  1. Please send a PM to Jackson Longstreet. He is one of the top guys in the NSSA (Civil War shooting competition). He is probably one of the most knowledgeable experts on the Spencer rifle in the U. S.. If you have trouble getting hold of him, please PM me and I will sent you his email address. Let him know that Tennessee Mongo recommended him.
  2. Contact VTI gun parts. The link to what you want is listed below. https://www.vtigunparts.com/store/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=42&cat=Uberti+1873+Rifle Maybe one of our very good cowboy gunsmiths will chime in on the best way loosen that stubborn screw. All my new rifles go to my cowboy gunsmith to be tuned and short stroked before I ever play with them. I let him deal with that type of problem. Graybeard was quicker on the trigger than I was, but he was right on.
  3. +1 for what Widder said about .38/.357. I had lots of .38 brass before I started and dies; that's why started with .38/.357. After 15 + years, I have many other calibers, but I still shoot .38 more than anything else. Everything is cheaper in .38 and if you want to eventually be very competitive, it's the way to go.
  4. Like Widder said, Curly Bill Kelly of Harriman, TN knows these guns intimately. PM me if you need contact information.
  5. Another step I've taken with my doubles (besides swabbing with silicon) is using a good chamber brush first. It really helps. I love the one I've listed the link to below. I got it from a different vender, but it's the same brush. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1255119175?pid=119175
  6. The Estate bases are brass plated. I never knew that they were steel until I put a magnet on one. For a cheap shell, they're good.
  7. Listed below is the chamber checker I like. I have 3 SKB's. All of them have been tuned by the top smiths in the game and none of them like (reloaded) AA's. I do reload and nothing but Remington STS or Nitros go in my double. My wife's 97s will eat anything so I reload AA's for her. As others have mentioned. Before I started reloading for the shotgun; Estate shells are what we used. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/101827769
  8. Alpo, It would be much easier to attach nylon pocket holster with Velcro. Take a look at the link below of an Uncle Mike's pocket holster. As a leather maker, I'll tell you this would be much easier to sew through than leather. I've used this brand and different DeSantis holsters for pocket carry or for holster in my wife's purse. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/101410511
  9. Snakebite, Yup, the picture is incorrect, but what they send you is correct. I just got a pair of them a month ago and what they sent me are SB hammers.
  10. I was just on midwayusa.com. They are currently in stock. Order the SB assembly; not just the hammer. They are $39.99 each. I've posted the link below. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1021569210?pid=848561
  11. I started using it because it's almost impossible to "double-load" a case. I had use titegroup for a long time in non-cowboy guns, but I know of several cowboy friends who have had disastrous results from over charged loads using TG.
  12. You are fortunate that he will be leaving soon. I was in management and was asked by the top person in charge to give an honest assessment of my new boss after CEO had received numerous complaints. Naively, I gave her my honest opinion about the man's incompetence supported by numerous examples. I ultimately was demoted and, even though I was honest and didn't initiate the report. The new guy had been the CEO's hand-picked guy and she felt I had been disloyal for not supporting him. The "new boss" was finally fired after three painful years, but I never was promoted again. Tread carefully.
  13. Beacon, I have used Fiebing's leather dyes to help match colors when staining rifle stocks to match Uberti colors.
  14. Yes, it can be done. The first step is to remove the leather finish to accept the new dye. I would recommend Fiebing's deglazer for this job. Use Fiebing's professional oil dye to dye it black and then finish with Fiebing's TanKote. You could experience a little "bleeding" from the dye. That is why I normally don't dye the backside of gun belts that I make.
