  1. SOLD This is a bunch of springs that I picked up over the years.  Some are new, some are used.  I think some are for percussion cap guns, some for Ubertis, some for Colts.

    Plus a couple of Hienie springs.

    $25 shipped.



  2. Hi Tully,

    I really miss the Chabot shoots. 

    It has the factory nipples.  I put some Treso nipples on it and the height isn't right.  If there is a cap under the hammer the gun locked up, so I put the originals back on.  They seem to work okay.

    The cap rake is a 5/32 brass screw set in blue threadlock and filed to fit.  Haven't had a cap jam since.

    Last of the guns I'm selling.


    Brazilian Stoeger has been slicked up and the auto-safety disabled.  I got it used about 18 years ago.  Was a back-up gun, mostly with black powder.  20" barrels.  Fore stock split during a stage and was field glued back together (80 grain loads will do that).  Lots of gun cart and handling dings.  Not pretty, but functions fine.

    $375 shipped.

  4. Original 1889 vintage, cut down barrel, bore too big to cut threads for a choke.

    The favorite local shotgun targets were 2" and 3" steel pipes that you had to knock over.

    60 grains wouldn't do it. Ended up with 83 grains black with a modified shot cup to keep it together. Worked great and everybody on the posse felt the boom!

  5. Im going to try both .

    But I think the shorter shell with the roll crimp,

    Will make things go a little smoother.


    That depends on your loads. I found out that 83 grains of black power and 1-1/8 oz of shot jarred the gun so much that a roll crimped shot card would pop out. Ever try to work your '87 with a receiver full of #8 shot?

  6. If it is an original make sure you have a screw driver with you and check your screws. I shot one for a few years, and almost lost a couple of the screws from the receiver.

    I did lose a screw from an original about 12 years ago. It was between stages, and I spent the entire lunch break covering the ground with a borrowed 5 lb magnet (thanks Fiddletown). Finally found it in time to shoot the afternoon stages.

    Original screws were custom fit, off the shelf ones need to be fitted. The new guns have standard screws (I know this because I'm a slow learner).
