    Sorry for the silly title, amigos, it is from an old Revco song. Now that the little people in this household have stopped interrupting me with the noise and paper airplanes, I can perhaps ruminate on the latest project.

    On that point, a NIB, stainless steel, .44 Magnum, Winchester 92-based, 10+1 capacity, lever-gun* is on it's way here. Assuming it works out, it will be a good working companion on this land, but more so on the coming southward work. I'm getting older, so I can already feel the aches, though since I am a wacky guy, I actually look forward to the adventure. But I digress.

    All that aside, my plan is to:

    • Give it a thorough cleaning and lubrication.
    • Coat the wood stock with a good wax.
    • Install sling swivels and put a quality leather sling on said.
    • Have my beloved delicately wrap the lever in paracord, as she has done on other lever-guns in the past.
    • Shoot it a bunch to make sure it runs fine.
    • Maybe have a gunsmith slick it up. Not sure on this one and open to thoughts.
    Thoughts? Over thinking it? Just enjoy? Something else?

    Be that as it may, have a good weekend, my friends.

    I say have fun with it, if guns weren’t fun for my family and I then we’d lose interest. I’d love to see before and after the paracord wrap too!

    That's a good looking little carbine. Should be a handy on your spread. :s0155:

    You like the handy pistol caliber carbines I notice. I do too.

    Just to feed the sickness. Some day you should look at a Ruger Deerfield .44 magnum?
    Not the earlier Ruger .44 carbine of which there are a couple different incarnations. [Internal changes]

    I'm talking about the last one with its rotating bolt. And detachable 4 shot rotary magazine. Think Heavy duty M1 carbine. With a bit more intimidating bore at the end of it's barrel. ;)

    In the future I will continue my bad advice. Please don't tell the wife from where these Ideas arrive.
    Wait. What am I saying? Your wife probably thinks this is a great Idea. :D




    The seed has been planted.

    Will do. Female sidekick has been too busy to do so yet.

    Thanks much. Though I've found this one pretty slick out of the box.

    Indeed, I have been very tempted by the Deerfield 4/5-shooter. And in fact looked over a few before acquiring the lever-gun. And, the wife generally feeds my firearms antics, so no worries there.

    Today I traveled up the hill (I can't bring myself to call it a "mountain", though technically it is) to do a bunch of logging. Whilst heading up, I shot another magazine-tube on the home range. Man, I am digging this new carbine. Though the disturbing thought that the 10 shots would be half my monthly ration of cartridges if the mental patients in Salem get their way.

    You won't be in trouble, if you give me bad advice as well.

    I have an identical but blued in the safe and I've had the same in .357 as well. Slick action if you take a little time to finish the machining.
