A strong showing from the cap & ball crowd! Cool.

Mine is a stock stainless New Vaquero. I'm looking to put some nicer grips on it. I'm thinking about stag ones. Nice balance of texture and style.

I'd love to see some more leverguns and coachguns. Pistols are always welcome too.

The top gun in my group, the Savage & North, is actually lever action. The ring under the trigger cocks the hammer and rotates the cylinder.

In the pic of the doubles the second from top is an Elsie made in 1909. It has a homemade forearm in that pic. I have since found an original splinter forearm that looks much better. Now if I could just find an original stock reasonably priced(cheap:D).

Lookin' good fellas!

Quick question. Does anyone make a (SASS legal) lever rifle with a more "pistol-style" gripped stock like you see on some Marlin 1895's or stoeger Coach Guns, BUT in .38/.357?

I find the straighter "English" stock awkward by comparision.

Great pics! Keep 'em Comin'

Yeah, it's basically a 1/2 scale repro of the English Coehorn mortar.... one of my books indicates that mortars of this size may have actually been used for launching grenades on the battlefield.

I read that Montana vigilantes used a small howitzer to blast a bandit's cabin in 1864.... so maybe artillery pieces can be counted as "cowboy guns"?

I know, it's a stretch :rolleyes:

The Uberti 1873 Special Sporting Rifle has a pistol-grip stock. Nice guns, but not cheap, especially after you finish getting them slicked up for CAS competition.

That is the style grip I want but like double the price. Over $1100.00 is bit steep for me.

The Uberti 1873 Special Sporting Rifle has a pistol-grip stock.

It's more of a semi pistol grip. The top of the grip is flat and only a little curve on the bottom. The lever is even straight.

dlon21, that is quite a collection of originals. Colts Dragoon, Army, a few Remingtons...is that a Rogers & Spencer? Any more you didn't show?
Do you shoot them or just admire them?
That's quite a shotgun. Is it a "coach gun"?

dlon21
May 21, 2010, 10:06 AM
Sure, I shoot them occasionally. Especially the 1858 that's not as pristine as the other one. I think the 1858 type is my favorite. I also have a little Remington Police, that's all the revolvers I have, if I haven't forgotten one. The Dragoon, I've tried out two times. Hits right on target , with the 30 gr charger on my powder flask. A little on the heavy side though.

The Rogers&Spencer seems nice, but only tried it once. Don't like it as much because it's a lot of work taking it apart I think.

The shotgun is a cut-down coach gun, yes. Barrels are 20 inches, in about 12gauge, and it has very nice engraving on it with a lot of the gold wash left. Also have a 10 ga. with full length barrels that seems to pack some punch :D

And lastly I have a rebuilt springfield 1861, or 1860-something, .58 cal minie rifle. Haven't shot that very much though. Used to have a 4-inch Colt police, but traded it away. Also looking for a Sharps, but money is my limit here in life :barf:

On the rare occasion that I'm not shooting C&B psitols in a SASS match, I sometimes shoot these - pair of Uberti Cattlemen in 44-40.
http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c86/fingersmcgee/100_1403.jpg

Shotgun could be a TTN, Liberty II or this original 1889 Remington with 20" and 30" barrels.

And last but not the least, here are a couple of my CAS rifles. '66 Carbine, '73 short rifle and Lightning all in 44-40. H&R Officers model Springfield in 45-70.

And a pair of turn-of-the-century 1897s that my great granddad traded for some plumbing work. If you're smarter than me, you can see that the bottom gun in the second picture has a new(er) slide. "Baba" was pretty good at making Frankenguns!

They will give you a Superman's thumb as they carry a heavy mainspring...I like um heavy and besides I don't have the heart to change these SBs any.
Jus' cause they shoot just as good as the looks ;)
I like my Colts with a lighter mainspring jus' cause they seem to work better that way ... and I shoot um straighter. I dunno I'm just a Rem man that has alot a Colts(and likes um too):D
I think if I had a 1/4 the Colt collection that Fingers has I'd be a Colt man that deep down was a Rem man. :)
