Re: misfires

Well my bad, I call all the BPCR models Brownings. It was the latest version Miroku 1885 BPCR 30" barrel 45-90 with Winchester stamped on it.

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.

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 ...

misfires

Hard to believe no one has posted on the Browning thread for 2 years !! Thought I'd see what you Browning experts think. 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...

Re: WTT shiloh sporter #1

(and 40-65 for that matter) are too generic. Strange that !!!! Altho the I have no real interest in the 45-70, the 40-65 has always been one of my favorites. Probably because it was my first BPCR caliber and the first one I won matches with. and still amazes me when I pull it back out and throw a n...
