Trying to revitalize my first saa clone. In 1990 I took an entire summers worth of mowing money and had my dad get me a single action.
I Was 15 and already had a 357 blackhawk but I wanted a colt inspired gun.
What I could afford was a emf new dakota. I was never so proud as to pick it out of the box. 51/2" 45 colt, still my favorite combo.
I had 100 factory rounds and dies and reloaded using dads 45 acp round nose bullets.
I loved that gun and every week would fire 100 rounds and reload them before the next week.
Have not shot her in years. Moved on to more accurate clones and finally colts. Pulled her out of the safe and wanted to get her going again.
I forgot it but apparently I put it away because of a broken trigger and bolt spring. Also have some buggery screws( I was a kid)
I know asm guns are not the best so I dont need that lecture.
This Is pure sentiment
Does anyone making copies now have screws that will match up in a asm new dakota
Please dont tell me vti or numerich because they are out.
What about a trigger and bolt spring, any one better fit or so I just need to try
