  1. I replaced the spring yesterday and gun is back working. Considering coil spring and plunger if/when it breaks again. Thanks to all who replied, I really appreciate it !!!!
  2. Thanks for all the information. I have an assortment of hand springs on the way thanks to Mike at Goons Gun Works. Going to try and keep the original hand since timing is pretty good. Will let y'all know how it turns out.
  3. Thanks Palewolf, have request in to see if in stock.
  4. I have a pre-transfer bar 1873 Pietta "Liberty" in .45 Colt. The hand is the kind that has a flat leaf spring attached and the spring is broken. I have been unsuccessful so far in finding a replacement from Pietta or Numrich. I admit my search as not been exhaustive but I thought I would ask for help first. Does anyone know where I can find a hand or have suggestions how to get this gun back up and running. Information stamped on the barrel reads: MODEL S.A. 1873 CAL . 45 COLT CAT. 1456 (bottom of barrel), Liberty 1873 KBI-HBG,PA (side of barrel) and the usual Pietta markings on the top and frame. SN E02169 Thanks in advance for any and all help !! Graywolf
  5. I shoot Holy Black in .44-40 and with a homemade lube wad under the bullet, no problems over 10 stages with rifle.
  6. Collet rings with set screws to replace the clips. A very elegant and easy fix. I like it
  7. Warden, I prime mine using the Lee auto-prime II and Federal primers on the press and have not had any problems. Perhaps an issue with the antique capper?
  8. I bought the RCBS die set and am not greatly impressed. The resizing ring that screws into the die body has not had to do any work on my Magtech shells. The shaft that holds the decapping die is held in place by clips and they bent and came off the shaft so I am using the shaft to manually decap over the hole in my bench anvil. Not really worth the price, but that's just my opinion. I also have found that 1/2 " wads blow a hole in the pattern just about the size of 6-8" knockdowns. I put together a 1 oz square load , nitro card, shot and overshot card sealed with waterglass. Out of my Stoeger Coach, it holds a nice tight pattern at our distances which is the only thing I use them for.
  9. Waco, do you like Louis L'Amore book? I have a bunch I will bring to Grant if you want them.
