  1. That was one unexpected, but very enjoyable conversation with the Kid. A lot of vivid memories from the fire day, the best included Needa Tailor. Fire out or nearly so, the bomber pilot wishing to make a point, dropped the last of the fire retardant from about 200 feet on the vehicles where we parked, AND US! As it was coming down, Needa headin' for the cab of her truck!! She was NOT going to be painted red!! She should have been in the Olympics! Gawd, I'm glad that I wasn't between her and that Ford! The red guck landed 15 yards short of actually hitting her truck.
  2. PM sent. Nice turkey decoys. Are they stuffers? ;^)
  3. My apologies to OP, DM for my post. This ain't the Wire Saloon. Muley Gil, ...
  4. Na, that's not it. Especially on "Tennesse" style rifles. The hole is for the brass cased compass, which must have fallen out or been removed. Marbles got their start in TN, then moved to Gladstone, Michigan, during the Civil War. You can find the complete story on the internet.
  5. Har, har!! I love that all the passengers on the train are wearing MAGA hats!
  6. Well, Rye, there you go. You are demonstrating your White Privilege and Unconscious Bias. Equity and Inclusion!!!! (Resistance is futile.)
  7. Gave a short talk to employees about email SPAM, including how to use filter to block or prevent blocking email addresses. Got called on the carpet this morning; seems "blacklist" and "whitelist", standard industry terms, are not "sensitive" descriptions.
  8. Old Uberti, or new? Just like the data on the link above does not apply to pre-2004 bore dimensions, Uberti may have changed barrel shank thread dimensions at some point, or multiple times. If you are thinking about rebarelling an action, better to measure what you have, as a start.
  9. YO! COWBOY! Hello! Is there a reason you blew off my PM? I made an honest inquiry on an apparently honest sale. It would have only taken one number, four digits, to respond. Either "1909", or "1916". Not difficult.
  10. Uberti - IT, (ubertireplicas.it), replied to my email: "... With regards to your questions, I can only tell you that these various modifications were made before 1994. We don't have the exact date." Lever, carrier, and groove diameter changes. Did not ask about mainspring tensioner. Also, Uberti/Navy Arms 1866 #14XX: Proof 1968, safety, carrier length= 1.515", bore Uberti/Navy Arms 1866 #3XX: Proof 1967, safety +1 to CC
  11. Doh. "AD". My '66 made 1978, serial number 376xx. Bottom of carrier, front to back, 1.53". My '73 is 1.62", ser 582xx. It's the '73 not showing a proof date stamp...
