A couple of years ago I was asked at a writers conference about the rifle Chuck Conners carried as the rifleman. What kind was it?
In the day I had thought it was a Winchester 1894 30-30 like my Dad's. I had since learned it was a Winchester 1892 chambered for .44-40.
How did he get it to fire so fast? There was a set screw set in the lever that would press the trigger as the action was closed. This made the weapon an accident waiting to happen. When the action was opened it was difficult to not fire it. The best bet is to fire out the magazine.
"How did you learn all this stuff" the folks in my weapons program asked?
Come on folks! You never forget your first love.
