  1. Colt Frontier Six Shooters, one piece India Stag grips from Nutmeg Sports, roll stamped barrels, (Frontier Six Shooter) black powder frame, bullseye ejectors, case colored hammers.
  2. Chas, Dose that mean you going to shoot that scatter gun in local SASS matches? I been out here 11+ years a have yet have our paths cross at any AZ SASS matches. TB
  3. This is from the SNS Casting Web site, regarding coated bullets: "Over the years, we have noticed one common theme when it comes to dirty/leaded barrels...Powders with fast and or hot burn rates. Here is a link to a powder burn rate chart. https://imrpowder.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/2020-burn-rate-chart.pdf. We recommend powders with burn rates slower than the top 15 on this list, with the exceptions being Ramshot Competition, Red Dot, and N310. We HIGHLY recommend checking out "Alliant Sport Pistol." It's an excellent, cheap, and readily available powder that is made
  4. Like father like son, two winners, nice shooting boys! TB
  5. Match results for the California State Championship are posted here: https://fe50a452-0ae8-4703-9ba9-a04d723acb30.filesusr.com/ugd/7edfb5_c86d3b45a2a44f66b9e869c13bc0e2a6.pdf
  6. Congrats to Leadfinger, great SASS shooter and a great guy! TB
  7. Winchester Serial # listig shows 1939 manufacture: 1939-866938 1940-875945 Looks to be in nice condition after the re-blue. TB
  8. From Palo Verde's web site, he is the premier "73 mechanic here in AZ: "The ’73 will likely lever smoother and your Marlin or Rossi will likely feed better. Personally, I like around 1.530 in a .357 case with a broad-pointed RNFP bullet. The narrow pointed, truncated 105g bullet in a .38 case can be problematic in some rifles if loaded to .38 spl OAL. Some Marlins prefer around 1.510”OAL, others like up to 1.570”. Most Rossi’s like around the same length. Marlins can be very sensitive about the over-all length and, reportedly, sometimes the shape of the bullet." TB
  9. The rear sight was not standard from H&R, someone added it to the rifle, it is required to shoot in some of the SASS long range military rifle matches as they will not allow the use of a tang sight in those matches. I have one of the officers rifles made my H&R in 1973. TB
  10. I have a local pard that has a couple of 20 gauge SKB's for sale, send me a PM if your interested. One has been worked over by Johnny Meadows, and he has another one is a stock gun. BTW there are 20 gauge Winchester AA shells available in low noise, low recoil, just like the 12 gauge ones. TB
  11. I would also like Fast Eddie's contact info. I have a SKB 100 with some issues.

      Non right now, everybody up here is looking for the smaller models


  17. Jabez Cowboy, Just so my simple mind understands this long range calculation, if I am sighted in at say 5,000' elevation and WR is say 1,500-2,000' that's a change of lets say for simplicity -3,000' how much of a drop or change should be expected? Thanks for this info, TB
  18. Mudflat, I you would like I can purchase a case for you at Walmart, I'll send you the amount and you can send me a check. Let me know, TB
  19. New Britain is the home of Connecticut Shotgun, Stag Arms, and World headquarters for Stanley Tools, owners of Dewalt, Back & Decker & recent acquisition Craftsman. TB
  20. Well Larsen, they may have some success as it is nearly impossible to get new SAAs out of Colts. They indicated they are affiliated with CT Shotgun, very high quality shotguns made in CT. I wish them success, the pricing is right in line with the MSRP from Colt on there SAA's if you could find one to buy! TB
  21. Sig is now in New Hampshire, large presence here in the US. Most likely the pistols will be manufactured by US labor, in the US, Make America Great Again! TB
