Re: Should I buy this Model 1900? Price?

I'd go for it. From what you've told us it should have extractors rather than ejectors. The price is right from what I can see. It is early 1906 production.

Re: Bent hammer

Hammers come up on Ebay from time to time. Seems that hammers and top lever springs are most in demand. As for repairs -- First, looking at one of my '89s, striking the tang seems remote. Striking the back of the bolster seems more likely but I haven't seen yours. Is there any slop in the fit of the...

Re: Remington 12C foregrip screws

Sorry I can't help with your 12C problem but want to ask about your double. What model and grade might it be?

Re: Spare cylinder for original New Model Army available?

I don't know if it would work but since they're out-of-stock it really doesn't matter.

I'd call Dixie and bend their ear and ask what their experience has been. But if they can't help I'd defer to the forum NMA experts to guide you as to what will and won't work for your gun.

Re: Info

Sadly, Mr. Semmer passed on a year or so ago.

We really need pics to see what is being discussed.

Re: I believe I have a 1894 that will not fire consistently

Your '94 was produced in 1898. I would check to see if the main springs are in good shape. Firing problems can usually be traced to weak or broken springs. Another area to check to see if the action is gummed up with old oil and dirt. Fortunately when checking the springs you'll see whether or not t...

Re: Info

Jay - As best I can recall there are only approximately 40 D grade guns known to exist. This is out of a total production of 41,194 of all 1894 grades. Only the E grade and Specials exceed the quality (and quantity) of workmanship. For more information you may wish to consult Charles Semmer's book R...

The overpowder wad will eliminate any loose powder issue in shot shells.

Re: Chamber length on Model 1889 10-gauge ?

I don't know about your experience with BP but the rule of thumb I use is an equal volume of powder to shot. Your '89 should be able to withstand this standard load but take it to a smith if there is any concern. In addition to BP, many of us still load low pressure smokeless loads for our '89s,'94s...

Re: Help with Rolling Block Identification

I know little about RBs but I observe that a Remington Arms Co butt plate is used while the barrel is stamped E. Remington & Sons. Appears that your RB may have been assembled from two or more guns. That might settle the saddle ring question as well.

Re: Clarence Loy

The only reference I have is from Semmers' book Remington Double Shotguns. On pages 177 - 179 there are photos of Joe Loys' work. Other than that I don't recall any other references made to engravers.

Re: Rolling Block Pisstols Model 1871, 1891,& 1901

I'm commenting in an area I don't know much about but anyway --- It's my understanding that the E. Remington & Sons company went broke and was reorganized as the Remington Arms Company in 1888. So that should mean that the Model 1891 and Model 1901 are stamped Remington Arms Co rather than E. Reming...

Re: FE Trap Yr of Mfg

Your FE Trap was produced late in 1906. S/Ns ranged from 133043 to 134627 for all '94s made in '06.
