love the gun and fun to shoot but kind of rough on the shoulder after sending several rounds down range.
One time my diminutive wife wanted to shoot my 1895 - so I loaded up some 60 grain blackpowder rounds with 350 grain bullets.
She enjoyed shooting it, and later on I spent a pleasant hour taking the gun apart to clean it.
Now days I would use TrailBoss to do the same thing.
