SASS Wire Vet

SASS Wire Vet (1/1)



  1. Nice vest, always wanted a Duke vest, but it has 3 too many X's to fit me.
  2. The wax has to be slightly warm. It is the degrees of "slightly" that is the key problem. But once you get the details worked out is isn't too difficult, if you don't need more than a few hundred. Me, I bought a Lubrisizer and never looked back.
  3. Except most 44-40 guns have .429 barrels, same as 44-40. I reamed out both my 44 Special '72 Opentops to 44-40 and use .429 bullets with no problems. I rented a reamer that was made to SAAMI specs and it barely even touched in the neck area. It worked so well that I reamed out my 4 other Uberti 44-40 revolvers so that they would all be the same and not be so finicky about ammo.
  4. They are probably the newer XR-3 grips going by the chart I was just looking at. Slightly smaller than XR3-Red. Just compared my ROA to the kids' 3 screw Single Sixes, looks like they might fit except the locating pin hole is a bit higher.
  5. I can do that, for 25.00 each. I originally did that for a friend who hung 6 of them on his cart when he shot C&B guns. He always had a pair ready to go that way. Black color is no problem. I have 2 of the doubles on my cart as my wife and daughter like to take park the guns when not shooting.
  6. Pauldoe; I called him this afternoon. He hasn't shot a match in 8 years but he "isn't ready to give up cowboy yet", he said. I tried.
  7. 1 or a pair? My brother has a pair, and I was just telling him last week now is a good time to sell. He hasn't shot SASS for at least 6 years. Where in the Bay Area are you?
  8. I have a Large Flat Rate box full of once fired ribbed Estate hulls, about 425 in there, if you think they will work for you. 25.00 shipped.
  9. MY wife has in the past shot my 44-40 through her 45 Colt rifle. I eliminated to problem by switching her to C45S brass. Accuracy was off a bit, but the brass did not split. More than once at the public range I have found 9mm brass that the neck was blown out to 40 caliber. I assume it was shot in a 40 S&W caliber gun. And 44 Russian shoot fine through a 44-40 pistol, at least with my BP loaded rounds. With high pressure Smokeless, who knows.
  10. Cleaning the bottom the first time can take a while as it is lacquer coated to keep it shiny. At least mine was. Otherwise Brasso works as good as anything.
