    A C prefix will be a 12ga and all 12ga 1897's had 2 3/4" chambers.
    The 16ga was introduced with the E series in TD only, they had 2 9/16" chambers until the mid-late 20's, IIRC.

    Unless its marked 357 only it should feed 38 spl with no problems. It was the older pistol caliber lever guns that relied on a certain c.o.a.l. to feed properly. The carrier functioned as the...

    Appearantly it does better with heavy bullets in 308. Seems I remember reading a magazine article 14-15 years ago that stated Alliant had won the contract to furnish powder for loading 7.62mm M118LR...

    Yes it precludes the use of en blocks in the prescribed manner but that's the trade off in mounting optics on a rifle that was never intended to be optically sighted.

    I reckon exterior ballistics play a bigger part in the accuracy of the 30 carbine beyond 150yds than gun and/or shooter. That transsonic range can play the devil on a bullets flight. The 30 C goes...

    That's probably because the original spring was weak to begin with, or gummed up. OEM spec springs are plenty strong enough to ignite the hardest of primers. Just break down the striker assembly and...
