  1. After about 10 years of shooting, my lever spring was just as stiff as new.  I ordered custom lighter spring which eased the lever opening pressure but then recoil of the first shell fired would reset the safety before I could fire second shell.  Tried to tighten up safety mechanism to no avail.  Finally cut rod to remove auto safety function but retain manual safety if needed.  Since I only shoot this gun at matches and do not loan out to non-cowboy shooters it was a compromise I can live with.  :FlagAm:

  2. I use Go-Jo gritty hand cleaner on a 45 C mop and use a portable drill to polish cylinders.  At the unloading table I just rotate cylinder. tip barrel up and the spent shells fall out, no ejector rod needed (unless a split case).  :FlagAm:

    I would highly recommend a extractor claw from Ranger Point Precision. I was having a feed problem with my early 94 carbine, it solved it.

    Good people to do business with. You may want to take out the extractor and clean the hole out first, they can get full of crud and not work as good.


    As a side benefit the Ranger Point extractor throws spent brass more to the side than the original extractor which threw it forward..  I used to lose a lot of brass down range but now the pickers can find a lot more of it.  :FlagAm:

  4. When checking firing pins for mushrooming, you should check the end of the firing pin that is hit by the hammer.  The end that strikes the primer is not where the mushrooming occurs.  I thought it was until someone told me differently.  Also, the mushrooming is very slight, not readily apparent.

  5. Mudflat Mike is correct on the altitude. You'll be at 7,000 feet.

    Not only breathing issues but sunscreen and chap-stick as well. I forgot about how much more intense the sun light is at that altitude. Had to make a late night run to WallyWorld to find some.

  6. When I started CAS 10 years ago I used AmmoDirect on-line to purchase and reload ammo. They used Top Brass for 45 Colt. I still have a lot of that brass left (AmmoDirect not currently reloading) and still use it for pistol loads. I do use Starline 45 Colt brass for my hot cowboy loads in my Marlin 94 rifle.



    From Bruce Dern's own words...


    John Wayne tole him... "You gonna be hated after this movie"... (paraphrasin')...


    Just an FYI...



    Then Dern said "but they'll love me in Berkley!". Also paraphrasing)
