    Today I used pistols with wood grips (hoping it'd help), the other pistols are stag grips.


    Are these wood grips, smooth?

    Try a checkered set.

    Same with me, Lumpy.


    I like and use Eezox also, but not as often as I use Strikeforce.

    There are many really good lubes on the market.


    Basically, I just spray Strikeforce in my action and blow the excess out with compressed air.

    I've experienced no amount of excessive wear on my 97's in over 10 years and they keep functioning perfect

    year in/year out.  


    If you follow GJ advice, you'll be doing it right and more thorough.  


    Good luck.  





    Do you mean Strikehold?

    I don't remember the make/model as it was some time ago but i know i was shooting the classic coach gun - side-by-side 12 gauge with hammers and double trigger. 


    You REALLY need to attend several shoots and take notes.

    Hi All - I'm just starting to build out my rig and the next purchase (after getting my hands soon on a pair of nickel Uberti short stroke SASS Pros) will probably be a shotgun. I have heard both Stoeger and CZ as good coach guns to begin with. I don't think I will go the pump shotgun route, at least at this point. Any other options I should be looking at?


    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Have you attended a shoot and done a 'hands on' live fire?

    I took your advice and picked up the Starrett 120A-6.
    This is the only Made in USA product in their line.
    Pricey, but buy once, cry once.

    I have misplaced my vernier that I bought while working as a Toyota mechanic in the early 70s.
    Ticks me off... misplacing tools, especially ones that cannot be replaced.


    That's the one I've been using for the last 25+ yrs.

    OK, found the thread:


    And confirmed from various sites I need large pistol primers (the mention of "large rifle primers" was acknowledged as a typo in the thread). But I recall some recommendations for certain brands being better than others, either for ignition of BP or for slicked guns which might strike softer (not hard primers).


    Then I need wads and overshot cards, shot, and powder. Oh goodie, more research and then searching for product.




    Any brand LPP is fine for BP shotgun loads.

    No need to drill for 209's.

    Real BP is easier to ignite than smokeless.
