  1. Them Open-Tops is easy ta Clean ,,, Fill a Basin/Sink (in Camper) with hot water and little dish-soap..Pop the wedges, drop da barrel , cylinder and wedge in the water,,,, wipe the rest down with a rag

    soaked in Ballisol .... A couple of passes through each cylinder hole and bore with a brush, wipe the

    wedges then set the warm paets on some paper towel to dry ... Have a Cold one for da grump!!!

    Then make a couple of passes threw each hole with Balistol on a patch put them back together ,,, good

    to go ... It's da rifle that takes the time ta clean ,,, or the 97/87 ...

    Doubles is easy ta clean and my 66 in .38-40 only needs the bore cleaned and a shot of balistol on the carrier and a wipe down with an oily rag ... It gets the side plates taken of bout once a year for a

    more complete cleaning ....

  4. Hey Kid ;

     

    Mine are Navy grip guns in .44 Spl. and I'm filling the case with 3F , like yours mine have 7 1/2 inch barrels ...

    For shooting indoors this Winter I am trying a upper range load of Trail Boss under a 240gr. RNFP...

     

    I am using my .38-40 66 with 3f under 180gr. RNFP bullets full case loads ,,, Or I am trying Trail Boss using the max Cowboy load in the Manuel ...

     

    I'm still using my Husky under lever (made in 1884) or my other hammered doubles mostly loaded with Black ,,,,, but for indoors I'm using "Score" low recoil ...

     

    Grey Beard , Keep up the fine job you are doing of healing and we will shoot together down the road a spell ,...

    Give Granny a Hug ...

    Let us here about them !!!

     

    I just got a Mate for my Uberti 1872 Open-Top in .44 Spl. 7 1/2 inch with Navy Grips ,,,, So now I have "Buck" & "Boom" ...

     

    I haven't had a chance to shoot "Boom" yet .... I have been shooting full case loads of 3f in "Buck" for the past 3 years ...

     

    Our outdoor CAS season is done up here also ... So it's smokeless time for indoors ...
