  1. Those Blackhawk hammers.  Do you have to have the  firing pin/wedge welded onto hammer or do you buy the like that?

  2. I can be a pretty loyal customer and have a good amount of latitude with "humanity" as it is. For a number of years I have been buying my bullets for CAS at a company that I will not name here where I understood I was paying an almost $30 premium per 1,000 bullets, but given all was good I did not change until recently. My last order from this company had a very high percentage of badly misshapen bullets and the lube had pretty much cracked and had fallen off most of them. I sent an e mail just to let them know, very nice and not asking for anything. After a week or two I had no response so I called. I asked if they saw my e mail and they said they did. I simply said I wanted them to be aware of the issue I had. The response. "We're human, you want more bullets." Nope, thank you. So I order two thousand bullets from Rim Rock and I screw up and order 1,000 of the wrong bullets. I call them to see if I could return them and not only do they immediately send out the bullets I should have ordered but also send me a prepaid USPS mailer to send them back. Saving me not only $30 per thousand, but also the return postage. Also a very pleasant phone conversation with them. How can you beat that! It doesn't take much to keep me happy, but these guys went above and beyond. I'll be ordering many more bullets from theses guys.
  3. A while back I called Taylor's & Co. to see if I could pick up a pair of Smoke Wagons in 44-40 at Winter Range hoping to take advantage of discounts they provide there. Since I am from Connecticut they could not let me take possession at Winter Range but we're more than happy to ship them to me immediately with the match discount. After testing out the pair one of the pistols shot consistently 4 to 5 inches low at 21 feet. Both grouped very tight, it was just the elevation on one of them. I called to discuss and they took the pistol in and turned it around in a week. Shot the pistol today. Problem solved. From sale to after sale service these folks are great. Easy to communicate with, quick return e mails and phone calls. I can't say enough about my great experience. Refreshing.
  4. My experience with Universal was that with loads at the high end of the range were fine, but when lowered I was getting a lot of un burnt powder all over me and some funny sounding shots. It was explained that in large volume cases like the 45 Colt light charges will level out below the primer giving inconsistent ignition. I have since switched to Trail Boss when I shoot smokeless. Love that Universal for my 28 ga.
  5. Since you wet tumble, make it easy on yourself by not using too much Dawn or Lemishine. When I first started wet tumbling I thought more was better. I also experienced tarnish after. If I use a half teaspoon of Lemishine and Dawn that is a lot. After separating pins I just pat them dry with a towel and let them sit out for a few days to dry inside. I have had no problems with tarnish since reducing the amount of cleaner to a very small amount. I shoot black powder and APP and have no trouble with like new looking brass.

    Spotting scope

    Try this out. On sale at less than $150. I have one and with a few different power eye pieces you can cover even small calibers out to 600 yards. The tripod is not sturdy enough, especially at high magnification but the scope is great and also great for looking at the moon and other planets and stars with the kids. Celestron 90mm Maksutov Spotting Scope Telescope Package 52268-OP - Celestron 90 Spotting Scope w/Tripod 93606
  7. Raging, Let me know what you come up with. I could use some help😜
  8. I have used the classifieds for pistols, rifles, leather, reloading equipment, long range rifles, Gunsmithing and hard to find parts. My approach is always to ask for what I need knowing that many of us have guns and gear hanging around we have long moved on from. Have almost always had more than fair pricing. Hey, sometimes when you want something of quality that is hard to find, you pay the price. Worth every Penney. Only once did I have an issue with something that was not even functioning and not as represented. I just accepted that it can happen, paid for repairs and moved on. For the most part everyone has been great.
  9. www.thehighroad.org Just opened it up. I am on it all the time.
  10. It's a free sight. Lots of good info. Just sign up with e mail and password.
  11. Pit Bull I would suggest you also post on The High Road forum. Under black powder section there is a Ruger Old Army club. Check it out. You should find some interest there.
  12. My check is in the mail. Glad to see this great shoot back on the schedule!
  13. You all know how to shame a guy. Here I am sitting with 23 rounds of 44-40 and 20 12 ga bp rounds after a pretty full year of shooting and I am watching you guys knocking out shells at a pace faster than our increasing national debt. With Fire & Ice and Winter Range just down the road I figured I better get going. I hate to load by the way. Primers, powder, wads, shotgun hulls and brass coming out my ears. So I load up 500 12 ga BP for starters and then prepare for some 44-40 and damn, only about 125 bullets left. Oh well, that's the best excuse to put off more reloading until the postman arrives aggravated with a heavy load of lead. Have a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and enjoy whatever holiday you celebrate.
  14. Try Shotgunworld.com reloading forum I posted and sold 3 9000's in short order for same price.
