I'm in need of one of these in 32-20. And a 73 in .357. Both short-stroked.

I want mine short stroked as well as a 73. My 66 is butter smooth. I cannot imagine it with an action job and short stroke kit.

IIRC the new Winchester 73s come short-stroked from the factory, since most of them are used by SASS shooters. I'd like to see which one is faster, the short-stroked 73 or my Colt Lightning clone.

I'm several hundred miles away from home, so I can't take a picture of it. Besides, this this a lever action thread, not a pump action thread

Not sure. I spoke to a man named Johnny Meadows that does a lot of cowboy action work last week. He let me know that the short stroke kits that fit Ubertis no longer fit the new production 66 rifles. We did not speak about the 73 models but I will find out. If they are short stroked that would certainly save a lot of cash.

So why did you mention a pump action?????

But you can post it when you get home. I've never heard of a "clone" of a lightening and lightenings be 'spensive.

I was talking about drag racing with carbines I have a Taurus Thunderbolt, one of the few they made that runs. The first production guns were not very reliable. By the time they got things right, no one wanted to buy one.

And Taylors has these http://www.taylorsfirearms.com/long-...by-uberti.html

His and hers Uberti 73's in .45LC. She's a much better shot than I am.
