  1. Set up for 6 rounds.... not a Norinco....not sure what series,but can find out Joe Cross....this is Donk's 97
  2. A dear friend has a 97 with a problem I don't understand.....when loaded with 6 rounds for a Wild Bunch shoot the only way he can run the slide bar to chamber a round is to cock the hammer first, which he must do for the first 4 rounds and then he can run the gun normally on the last two rounds. Any suggestions my eagle eyed 97 guru's? Bugler PS. Who is doing 97 work these days? Seems so many of the tried and proven have retired.
  3. Are you wanting to use a 60mm or 80 mm objective lens? Randy
  4. Here in Billings during sight in days where I am a Chief Range Officer, the Vortex Razor dominates......see an occasional Nikon, Leica and Swarovski. I personally use the old Kowa TSN-1 angled 25x eyepiece, have used it since 1989 when I shot NRA Service Rifle....still a fabulous scope. Bugler
  5. NCIC is the stolen firearm data base used in law enforcement
  6. Also in Billings, Montana Law Dog hat company.....fabulous gentleman and a big time supporter of or SASS matches!! Randy
  7. In 1971 or so we bought my dad a Navy Arms replica of the Yellowboy in .38 special...........fast forward to last summer when the rifle slid off the bench and broke the rear sight. Anyone have an idea as to what dove tail Navy Arms used on these......I believe most, if not all dimensions were metric. The sight seems to have a much shorter distance from the dovetail to the back of the receiver. I have some Winchester 94 and Marlin sights that are too long. Is this known as a short shank sight? Where can I purchase another? Thanks to ALL!!! Bugler
  8. I have read about Civil War soldiers putting candle wax on the caps after being seated but not charged. Bugler
  9. Not this year, I have a badly injured leg.....was moving my new gun safe in I fell backward snapping all three tendons from the top of the femur, while my left foot was snagged under the axle of the cart. The surgeon was able to surgically re-attach all three without any cadaver tissue.........all of my summer events are put on hold while I recover. Randy
  10. Dave, Have used 6 gr. of Unique for many years with great success! Might work for you as well..... Randy
  11. Would have been honored to sound TAPS on his behalf......I do so 4-5 times a week here in Billings Montana. Bugler
  12. Aerosol sight black works well for me....spray it on before the match and will often go the entire match...if not....over to the safe area and re-spray. Have also used my carbide sight black lamp (Gunsmoke) with real carbide...left over from my NRA Service rifle days....gets things REALLY black and is non reflective as well....folks DO look at you however! Bugler
  13. Thanks Marauder!! Didn't know Milburn Stone sang with Harry James......know all about Ken Curtis and his singing in the Sons of the Pioneers and with Dorsey.....what a voice when he was singing....not all the hillbilly ridge runner voice when he was in character. Bugler
  14. In 197 there was an episode called New Doctor in Town in which Dr. Chapman (Pat Hingle) was replacing Dr. Adams ( milburn Stone)......my real question is what happened that Milburn Stone was not in a number of episodes and then returned? Was there a medical issue? A contract issue? etc.... 2nd question...how many episodes was Harrison Ford in?...I know of 2 but there are probably more.... Bugler
  15. Sometimes it is about the challenge in front of you.....I hope you exceed your wildest expectations! Man made it at one time, so another one can do the same.... Keep us posted on your progress. Bugler
  16. Koolaid... That is exactly the SxS I have been using for the last year.....If Hoss doesn't borrow it you are welcome to try mine out. It is also a Johnny Meadows gun.. Bugler
  17. Have used One Shot since it first came out.....totally satisfied with the results!!! Bugler
  18. Another reason that I love Montana!!! Bugler

    Spotting scope

    One of the best values for the money is the Konus 20x60x80 spotting scope. Many of my smallbore and NRA High power rifle shooters are VERY pleased with the results. You can see bullet holes (.30 caliber) at 200 yards if you are using the black bull. In the white I can see .22 holes..... Might work out for you as well. Bugler
  20. Am going to use my Uberti '73 in 44-40 next year on a friends ranch.....seems to have a good number of mule deer living in his alfalfa fields....usually less than 100 yards.... Bugler
  21. Resembles an old Fekker scope to me........ Bugler
  22. Anyone know how many episodes had both Dennis Weaver AND Ken Curtis in them? I have seen about 5 but I think there are more than that.... The supporting stable of cast members was extraordinary.....I liked the nickname Sgt. Holly ( Forrest Tucker) had for Marshall Dillon....Marshall Big Fist! Bugler
  23. Wow! Does everyone have a Brinnell hardness tester? I have NO idea as to what the real hardness level is on my own cast bullets...... I have been using smelted isotope balls (whatever hardness that is) in my cap & ball revolvers and my all of my 44-40 revolvers and rifles with GREAT success. Anyone know what hardness isotope balls are? Bugler
  24. Just finished watching Gunsmoke "Snow Train" on Tvland and have to say that I think it is without a doubt in MY mind the best episode EVER. How about the rest of you? Bugler
