    ^^^^^^^ Try pulling the bullet from a Long Rifle and see if the case will fit the chamber.

    As promised, a few shots (pardon the pun) of my goodtime gals. I've lost a screw from the Winchester pump foregrip, cant get one over here. Does anyone know where I can get one that will export a screw to the U.K. Once again, thanks to all for the info and friendliness. Regards to all.

    Thanks BillM, Long Rifle wont fit at all. Cant get .22 Long anywhere local to me and U.K. gun laws wont allow for ammunition to be posted to a private address. Dealers add massive amounts of costs because of the security required. Has to transported practically in an armoured van. The good news is the Lightning cycles .22 Short smoothly. Got the last 400 rounds anywhere locally. Thanks for the interest.

    Those are two beautiful little guns! I have a 1890 in blue but i think someone restored it long before i got it.

    I think the goodtime gals are blushing a little at the compiments. Once I get too old to shoot (say in about one hundred years) I must find a way to get these lovely pieces of Americana back where they'll be appreciated. I'd imagine someone over there would give them a loving home. Take care all, and if you can think where I can get the screw from it will be greatly appreciated.

    $195.00 for that Colt qualities as theft! You got a screaming deal. Congratulations!

    Hi All, Just a quick update on the Lightning. Took [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] advice and sure enough the .22 LR case slipped into the breach nicely. It took a while to find anyone stocking .22 Long, but eventually got my hands on a couple of hundred that cost a little over $33. It was also a sixty miles round trip. At the range they fed beautifully. So, all in all, still happy with the purchase. Got the screws for the 1890 Winchester from Homestead Parts. If anyone needs bits, try there, very accommodating folks. Thanks again for the help.
