  1. For Sale - Uberti/Taylor Deluxe (Pistol Grip with checkering stock) 1873. Asking $1,800.00 plus shipping from my FFL to yours. Has the full Jimmy Spurs race action with short stroke - see invoice below. Brought as a back up, became 3rd in-line for use. Does have the minor cart dings - shown in pictures. Full disclosure - When I received the rifle - found two anomalies in the barrel - one about 6" down and the second about 12" down. When running a tight cleaning patch you can feel a change in the riffling. It was too late to send back to factory after all the custom work. Doe
  2. Looking for a Uberti Trapper (20” barrel) in 45 Colt. Cash or trade will trade a Uberti/Taylor 1873, 20” barrel, 357 cal, pistol grip stock, butt cover, lever wrap, full race action job including short stroke by Jimmy Spurs. At the time was a$2200 purchase. Was a 2nd in line backup, very little use. Thanks
  3. Based on past experience with a Uberti 73 rifle, all will have some issues due to the fact that the bolt and carrier used are designed for the 38/357 cartridges. My solution was a little smoothing on the chamber bottom. Almost like creating a ramp. Installing a one piece firing pin. This also improved alignment. Bullet shape will also make a difference. Have not experienced any extract issues (except for the usual problem with black powder fouling getting under the extractor).
  4. Took 3 to 4 times to accept order, also would not process unless you picked a shipping expense. Will see how that plays out once the order is billed.
  5. For a black powder revolver, Bill Kelly is a good source. He does the VTI/Krist Konverter work. Good turnaround time, when I did a conversion, about 2 Weeks.
  6. Dan, You want to contact Boomstick Arms, Jason Wilmer. I had A pair done about 3 years ago. Revolver, octagon barrel, and short stroke, $2430 out the door for both.
  7. Didn't realize posting picture would be so pain full. Is there some delay on the number of posts?
  8. I will get some pictures out later tonight. If you thought the tab on the Uberti was bad, wait tell you see this one. Just a thin post.
  9. I picked up one the other day from GunBroker. The 38 spec with the 20in round barrel. Haven't had time to actually fire it, did some dry firing with dummy rounds. Cycling was smooth, but not like a well turned gun from one of the top smiths supporting SASS shooters. Actually smoother, than my stock Miroku 73. What is interesting the caliber is marked 38 special but the carrier is the same length as the 73 - .357 rifle. Rounds loaded to 1.57 inches cycled much better than the 38 spec length of 1.42 inches. Sorry no pictures - compared to the non-shootable 150th year commemorative rifle
  10. Mr. Pettifogger, Nice design - looks very similar to the light weight level safety springs being made for the Uberti. Maybe one of the entrepreneur gunsmiths will start making these for the Winchester. In the mean time looks like owners of the Winchester 73 are on their own. What size wire spring did you use?
  11. Can you provide cost and contact information Mr. Lipowicz? Thanks
