  1. Those were done for me by a feller in SE Texas by the name of Marvin Morgan. I found a picture of a single holster in a book of antique guns. It was designed to be worn horizontally across your waist to carry a single shot flint pistol. The floral designs were actually embroidered. He's a hand stitcher but didn't want any part of doing that.
  2. Had these made years ago. Not the best setup for the game but I just liked the design.
  3. Value wise, if you restore it at best you might break even. Maybe a better choice is to have it fully engraves in a historic pattern. I know engravers that use these poorly done guns as canvases for their work. Once finished they command much better prices. But, still affordable as opposed the high end original engraved guns.
  4. Some of those pins are in really tight. Most likely you have one that is so tight it was left protruding. Try pushing it out from the other side out to the left. You may need to use a short starter pin punch to get it moving
  5. These are strong guns, but there is that weak link, the transfer bar. Or, at least the little sheet metal tab pinned to the trigger that lifts it. Like the Ruger, it has a cylinder base pin with a spring loaded plunger on the end to push the transfer bar back enough so it clears the frame mounted firing pin as the gun is cocked. If the base pin jumps forward the T bar hits the bottom of the firing pin locking things up and if you pull the trigger too hard when this happens that little tab on the trigger comes loose and doesn't lift the T bar enough. Simple fix as Buck has found, do away with the T bar and weld up the hammer face. Added; As for the recessed cylinder, just file a small square notch in it so you can see the brass rim of the loaded chambers and no rim for the empty. Or better, have that recess shaved off in a lathe.
  6. Uberti has updated the the firing pin extension attachment to the bolt three times. The First version had the pin, #104 but it was Significantly smaller than the second #104 style pin version. Those smaller pins and with the early Uberti rifles headspaced to the Black powder era specs. (anything in side of .010 was acceptable) they would shear those smaller pin occasionally, but not frequent until the short stroked gun come about. Once the short stroke caught on and the majority of them back then, (early 2000's) were the cut, bent, welded version, that pin would break more often. Probably because the toggle links in some of those cut, bent, welded versions never went to full battery. (kinda like your knees, fully locked you can hold up much more weight than slightly bent). So, about that time Uberti changed to a slightly larger #104 pin. That seemed to help somewhat but the problem did persist. Funny how history repeats it's self. They eventually went to the current version, the #721 which is much like the original Wins were done. The only difference is the originals were also designed to retract the one piece firing pin of the day (no rebound spring back then. )
  7. Those hammer block style Uberti's were also known as the "D" cam guns. They started changing over to the two position base pins in the early 2000's. During the first few years of the transition you would see the hammer block style hammers even on some of the two position base pin guns. But, the hammer block didn't function and they had full cams. I think they were trying to use up the old parts
  8. The post was about their range and the destruction from the hurricane.
  9. Lars, Go easy on those points. Those two points are the first to contact the empty case to eject it. If lower too much it slows to case coming up and can put a bind on the extractor. This is one of the reasons folk are having problems with bent/loose extractor. Normally it is poor timing of the short stroke parts that causes this but lowering those points can make it worse.
  10. If you have shelf space this is what I use. Dish Rack
  11. These were first imported by EAA. there was two versions. The first version had faux hammers that served as cockers. The later version actually hit a firing pin. EAA Corp PO Box 3008, Cocoa, FL 32924 EAACORP@EAACORP.COM Service & Repair: 1426 King St Cocoa, FL 32922
  12. Besides the Rossi 92, I have used them in the original Win 92, the current Japanese made Miroku Win 92, the Browning B92 and the Chiappa/ASM 92.
  13. Hi Ethan, I developed that design awhile back but didn't have time to market it. So, i gave it to the Slix spring guys because they were already making a top latch spring for the TTN's. So, something you should know. You will need to clearance around the bridle where the spring goes under so it doesn't bind the sear movement.
  14. Had these made up years ago. they are patterned after a single shot cap-lock pistol holster. It was worn horizontal across the belt line.
