    Go easy with the KG9, have seen and heard of folks pistols flying right out when stopping after running to another position.

    Reckon I’m kinda in this camp..

    I want my pistols to stay in during fast movement or stops..


    just another point of view :huh:

    Primers all are seated properly and stand tall without wobbling.


    Both rifles were stripped down and cleaned again. Bolt, firing pins and related assemblies were inspected for any abnormal wear or poor alignment.


    The hammer tension screw on the 73 was tightened approximately 1/4 turn.


    The Marlin mainspring had a washer added to increase the tension.


    Today's match, with the same ammo had no misfires.


    Could be one thing, or a combination of things that led to the firing failures.


    Thank you Cowboy Carty for your information on the Marlin.


    Big thank you to all who read this post and replied.


    The cowboy way in action!

    And a BIG ATTA BOY to you folks!! Ya done good..

  3. You also (on yer ‘73) might  tighten the hammer spring screw about a quarter turn at a time until ya get good hammer strikes.. they do look a little light..

    just sayin..

  4. Fellow cowboy shooters.. maybe I’m too pessimistic here..

    if ya think so I apologize for this post..

    but we have a guest (outsider) on our sight wanting our help..

    Says he’s wanting us to join him in his lawsuit..

    If he asks for funds to be sent.. I certainly would beware..

    I have waited quite a while to post on this thread..

    but my first thought Thursday when I read his first post..

    “He may be a scammer himself”

    He has all the right answers to everything..

    Yeah I know.. pessimistic.. but just beware..


    Just sayin..

  5. Good morning Popcorn..

    Creeker and Sixgun.. probably hit the nail on the head..

    Biggest thing on the badge should be “Shooters Name”..

    centered and in contrasting bold color..

    I completely enjoyed the Illinois State Shoot but yeah..

    the badges were hard to read.. 

    I had to get real close and stare at it to read the name..

    Other than that keep doin’.. what yer doin’..


    Just sayin..



  6. Fellow ‘73 cowboy shooters..

    With your ‘73’s with modern smokeless powder (non black powder)

    Are you running your brass carrier lubed or dry?

    If lubed.. what type of lube?




  7. Ok.. I figured it out..

    When I would turn it upside down and back I could hear a slight click..

    I took the side plates off and a pin fell out that belonged in the left side spring..

    I don’t know if that is the carrier or lever spring but it was on the left side..

    I took the spring out.. reinstalled the pin.. put the spring back in..

    and v-u-a-l-l-a.. fixed.. thanks for your patience..


    just sayin’

  8. Uberti 1873 .. 18” barrel 38 special.. Pioneer Gunworks Super short stroke..

    I was down in the basement dry firing.. no dummy rounds.. rifle works great every time..

    Don’t know why but I was messing to close the lever on a new restart of dry firing

    and I had the rifle upside down to close the lever..  don’t know why but I did.. 

    The rifle completely locked  up when trying to close the lever when gun is upside down..

    Lever is stuck open.. I didn’t want to force it but when I turn it right side up closes easily..

    I have tried (when upside down) pushing the carrier down to know avail.. it doesn’t move..

    flip it over works again perfectly..

    My other ‘73.. set up the same way closes easily upside down..

    Suggestions please on what to look for..

    So.. I reckon I’m sorry for you folks.. but I’m back..

  10. I was asked a couple years ago from a friend about this very thing.. I had some Federal small pistol..

    Like now you couldn't find them anyplace.. I told him I would check  4 different dealers prices.. (all of them out of stock of course) and average their prices.. he agreed.. said it seemed fair..

    We did business..

      Two listings above you will find the directions to get to the member list.

      Obviously it works best if you know the members name or at least a part of it, in order to narrow down the search.

      Hope it helps in the future, should you need it.


    Thanks Kit..

    I also found I can just type their Alias in the little envelope window thingy 

    after you click on it.. Kinda does an auto fill (elimination) as you type in alias..

    Personal messages to other cowpokes..

    Old wire.. I did it quite regularly.. Never seemed to have any problems..

    New wire.. I get notifications of "likes" on my posts..

                      I get notifications of "someone quoted you"

    but I'm having a hard time messaging another wire contributor..

    Finding them, if they haven't posted for a while..

    (is there an easier way to find a fellow cowpoke?)

    I have tried putting "members list" in search window to no avail..

    But then, after fiinally finding one of their posts..

    Going to their letter icon... Posting a message..

    I have never got a notification that he responded..


    Rance ;)

    thinkin frustration..:unsure:


    Let me know if you got a notification that I replied to your message it should show in the letter icon and an email, unless that is turned off.


    Got it!! Thanks..

    My email notifications are shut off but I got the little icon in the top 

    right hand corner..


    By the way ... In searching for members..

    I found out in messaging that when you click on the little

    envelope to private message.. 

    A blank window shows up to receive the message..

    As you type in their alias.. It goes through (alphabetically) 

    all the members eliminating them as you type their alias.. NEAT!!


    Rance ;)

    Thinkin Thanks!!
