    Doing anything other than cleaning that Winchester up would really be a crime.They don't make
    them any more and it's not in bad shape.Duracoat is for new guns.

    That is completely wrong.You can not make guns with the intention of selling them as a
    business.Any legal gun you make can be sold or traded to upgrade or liquidate your collection,
    and can be legally...

    The grip angle is tried and tested since the 1920s on guns of this type.Guns with sawed off
    factory stocks rise when fired and have a nasty habit of getting the web of your hand stuck
    under the openin...

    It's a monster! Shooting 2-3/4" shells is actually a little painful. After about 10 rounds, it
    was time for me to stop.Recoil is straight back into the hand due to the grip design. The grip
    is designe...

    I'm teasing no one. As I stated above, very few gun parts break-and those that do can usually
    be made or replaced by competent gunsmiths.I see no reason to avoid buying a good gun because
    it is out of...

    I can't believe people believe parts are never going to break.Having worked on guns for 45
    years, I have a pretty good handle on what breaks and what doesn't.

    Unless the gun is one of the Charco versions, quality is not questionable.Charters are darned
    good little guns for the money. I have S&Ws and Colts, but I have 2 Charters doing home defense
    duty.Getti...

    I like Star pistols, but I got rid of my last one because the sparsity of spare parts.The only
    parts you are likely to ever need are magazines and firing pins.Magazines are available and I
    make firing...

    Keep on experimenting. Be safe. Examine all the firearms you can. READ as much as you can.
    Understand that-while 3D printing may be the wave of the future, at this point in time it is
    not adequate for...
