Just added a model 27 in 32-20 to the herd. Pre Safety about midway through the production, #37xx. Waiting on firing pin and mainspring. The latter, mainspring appears to have been homemade, nothing wrong with that if you do the job correctly. It's twice the thickness of the original which requires at least twice the force to overcome and most likely caused the fore stock to crack and firing pin to break. Better pics later when the parts arrive. IMG_20180601_071933.jpg IMG_20180601_071829.jpg IMG_20180601_071848.jpg

Sweet! If I ever find one of those for sale I'm sure I'll have to buy it!!
Big Al1 there still out there. The fact that they're still around and serviceable is a testament to the quality and craftsmanship. This particular one although it appears to have been used frequently still has a bright bore and very strong rifling. I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs.
