  1. Joe summed it up very nicely. As noted, most Ubertis will be pretty nice although over sprung. A few others will need a little more work.
  2. I actually disagree with "shoot the rifle a while" because some of the springs are too strong. The best example of that are the lifter/lever springs. The strong spring WILL wear your lever. Do you want to have to replace or repair your lever? (I had to.) The hammer spring is not as critical, but it will increase wear. These are easy to swap out. You can then shoot the gun with reduced wear. Then decide where you may or may not want to go.
  3. Very sad. But WHO wants their Covid restrictions to never go away. So sad So viscous. Pray for our nation. Vote for those who oppose this sort of socialistic dictatorship.
  4. Ask and answered. There are some folks who want to spread BS so they can do as they wish even if against the rules.
  5. The 6.5 Creedmore is very popular so there is a great choice and availability (normally - not right now) of ammunition options. As mentioned, it is flat shooting, speed6 and accurate with relatively mild recoil. So of those listed, that would be my choice.
  6. My biggest mistake in SASS was missing out on the annual Round Up in Fort Worth for that very reason. (That was in the early 1990s.) I had only shot or or maybe two matches, but I would have loved to have shot that match. The only qualifying statement is is the shooter familiar with safety rules. I was raised around shooting so I was "fairly good." Fortunately I had shot at a few ranges including an indoor range and attended a pistol match so they further refined my safety practices. If anyone is in doubt, just as a more experienced pard to work with you for just a little to be sure of your safety practices. For nearly all shooters, less than an hour would be needed to have you confident and ready to go have fun safely.
  7. You are correct. Mine is a Navy Arms model. They made both 66 and 73 models with the slightly smaller frame.
  8. It really depends on how old. There were 3 major changes that i know of. Back in the 70's and possibly early 80's the frame was a smaller size and had many different parts for both the 66 & 73. Then it was pretty consistent with a larger fram and standardized design until roughly 10 years ago. Then they slightly changed the bolt design as has been mentioned.
  9. SASS Clubs in USA You can expand to your area of preference. https://www.google.com/maps/d/view?mid=1a5THNVZ2Dm_-CUf9h8jW6-fO8k1DPpab&usp=sharing
  10. Holy Smoke! Don't you know there is a coin shortage?
  11. I've wondered about the followup product for Froglube - Seal 1. It apears that Seal 1 may be a slight improvement.
  12. Frog lube is an excellent rust preventative. I think it is probably a very lube (dry lube) as well. Helpful for more dirty areas where you would not want grease or even mobil 1 oil.
