Not sure how many here have a fondness for old lever guns, but I find them fascinating and thought I'd share. I happened to be on a business trip in St Louis, and one night wandered into the Cabela's Gun Room to ogle old rifles I could not afford. Alas - to the the dismay of my wallet (and my wife!) I saw a reasonably priced 1892 rifle (not carbine) chambered in 38-40 that piqued my interest. I asked to handle it, I asked questions, and one thing led to another. The price was very negotiable, and the serial put it as made in 1895...... so it was an official antique and therefore cash and carry. So, I've been playing with it a bit, and worked up some reloads. Take a look at what I did yesterday, shooting off-hand at 50 yards. 20 rounds into an 8" target center, and most all X's, 10's and 9's, with only one 8. I like this gun.
