Ordered my new rifle yesterday
Well guys I am really stoked!!

Glass gave me the ok to order my rifle for Cowboy Action Shooting and I immediately went to my FFL before she changed her mind and ordered a Chaparral Arms 24” octagonal barrel, case hardened receiver 1873 lever action in 357. It should be here in a week or two and I must keep reminding myself to be patient. My shotgun should be back from the gunsmith in the next few weeks and all I have to do is be patient for Glass to finish my rig and I’ll be ready to go full bore to some serious matches. As I said…. I am really stoked!!.

I know the feeling of waiting to receive the prize you have ordered. Sounds like a beauty. I will pull up their website and take a look at the rifle. "just to drool!!!"
Good Luck on your cow boy competition. Looks like it would be a blast but I already have too many hunting and shooting vices!!!!!

Nice...Christmas comes early to the Scubie household. So be honest now, what did that rifle really cost you? What will Glass be posting about in HER thread? :D

I sent my 1887 lever action shotgun to a gunsmith who specializes in CAS work and am having a action job with Damascus polishing and a special CAS plug that limits the gun to two shots but can be removed if you want to use the magazine later. He is also modifying the ejector to eject the last round after shooting. The standard 1887 will not eject the last fired round because it utilizes the next round to kick the fired round out. When I get her back she will be a “number 1, high speed, low drag, screaming” speed demon competition gun.
