  1. Just for grins, I sent them a message on their "chat" line, and was told yes, they have them in stock at that price. Looking further in the site's "about us" they are not in Winthrop but actually at info@firearmssuppliers.com. Address: 2442 Austell Road in Marietta, GA. Something doesn't sound right that they can sell 5,000 for 159.00 but Midway and Brownells can't come near that price. Just sounds too good to be true. But if you do buy from them, let us know how it goes.
  2. You can order "turned down" hammer assemblies, or "Alchemista" (lower wider) hammer assemblies for your Pietta from EMF (Pietta USA). They come in case-hardened or nickel-plated.
  3. I'll keep this neutral without injecting my favorite Ruger gunsmith into this... But, Jim Bowie has the only Ruger Short Stroke, that I know of, that preserves the Transfer Bar Safety. Maybe that's important to you, maybe not. He has set up a Winchester SxS Shotgun for me for CAS and he did great work. (I know, this thread is about Ruger Short Strokes, but I thought I'd throw that in there.)

  5. Once you have it out, we tear down and clean these guns so often that many just leave the cover off...

  7. Current selling prices are all over the map. 999.00 to 1500.00 MSRP when in stock is 1329.00
  8. Raven, respectfully, It's not that you expressed an opinion, it's that you denigrated an entire Cowboy Action Shooting Club. How about if you made a video and someone else got on here and said your effort is trash and "Big thumbs down on this group!" about you and your club?
  9. Wow! Price keeps going up...
  10. I'm thinking about a lever-action something or other... “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. ” Perhaps a Henry Big Boy?
  11. Why are you shooting "full house" loads to hit a target 7 yds away? Load them off the gun, or get an extended rammer. 15-20gr of powder, and a .457 ball is all you need for a light, manageable load, that the wt. of the ROAs will soak up. If you want to put in a filler to get the ball closer to the mouth of the chamber, stick in a .450 or .455 Circle Fly Fiber wad.
  12. The Susquehanna Roundup 2001, Top Shooters. Ded-I-Dalton was Top Lady, and Top Lady Traditional, while Single Action Jackson was Top Traditional, Top Overall, and Top Gun.
  13. '66s do NOT have a safety. You'll have to look long and hard to find one of those very early '66s with a lever safety behind the trigger. When you do, please know that replacement parts will be almost impossible to find. IF you were inclined to get it short-stroked, there are no kits that will fit it. Although the rifle in the auction does NOT have a lever safety, earlier ones did. I truly wish that Uberti had left the lever safety in the later iterations of the '66. This is a picture of one with a Lever Safety:
  14. Lipsey had a special run of ROAs in 2017. $1200 each. So, if the price of a new gun is that high, and they sold out... I wouldn't expect the secondary market prices to come down. They were selling at approx. 2K a pair before the"panic buying", they'll sell for that much after the dust settles.
