  1. KH24 said it clearly, the later ones used the 38/357 bolt. I have five 32WCF 73's of which four are the very early ones. They do have a smaller bolt head designed for the smaller case rim . I have had no problems with neither feeding nor extraction. The one with the 38/357 head does get carbon under the extractor way more than the early style. And, it does take some extra "re-fit" care to get an extractor to work right with any replacement extractor on the later bolts. The statement about dealing with the feed chamfer at the chamber mouth is correct too. It is also possible t
  2. Folks, I have been hunting with BP for over 55 years. Deer, elk, antelope, rockchucks, coyotes and finally "Africa"!! I used a 40-70 Sharps Straight with hand cast medium soft lead bullet powered by BP (Snakebite, check it out) Federal Magnum primer and a combination of wads and lube. It was effective to 350M for an Gemsbok, 200m Waterbuck, 130(+-)m Impala (x3), 70m Zebra, 120m Eland, 276m Blesbok, a running Warthog at 50m, a 200m Kudo and a few incidental camp animals by the land owner. What a hoot! Upon arrival and a trip to the shooti
  3. How come the grandest shoot of all has to fall in conflict with the Four Corners Regional Championships?????!!! Tully, you're killing me with a drastic decision! Oh, woe is me..... Ol' #4
  4. Just as a point of departure, I understand that when Colts re-introduced the 1873 they used Uberti small parts to build them. The Uberti's I have worked on over the years resemble the early Colts very closely. That said the, Quality of the units lately swings a different direction. Ol' #4
  5. If you have one (or two) please let me know price and availability. Kel-Tec P17 22 RF auto pistol. Needing some training gear for great-grandkids....and their grandmothers. Ol' #4
  6. And Robert DuVall at his best as well. A story well told! Ol' #4
  7. Diablo, Just for thought.. A while ago to get a good, competitive, dependable set of C&B's would run you maybe 199$ at Cabelas, or.... THEN!!!!!to get them to work right as described above you would need another $200-240 to be able to shoot it reliably. Just sayin' be prepared... Ol' #4
  8. 32WCF!!! The best most accurate Winchester cartridge of its age. Then Colt picked it up and made a regular cowboy happy. A rifle and pistol of the same caliber, and at an affordable price for both the hardware and the ammo!!! Gunslingers could have the 38 WCF and the 44WCF and later the Colts 45. But the 32 WCF was the working cowboys tool. I got my first one in 1959, a well used Winchester 1873, cost $37.50!!!! The gun shop had a rain barrel full of them..... Six months later a 7-1/2" Colts 1873 followed me home. It has been a love affair since.
  9. I don't have the original only skeletonize in the gun . thank you

  10. T. S., Not so much specialties, but practice limited to: Colts clones (cartridge and C&B), 73's and Browning BSS'. Just "un-retired" enough to stay busy and active. Ol' #4
  11. I have a pair of 32's w/convertible cylinders but Model P's/ Ol' #4
  12. Mingo, I have some, not sure they are what you saw at WR but I did have mine out. Brass and thinned well! $60 exchange for a brass original. Send a PM if interested. Ol' #4
  13. Both my wife and I shoot rigs from Ted Blocker leather. Heck they even have one named after me!! BUT, it was designed by Coho Kid (the owner) and me after a dismal experience we both had at EOT with Frontiersman a long time ago. Since then has adjusted the pattern to fit Rugers, and all varieties of Colts clones. Like one poster said, cry once........ But get good leather... Ol' #4
