    Preacherman said to put these in this forum as it is general gun discussion. Not very controversial, nor state of the art mega death blasters, just Steinbeck Country treasures from a slower paced era! :)








    1923 Colt Army special 32-20 and a 1902 Winchester 1892 Octagon rifle .32WCF

    I will post more on this thread another day. I only used 90KB per image, I have to get it up to 500 or so on the next go round!
    The .22WRF groups 4" at 25yards, 2" at 15 yards and has about 1000FPS with those winchester loads, The .22wrf 1890 is a tackdriver about half the pistol's groups and another 250FPS. These flat points are non destructive death on any thing under say 30 pounds! :)

    The 32-20 pistol , is pretty heavy duty for such a caliber. I load 4 grains of Unique under a 115 Oregon cast for 850fps in it and 2" 25yard groups. The 1892 32wcf has a rough bore, it is a new acquisition and shoots about 4" at 50 yards and I haven't chrono'd it yet! I Also have a 5.5" Colt Bisley in .32wcf , but it is at another location I don't get to often. :)

    Ahh, a second model receiver .22WRF 1890. A man after my own heart. I love the old stuff, particulary the 1890s and 1906 Winchesters. Here is a 62A and a 1906 Expert.

    And here is my grandfather's 1896 S&W first model hand ejector and a S&W .38 topbreak with pearl stocks.

    They might be from a "slower era," but these guns will still kill you just as dead. :evil:

    Nice pics. :)

    Gordon,
    Those are two nice pairs of Colts and Winchesters. I wouldn't mind having the 32-20 pair.


    wundudnee,
    OK, where's my sign? I've owned and handled a lot of S&W's but never an 1896 First Model Hand Ejector. So since the cylinder latch is missing just how do you open the cylinder on this model???
    PS, you got a PM from me.

    Joe

    Gordon,
    I'm not trying to step on your thread, but there was some interest in these watch fobs. So I am adding another picture.

    J Miller, You don't need a sign. :neener: You just pull the ejector rod forward to unlock the cylinder, swing the cylinder out normally, then push it the other way to eject the empty brass. The cylinder locks with the topstrap so that it locks true and straight. I was always surprised the design didn't last longer.

    Very nice indeed. I think if I had the money and were to collect anything, it would be old lever guns. There's just something that appeals to me about the old guns, especially in calibers like .32-20 and .38-40.

    Now I think I have to go find my Robert Johnson discs and play the .32-30 Blues.
