  1. If the below is what you have the grips are really not that flimsy and many duelists like the thin profile. One thing to keep in mind is that the grips (at least on mine) are a three piece design. Replacement one piece grips may need some work to fit and if using two piece grips you will need to drill a hole for a locator pin in the grip frame.
  2. These are for delivery/pickup at EOT. I do not plan on doing any shipping.
  3. Dave, send me a PM so we can exchange phone numbers and arrange meet at EOT.
  4. You can pay me at EOT. Send me a PM and we will exchange cell phone numbers.

  6. Thursday night is swap meet night at EOT. This year I have decided not to try and haul a bunch of stuff to the swap meet. So I am posting here.

  9. Impossible to tell without photos and a better description. One man's very good condition is another man's grey gun.
  10. Shows you the pesent state of the popularity of westerns. Eight of the ten on the list are dead. Eastwood and Duvall are both 92. Fortunately I did not have to suffer through the list. I clicked on the YouTube symbol then clicked more info and a written list popped down.
  11. Hodgdon issued a follow-up to the above annoucement. This reads - The Clays series is not currently being produced along with the IMR Enduron series. These are exeptions to that statement. We do not expect any Clays in 2023.Luke OtteCustomer Service ManagerHodgdon Powder Co.6430 vista dr.Shawnee, Ks 66218 If you are hoping to find Clays or Trailboss you better start looking for a substitute.
  12. I love fruitcakes too. Although I could not bring myself to vote for Joe or Kamala.
  13. February 4 and it is sunny and 75 degrees. This work party is the last big one before set-up begins in just a couple of more weeks! The finishing touches on construction projects for new props for this year's EOT are completed. A little break in the action for some cowboy port saw practice. Painting is finished on a perfect day where it is warm enough for the paint to throughly dry before being put in the containers. A bunch of fence posts are refurbished and painted. Someone had a great idea. They found an old plow and used the metal discs for new bases for the posts. Banners are stretched out to make sure there is a flag for every nation that will be represented at EOT. A final review of the checklist is made to make sure everything is ready to go for set-up. At lunch Rattlesnake Slim goes through some details on what needs to happen and in what order when set-up begins. February is going to be a busy month in Arizona. The Arizona Cowboy Shooter's Association (ACSA) will be having an EOT warm-up match from February 10 - 12. Cowtown (which is just a few miles west of Ben Avery) will be hosting Fire and Ice on February 25 and 26. The Old Pueblo Shootists Association will also be hosting a warm-up match down in Tombstone on February 25 and 26. For those that do not know EOT takes place at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility (BASF). BASF is a public range where everything has to be moved to and removed from the range within a set number of days. Set-up is scheduled to start on Tuesday, February 21. That is the day most of the steel gets moved as it has to be on the range before the fronts are built and block access downrange. The set-up of the buildings and props will begin on Wednesday, February 22. Lots of people come by the range to visit and many stay to help. So come on by and watch the progress of a town being built in the middle of the desert. If you have the time or inclination feel free to stay and lend a hand. Registration opens at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 26.
  14. HODGDON POWDER UPDATE 2023 QUICK SUMMARY: In 2023, we anticipate powder availability to return to Pre-COVID conditions. Our powders will be readily available on dealer shelves and for purchase on our website. While demand has remained at a record high for now nearly 3 years, we look forward to closing the gap between demand and supply and thank you for your patience. WILL ALL YOUR POWDERS BE READILY AVAILABLE? While there are some exceptions such as our Enduron and Trail Boss powders, the majority of our powders will be easily located via various retailers.
  15. The the single extractor 87 in the photo I posted is in the 28,000 number range. I just typed the number in the Winchester serial number search box on the Winchester site and it came back 1890. I'm to lazy to get out the three double extractor models I have to look at the serial numbers. So, sometime after 1890.
  16. Got an email from Rock Island auctions this morning. They are saying this is an opportunity to own a well documented Savage trials gun for between $6,500 and $9,500. Most go for far more than that but this one is not in as good of condition as others they have sold. Something I learned on their website is that 181 of the 280 guns used in the trials were repurchased by Savage, completely refinished and sold to the public. For some reason this one was repurchased but never refinished. Thus its less than pristine condition.
  17. Lump, the later and more common Winchester 87s had two extractors. The action on the ChiCom 87s is the same size as an original 87 which is why Cap put a note in the box that Winchester AAs were the preferred ammo. AAs are on average 1/16" shorter than an STS or Gun Club. The action is no where near the size of a 1901. Here are a few photos. The easiest way to identify an early 87 is to look at the fore end. The older ones have a solid front mag tube mount and one screw in the forearm. The later 87s had a barrel band and two screws in the forearm. The early 87s had one large extractor. The plate on the other side is to knock down the carrier. It is rigid and does not move. A view from the top. The later 87s have two smaller extractors. A view from the top. For SASS shooting, using modern plastic hulls, I prefer the old single extractor version. It is easier to load and extraction with light loaded SASS ammo is not an issue.
  18. Even the French have broken out their balloon force which was first launched in 1783.
