  1. I had that happen once and had to change to another email account because I never could get it to work right with the original account after it had worked for a couple of years. Never figured it out either just would not send to my other account anymore. ????
  2. That is probably a fast draw gun not part of SASS.
  3. If you would take a poll you would find that a majority of shooters would get an 1873. And most would not get a heavy / long barreled one.
  4. 22 hours ago, Flash said: Have a fellow SASS shooter that his Uberti started doing that. Never could get it to stop and finally had to change the barrel. That fixed it. The gunsmith that did the barrel swap said that his original chamber was oval instead of round. He tried to get it repaired under warranty but they would not do it because it was short stroked so if you try make sure you return it to original before you send it in. The first thing we determined was it was not the ammo because the ammo would shoot in all other rifles and none was sticking. Then we cleaned the hell out of the chamber using scrappers for carbon and everything we could think of but 1 or 2 out of 20 would stick after they were shot even after the cleaning. This rifle was just under warranty so it was sent back to Cimmeron but they refused to cover it under warranty because it had a short-stroke kit in it but they had originally agreed to change the barrel. He had them return the rifle and sent it to a local gunsmith that changed the barrel and his diagnosis was the chamber was not round. That is the story. Hope this info helps!

    97 win help

    For some reason I can't get the link to work even the one in the post above. If you have the same problem go to Youtube.com and just do a search for Winchester 1897 and it comes up in the list.
  7. The shape of the top of the carrier is what determines where the brass will go.
  8. But new rifle? Slowly close the bolt with a bullet and make sure the extractor easily goes over the rim. I had a rifle I worked on a year or so ago that the extractor would not go over the rim and would ride on top. Had to close the head space some for it to grab every time.
  9. May be the load is too weak or the flash hole is too small in the brass.
  10. The firing pin safety is to hopefully stop a slam fire out of battery event. I am sure you have seen someone try slamming their lever closed when the round does not go all the way in. Well when you do that the firing pin can hit the primer and set the round off out of battery. With the Miroku firing pin safety the firing pin will not go forward without the trigger being pulled. It is a wonderful thing but some don't like it because it may break. And that is the rest of the story!
  11. Dang! That is your problem. That area is suppose to be smooth.
  12. If the ammo works in other SAA pistols it is not the ammo, it is the gun that has a problem.
  13. Not saying this is your problem just want to point out at one time I had a USFA start locking up and everyone said it was primers backing out. The thing was the same ammo worked in all kinds of other SAA pistols with no issue. Chased the primer backing out for months trying to figure out what was going on because everyone I asked said that was what was going on. Well, it was not primers backing out. In fact primers always back out and then are reseated by recoil. What it turned out to be was the recoil plate had recessed just enough for the primer to catch on it. I was new to the sport at the time and everyone I asked never once said look to see what the primer is catching on for it to drag. Since then I always look to see what it is dragging on first because that is usually what is going on. Hope this helps!
