View Full Version : Can you help a rookie?

I just obtained a Winchester model 1905 35 cal repeater. What cartridge fits this gun? 35 cal Remington sure doesn't. Like I said, I'm a rookie, so I'd appreciate it if you all took it a bit easy on my ignorance.

Takes .35 Win cartridge. Obsolete and a bit wimpy. I think you have a mantle hanger instead of a shooter but Old Western Scrounger may be able to come up with ammo.

Same gun was also chanbered for .32 Win. Same deal with the cartridge.

Model 1905s were made from 1905-1920.

If you find ammo, please have a gunsmith check out before you pull the trigger. Failing that, mantle gun.

Thank you both. Yes Old Western Scrounger has what I need, I believe. I bought the gun at a flea market. Didn't know anything about it. Just that it was in fine shape. When I shouldered it, I knew I wanted it. Well I'll just have to handload if I want to shoot it. I guess there's no time to learn like now. Thanks again.
