    Best brass hull length for 10 ga 1887 lever shotgun

    The action is perhaps a little more robust, but the dimensions are the same if my own comparisons are correct. I have compared my 1901 to several '87s and they match up when one is laid over the other.
  5. Typical judicial "legislation"!! A total overreach by an obviously liberal "activist" judge!!

    Best brass hull length for 10 ga 1887 lever shotgun

    I'm using 2 7/8" in my Winchester 1901, which is basically the same gun.

    Largest East Coast SASS gathering

    The Black Gold Shootout in Manchester, KY had over 200 shooters this summer!! It is by no means the biggest shoot in the Eastern Time Zone, but it is CERTAINLY the most shooter friendly and probably the most entertaining! It has been described as "The family reunion that you go to because you like the whole family!" or words to that effect. If you leave there sad, sober, or hungry, it's because you wanted to! Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee state matches have all averaged around 200 shooters for several years now, and each has its own feel, but each has that big hospitality thing in common. We want you to come, have fun, and come back again!! Land Run and CAC are big matches where you and everyone else are treated like VIPs because that's what you are!! The most important folks at a match are the ones who pay the entry fee and travel whatever distance it takes to participate!! I can honestly say that that is how we've been treated at every one of the matches mentioned here!! I know that the Southeast Regional is the same way!! I've shot and vended and entertained with those folks as well!!

    Saw a Marlin 98 the other day

    I would first question it being an actual “98”. Those are REALLY rare. The $160.00 price is way low if it is a first issue model, if it is still all there. The shortened barrel reduces its value considerably. There are a number of versions of the Marlin exposed hammer pump shotgun that were produced in subsequent issues, all of which are covered by Marlin’s blanket disclaimer. I’d be interested in a true Marlin model 1898 hammer gun! The model 42 is the ultimate Marlin hammer pump shotgun!! It can be loaded with the action open and the one I have is very smooth and quite well built and appointed!!
