  1. I acquired a used Uberti '73 rifle in .357. It was made in 2019, and seems a little stiff in the following ways: 1. When the carrier is moving upward. It does move smoothly, but there's that extra "oomf" required on the lever to make it move upward. Almost like a 2-stage stroke, if that makes sense. Maybe the bolt extension is getting too much pressure from the hammer? 2. As the lever is closed and the bolt goes into battery. I can feel resistance, and hear a slight scraping sound. I don't know if its the bolt extension rubbing on the inside of the receiver and/or if its the bolt rubbing inside the carrier. I notice on the top of the bolt some of the blueing (or whatever finish) is beginning to wear off. Where do I need to look to smooth things up? I plan to put a set of whisper springs in eventually. I should also state I sanded the insides of the receiver side plates and removed the swirl marks from machining. Lots of FP-10 lube went on all the moving parts too.
  2. If I earn some ribbon or award, I'll accept it to avoid looking unappreciative...but in my heart I really only try to get clean match (never happens) or top 5% overall regardless if there's an award for that or not.
  3. Microsoft, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, Auto Warranty company, someone saying there's an arrest warrant out for me...all call me from time to time. If I'm bored, I'll sometime press whatever number it says to press to speak to a live person and then I mess with them. If they appear to have a middle eastern accent, I'll offend them in ways that it's probably frowned upon by these forums to repeat...
  4. Ok. Yeah, I was wanting to see if it was short stroked or not.
  5. Can you post a pic or 2 of the side with the lever in its fully opened position?
  6. Usually I can't remember the line by the time I'm ready to shoot, especially if its a long one or a quote from a movie I haven't seen (yet). By then, I've spotted and / or picked brass that I completely forgot what the line was, unless it's written on a sign off to the side somewhere. Otherwise I'll either say "I'm ready" , ask the TO "what's the line?" or will come up with something witty / funny on the spot related to the stage / match theme.
  7. Rustled up about 137 pieces of .32-20 brass and 48 pieces of .22 hornet brass. One of the .32-20's is an un-fired factory round. Collecting gold for a rifle. PM if ya need brass. $50 shipped.
  8. Mmmm...I need a '73. I just don't have that amount of gold saved up yet.
  9. If this were in .357 I'd be all over it. Good luck with your sale!
