  1. Something that will 'stain' us forever. OLG
  2. Good to hear-Does he want to see the lever also? PLEASE post up the outcome. THX, OLG
  3. WARNING-Remmy will sit on it....FOREVER. OLG
  4. Agree, and had to make several passes. Did preheat the area with a LPG torch. My 2 potable gennys won't run a 220vac 'stick' welder. This repair was done in the 'field', at the range. 7018 is a good rod for clean steel and really likes higher amperage. OLG
  5. Very kind words from the Master. Thank you I would really need to have the bolt and lever in hand to make any 'fix' suggestions. I have never seen this type of damage before. Is this damage visible from the top of the bolt's slot? OLG
  6. Mike-What are you welding it with. I have only used my wire feed welder with .035" flux-core and had some issues with cracking later on after lots of hits. OLG
  7. OK-THX. I was looking on the surface of the bolt and not inside the notch. Never seen this issue before. What's your take on corrective action? OLG
  8. Like I said-PLEASE put a mark on the bolt(pencil works well here)so we are all looking at the same thing. OLG
  9. Really need to mark the bolt where you think this is. All I see in that 1 picture, are machining marks. Respectfully, OLG
  10. AR series is the best, but you really can't weld it. Just look for 1/2" thick hot-rolled flat stock and that should serve you well. Not for jacketed bullets at all........ OLG
  11. The guns that fit YOUR HANDS..... I shoot SD and use 5 1/2" bbl, OMV in .44. Don't BUY till you TRY... OLG
  12. That's the same thing Ima said....... OLG
  13. Scorning hits with a .22 on our steel targets is a PITA, and many times the timer doesn't 'read' the shot. BTDT OLG
  14. I'm missing 'Harvey Mushman' and 'IROT' Wish Sixgun Shorty the very best OLG
  15. Your '87 is GTG. But, you start out with 2 shells loaded. BTW, Some SASS clubs allow you to 'stoke' the SG. Cajon Cowboys is one. OLG
  16. GOOD Sure as heck needs one Along with a written apology to 'Lefty Longridge' who runs it OLG
  17. Oh-heck yes, W3G is alive and well and a 'blast'. Come out to Piru, CA. and give it a go Someone really should have done some research before printing nonsense like that. BTW-maybe that writer should have shot a match of W3G before running 'off' like that. Carry on, OLG
  18. Funny look'n maybe. But don't think it's 'illegal' for SASS. PWB will be along to provide the final answer. OLG
  19. Don't buy anydangthing, till you have had 'hands-on' live fire practice. OLG
  20. Ask Slick. If you shoot 'white'. Unique and WW231 are good choices for powder. Slug your barrel to confirm bullet dia. OLG
  21. I've shot LOTS of warthog level, BP loads in my 87's. Never saw the 'glowing' you speak of, even after and 8-10 shot string. OLG
  22. You should be fine-'Our' '87's are patterned after the 1901 10ga version for the longer shell. Try 2 3/4", that's all my wife and I run..... OLG
  23. Yup- Make sure you keep the 2 carrier pivot screws 'TITE' OLG
