Re: The Win 1873?

RNs feed well, SWC or full Wad cutters, not so much. The action is far less complicated than the 1892. But... in stock form, the 1892 has the shorter lever throw, and even the Rossi with an action job to lighten up its over-sprung springs is a smooth, easy to operate, handy lil' gun. Both operate be...

I just simply need new eyes for shooting any kind of group anymore. All I see is a blurry back sight, a fuzzy front post, and a blob out there past 25 yeards. Lining up the blurry, fuzzy blob give me some semblence of "accuracy", but I'm sure a better eye would bring out the real accuracy.
