    Been on my grail list for a long time. I am NOT disappointed. If it's a clean specimen you should snap it up for certain.
    Oh, I'm very familiar with the SJC Titan. My wife has had one on her SIG 556 rifle for many years. We call it the Loudener because it's loud as fuck. When she used to run it in multi-gun competitions, the RO would have to stand back a bit more than normal because the sound was deafening. When we go to the range, I usually stand behind her in the parking lot while she's shooting, lol. It's a fantastic break, otherwise.

    I was real tempted earlier this month to buy the 1903. But then SHOT Show happened and now there's a bunch of other guns I want, lol.

They did make an 1894 in 32 H&R Magnum, and people have rechambered those in 327 but the 32 H&R Marlins are much too pricey due to collector interest.

    I had to work on my Henry 327 because it was not smooth feeding; the extractor was ground to a sharp point and did not catch on the case rim in a positive manner. I sent it back to Henry and although they were very nice about it and very fast with the turnaround, it still had the same problems. Easy to be fast if you don't do anything . . . not saying they did that.

    I got a couple replacement extractors and modified one suitably to provide 100% extraction. Chamfering and polishing the chamber mouth and feed ramp took care of feeding.

    Anyhow, YM will probably V, because mine was an early gun and I know a shooter with a fairly recent 327 gold Henry and it's a solid performer. I can't abide the gold ones, but they fit your pimptastic requirements.

    Seems to be an issue with Henry Big Boy rifles, in general. My .357 BB had extraction issues. I tried to use it for SASS and cases would just sort of fall out of the chamber when they were ejected. Being left handed, if I had the gun tilted to the left in any way, the case would fall back into the gun causing a jam. If you watch YouTube videos of someone shooting a Big Boy, you can see the cases don't come out with much gusto as compared to a Marlin.

    The extractor broke on my first BB. Henry sent me a new one and I installed it. I took it out to another match and that extractor broke. Henry had me send them the rifle in for service. They had it for a month (this was just after their NJ factory flooded). Finally they sent me a whole new rifle. It's still in the box and hasn't been shot. While I was waiting to get my BB back I bought a Rossi 92, and after some minor smithin', it works great. I like the BB, I just don't think it's up for competition use. Not that they ever claimed it to be.

    [QUOTE=Zet70;4569141]Grandpa's old 1903 from 1926. Mom just gave it to me for my 35th birthday. Ordered a new recoil spring, mag, and shoulder holster to carry real classy style.

    Beautiful!! Keep it in the family. Hand it down some day.
