  1. No, for that little bugmobile Miata, you should find some of the electric horns from a gut truck! "La Cucaracha, La Cucaracha , ... He's got tiny little eyes! ..."
  2. I agree, nice rifles. I like 'em so much that I russled up an "old" Uberti Henry with same safety . I disagree with # 1, 2, & 3. Modern made major parts do not fit OP's carbine. Parts outlets are out of stock, & Uberti does not build for obsolete versions. I'm guessing McC's 5-digit rifle built after carrier change. There is little difference between my 1978 [AD] #37603, and 1969 [XXV], #2065. The reciever notch is to allow loaded cartridges to be extracted from chamber. If receiver notch, then short carrier & obsolete toggles. (Change made between 1980 and '84?) Pro: 1-Strong load gate cup, closer to original cup design; no need to reinforce cartridge stop. Con: 1- Parts availability 2- Quality control; my 1978 unfired commemorative carbine bought in 2016 was pretty on the outside. Full of dirty oil, steel & brass shavings, poor finish on critical cam surfaces. Poor screw quality. (Nothing that BreakFree cleaning, and many hours with a stone cannot fix. VTI has "hardened" screws.)
  3. Naw. The jaw of a salmon is different than a large/small mouth bass. Fish is too heavy, too slippery, and jaw too narrow to hold securely. Slips against the side of the index finger the thumb opposes.
  4. Sure Cycle is for waterfowl hunters with a strong focus on magazine shotgun reliability. Stainless steel magazine springs among the doo-dads available for purchase. You should find something adaptable to your needs. https://www.surecycle.com
  5. As per previous article, stone/file your springs to the weight you want. A cheap spring compressor from a black powder supply shop helps get springs on/off lock plate quicker. Cut small, test frequent. Even with thinned hammer springs, the coil lever spring might be too heavy to "T Boone" all three at same time. A year ago, CZ had only one spring each cataloged for left or right. No mention of "light" or "heavy". Warden's light spring experience seems to be an annomaly. His video mentions replacing buggered with stock springs. Were the modified/lightened/buggered springs inadvertently reinstalled?
  6. Uhm, the #2 is not "just" a model, it is also a trim level. Those shotguns are/were never harware store utility gun grade. They are $4,000 to $10,000 gentry guns. I'd like to find a #2 for $600, 'cept I'd be worried about buying a stolen gun.
  7. My retired duck & phesant hunting partner. Barb wire, concertina, shale slides, sheet ice, porcupines, Russian olive thickets, hidden hornet nests, hidden rabbit holes, cliffs, rattle snakes, and lightly wounded aggressive birds could not stop this dog when he was "employed". In his dotage, on pee break, he trips on a small branch while sniffing for tree squirrels in his own back yard, and blows out his cruciate ligament.
  8. Congratulations to you and Diamond Joy!!
  9. Is it safe to tell a father (who owns guns) that his daughter has a nice rack?
  10. Heck, 2,000 nickle 38 Spl., please. From previous post, I have your mail address, and that shipping is $15.05, for total of $75.05. Check and address confirmation in the mail tomorrow.
  11. How soft is that Hornady swedged bullet? Did it lead up the barrel? Did you try it with BP? Tks.
