Fantastic find Steve!!

Hey that's a good looking piece, Doug! I have a Spanish knock off of this gun that needs a new paw, made about 1919. Hopefully someday I can get her shooting. What kinda leather do ya keep it in?

Awesome! I have a Model 3 "Target" in 38-44...A strange cartridge thatvtook a lot of work to reload for it. I wrote an article about it for a Black Powder magazine. You can read about it on my web site www.rvbprecision.com.

I love shooting it.

Hey thanks for sharing your article!

Dad has a thing for the .38-40 round. He doesn't own one, but I think a rifle or pistol either one in that caliber is one of his "Grail guns"

I had a dream once....very significant. What I would call a "God dream" because I never forgot it.

Simply put, I was standing looking at a vertical wooden gun rack. In the rack was a single antique lever action rifle. Tied onto the lever was one of those white "price tags" with strings that had written on it, "Doug Bennett"...obviously for me. I instantly knew the following about the gun. It was a break down model. It had been fully nickle plated at one time but most of the plating was worn off. It was a 32-20.

Now I didn't know anything about 32-20 or did I ever want one, but I have since then been convinced there was a message in it for me.........always of course keeping my eyes open for it at gun shows and shops......I have assumed it was a Model '92 Winchester but not certain.

Interesting the various old cartridges! :D
