  2. I’ve knocked the stop loose a couple times the gunsmith silver soldered it back in place Next time he said he will laser weld it

  5. I did modify the loading gate on my uberti. I used the sanding drum and removed the lip in the front edge of the loading gate switched to a Cowboy Carty rifle and haven’t played with it enough on reloading to start modifying the loading gate
  6. Being a Left handed shooter, I load thru the gate with my right hand. Good reloads average 1.5 to 1.7 seconds. Non-perfect reload usually run in the 2.5 second ballpark. I carry 5 rifle reloads on the center of my shotgun belt. I Had a custom Evil Roy belt made by Kirkpatrick leather in 2003 setup with double pouches on both sides of the rifle reloads.
  7. I run 38 short colt ammo loaded with Vihtivouri N-310 and 38 special ammo in my USFA revolvers with no problem switching to the longer ammo. The short colt ammo chronos around 700 FPS with single digit standard deviation the 38 special is about 900 in rifle and 575 in pistol with SD in the 50-60 38 Long Colt won’t feed in my rifle without a new Carrier
  8. I ordered a pair June 2018. Still waiting
  9. I agree with Doc Pain, Stages were great, targets were easy enough to hit if you watched your sights a little. I think these were some of the best stages that we have seen at EOT. (I've been to 6 EOT's @ Founders ranch 2005, 08,14,16,18,19) The stage instructions allowed the shooter options on most of the stages. Left handers could go the opposite direction if desired. While i didn't shoot my best match this week, I don't think it was the stage design, description or target placement that kept me from shooting well. Yep, it was the monkey behind the gun that didn't do his job to shoot a clean match. I guess the pressure was more than I could bare... Big Thank you to Lassiter, Deuce and all of the workers that made this a great shoot ! 3GC
  10. The Winchester doesn’t feel much different, hammer up or hammer back, when levering. I don’t know how Carty does it. The feel of running the lever is amazing
  11. Been shooting Colt McAllister tuned Uberti’s since 2003, just started shooting the Carty tuned Winchester. Absolutely love the Winchester. Was about .4-.5 seconds faster with the Winchester in the first week. loved it enough to go thru the hassle of have a second rifle made. (2018 shotshow rifle not available in 357)
  12. The factory stroke measures 6-3/8” from stock screw to point of lever. Carty rifle measures 4-7/8”
  13. Finally have a second rifle to send off to Carty here is a photo to compare the length of stoke from new unfired rifle and the Carty short stroked Winchester
  14. It’s been along time ago, but we used to shoot 2”-3” groups at 200 yards with a Thompson center hawken 45 cal try 105 grains of FFF real black with the TC maxi-ball 3GC

  19. Just received a video of Carty testing my test rifle . I can’t wait for it to get here BD7A9A00-04B1-4B19-AA42-F6908369960C.mov
  20. Try feather lite hulls, they are shorter than STS hulls. My 87 works better with them
  21. I prefer the deluxe border rifles in 20" and then the smith reduces the barrel weight 3GC
  22. I have some new unfired winchester brass in 32 S&W short that I could part with.

    I'll go search for it and see what I can find. I think I bought 3,000 pieces back in 2003. I know I have at least 1000 new in the bag still.


  23. Colt isnt fast, but he builds the best rifles I have seen.

    Last I heard Long Hunter shoots a colt rifle

    So if you want the best rifle money can buy & you have time, colt's the guy to call

    Good luck,
