Not to mention this...

Check out the EMF 1873 That Turner's has. It's 459.00 I think. Made by Pietta. I really like that one too.

Thanks splithoof. Distance was 50 yards. Load was "American Eagle" .357 158gr JSP. I don't load .357 yet. But, I will as soon as I get enough empties. That won't take long. That Weaver 1-3 scope really helps my shooting as I have trouble after a few rounds with irons or peeps. I now have three lever guns:
Henry .357/.38, Win 94, also scoped[Weaver 4x] and Marlin 39A, no scope.
I'm needing one more. .45 Colt would work. Hmm.

A good sling and butt-cuff for ammunition management is all that I'd install after that, and its field ready. If you carry a .357 revolver, it would be a perfect match especially if you are right-handed. That would be an excellent ranch work combo for sure.

Yes, we'll have to work on that. All I need is JSP 158's and I'm loading. I have everything else. Ahh, Sunday and Dodger baseball later. Nice!

Ohboyohboybohboy! I'm excited. Just got shipping confirmation, my CSBL has been signed for at the first FFL I sent it to. Should be in my grubby little hands in the fairly near future.

Hopefully in time for SSZS, but...probably not.

The best fix out there for the hard to load issue is to get s Ranger Point Precision lightweight loading gate. I have one on my 1895. Night and day difference. Shortening the mag spring is a bad idea. The other way to fix it is to stone the spring on the inside to thin it out.

I need to pick one up for my 1894 38/357. That gate is a beast.
If that works out I'll need 3 more. One for the 1894CB 45LC, and the two 336's in 30-30 / .35Rem.

I'm hoping I get to bring it home before SSZS. If not, it'll be a few weeks after that, but I plan on shooting it a BUNCH, and will do a full review.
