  1. I had one come off exactly like that about 10 years ago.... It was 2 days before the SW Regional. Didn't have time to find someone to silver solder it.... So I decided to JB Weld it, figuring I'd get it fixed "right" later..... 10 years now, more matches than I can count and it's still holding strong. Since then I've JB'd a couple more for folks and they're holding too........ Disclaimer....... I used JB weld because I needed it done Quik....... I never expected it to hold as well as it has ......... The whole "trick" with JB Weld is surface prep!! When I did the others for my shootin' buddies I explained that the JB fix was temporary. The "Correct" way to repair it is silver solder by a competent Gunsmith.
  2. Use ta shoot with him a Lot... Helluva Nice Guy, Great Shooter, Best moustache in CAS and I'm pretty sure Handlebar Bob is his GrandPa
  3. There are Too Many Categories now! But If SASS ever creates a Category for Plastic Swords and Air Soft.......... I'm Outta Here
  4. Jed I.... Good Video!! But Here's a couple of tips for Ya..... The LH Sideplate will come off much easier if you'll loosen up the Lifter & Lever Springs First. And when you're reassembling, after the Bolt-firing pin Assy, Hammer & all is back in place, but before you put the Links back in.... Put the Carrier, Lifter & Lever and their springs all in and all held in place with the screw through the LH sideplate But the screw not all the way through the frame, about 1/8" from home.... and the LH Sideplate needs to be upside down so you can get access to both sides...... Don't worry once you get the Links back in you can still easily rotate the sideplate counter clockwise into place and finish snugging everything back down Those two steps will make the job much easier! Give it a Try on you're next video
  5. 14.382 cents per primer w/ Tax, Shipping & Hazmat..... That's about $4 per Stage just for Primers.......... OUCH, That Hurt!!!! But, It'll keep me Shootin' fer awhile longer at least
  6. I can remember buying ammo for my .22 at 7-11 when I was about 13
  7. I have a few, mostly RR Grade from late 19th & early 20th century..... Here's one that I carry fairly regularly. It's an Elgin 17 jewel 3 Finger Bridge pendant set, mfg in 1900 It's not RR Grade, but I really enjoy carrying it because of the glass back Display Case it's in. Let's you watch it ticking away 122 years and it still keeps Perfect Time!
  8. Nope.... The original Nickle plating was done at the same time I had the engraving done and had rubbed through in several places, was starting to have rust issues. So I send them to APW Cogan and they redid the finish in Hard Chrome. Yep, That was my post but the pictures in it were when the Nickle finish was new.... like 15 years ago er'so........ I dont think I will ever be able to wear off the Hard Chrome.
  9. And a friend of mine had them do a '73 carbine in the same finish... It Looks Awesome!
  10. I ended using https://apwcogan.com/ For the brushed finish Hard Chrome They are Really Good Folks !!!! Here are the guns today..........
