    Here's a new adddition...

    Hardly vintage but from a very old firm who manufacture it in the U.S.



    Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal, Model FNS 9mm. As you can see it is totally ambidextrous (OK apart from the take-down latch) so if you need to share with a wrong handed spousal unit....as I do...



    it's good to go.

    Hey everyone!! I'm still around. Computer finally gave up the ghost and I've not been in a hurry to get another. But I did get an iPhone for Christmas!

    Newest additions to the collection;
    Colt 1917 D/A revolver.
    Minty Springfield 1903A1 with a High Standard barrel 1944
    Colt "Army Special" (mfg 1922) Rev. 32WCF
    Cimmaron 1873 short rifle in 45 Colt ctg

    Been a hectic past six months. After 21 years of congestive heart failureWifey's heart finally plays out in August. Sept 5th she got an "LVAD" installed. Heart pump. So things are a bit different these days. Still smithing at least three days a week.

    I hope your wife gets better! Would love to see the Cimmaron 1873. Been reading all kinds of good things about the .45 LC. Always wondered what one could do loaded up with modern smokeless, very powerful. Probably to much for your 73, but still a great round. Do you have the matching Peacemaker?

    You're limited to about 20,000 psi CUP on a modern '73 replica - which is about twice the old black powder loads, but nowhere near what's possible with modern powders.
    I load .357 to about 1400 fps with 4227 and safe chamber pressures for my Chaparral 1873 replica. If I had it to do over again, though I would buy the Uberti.

    Word is out that Miroku will be producing limited edition 1873s under the Winchester Brand - only in .357 (which is a virtual ballistic twin of .38-40). These are not replicas, but are 1873s with modern metallurgy. They are also reported to be competitively priced with Uberti.

    As soon as I can post pics again I will. Sure has heck dunno how to post 'em from this thing!! The 1873 was a fluke! Guy had it wrapped up in a piece of plastic in his gun safe. Had light surface rust on it for condensation. Nothing serious. Practically got it for a song!!!! Unfired! Still had the warning tag on lever!!

    On another note. Wifey was able to bust a monster wild hog right off the back porch of the place here back in November. Less than 2 months after her surgery! She used her old Winchester model 88 in 308 win.
