  4. I bought mine from Dirty Duggen back in 98 or 99. Comes apart, wheels and axel, Empty brass box comes out for trunk transport. I have a truck and just roll it in on it's back. Big Jake 1001
  5. Colt SAA mfg in 1900 and in 38-40WCF still has some Color Case Colors left on it after 120 years Big Jake 1001.
  6. I recamember yuz Sixgun Shorty. You needed a magazine for your High Standard HD Military and I had 4. I sold you one, hope it worked out for ya and got the gun shooting. We also chipped in and paid a Pards Dues cuz he was about broke. We did good!! I should talk to you about my Colts made in 1900 and both in .38-40 WCF. Also a Colt Bisley model in 38-40 WCF from 1902, come outta TEXAS, 3 gens in the same family. Pair of Colt 1878 Frontier six shooters. one in 44-40 WCF and one in Colt 45. I need a loading gate for the .45 16XXX. I understand there are early and late of the 52XXX built
  7. Wheels come off, Box comes out, rifle and shotgun rack comes out. Locks down with locks on sides, fits in trunk of car. Most important to me was a Place to SIT DOWN. I just lay it down in the bed of my Chevy Silverado. Can be built as a 5-6 gun cart too. Big Jake 1001
  8. Look for and buy an older Rossi Coach Gun with External Hammers. Made in Brazil and imported either by Garcia (mine) or Interarms in VA. They lock up like a tank and you can't buy them new anymore, but a little used one would last you a lifetime.
  9. Married since 1971, my wife always wanted a NEW Car. Dec 22, 2014 I bought her a Brand new Camaro. It has a 323 HP V-6 that's extremely fast and it doesn't Purrr, it Growls!! The Camaro has a 6 speed auto and has paddle shifters on both sides of the steering wheel. it will put you back in your seat. 19 mpg city and 30 mpg hwy, and it's fun to drive. I've driven Pony and Muscle cars all my life and this car should delivery many smiles per gallon without breaking the Bank paying for the 426 HP V-8 or the bigger 7.0 Liter 550 HP V-8. Years ago the V-6's started to get really good HP and have not
  10. I order many things all the time from Amazon for 4 years now. I NEVER pay for shipping if orders are $25 or more. I signed up for a FREE trial of Prime and used it twice, but they wanted ?? $13.95 a month, whether you bought anything or not. PHOOEY!! Canceled after my trial period. I always just click the FREE shipping box and usually get my stuff in 3-5 days. Sometimes my order shows up in 1 day (who knew) maybe they like me.
  11. Yes, you have to be 100% rated to get the FREE plates. Regular Disabled Plates with a DP (disabled person) still cost $$$, but gives you the parking privileges in store parking lots and FREE at public beaches where it can cost $15 to park Like the Huntington Beach and Newport Beach Pier Parking lots. City street Parking meters are also FREE for DP and DV plates. I'm also FREE to Enter State and National Parks with the DV plates. Boat Ramps are also FREE.
  12. I wanted to go shoot all my guns before I Croak, so I loaded them in the truck and went to the Range but it was closed. I knew a range across the Lake but you had to take a Canoe to get there. Too much weight I guess and it overturned and dumped everything to the bottom. Dang!! Now what to do?? I decided to build a rifle cuz I love Walnut and Steel. If I works good I'll build another one. Made a Shotgun too. Works good. Big (what's got his tongue firmly planted in his cheek) Jake 1001
  13. I'm a 100% rated Disabled Vietnam Veteran. My Calif Plates are FREE and surprised me when I got them. 16972 DV. I thought the 1 was me, I was in the USMC from '69 to '72 and the DV is disabled vet. How cool. No need to pay for Plates and these are very easy to remember. I've had them on 3 Chevy Trucks now. Big Jake 1001
  14. So true, soon after buying a basket case 97 and one that would not take down I realized what was going on. 


    "................ I can't tell you how many 1897's I've seen for sale at Gun shows with the mag tube in upside down. I've been allowed to fix a lot of them for the owners, in just 10 minutes with my Swiss Army Knife and they've been very thankful. Some just don't care and say NO, it'll sell anyway.


    You can't believe how much easier it is to take down and put together a proper '97 with everything right. No forcing of parts and it works so much better. I was wondering if your Mag tube was in correctly, or upside down. The little piece of Metal with the 2 small screws holding it on the tube in front of the wood should always be under the barrel, not on the bottom when assembled. The later ones had a pushed up bump instead of the screwed one on the tube...again under the barrel, not on the bottom. That way the interrupted threads can line up with the ones in the receiver correctly. Just sayin'"


    I couldn't have said it any better. That and putting the ring in backwards. Also found one where the nimrod filled off most of the nub on the ring, so it would work, yikes.
