Re: Finding a 1873 SRC in 38-40

Nice! Wow.
I have a 73 SRC in .38 but it has WAY less finish than your beauty. It does, however, have a super bore and action.
The .38 was way more popular than .44 in my neck of the woods..........thankfully.

Re: Rem. 81- 35 range report

The 8's and 81's were fairly popular up here, but always in .35, which is held in high regard in these parts.
See a lot of 336's in that chambering too, along with Remington 141's.
