  1. Cap Guards & Cap Rakes Both do the job --Dawg
  2. Coffinmaker knows what he's talking about. For me, a cap jam that ties up the gun, is one of the most frustrating things I know. All my competition cap guns have something to prevent cap jams Half of them have Cap Guards that were installed years ago by Rowdy Yates out West. He's been retired for a while now, so Coffinmaker fitted Cap Rakes to the other half They are as reliable as cartridge guns, and I have just as much confidence in them as my cartridge guns When I pull the trigger, I want the gun to go BOOM! --Dawg
  3. Hi SD: I probably have some 10 gauge fiber wads If you're interested, I will dig them out & send a photo & a price Send me your email address --Dawg
  4. Happy Birthday Darlin' Hope today's a great day! --Dawg
  5. If you shoot a stage with a pistol reload, cap gun shooters load all 6 chambers, & cap 5 at the loading table. Then, when the stage begins and yer on the clock, you cap the 6th chamber BEFORE you start shooting the pistol. --Dawg
  6. They just fit right on. This was a selling point of these revolvers back then. I don't think they even advertise them anymore. So, I don't know if they still swap out so easily. A while back, I tried to put a 44 barrel on my 45 frame, & it wouldn't index properly. And one of the 44 barrels wouldn't go on either, so I would need to have a gunsmith do some fitting if I wanted to have one frame & multiple cylinders/barrels --Dawg
  7. SOLD -- THANKS Hi: I have a Dillon Low Powder Sensor that needs help. It was stored with the batteries in it, and they leaked. I used alcohol to clean the junk that leaked out, but the buzzer/light do not work. I did the same on the low primer sensor that was stored the same way, and it now works, but no-go with the low powder sensor. If you are good with electronic stuff like this, I am selling it for $20 + shipping. Thanks for looking --Dawg Here is Dillon's description & picture: LOW POWDER SENSOR Stock Number: 16306 Provides an audible and visual reminder when it's time to refill your powder reservoir. When the powder level drops to about 1000 grains, a buzzer will sound and a bright LED will light.
  8. The lube on the wad is more about keeping the fouling soft than about stopping chain fires, although wads do that too. Firing a cap gun without lube will give you a hard fouling ring in the barrel that will destroy accuracy after a while. If you insist on no lube, run a patch down the bore at the unloading table, just to keep the fouling in check. --Dawg
  9. Open tops are made by Uberti. Uberti & Pietta grips do not interchange without working on them. When I started, I had Open Tops with 44 cylinders & barrels and 38 cylinders & barrels I had them in 5" and 7.5" lengths. Loved the versatility -- I could switch back and forth at will, and they dropped right in. They handle just like cap guns. I still have three 44s with 7-1/2" barrels, one 5" barrel, and a 3" barrel And, one 45 with a 7-1/2' barrel and a 3" snubbie barrel. Larsen E. Pettifogger wrote an article that includes changing the grip profile, if I remember correctly I believe I have a copy of it in my files -- If I do, I'll send it to you (PM me your email address) --Dawg
  10. These aren't black, but maybe they could be useful: $5 each plus shipping --Dawg
  11. Thanks Slim: Not being a Ruger-Guy, I don't have a gun to try them on. I'll bring them to a shoot, & see if I can borrow one to see if they fit. --Dawg
  12. Moe: You will notice in the images, a small part of the side of the backstrap is showing, there is a bit larger gap at the back of the triggerguard, and a bit of the side of the triggerguard can be seen as you look down the inside of the curve toward the bottom of the grip. Also, there is a bit of grip extension at the bottom of the grip. These grip panels give your hand a solid grip on the ROA, but the fit could be better. Hope this helps. Thanks --Dawg
  13. They were a bit small. They weren't as tight as an old model Vaquero grip, and a bit of the side of the backstrap was showing. I can photograph it if you like. The pard from whom I purchased the ROAs from had been using them, but I like the better fit of the eagle GF grips. Please let me know Thanks --Dawg
