I bought my 3 1895s on Gunbroker. Some good deals to be had there if you take your time.

My SRC came from Cabelas (forgot which store). Seems I have a little over 1K in it. Their pricing is all over the map, but decent guns at good prices do show up. They run 10% off sales once in awhile (5% right now) plus I buy up Cabelas gift cards off ebay for an additional 20% off.

Circumstances differ - my 1895.405 Deluxe was purchased from a Winchester collector as an investment and for artistic appeal with approval of wife as every gun she has said "go buy it" has appreciated well and been a good investment. It is sooo pretty! :):):)

That gave me tacit approval to shop for a "shooter" and I found one at a very good price which looked NIB, but had already been fitted with a good recoil pad and Williams receiver sight AND sighted in! Included a couple boxes of 300 grain ammo too.
My shooter has taken a variety of game from feral hogs to big stuff like water buff and Cape Buff. As you know , it shoots bullets from 210 grains to 400 grains equally well.

I like the .405 WCF cartridge so well, that I abandoned plans for a .45- 90 double rifle, and bought this custom made .405 Double Rifle.

I have a 3003 takedown. Been using 3006 cases. Is there any benefit to resizing 270 cases to match the proper brass length. The rifle shoots fine as is?

Back in the '90s one in 303 came to live at my house. It was followed by a 30 US and a 30-06 takedown. The last one purchased was another 30 US by Miroku. All of them still live in the safe. One of the few rifles I really regret buying was an all there not awful condition Russian contract musket. It's the only one I've ever seen.

I am really enjoying my USRAC Color Case Take down in 30/06. It is becoming my favorite. This may border on heresy but as my eyes age I am thinking of a reflex style site. I ordered the Turnbull receiver mount for my 1949 Model 64 and asked about one for the 1895. The woman on the phone ( Stephanie) said I was the third call in a week asking for one. She stated that if there was enough interest that they would have some made. Please call Turnbull if you are interested. I have Williams receiver sights on all of my levers but am starting to see fuzz around the apertures.
Thanks

Used to own a 405 takedown which was used on a bison hunt. After moving decided to sell it. Ended up missing the rifle so placed a WTB ad and found a NIB takedown 30-06 made by Miroku, This will be one rifle in my collection that will stay there until I die. Plan is to install a Williams peep sight and give it a regular walk during our long deer seasons.
Now I find myself searching to replace the 405 as well.

Did Winchester ever commission the jap model 270 in a take down version?

Snowwolf,
Would you be interested in an unfired Miroku M95 Deluxe in .405 WCF?

Thank you
