Re: possible new service pistol...

Man, thats cool 30-30. My brain is still back in th single action revolver days.....other than 1911's and a few vintage Colts I have little to no experience with these new fangled semi autos.

Re: Finding a 1873 SRC in 38-40

Finding any '73 SRC in any caliber with that kind of condition is a tough one....and the ones you do find seems like the owners know what they have. Nice snag Shrapnel....must be a mid to north eastern gun.-
