Re: favorite movie gun blunders

Two;

Ever watch John Wayne reload his Colt? He's so clumsy at it it's pathetic.

In the Movie Rio Bravo when Ward Bond rides unto town then up to the sheriffs office each cut shows a different rifle sticking out of his scabbard. I laugh at it every time I watch the movie.

Re: Is the Henry Original Henry rifle worth the price compared to the uberti henry rifle

To me ..... no. Not by a long shot. There comes a point where a manufacturers price is way out of line for the product. Henry's price went past that point for me.

Re: Winchester 94 30-30

The 94's from the late 70's / early 80's had some issues with misaligned trigger return and lever lock springs. These springs need to be aligned so that they do not rub on the side of the channel of the lower tang. Remove the stock, and look carefully at the springs. If they are misaligned simply re...
