Removed Butt-Plate Springs

  1. 200 rounds of 45-70. Screw my shoulder. A $1.30+ per round, that's hell on the wallet!

    I use my sights at all times. I'm not a fan of point-and-shoot. I have too many guns I train with, and point-and-shoot requires muscle memory for a specific firearm.

    Indeed. It's a lot easier to adopt something new, one technique at a time.

    same here, much better.
     
  6. I use the sights, when I can see them. This is my bump-in-the-night gun. The sights are black and not that useful, even with a bright light mounted under the barrel. So, the laser is also activated with the pad. I also know where the rounds hit in relation to the white light's beam area on objects.

    Yep, he's a good bit taller than Bull and I... Bull is about my height. First time he held my former G20, his eyes lit up like he's found his true love :love:
    :lol:

    General consensus was couple of years ago that the original stock was flexibel (or sloppy) enough that it wasn’t needed.

    Never paid a buck-thirty plus a round to shoot my 45-70.

    Didn't I hear somebody say one time or another that you could not save money by reloading?

  10. Yes. And I've never done it. It's not really a plinky-plink at the range type gun. If I eventually get a Henry lever, I may need to get a Lee hand reloading kit.

    I can do that with a 3' step stool. I'm only 6'2" so I am SUPER jealous!

    I'm only 6'2", also, but I have 8' ceilings. If I get on a step stool, I can easily palm the ceiling.

    I've found most guys lie about their height like women and their age. They will tell me they are 6'2 and be shorter than me. I'm 6'0 but I can also read a tape measure

    I'm actually taking a half inch off of what the Army always measured at weigh-ins after PT tests.

    What! .......Not a pinker! ....Blasphemy!

    The 45-70 is one of my favorite pinker! Especially the Buff Classic and 1873 Springfield. More fun than a .22!
     
  17. Nope
     
  18. Took the carbine out today. No issues of any kind. We'll see if longevity is an issue.
