  1. No, More scary is Shooing Bull saying: Give me a poke!
  2. Correcto, the Uberti screws are more like 6x41 or 42 and are definitely not 6x40. If you have patience, hate yourself, forgot to order the screws, and covet $4., you can cut the tread of the Uberti screws into the base of Whisper Springs by the "twist in a half turn and twist out a quarter turn" method. But you have to really want to save $4. and you still end up with Uberti POS screws.
  3. Palo Verde no longer takes in guns for repair work but does sell a few '73s and '97s as match ready guns Palo Verde is now giving classes on how to do it yourownself (at least for a while)
  4. As G Joe said, you do not need to disassemble the rifle to empty the mag tube or clear a jam. Watch the video under "New... in yellow" on Home page. Will show how to clear your rifle on the clock, not go to the unloading table and disassemble your rifle. https://pvgunworks.com/
  5. Was darn good shooting and darn good self control Proud to say I know Cody James (even though he's a slow ice cream deliverer) Not to slight Cody's excellent win, but I think Robyn Da Vault was running a real close second Both of these guys are excellent shooters and real good people.
  6. Mr. Bull, I do not know that this is your problem but, when you said it occurs at speed, I remembered a few rifles with that problem and they took me some time to figure out. The rifles checked out visually to be timed perfectly when functioned slowly -- but when ran at speed, they behaved as if carrier rise was retarded = out of time. Turned out that the parts were so worn and loose that the momentum from running the gun hard would run the breech bolt back further than when ran slowly. I gutted these guns and installed new, within tolerance, parts and the rifles were "fixed" . As always, your mileage may vary.
  7. H. Dave, I can understand your desire to know, but ,,,,,,,,,,,,, Being a dealer/manufacturer myself, I do not believe it is appropriate to mention other manufactures in a disparaging way on the Wire or any place else. And,,,,, I'm sure there are those who would disagree with my opinions. Sincerely, Palo Verde
  8. https://pvgunworks.com/product/gun-carts/ Will be at Winter Range
  9. There are at least 4 (I think possibly 5) different aluminum carriers sold in the US. One needs this mod, the others do not. The brand of short stroke kit also effects the way these things time and the rate if breech bolt "withdrawal" at a critical point in cycling the rifle relative to the carrier movement.
  10. I just had one of the new Marlins (.357) come in for an action job. I was quite impressed with the improved machining (finish on parts). It also appears they have addressed the extractor problem and a number of other things. I installed my favorite spring kit at the lightest tension setting, of course, and the rifle is actually quite nice. The breech bolt was even serial numbered showing it had been fitted to the gun and lots of other small things. For me, fit of wood doesn't mean diddly for Cowboy Shooting. I think Marlin/Remington/whoever owns them might have a winner. (For those of you who know I have retired again, the gun was "in the queue" before I announced retirement. )
  11. HJSM ammo is apparently not intended for Cowboy Action Shooting -- according to their folks at the factory. Had a customer come in twice in one week with obvious overpowered loads damage to his '73 (bent toggles). Both out of same box of HSM ammo. I called HSM to discuss the problem and try to figure out if something special had happened to a batch of ammo or if different ammo got mixed in or ....? I was told (by HSM) that: their "ammo is not intended for Cowboy Action shooting" and that "the picture on the box is just something the marketing people came up with" That is what the manufacturer told me. Your mileage may vary.
  12. I've seen a few, new manufacture Uberti 73 rifle kits with the old style lever/pinned cam. Occurrence seems random. Mario, he usa what he finda in da box or ona da floor
  13. Don't really mean to toot my own horn, but there are a number of folks that don't make their own shot shells and might be looking for this Yes, it's mine, but I post it mostly as a public service http://pvgunworks.com/product/shotgun-12-ga-snap-caps/
  14. I'm sure they expect Trump to reverse it. Perhaps it will help fuel the groups that support it if Trump reverses it. It's all about preparing for the 2020 election. They are campaigning already. There has not yet been a Democrat candidate selected for 2020 and the mouthy ones that get their sound bites and name in the news are trying for the spot. It's all about the election.
