  1. Sort of like the letters on Model 97s. They indicate changes during the production run. Earlier 73s will usually have no letter and later ones an A or B.
  2. Just went out in the garage and measured some screws to save you some time and money. Uberti screws are .212", Pietta screws are .234". A 12-32 screw is .218. So a Uberti screw might screw into a 12-32 hole (The Uberti screw is either metric or a no longer used English thread) but a 12-32 screw will not screw into a Uberti hole.
  3. Like I said if it was easy plenty of people would have found them by now. 12-32 is not a common size and are hard to find. The Brownell's thread checker is also just a thin plate. Many metric screws will screw into the thread checker but when you get the English size it won't fit in a deeper hole or will be .002 or .003 larger and won't fit. Good luck. If you find a sources of plug screws let us know. I have actually run a 12-28 tap into the frame hole as a 12-28 screws was a tad to large OD to fit. Looked terrbile when done. I still like the screw mod in Abilene's post. I call it an oil hole.
  4. Yep a little weird. Everyone of the show even the little kid has murdered someone. Montana seems worse than Chicago. The whole crew should go to jail and give the land back to the Indians.
  5. I go by "Next Shooter." That way I get to shoot more. Standing around for 45 minutes to shoot for 20 seconds gets dull otherwise.
  6. I have searched for years trying to find replacement screws. Never could. I thinned some and cut new slots but I like the ones Abilene is showing is his photo. Those are as nice as I have seen anywhere. This is one of those things that seem simple but is a big giant PITA.
  7. Start at about 3:30 for installing the barrel.
  8. My action wrench. 20" of oak with a filler block. As far as makeshift equipment have you looked at the Uberti video on YouTube? They are using wood blocks and a wooden action wrench. I went to one of the biggest names in Single Action tuning a few years ago to get a barrel changed. We went out into the shop and he put the barrel in a pair of wooden blocks and then tightened the vice jaws with a cheater bar. Had an old baseball bat that was trimmed to fit the SAA frame window. It ain't rocket science. Below is a screen shot from the How It's Made series and their tour of the Uberti factory.
  9. I have a barrel vice but it is set up for round barrels. I take two pieces of hard wood and make a square notch that fits the barrel flats. When the two pieces are squeezed together in a GOOD bench vice you wind up with wood on four of the barrel flats. Remember to use hard wood and that if you do not get the vice jaws tight enough and the barrel turns in the wood you may damage the octagon corners on the barrel. Also fit the hardwood block into the frame window as closely as possible. Most of the time they are not all that tight. Here is a photo of the barrel removed.
  10. They are buying a new Hunter Biden painting for the lobby and those ain't cheap.
  11. Make sure when you are doing the test that you point the muzzle up at a steep angle so the round slides fully to the rear. Lots look OK when the rifle is level.
  12. Omicron Delta Five. Captain Kirk went there. Travel restrictions, vacination requirements for people coming from Canada. Yet two million illegals have come across the southern border with no covid tests or vacinations. Makes you wonder what the purpose of the other restrictions is supposed to be.
  13. Was bored so I drove over to Dillon's. No primers and no powder that I could use. Picked up a couple of miscellaneous parts.
  14. ^^^^^^^^ Yep the butt draggin was interesting the first time. Passable the second time. Tolerable the third time and irritating after that.
  15. I just saw that episode a couple of days ago. Took awhile to figure it out. Since it was 1960 there were no reproductions. Using original 73s allowed that them to use 5 in 1 blanks and 73s back then were dirt cheap.
  16. You know what everyone is going to say, "badges, we don't need no stinkin badges."
  17. Yul's carts are works of art. Being a humble peasant I am allowed to look at them but not touch them.
  18. Federal still sells these for trap shooting. At the extreme high end for once fired they go for aound $14.00 per hundred.
