I have a very nice 45-70 I want to trade. Very good condition with standard grade wood Excellent shooter with which I shot my highest long range score to date.

50-90 chamber dimensions

Does anyone have a copy of the chamber dimensions for the Winchester 50-90 BPCR ?
MY book From Wayne must be earlier as it isn't included.
thanks

Re: misfires

This was a later Winchester 45-90 with 30" barrel. I believe it was unfired when I bought it and not sure I ever did fire it before modifying it.

Re: misfires

OK thanks
Just shot the gun today and its a pain to try to remember to move the ejector before putting another shell in.

Get a hold of a guy called Texas Mac. He literally wrote the book on those rifles. He haunts here and the ASSRA form.

Re: misfires

Thanks Wayne. I'll add that section to my book. I do have one of Lee's springs, but this trigger hasn't been worked so I might send it in to him and get everything done while I have it apart. On another note, I have another Browning that I had rebarrelled to 45 2 7/8. When It came back it has had a ...

If the rifle misfires randomly, but is leaving a light dent in the primer would that be a bent or weak sear spring or more of an indication of a sticking firing pin. seems like if...

Re: What is wrong here?

You want to get some threads going, try pushing a few buttons. Discussions where everyone agrees don't last long. Unless of course your waiting for a 77 Shiloh.

Re: What is wrong here?

I do not like facebook discussions personally, but they are obviously favored by some. They are certainly easier to lose track of, hard to decipher, and not easily searched or recovered (at least not for me). Facebook is like a faucet that is constantly spewing stuff, about 10% of which actually in...
