slightly over 2000 fps with a 158 grain Hornady XTP hollowpoint and Hodgdon's LilGun powder. I also have one of the Rossi clones of the '92 Winchester, this one the octagon barreled rifle in .45 Colt, with that I can just about equal the old Remington 300 grain factory load in .45-70.

    There is a reason that the factories did not come out with the high speed loads in the old WCF rounds until the '86 and '92 Winchesters.

  2. I like the way it looks- almost pre-school.

    Besides Chaparral is a good Italian company that makes other clones being sold today. My Colt conversion open-top was a Chaparral that shot better than the wife's Tauraus revolver with a slightly shorter barrel and adjustable sights.


I've had to enable moderation because some bots just can't stop sh1tting where other people want to live......kind of like Liberals.

It's either this or WV...
