  1. Put Insanity and I on the list. Great place for a CC dinner! Thanks for organizing this Major... Asa Smith
  2. Hate to sound like the fool but.... What is a "Plainsman" match? Trapdoors and such make it sound interesting... Asa
  3. I second the nomination for: High Plains Hud A true cowboy from the day I met him, many years ago. Always dresses the part of a Classic, shots the big guns with style and makes it look easy! He was/is a tireless worker at our club. Ran/wrote WB matches, including the annual event for years. My sons and I have many the fond memory working, building and shooting with him. Still helping make our club better and stronger. Proud to call him friend. (He was fast even back in the day when shooting full loads with unmodified guns were the rule. I'm sure this will start the conversations!) Dantankerous is another great choice, always behaves like a true classic, (at least when I'm watching) My humble opinion Asa Smith
  4. From the Uberti Website: The Uberti Cattleman II with retractable firing pin is a breakthrough for those seeking enhanced safety with regard to original Old West revolvers without sacrificing the visual authenticity of a 1st-generation Colt. As any cowboy knows, the safest way to carry a single-action is with the hammer resting on an unloaded chamber. This is true even for the Uberti retractable firing pin design. But in the case of the Uberti design, the risk of accidental discharge is reduced: the firing pin is not locked into the firing position unless the trigger is pulled. This enhanced safety feature is available without a visible transfer bar safety, which those who insist on visual authenticity might not want. In other words, from the outside this revolver’s looks and operation are identical to those of an original. 1. While at rest, the firing pin floats free in its guide, exerting no pressure towards the chamber. 2. With the hammer at full cock, the sear shifts into position to engage the firing pin once the trigger is pulled. 3. When the trigger is pulled from a fully-cocked position, the sear engages the firing pin, locking it in the forward position until the trigger is released. I appreciate them trying to make the lawyers and Cowboys happy at the same time....Like that could happen! Asa
  5. Thanks Cowboys! Found what I needed..... Asa
  6. Looking for a slide hook screw for a China made Model 97 shotgun. Does anyone have a source for parts for these guns? Thanks for any help you can offer, Asa
  7. Thanks for all the input I plan on following up on some of the leads. NRA "Fair" is a lower grade than good, not sure this one would rate a good.... Thanks again, Asa
  8. As the title says. It is an original manufactured in 1889 by my search of the info available out there. 24" octagon barrel in 38-40 (38 W.C.F.) cambering with no special features. This gun functions (tested with a primed empty case). All parts there, dovetail for the magazine tube is loose in the bottom of the barrel (could be an easy fix). Has been refinished and the marking are faint in some places. Wood is all there and fits decent, has initials carved in the side of the butt stock, possibly by a kid or an illiterate, they are backwards or upside down, not sure which. I would rate this gun in FAIR condition as per NRA standards. The barrel is a "sewer pipe", very faint traces of rifling, may be shootable at cowboy ranges. Needs to be checked over by a qualified gunsmith (not me) before attempting to fire it. No idea what its worth, internet is all over the place on prices. Any ideas? Pictures for your viewing pleasure:
  9. Nice looking pistols! I have done business with The Spaniard, a true Cowboy! Good luck! Asa
  10. Major Count Insanity and I in on Ike's! Can we invite non-CC's? BTW Happy B-day!! Asa
