  1. I've got a brace of Uberti 1860's, and followed these instructions, even though they're for Pietta, Larsen Pettifogger wrote them up about eight years ago; http://www.theopenrange.net/forum/index.php?topic=5659.0 There's also the video Bottom Dealing Mike has on his YouTube page discussing smoothing out the hammer to prevent 'cap sucking'......easy alternative to 'cap posts' or other modifications such as what Long Hunter Shooting Supply is offering.
  2. Ran across a handful of Henry BB shooters over the years, None of them had problems, rifle ran smooth and respectable. And they all had big smiles.
  3. Hey Robert Mitchum is in El Dorado!!!! You shoulda told me Forty Rod!
  4. This is my problem, where did you source your metal caps with the O rings?
  5. Haven't seen The Shootist in decades, and not familiar with El Dorado........
  6. Cowboy Action Shooting, it's an international language!!

    A few years ago I was able to get a hold of an original in 44.40 for an affordable price, for what they are, with found money I had.......turns out it had mismatching numbers (whatever, I don't care), and from what I've read, this is most likely assembled in the 1890s from parts left overs (again I don't care).......... That being said, comparing it to the Colt Peacemaker, and the S&W Schofield, it does seem over engineered for what it is, and it's time. On the surface, Colt seems minimalisc in design, S&W has more bulk, but a quick top break to dump spent shells, and the MH has sliding loading gates, frame twisting for dumping spent shells, all kinds of nook and crannies for fouling to get into......ugh. Unique design? Hells yeah! .....but seemingly over engineered. I'm not a firearm historian specialist, but how it all seems to me.
  8. Wasn't Bruce Dern the only guy to shoot John Wayne in the back? I'm not a John Wayne or the highway fan of his, but after that, I wanted to punch Bruce Dern in the face, even if it was 40 years after the movie!
  9. You forget B Western can be shot gunfighter, duelist, or two handed.......and they all compete against each other.
  10. I was thinkin' Outlaw Steampunk 'Frontiersman' Gunfighter with a brace of Le Mats actually........but, there goes that.
  11. Quick question for my fellow Darksiders.......anybody have experience using Poly Coated (Hi-Tek) boolits with real black? Just recently started reading about these, and wondered how they'd work, I'm thinking you'd still be swabbin' the bore after each stage. Maybe the work good with APP....I dunno.
  12. First I'm hearing this.....if I have an alternative to big loobs, that would be nice.
  13. Window shopping for guns one day, when I noticed some cowboy guns in the display, man behind the counter noticed the sparkle in my eye, and started to show me all the different ones they owned. Walked out with my first Ruger New Vaquero, on the way out, shop keep told me he was gonna put in an order for some new Rugers, and that he'll see me in a few months when I get my 2nd one. Few months later, went back an purchased a 2nd Ruger, and the same shop keep told me about SASS, and gave me info for a local club.....where I met Johnny Swan, and Tinker Joe, after a few matches, I ended up joining SASS in summer of '06. Tinker Joe doesn't get out much if at all to shoot anymore. Still working on bringing Johnny Swan to the darkside.....
  14. My pair of 1860s used to bind up real bad, even during a stage with clean cylinder faces, and fresh loob on the arbor. Not sure what you use, but I found synthetic grease on the arbor, and a drop or two of Triflow in the cylinder/arbor gap when the gun is reassembled keeps 'em running for five stages without any problem. Maybe this combo might work on your Remmie's.....
  15. I personally prefer shooting monthly matches straight through without stopping for lunch. Cold, or hot weather, can really be a flat tire on an extended day. Enjoy going to a local cantina and cooling off, or warming up, after a few hours of shooting.
  16. To clarify, cause I can't type, I always thought the TOP shell would be staggered forward. I fixed my post. I watch some tube of you videos of Lassister, and it looks like he has his top shell staggered forward.
  17. I was gunho to purchase one a few years ago, then I had a chance to actually hold one, found it was too awkward to hold, and fumbly when trying to cock it.
  18. I thought the top shell should be staggered forward..... .....anyway, I've got 4 months to practice.
  19. Cap and Ball gunfighter is the only way to roll!! Im gonna put this match on my radar for next year.
  20. Only thing my google fu is able to turn up is that he was some dude who was some sorta of commander in the Mexican-American War, then was involved with the Virginia 5th Brigade during the Civil War..........
