I think that the .45 LC is one of the most under-rated cartridges when you start looking at stout loads and a lever gun that can handle them. That's a fine looking blaster!
Cody Connagher (sp?) will work them. He's the one that does the Uberti Commanchero, too.PAc, that's a pretty as a box of bird dog puppies! Well Done! :congrats:
I've had a Browning/Miroku "Winchester 92" in .44 mag. What a peach! Is there a technique or gunsmith that "short-strokes" that '73 for the SASS crowd? :image035:
You having both, I'm positive you'll find the Miroku of much better overall quality too.I had been looking hard at adding another Uberti, but the 16" Trapper models are scarce and those that have them on GB apparently aren't in any hurry to sell them.
Yeah, I'll have to play around with it and see where I can realistically lob them in from :rofl:With that rear sight, you could shoot some indirect fire!
Hey, Bryan, I'll have to pull my snake through it a few times now to clean it.Big heavy lead making big fat holes.
I agree that guns seem to break in through shooting use best. Handling and dry-firing while watching TV just isn't the same.
I'm not sure how it relates to this model, but I've heard that was the concept behind such sights on military rifles of the later 19th century. The idea wasn't to hit a target at 500 yards, but for a formation to put massed fire on an enemy formation at that range. I could see that being quite effective, at least with something like .45-70 - not so sure about .45 LC.With that rear sight, you could shoot some indirect fire!
Did a back-of-the-iPhone calculation - I figure .45 Colt from a pistol could still be going at over 500 fps at 500 yards? So from a carbine, probably much faster. Certainly enough to make it worth lobbing at the bad guys!Volley fire with the .45 Colt, even from 500 yards, would be most unpleasant if one was standing in a bullet's path.
At 500 yards, the .45 Colt isn't "aimed-fire", it's...artillery! :biggrin2:Volley fire with the .45 Colt, even from 500 yards, would be most unpleasant if one was standing in a bullet's path.
