  1. I had one and had full intentions of making it my first CAS shotgun. This was prior to the Winchester 1897 being the only legal pump gun for the game. I was young and a complete gun nut but I lacked the knowledge I have now. The shop I bought it from convinced me that it was going to be the perfect SASS gun for me. I even remember taking it back home and putting a box of Federal Top Gun target loads through it. The more research I did I found out that Marlin did not want these guns to be shot especially with modern ammo. The shop took the gun back and I bought a Stoeger instead. It was cool though and different.
  2. Hopefully they are sending you prepaid shipping labels.
  3. A good friend and smith I know who goes through a ton Rugers selling as match ready packages returned a pair a few years ago for some pretty major issues before starting work on them. He is very OCD and numbers stick in his head. A year later he received another batch of guns from a different distributor, The numbers stuck out to him on one pair and he confirmed in his log book that they were the very same pair and had made it way back to him a year later still with the same issues that he encountered before. He confirmed with the original distributor that they had returned them to Ruger..........now that's pretty crazy.
  4. Hate to say it but it's not exclusive to the SASS Vaqueros. I bought some Talo Rugers for my son and it was virtually the same story. The good news is they cleaned up well and slicked up very nicely and have been great guns but the amount of buffing compound that was on and inside the guns was laughable. I have known two people that work/worked for Ruger and they said that the amount of temp. help they use is amazing. They also both stated that the expectations for getting guns out in "x" amount of time was basically unrealistic while having any expectations for quality control. Still love Ruger and I am ok with dealing with some of the smaller issues. I transfer quite a few guns (actually the bulk of my business) I give zero consideration to inspection other than confirming the serial number. If you buy the gun from me directly I will bend over backwards to make sure it's right, hazards of doing business online. Clean em up and put some springs in them and shoot them. You'll forget about the dings after you put a couple dozen in them or at least it won't sting as much.
  5. I can only speak to the ones I have handled. They seem very robust and a hybrid between a Colt and Ruger. The mainsprings are flat Colt style and will take aftermarket Colt mainsprings. They have Colt style half cock with a transfer bar which some people report as being a little fragile. Boomstick Jay I think has welded up several and removed the t bars. They are attractive from a price standpoint especially with Ruger prices increasing as well as the Italian guns. What I like about them is they are different. I might get a pair to play with and review sometime.
  6. With 14 NM counties already declaring 2A sanctuary they are gonna need more troopers.
  7. Last night the city of Edgewood NM voted to become a 2nd. Amendment Sanctuary City. Our very own SASS CEO Misty Moonshine and Wildshot spoke at the meeting. I could not be more proud to be a part of a organization that walks the walk. You can listen to the audio here Misty starts at about 1:08-15 followed by WIldshot.
  8. Spoke to him this afternoon, I am going to go with him for the authentication.
  9. I have a Colt SAA that is known as an artillery model. I came with and interesting story from the previous owner. I have had it lettered by Colt and all they really did was confirm that it was indeed at one time a service revolver. Does anyone know of anybody that tracks down the service records of Colts. I was given the name of the man who apparently carried it in the Spanish American War. I don't mind paying for the service either if it is authentic and reputable source. Thank you for any help on the subject or experience shared.
  10. Remington discontinued that offering quite some time ago.
  11. Paradise Pass will be launching a pretty cool program at their monthly match in April. It's going to be a category called Linerider. For $15 (plus the cost of a normal match fee) a person looking to try out CAS/SASS will be able to rent an entire rig which includes Revolvers/Rifle/Shotgun/Ammo/Holster rig and a cart. The revolvers and rifle will be in .22 and shotgun will be a SxS or 97' with Featherlite shotshells. Many of us have and are willing to loan gear to folks, but on many occasions I have seen people balk because they are not comfortable borrowing someone else's firearms. They will also be assigned a mentor for the day to help them. I think this is going to work well and it gives folks a better feeling of "ownership" of their day.. Paradise Pass is a privately owned range and also has a full service gun shop on sight and is very experienced in interacting with new shooters. Because of that we get 12-20 spectators who come and check it out. They also have a large social media following and we will be using that to launch the program and get people interested.
  12. Sam, that actually helps a lot and makes me feel less like a crazy person. Thank you.
  13. I can get you the Winchester Short rifle in .45 Colt with CCH receiver and Grade II/III Walnut for $1350 delivered to your FFL.
  14. Title says it all. Looking for stock lifter lever and links for the Miroku Winchester 1873. Not interested in any other style or make. Let me know what you have and how much you want for them. Thank you. Interested in multiple sets.
  15. Trying to get a very old Spanish Sistema Anit&Char SAA clone up and running. Need a hammer, hand, and bolt. Was wondering if anyone has experience with what the best choices in parts would be. I think I need to stick with 1st Gen Colt parts but not 100% sure.
  16. Got any match video of that last transition you mentioned? Would love to see it in action.
  17. Widder, I have been curious about that very same thing. My ATF field agent suggested NOT doing a e bound book but I'm not quite sure why.
  18. Every game has rules MB. It's never been easier than right now for a shooter to start. The availability of info, gear, support etc. is at an all time high. That being said I don't see watering down the rules anymore than what we have in the name of attracting new shooters, and I don't think that's what you mean. If the membership and TG's see the SASS default starting position as an issue which is sure can be mostly in enforcement then maybe it is time to look at it again. I don't use it in my stages. My belief is the intent is for it to be used when nothing else is provided to bring some continuity to the game and in theory it should.
  19. SOLDHungarian P9M copy of the Browning Hi Power in 9mm. These are excellent guns at a fraction of the cost of a Browning Hi Power and they keep going up in price. This is a surplus guns with finish and grip wear but functions great. 1=13rnd mag.No box or papers $365 shipped to your FFL and will accept credit cards for no additional fee (excluding AMEX). Email me at deucestevensllc@gmail.com. Thanks for looking. SOLD
  20. SASS default is punishment for lazy stage writing.
  21. For me if it's one run only I won't even get my guns out. Let em run fastest period. Since I never ever get to live fire I use side match day as a way to blow off steam and hang out with friends. Course I'm just an old exhibition shooter and thats all I got to hang my hat on anymore.
  22. I know this rifle well and have watched him shoot it for the last ten years. It's defiantly got some miles on it. But it works as it should and the timing is correct and tuned with quality parts. For half the price or less of a new one you are getting a tried and true gun that is ready for the range.
