Re: Distance of tang sight holes

That screw set part # includes a longer screw that accounts for the Marble's base height. Here's an idea to consider.

Re: Distance of tang sight holes

Wouldn't you use a longer bolt for the butt stock as one and just drill & tap for the other?

Re: Henry H001TLB 22 trigger job & sights

Wow! .029 is considered too much? I thought going from the Henry default 3/32" diameter bead to a Marble's 1/16" was a great improvement.

Re: Winchester 1873 LOP

I needed to increase the LOP on my 1873 and I'm only 6' tall but am thin so need longer LOP on my rifles. I put this one on there. Edit: Found it showing as in stock on the Cimarron site. Same product. https://www.cimarron-firearms.com/competition-butt-tamer.html Thanks for the links. Did you add p...

Re: Winchester 1873 LOP

I forgot to ask what the 1873 butt stock dimensions are so I can choose the right slip-on recoil pad. Please advise.

Winchester 1873 LOP

Has anyone felt the need to increase the 13" LOP with the Winchester 1873? I haven't ordered a 73, yet, but I may want a 1" slip-on recoil pad as I'm 6'3" tall and I like the 14" LOP of my Henry FLB.

Re: sight in, ammo testing

shootmore, Accuracy is only part of the equation. You have to be able to knock down the targets with the selected ammo especially the RAMS. Ammo that's super accurate at 100 yards isn't going to take the rams consistently. Although I've seen ammo at 1050/1080 fps take down rams it greatly depends o...

Re: Winchester 73 vs Henry Big Boy maintenance

Do you think a .357 Mag 158 gr. Jacketed Soft Point at 1471 fps will damage a chicken? How about a .357 158 gr. Jacketed Hollow Point at 1220 fps? I see a .357 125 gr. Jacketed Hollow Point will go 1450. Is the lighter bullet easier on the chicken? Is it okay if the chicken is AR500 steel and the ot...

Re: Winchester 73 vs Henry Big Boy maintenance

I suppose I should get a Henry Big Boy in .357 Mag/38 instead of a 1873. I'll have peace of mind with a stronger action as well as money saved with the rifle purchase and cheaper JSP factory loads than what I see available in subsonic LFN cowboy loads.

Re: Winchester 73 vs Henry Big Boy maintenance

...The Henry action will be stronger. The 73 doesn't "lock" the bolt, the linkage cambers over to hold it shut so if you are wanting to feed it "really hot" loads then you may want to consider that. They mention that in the video about bending the six pins with hot loads. Is 158 grain JSP 1471 fps ...

Re: Winchester 73 vs Henry Big Boy maintenance

I think Winchester recommends a new owner of a 73 should do a complete maintenance to remove the factory crud before firing. Is their manual straight forward?

mannyCA has a 2-part YouTube video on "Slicking up a 1873. That's more than what I would try. It probably covers the caveats mentioned.

Winchester 73 vs Henry Big Boy maintenance

Which is easier to clean and maintain, a Winchester 1873 or a Henry Big Boy. In .357 if it makes a difference?
