  1. I'm no good with FB. See if this works. They are giving it a rating of EF3. 160 mph wind.
  2. There are a lot of pictures of damage in Jefferson City on Facebook. It looks like the worst damage was in a relatively short patch. A lot of older buildings heavily damaged. Rooftops off. Trees down. Some walls blown out. Lots of windows broken, etc. But not complete devastation like Joplin. I haven't heard of any damage on the north side of the river - the side we live on. We live some 25 miles north of Jefferson City and only got 1/2" of rain. I've checked with Doc Hurd who lives in Jefferson City area and he's ok.
  3. How about a cartridge conversion unit with very clever safety system? Would be great in 32 S&W.
  4. Jefferson City is about 25 miles south of us. Waiting for reports to come in. Probably lots of other damage in path.
  5. Are you successful with roll crimping plastic hulls with an antique roll crimper? I use a BPI tool in drill press.
  6. I've modified a few steps but essentially come out the same. I trim the hulls with the same dowel and knife method but recently bought a pair of $1.88 "gripper" gloves that reallly make turning the hulls much easier.
  7. You think Bill Ruger may have seen this gun?
  8. You can easily cock both hammers of a CZ-USA by using the T-bone method of sweeping your left hand over the top and cocking the hammers while using the left thumb to break the top lever. Here is a hull test I made that shows me using this method. Keep in mind I'm a 60 second stage shooter.
  9. The Cimarron 1878 (commonly called the TTN) is a crude copy of the Colt 1878. Here pictured with an original Colt. The CZ-USA is not a reproduction of a Colt TTN. It's just a classic hammer double. It's the one gun I shoot right out of the box. All it needed was limbering up by opening and closing a few hundred times and shooting it some.
  10. CZ-USA, Grace Kelly. TTN, Phyllis Dillard.
  11. Could be... Maybe check to see if hammers are rebounding to safty notch. Examine primers in fired hulls to see if they look excessively deep or marks where firing pins plowed out. Check firing pins to see if they have mushroomed or otherwise sticking. I seem to recall someone selling hardened replacement firing pins for these guns.
  12. Here I'm shooting a Cimmeron 1878 taken right out of the box and shooting Remington Gun Club 1oz loads.
  13. I have 2 Marlin 1894s in 32WCF and one Winchester 1892 in 32WCF. All have a magazine tube diameter appropriate for the caliber. But then again, they were made over a hundred years ago. All the Uberti 1873s use a large magazine tube? Wouldn't you think they are making enough in the small calibers to justify a small tube?
