  2. If you didn't have all the other symptoms, I would have guessed a spider bite.  But, all the other symptoms together suggest Covid infection.  In any event, you'll know in a day or so.  Have you been vaccinated?  If so, then, hopefully, the symptoms will be mild.  Take care.

  3. This is from an email I received this morning:


    COLT’S MANUFACTURING COMPANY LLC (“COLT”) has recently discovered a potential safety issue with certain Modern Sporting Rifles (“MSRs”). Colt is voluntarily initiating a recall to protect the safety of its customers because, under certain conditions, it is possible that some of these MSRs may discharge a second round when the trigger is released when there is a live round in the chamber.

    Colt is committed to the highest standards of quality and customer satisfaction. In keeping with that commitment, during routine quality testing, Colt discovered that hammers that do not meet Colt’s specifications were installed in certain MSRs that were manufactured beginning on March 5, 2021. The issue will be corrected by replacing the hammers in affected MSRs.

    The recall only covers a portion of MSRs manufactured beginning on March 5, 2021, and includes the following models: AR15A4, CR6700A4, CR6920, CR6920-EPR, CR6920MPS-B, CR6921, CR6921-EPR, CR6933, CR6933-EPR, CR6960, LE6920-EPR, LE6920MPS-B, LE6920-OEM1, LE6920-OEM2, LE6920-R, LE6933-EPR, SP633784, LE6920SOCOM.

    The following chart lists all the serial numbers for those models that may potentially be subject to the recall:

    Model Marking

    Serial Numbers

    AR-15 A4

    CAR022851 – CAR023250


    CR036354 – CR099599


    CR713001 – CR722100


    CR716801 – CR721500


    CR021580 – CR022024

    To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, Colt advises anyone who has purchased a Colt MSR since March 5, 2021 to stop using it immediately and visit ColtRepairMSR.com or call Customer Service at 1-800-971-3216 to see if your specific MSR is affected. Please note: Not all MSRs within the serial number range in the above chart are subject to this recall and this website offers easy, step-by-step instructions to determine if a particular MSR is affected.

    Customer service agents will assist anyone who needs additional help. Our expert craftsmen are ready to upgrade all affected MSRs at our West Hartford, CT headquarters.

  4. It depends on what you think you will need.  USFA guns were made to the same specs as Ubertis.  My USFA pistols started out as 7 1/12 in. 45 Colts.  They are now 44-40 with 5 1/2 in. bbls.  The parts came from VTI and are blued instead of in the white like the original configuration.  The original grips were changed to 1860 Army configuration.  Those are obvious differences, although they are cosmetic and don't affect the function of the pistols.  I can return them to their original condition, if I choose.  As far as internal parts go, there shouldn't be any real difficulty getting Uberti replacement parts. 


    Out of curiosity, which USFA model are you looking at?

    Thanks Rooster. 

    And now I wonder if an old hammer and trigger WILL fit but Uberti's lawyer-driven response is to say it won't. ??

    Could be, but a call to Taylors or VTI could get an answer.

    Federals and $90 a brick because I bought them all. Last time a different gun shop had some federal SPP in I paid $130

    Three years ago I was paying $43 a brick :(

    $90 AUD is still cheaper than here.  $100 AUD here on average and higher if you add in shipping and Hazmat charge.  More like $140+ AUD.

  7. It seems as if the availability comes in waves.  A month or two ago, the larger retailers had days when primers, for example, were available online.  Even though they didn't last long unsold they were there.  The availability of powder comes and goes, although most of the powder available seems to be for rifle cartridges.  Prices don't appear to be headed down although loaded ammo is available for sale in some places at only $25 a box of 50 for 9 mm and $1.00 a round for 5.56 ammo.  So, nowhere near the "fantasy" levels Larsen brought up. 

  8. According to one of Wayne's biographers any appearance by Boone in one of JW's films was agreed to over a handshake; no contracts.  Boone did The Alamo for the coat that his character wore as his compensation.
