Re: How to de-cock a Winchester 1907?

I don't plan on shooting it again so should I store it with the hammer back or dry fire it only once? I wouldn't want to leave a snap cap in it permanently.

Re: How to de-cock a Winchester 1907?

I just want to de-cock it for storage. I guss dry firing it once shouldn't hurt it. I just remember reading never dry fire a rem. Model 8. Didn't know about the win. 1907.

Yes I am going to reload, but brass and bullets are just as hard to find as loaded ammo, at least for now.

Model 81 woodsmaster with factory scope mount holes?

Was at a gun show and a person had a model 81 that he said had factory mount screw holes for a scope and that you could order them that way. He said gun was made in 1937. Was wondering if this is gun show bull or it's true.

Is 35 remington ammo always so hard to find?

I have a new to me 81 and every place on the net is out of stock. Will they have some after hunting season?
