  1. Hi, gotta start somewhere, make me a reasonable offer! Thanks, Preacherman
  2. I have a pair that the cylinder throats needed "fixed". I called Ruger a few years ago about making them right and they told me that they don't do that anymore. I sent them out to get reamed. Good now. Maybe they'll do them again. I'd call.
  3. While in the gun Hornady one shot (not the case lube). Spray, run it a little, wipe off inside. Quick and easy.
  4. Hi, make me a reasonable offer!! thanks, Rodeos! USFA 45LC 4 5/8" barrels $2,150? for the pair plus shipping. These are very nice, smooth actions, clean shiny bore/cylinders. Wood and stock black grip panels. These have been "polished" to get rid of the flat Rodeo finish to get an antiqued look with a patina. They've been shot and have some minor wear and nicks. With the original boxes and sleeves. Thanks for looking! Preacherman
  5. Yea!! yea, that's it, that's it, me too! You're right, they're just skeered of real shooters.
  6. So? Can ya shoot it gunfighter?
  7. Make me an offer, thanks! Very nice like new Taylors, Uberti, Top Break Russian (Schofield) 6.5" 45 L Colt. Consecutive serial numbers. Clean and shiny. new price at $1,975 plus shipping. Like new with a few minor marks. No boxes. Contact me with any other questions or needs. Thanks for looking!!
  8. Here are the grips that I did in the natural wood. I thinned them to mimic "gunfighter" style grips. A project for you!
  9. I got unfinished grips, thinned and finished them for mine. They turned out great! They came out light. I think the factory stains theirs. I can send pictures if you like.
  10. Yea buddy!! This has to be one of the best shoots that I have ever been at. A great time and also a great big thank you to all who worked and the owners for putting this on for us and for putting up with us. Look forward to being there again! Good shootin'!
  11. Henry makes a youth model with a shorter stock and 16" barrel. And Slater may have them, he did.
  12. Super!!! Good for you Yule! Lassister indeed does great work. 2 pair of Rugers for me and an '87. Good shootin'!
  13. 3/4 Oz of shot, I use 7 1/2 and 11g Extra Lite. You can use clays too. A light load that always knocks 'em down if you hit 'em. Started to use 3/4 Oz to save on shot. You'll get 76 more shells/bag!
  14. Just a thought, the Uberti stocks can be refinished and come out quite nice. The "red" is gone and the gloss. I have 2 and could send pictures if you like.
  15. I don't know? I use the Redding with a .430. and no problems. I've had problems with my 38-40s chambering my favorite Saeco bullet as it was hitting the rifling. Had to get the throats opened up and works fine. Funny, maybe the bullet design, a dirty die, crimping too hard or missing the groove and deforming the bullet. I've never encountered stuck bullets in a crimp die. Anyway, good reloading!
  16. On a side note I prefer the Redding Profile crimp die over the Lee factory crimp die for my 44-40 and 38-40. It makes a perfect crimp without overworking the case neck rim. I've used both. It is a separate step as seating and crimping never works out as good as you're still pushing/seating the bullet while it is being crimped. Use the largest bullet that will chamber. Mine will accept a .431, but like others have said the throats must be larger than the barrel groove or ultimately you will be shooting an undersize bullet. My Rugers and Ubertis are .429". I can shoot .430 in my '73 and '66. Good shootin'!
