  1. Here are a few items I may bring to the swap meet. Let me know if anyone wants to take a look and I will make sure to pack them. Otherwise guns and the press are HEAVY and some might get left behind. 1. Pair of Pietta 1861 round barrel navies. Barrels shortened to 6” to make them easier to draw and handle. Have Treso nipples. $350.00 pr. 2. NIB Uberti 1860 Army antique finish. Arbor fitted to barrel and hand spring replaced with Ruger plunger and spring. $275.00 3. NIB Pietta Spiller and Burr. 36 revolver. $225.00 4. IAC Model 97 with large front bead and Wild Bodie Tom six shot magazine kit. Used in two WB matches several years ago. $450.00. 5. Model 96 Swedish Mauser. $350.00 6. Japanese Type “I” rifle made by Beretta for Japanese in late 1930s. $300.00 7. Ruger .44 Mag carbine. I looked for years to find one of these with the Williams receiver sight built in as part of the receiver. Had it for 30 years and have never fired it. $650.00 8. Pedersoli Lightning .44-40 rifle with 20” octagon barrel and factory pistol grip. $850.00 9. Pedersoli Lightning .357 with 20” octagon barrel. $800.00 10. Uberti Lightning. Unusual configuration. It is a 26” barrel Carbine! (Long thin barrel with a carbine butt stock) .45 Colt. Shot once about ten years ago. $800.00 11. Texan 12 gauge reloader. Model 11-A with original instruction manual. Old American made loader made out of cast iron and steel. $75.00. Mounted on a $30.00 maple bread board so it can be moved around.
  2. Phantom at the Winter Range Speed Raking side match.
  3. Several years ago it became apparent that with shooter numbers pushing 800 trying to get vendors and sponsors to donate 800 prizes was impractical. So Winter Range (WR) decided to purchase gifts for the shooters. Over the last few years if you attended one or more WR's you will have collected a lot of shooter equipment. Going through my closet I came up with the following: A rifle case A shotgun case A pair of pistol rugs A pair of dust covers A shooter bag A drink cooler A brass bag, and A tool kit These gifts are purchased and not donated and in some years, if a pair of an item is given out, 1600 purchased. I wonder what WR will give out this year?
  4. They started in June of 2008 and spanned several issues. There were a series of articles on Pietta and Uberti. For some reason most are not in the index so you have to scroll through each edition. The first one starts on page 38 of the June, 2008 issue.
  5. My dad's birthday was December 7. He went to the Navy recruiting office the next day, December 8. He was 17.
  6. Just peel back the foil and put it in the microwave. For Thanksgiving I am treating myself to the large size Hungry Man dinner.
  7. Morning Larsen, if you dont sell the rugers in 32 mag at winter range please contact me. Thank You Oak Creek Martin

  8. Can you tell me more about the Colt Lightning .38?  Condition, s/n, photos.  Thanks, Oregonian

  9. Here is one of my Lightning pushers. This one is made from a .30-30 and some aluminum rod. Fits in a cartridge loop.
  10. I have been trying to get more information but the Match Director for the WB match is out of town.  Basically the WB side matches are not in the schedule because the WB shooters decided a few years ago that only people signed up for the WB match should be able to shoot the WB side matches.  So, the side matches have basically become an ad hoc affair.  Depending on how tired people are they hold the side matches on Monday, Tuesday, or both after the match shooting for the day has ended.  They use props and targets that we do not include in the regular side matches and decide what they want to shoot themselves.  Since only WB shooters can shoot the WB side matches the shooters just spread the word among themselves.  This year there are 133 shooters signed up for the WB match which is the most that have ever shot the WB match anywhere in the world.

      Thanks Larsen, I greatly appreciate your response.

  11. Larsen, I've been reading about the expansion of classes into sub categories, provided the numbers exist.  Will you be offering Elderstatesman Duelist or Silver Senior Duelist at WR?. How many will you need if either is offered?  I am Currently signed up  for WR as a Senior Duelist, because at the time there was nothing more offered, but at age 71 could qualify for either Elderstatesman Duelist or Silver Senior Duelist, if offered.......and would be willing to make the switch...


    Your thoughts please.  Thank you  Rootin Tootin 21707

  12. I'm thinking of making a 7 1/2 Ruger Vaquero. I have a barrel from a new model Blackhawk that will fit an Old Model Vaquero but want a blade front site since it needs to be a Vaquero with a 7 1/2 barrel to be legal for SASS.

    Duece shoots 7 inchers that he built and thought I'd try and build one to see if there is any benefit over my 5 1/2's 

    That's  why the question. 



  13. after pouring off the dirty water, rinsing and pouring off the rinse water I just pour the brass and SS pellet mix into the separator and start turning. I see no need for putting water into the separator. My separator has a Claim Shell type top that closes and keeps all the SS pellets inside. After a few turns, I just pour the pellets back in the tumbling drum, ready for a new batch of dirty cases. You are gonna LOVE the results you get with the wet tumbling. Just for your information,  99% of my brass cleaning is on Straight walled cases such as 38 spl and 32 H&R, and I have no problem with pellets hanging inside the cases. I doubt that you will have any problem with the slight necked down 44-40. It might become a problem with some highly necked down rifle cases. However I did some 7.69 X 39 cases and had no problem.
