I'm looking for #37 and #13 in this diagram:

I had ordered #13 from them, but it seems to be almost 1/8" longer than the one from the pistol.

Is there any hope to ever get this back together?

Thanks guys!
I don't know if Brownell's will have something, but they have lots of parts. You could probably call them for info.

Where are your hunting photos Scott, like the pea field, the deer and the processing???

Are you planning to use your 7 this year?

You might give this place a try. http://www.jackfirstgun.com/ The cylinder hand #13 being longer may be that it's that way for fitting. Does the rest of the part look the same besides just being longer? That part has allot to do with the timing of the cylinder rotating.

How's everyone tote their rifle/shotgun? Every rack I come up with leaves the gun poking out the roof or in the way.

I been wondering that since last year! Lol
I laid the stock in back seat with the barrel resting on center console last year. Thought about maybe using an atv "Y" type carrier and mount them on the rear fender wells but not sure if I wanna drill thru the fender wells yet.

I should have placed my pics here! Sorry about that. I get selfish trying to keep my thread going!!

I will defnitely use the 7 when I am on the long plot, or maybe the .243 or -06. Most of the time I will be using my .30-.30. It's just a fun gun to use, and most of my shooting is done shorter range.

Missed two opps for pigs during archery this season... too slow, even though I was at full-draw on one of them. I haven't seen anything shootable for about a week and a half now. Only thing I got FOR SURE is another dose of chiggers, which is convincing me to stay out of the woods until it gets cold. I have never expereinced chiggers this bad!

Planting the plots with our primary crop this coming w/e.

I always place my long gun barrel down to the floor, leaning against the pass seat. Rides well as log as you're not slamming on the brakes.

I think there will be a lot of bloodshot meat if you run over them with your 7, maybe stick to the 243 or '06

Great thread! When we go hunting, we get to play with a whole bunch of our toys at once!

I am lucky enough to guide hunts in the golden triangle of south Texas, in La Salle county. It is not unusual to see bucks down there in the 180 BC range. We also have more than our share of ferral hogs and javelina. I wont let a yote pass by unless we are on a nice buck.

I carry a custom .270 win. It is built on a rem action. There is a custom barrel maker here in Ennis, Tx, I have become addicted to his work. His name is Shillen. I have started shooting 150 grain accubond bullets in it and I am just amazed at the way they bring down a 200+ pound south Texas buck.

Last year I built a .300 win mag on a rem700 action and Shillen barrel. I have not hunted with it yet, still breaking in the barrel and working on different loads. I think I am really going to like the .300, it doesnt kick nearly as bad as I thought it would.

Lots of times I will carry my Ruger 10-22 mag to the stand when I am with clients, just in case we get a shot at a bobcat or a yote. I am shooting some ballistic tip bullets in it. They dont leave nearly as big of "window" on the exit side as the big bores do. It makes for a much nicer mount or skin. That 10-22 mag may be my favorite gun to just go shootin with. Doesnt cost a fortune every time I squeeze the trigger.

I have other long guns and shot guns as well as a host of hand guns, [Walther PPK/S, Colt 1911, Colt buntline special, Ruger single six, Ruger police service six, couple of Glocks,].

Again, geat thread! JH

Comparing the two 7s, I think I'd rather get hit by the Jeep!! I know there'd be a LOT more time to get out of the way!!!!

Great thread!
Living in Arizona, we have Coues white tail deer. They live in some of the darnest, roughest country I have ever seen. We use the CJ5 to get there, Swarovski 15X56's to find them and the .257 Weatherby Magnum to close the deal. I handload 100grain Nosler Ballistic Tips over 66 grains of Reloader 22 ignited by a federal 215M primer. Muzzle velocity is 3453 FPS, 250 yard zero, out at 500 yards the velocity is 2438 FPS and the projectile has dropped only 24" from point of aim. I really like quarter bores. Also own a Savage 110 in 25.06 and it is a great round. But the Weatherby is way cool. Can't wait till late November for my season to begin. God bless.

Killed this buck with my bow 2 days ago. Spot and stalk, 40 yard shot, 20 yard recovery. Used my Jeep to haul him out.

Not a monster, but he'll eat real good.
