    I'm now thoroughly convinced that some older firearms find ways to get to people who truly appreciate them.
    PT1911 - 45ACP, Pietta 1873 SAA - 45LC, PT709SS slim, Heritage RR 6.5" 22LR/Mag dual cylinders
    1939 Tula 91/30 Nugget, Evil Copper and Black Rifle, Savage B-Mag in 17WSM
    Mossberg 535 12ga

    And every time I take it out of the safe this song starts to play...

    Took off the side plate to check for crud/dryness/condition. The previous owner never had the side plate off. I was a bit apprehensive as I had heard previously that some Miroku models have a spring that likes to come out when doing so. I stopped by a gunsmith the other day and he didn't seem interested. Oh well! I cleared off the workbench, put the gun in a plastic bag and began backing out the two screws. Thank goodness there was no spring waiting for me! Put a few drops of Weapon Shield in several spots and closed her back up. Everything functions normally as before.

    What marvelous little machines guns are. So many are so simple, yet so deadly. You have a fine weapon and a piece of history there. Congrats!
