                         Things have tightened up both ends with import/ export..if I was there then I would bring back to Aus but wouldn't want to have someone else try to  do it for me.

      Best wishes to you both..regards Mohawk

  6. Dee Mak...... I still have the grip frames and triggers and hammer sets for those guns. iF YOU WANT TO RESTORE THEM TO ORIGINAL i WOULD TRADE THEM BACK TO YOU FOR THE BISLEY PARTS.


    Just a thought. Maybe originals would sell better for you...Regards..RT

      Good to hear from you.  I'll definitely give that some thought.  Been struggling with my new knee.  I think the difference in the walk with the knee has given me a lot of lower back pain.  It's finally starting to get better.  I have good range of motion so I just need to get over the sore back.  Looking forward to seeing you in the spring.  Winter well.  God bless. 

    2. Rootin Tootin

      Rootin Tootin

      Yup. My knee replacement caused some walking issue's. Had Planters Facitius show up on my god foot for awhile..  Better now.........Had some good results this year. My rehab took about 3 months with full range of motion after about 8 months, but not enough to affect the game.....Going to Winter RANGE THIS YEAR!!!


      Winter well my friend. Have wonder holidays......

  7. Larsen, I've been reading about the expansion of classes into sub categories, provided the numbers exist.  Will you be offering Elderstatesman Duelist or Silver Senior Duelist at WR?. How many will you need if either is offered?  I am Currently signed up  for WR as a Senior Duelist, because at the time there was nothing more offered, but at age 71 could qualify for either Elderstatesman Duelist or Silver Senior Duelist, if offered.......and would be willing to make the switch...


    Your thoughts please.  Thank you  Rootin Tootin 21707

  8. Hey Mohawk. Had a chance to shoot with KC Woody a couple weeks ago. Great guy. He made a pistol shop on a side match, with a fixed site pistol, that was like the shot in the Magnificent 7 where the guy was riding over the ridge  and Colburn shot him.  GREAT SHOT!!!!  Guess you guys down under don't need rifles....


    Hope all is well with you..  Regards  RT

                            Yep Woody is a great guy..we shot together at the Gold Coast Territorial back in July.

      Yep we don't need no dang rifle to get the job done.

      Hope all is well your end too my friend.

      Best wishes to you both.

      Keep me updated on your travel plans. If at all possible I would like to shoot with you again. This time on my home turff.  Regards....Paul   aka  Rootin TYootin

  9. Hey dog, the reason I didn't jump on your gun was all I have is $1100. I don't want to offend so I'm continuing to look for one at that price point.  I enjoyed shooting with you at Fall Roundup. Maybe our trails will cross again. I'll be in Branson next week and Tennessee for their regional in Nov and Winter Range in Feb. Best of luck  Regards......Rootin Tootin

      Good Afternoon:

      I enjoyed meeting you & shooting with the folks at Fall Round-Up as well.

      Good shooting in your travels & thanks!

  12. I sent info to the Facebook page as well.  My SASS #21707, live in Iowa, Midwest Region. Been a SASS member since 1998 and have been shooting Duelist since 1998. I would like to be a Pistolero. How do I qualify and sign up.  My good friend Ima Olcowhand told about this group and I sure would like to join.....



  13. I'm thinking of making a 7 1/2 Ruger Vaquero. I have a barrel from a new model Blackhawk that will fit an Old Model Vaquero but want a blade front site since it needs to be a Vaquero with a 7 1/2 barrel to be legal for SASS.

    Duece shoots 7 inchers that he built and thought I'd try and build one to see if there is any benefit over my 5 1/2's 

    That's  why the question. 



  14. Hey Mohawk... Good to see you are still around.  I'll be going to Winter Range this Feb.  Any chance you and the misses will be traveling this way any time soon..... I'm shooting Wisc & Branson in Oct and Tenn in November as well. Any chance you are going to be around for those this year or next........... Regards....RT

      Hope all is well your end..best wishes to you both.

       Regards Mohawk & McGinty

  15. do you still have the short stroke?

  16. Sir, I don't have a lot of money currently but I can scrape together $900 if you need the cash. I'm not a low baller just short of funds. No insult intended. Just trying to help.......Regards

      Heck Know 32821

      Sir I of all earth people can understand being short of funds. I just can not let it go for that price, What if I was to pay for shipping would this help . You would not be sorry to be the owner of this fine shooting iron, you would be envied by all your posse  members . What could be better than that.


    2. Rootin Tootin

      Rootin Tootin

      Understood. Can't do that currently but if things change I'll get back to you.. Sorry

      I just saw your post on Lemon Squeezer.  Let me know if your still interested.


      Thank you.



    2. Rootin Tootin

      Rootin Tootin


      Forgot about that inquiry  Do you still have; what model, how much, pictures  


    3. Spittin Lead, SASS 51230
  21. Cody, just a quick FYI (no disrespect) a 12 stage main match with a 4 stage mini match and speed rifle side match will exceed 200 rounds easy if you play a lot with the side matches........Just  saying.......RT

    1. CodyMaverick


      I thought you might mention that.  Since I usually clean all my guns thoroughly before a big match I like to shoot my main match guns for just one stage of the mini match or a couple of rounds of the speed side matches and then use my back up guns for the rest of it.

    2. Rootin Tootin

      Rootin Tootin

      Good idea about side matches and mini matches, regarding backup rifle.  If there is no fix then I'll just tear down and clean as required.  Thanks for the idea...........RT

    3. CodyMaverick


      Having given it some additional thought.  If your new rifle has a slightly larger chamber than your old one. You could experiment a bit with your load recipe using the new rifle and try to get a little more pressure to expand the case more.  Perhaps a little more powder or a different powder and/or the next heavier bullet in your caliber.


      I noticed one suggestion was to measure and compare the fired cases from each rifle.  Good idea, but if my guess is correct you'll find the diameters to be the same.


      I found out the hard way that my '92 has a much larger chamber than my '73 when I tried a suggestion of just neck sizing my brass.  The neck sized brass from my '92 was very hard to chamber in the '73, they would go in but took a lot more force.  Now I use a Redding Dual Sizing die and it works great.  Since I insist on shooting .45s, blowback and regular gun cleaning are just a way of life.  Good luck

  22. Mr Two Feathers......... I still have the $1100 I offered a couple weeks ago. Sorry it can't be more but med expenses took the rest.......Not ment to be an insult, just an option if you still want to sell........Thanks  RT

  23. Charlie, do you still have the 73.........RT

  24. Believe in GOD, Protect your FAMILY, and Respect your FELLOW MAN

  25. Sure I can wait.....Any idea what the price point will be??  Thanks  RT

    1. Slick McClade

      Slick McClade
