  1. No one ever has saved anything by reloading. (Most) everyone has money set aside for their hobby, you will spend all of that money on said hobby. If you reload, after initial investment has been recouped, cost per round goes down, therefore you get to shoot more. If you buy factory ammo, cost per round is higher, less shooting. $ + reloading = more bangs for the buck.
  2. All Uberti 19" ('66 or '73) carbines will hold 10 rounds of .357, .38-40, .44-40, .44 mag, or .45 Colt. If it doesn't, probably has the wrong mag spring installed.
  3. This, no pins required. I use a squirt of Armor All car wash and wax and Lemi-shine. Couple hours in tumbler, rinse and dry. Much less trouble.
  4. Lightened springs and basic polishing of the action is all you need if you aren't trying for top five at EOT or WR. Better off spending all that money on ammunition and practice. After shooting the rifle in that configuration for a while, then you can look into short strokes and other things.
  5. I always wondered how the mounted cowboys knew he was coming back.
  6. My anecdotal evidence from dealing with toggle link rifles since '95 is the big bore rifles are less problematic. That's what the originals were designed around and the smaller calibers were adapted later. All Italian rifles have guidelines and suggestions instead of tolerances and standards, and whether they were put together before or after a three Chianti lunch. Once gone through by someone knowledgeable and set up properly, the big bores seem to have a slightly longer mean time between failures (MTBF), and an even larger mean time between stoppages (MTBS) over the small bores. I don't really see reliability as a good defining factor unless you don't have ready access to someone nearby to keep them running. If you don't have someone nearby, then you just have a spare on hand. Pick your poison. FYI all my CAS rifles, the calibers start with .4, although I have had a few in the past that didn't .
  7. Red Rock Shootist (Karl of InRangeTV) ran the W3G down at the Livery for a couple years. You should contact him for more information.
  8. The 1866 musket in .45 Colt holds 13, uses the same mag tube as the 24" rifles. The 1873 musket has a longer barrel and mag tube and holds 15 IIRC.
  9. I have the same problem, tried all the usual fixes, could not consistently move my point of impact towards point of aim. I just hold on the right edge of the target for right hand and left edge of the target with left hand. Been pretty consistent and successful with that technique for 20+ years now. I don't even think about it now. I can get nice groups about 4" right or left depending. YMMV.

  11. Story I've heard is the best two days in a Cowboy's life is the day he buys a LeMat revolver and the the day he sells the LeMat revolver.
