Had mine about 14 years now. Have replaced the cylinder pin and the bolt i think its called. Both parts bought from Henry Kranks and where in stock.
As you say the trigger is really nice on the Rogers and i like the slightly bigger grips. Over the years the gun has taken on a lovely used look and still
functions as new although i don't use it much these days.
Iv never seen an original either, seen a few original Remingtons but i suppose they will be out there somewhere. Tim
