  1. I mostly shoot 1872 open tops .The sights on them are virtually invisible however. When I shoot matches where the target distances are more like the “old days “ I shoot my USFA Rodeos, they have sights I can actually see lol.


  2. Had the pleasure of shooting with him at EOT in a warmup a couple years ago. Awesome guy as well as a great shooter! A class act , for sure!

    here is a sketch. Red line is the general shape. As I stated before take a little material at a time and test often. Also have a spare or two just in case something does wrong.

    Thanks! It looks like I can take the gate off without further disassembly, is that correct?

    Has a flat spring on the backside about 1.5 inches long.  You would shape it the same as you would the loading gate or trigger spring on a 92 clone. Learned how to do this from Nate Kiowa Jones. It isn't rocket science.

    So Dave, are you saying to “Hour Glass” shape it?


  5. I have a Chiappa 1886 Winchester Takedown that I love except for one thing, that’s right , it’s a “meat grinder” on your fingers. ANyone have any info on how to lighten the loading gate on these rifles? It is an exact copy of the Winchester(no funky safety or rebounding hammer, if that matters.

    Help!

    I shot another match up at Cajon today and it was fantastic. The rebuilt range is incredible. I wish we were allowed to take some pictures because IMHO, Cajon is a CAS jewel. Bear Trap and crew did an outstanding job and the ranch owner pulled out all of the stops so that CAS would be the feature attraction. 

    If you don’t mind my asking, who is stopping you from taking pictures?

  7. I bought a set of “do it yourself” mold at home about six  years ago at  Cabelas. Still have ‘em and use ‘em! Cost under $20. Don’t know the brand, all I can tell you is they’re blue lol.


  8. If you go with Open Tops , be aware they are NOT good to go out of the box. I’ve been shooting a pair that I had Boomstick Jay work on  for five years with no issues. .He hand fitted the internals on these guns and they are awesome. I would say if you’d rather not send them out, go with Rugers.
