Yes, I've got the exact same rifle, and even with set triggers like yours. Also have another .40-60M 1881 in special deluxe built by Emil Flues.

Re: Big Marlin 1881

Thanks Six I’ll PM ya. Did you get a 406 to shoot in your rifle without leading. I think I have a lee factory crimp for my 38wcf so will have to find it. I had chambering problems after about ten shots when residue built up in the chamber neck. It sounds like my rifle and yours are identical.

WTB in KS / Win 64 sight hood.

Winchester Model 64 front sight hood. Standard rifle with 24” bbl. The groove is .320-.325 wide and the hood from my pre 64 30/30 carbine does not fit right.

Yes it’s the 40-60 Marlin standard rifle with set triggers. Had to ream the hell out of the case necks to get a 408 bullet to chamber and if I thought a 406 would shoot ok with smokeless I would go with that.

Finally got it out yesterday with no big drama and put three shots about an inch left at 30 meters. Bumped the rear sight a tad right and it’s done for now. 265 gr RNFP GC over 22gr Acc 5744.
