  1. Like it or not, the horse is out of the barn. You can do your own search but a massive number of people are out this weekend hitting any recreational spot available. And they are not a bit concerned about social distance orders. Pictures of the Osage Beach at Lake of the Ozarks show thousands of people packed tightly in one small area. And it's only going to escalate through the summer.
  2. The virus in one form or another is a fact of nature and will be with us until some cataclysmic event destroy earth . This pandemic is something we (they) have created.
  3. I don't know about anyone else but I'll be glad when we're past this.
  4. When I look at the primers in your cases, the deformation looks like what I saw in the Smoke Wagons that has a crater around the diring pin hole. When I blow up the picture in your original post, it looks like there is a crater circling the diring pin hole. Clean and inspect this area and see if you have a crater like in the picture below. Here is a picture of one of the ceses. If that's what you find, you're screwed.
  5. I shot video of taking my new old Remington Lifter apart. Some of the steps are unique to this gun design but most of the process is typical of most doubles. I have some video of the stock repairs and clean-up. And I've not shot it yet. I'll get around to putting up another video or two.
  6. Waste of time. I have a Uberti made in early 70s that had the same problem. Every Uberti we have has had this happen. I've gotten to add to my clean and inspect routine to feel the area around firing pin hole for burr and hone off any I find. The problem seems to come up less often as time goes on.
  7. Crater around firing pin hole in Smokewagons. Cost $200 ea to repair. After TIG weld. Pietta has bushing in recoil shield like Colt.
  8. I've done that also. I has a rod with polished, rounded end that I'd gently drop against the hole until burr was hammered back in.
  9. P.S. While you have the hone out, polish the recoil shield some and make a ramp of that ledge on opposite side of loading gate.
  10. Situation normal. Just hone off the burr. Maybe get some snap caps to help keep firing pin from slamming into bottom of hole.
  11. In the beginning, testing for COVID-19 was very limited. I'm assuming used on those with symptoms and or gravely ill. But now Missouri has ramped up to testing some 5,000 a day. So with a much bigger net, they are finding more active cases. Still the numbers of those infected are very small. Our son the nurse in Minneapolis area is back to work after a two week furlough. He says they are testing people with no symptoms. He, questioned the directors of the reasoning for doing this as they wouldn't do it for other illnesses. He was told COVID-19 was different. He asked how is it different. He got no answer. (Just my guess, they get paid extra to do it.) The nut didn't fall far from the tree - he says, If you're sick, stay home. If you can't breath, get to the ER. I don't know his source but he said the test is only 70% accurate.
  12. Shooting an old side lever double W. Richards - probably 1870 era.
