  1. Marlin 1894 Lever Guns
    I have a 1894 .30 WCF rifle that belonged to a friend now deceased. I think he brought this rifle from Alberta in the 50's but don't know anything else about it. It was manufactured about 1912 and has a 26 inch barrel. The stock.is unusual. I have an 1892 .32 WCF with a.straight grip...
  2. Gunsmithing
    The sear for the upper barrel on my son’s Winchester Select Energy failed during trap practice this weekend. I have looked into having it repaired by a couple of local shops but nobody wants to work on Winchesters because it’s hard to get parts. I phoned the closest authorized repair smith (90...

    Hello all, this is my first post on the forum! I have a post-64 Winchester Model 70 in a .270 win (made in ‘82 according to the serial number) that used to belong to my grandfather. I am looking to purchase a .300 WM rifle in the near future, and I am curious if it is possible swap out the...
  4. Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I am a new hunter this year and I've got a compact 7mm-08 Savage Axis. My rifle was sighted in with the Super X Winchester power point in 140 grain. I cant find them anywhere so I ended up buying the Hornady Whitetail in 139 grain. I noticed that the bullet was just a tad bit taller than my...

    I found a NOS Winchester/Daisy 1894 saddle gun on the auctions and won it. it has wood stocks, unlike the Daisy versions. It struck me as very odd that a Winchester lever gun would come sans butt plate? I bought an old Remington butt plate that wouldn't fit the Crosman 160 Pellgun I was...

    I have recently been given a post '64 Top eject 30-30 by my grandfather and all works well except the spent casing will extract from the seating but will not eject out of the block unless the lever is slammed hard and i mean much harder than John Wayne ever has. My grandpa and i are working on...
  7. Handloading Procedures/Practices
    I am looking for some suggestions on some .30-06 reloads to try in a new Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 rifle. So far I've tried 165 grain Speer spitzer points with 55.5 grains of H414 powder, 165 grain Hornady spitzer points with 55.5 grains of H414 powder, and factory Winchester loads with 150...

    I have a rifle "Model 52 Winchester .22LR" but it is has a lever action, not bolt action, which is what I find in reference to Model 52 anywhere online. Really odd duck as far as I can tell. Perhaps special order? It is an heirloom but no one left to ask. It has a fancy checkerboard design on...

    I'm hoping I've found a place that might be able to help me. I have a Winchester Model 74 .22 LR, Serial 243XXXX, manufactured in 1949. It is in reasonably good condition. (I'll attach pics.) My grandfather used it to shoot starlings away from his martin houses (birds, for anyone not...

    kay I just picked up a Winchester Model 70 Sporter Magnum 300win mag. On the side of the barrel it says "Winchester Model 70 Sporter Magnum 300 win mag" ... The problem is I can't find any information on a Sporter Magnum Model 70. Are these the same as a regular model 70 Sporter? Does anyone...

    Hello, I have a model 270 Winchester .22 cal pump and it fails to eject fired rounds. I have replaced the firing pin, firing spring and ejector and still no luck. I have to turn it sideways and tap just to get them to come out. I've cleaned the crud out of it but not sure what else to do so any...

    link deleted After posting this video, I've been wanting to give the Winchester XPR a try. I've usually been a Browning, Remington, and Ruger guy, but for under $550, I may have to give the XPR a shot. Let me know what y'all think.

    Hello all, call me Dave! I am in possession of a Winchester Model 70 Westerner in 30-06, serial #G159xxxx (presumably a post 1964 model, based on the "G" prefix I believe?) I have a couple questions about the rifle in question... 1) I'm looking to update the rifle to a newer, more modern look...

    I never understood people that hate on the .270 Winchester.. its an amazing round with long range accuracy, good ballistic coefficiency retaining at long range, and a great medium to big game round. Any idea why people hate on it? lol
