  1. Page 23 of handbook. Timer operator has authority to call procedurals, assisted by spotters.
  2. Fordyce, No, I shoot gunfighter with cartridges. For me cap and ball are strictly for plainsman and frontiersman. No P? You are assuming my brain would allow me to continue to hit my targets with the other gun, holster it safely, work out the issues I had with the first gun, finish shooting that and move on. Nope. Definitely a P. Next time I feel like adding a layer or two of difficulty I may try it. I'm sure it would be entertaining.
  3. Gunfighter with cap and ball while legal, would be difficult. I generally shoot gunfighter in main matches. I also have cap and ball revolvers and love to shoot plainsman matches and shoot matches in frontiersman. I love shooting the cap and ball revolvers. While legal, I would not want to shoot gunfighter with my cap and ball revolvers. Seems like at least 1/3 of the stages something goes wrong with a cap and ball, either the cylinder gets jammed from a cap falling off, the loading lever falls open, or something. The off hand is needed to resolve these issues. I would be in a pickle if I had a loaded revolver in my other hand at the same time.
  4. Just a thought on the caliber. I have two handi rifles, one in .357 and one in 45/70 that I use in plainsman matches. Those little .357/.38 special cartridges are really small to be loading from the belt into a single shot. While I love the .357 and its great fun to shoot, I am able to load much faster and smoother with the 45/70. If I am really concerned about getting a good time I will generally use the 45/70.
  5. I have had a couple of Marlins in 357 and 45 (still have one in 45) and currently have a couple of 73's (one Uberti, one Cimarron both in 357) . Marlins and 73's are both great rifles. I rarely have problems with either, but do have to work on the 73s a little more often than the Marlins. The Marlin can generally be had a little cheaper. I have worked on and slicked up both. In my opinion the 73 is a little easier to work on. I can get my 73's to run slicker and faster than the Marlins. If I were to have just one, I would keep my 73 (and I would take the Uberti over the Cimarron).
  6. Thanks. I know Coyote Cap or Lassiter could make it run really nice. I'm not planning on using this as a main match gun, just an occasional side match. Learning how it operates and the challenge of getting it to work is half the fun! If I can't get it to go after I've spent some time with it I'll send it off to one of them. The carrier comes up too high. It ejects nicely but allows a shell to come out of the magazine tube and slip under the carrier causing a jam. Looks like the right cartridge guide has been worn or ground down a bit, allowing this to happen. Again, thanks for all the info. Much appreciated.
  7. I picked up an Iver Johnson hammerless in 32 S&W for $125 a couple years ago. It was fairly easy to take apart to clean out (and oh was it dirty inside) and polish. Got it working real smooth and fast. I've won several side matches with it now. I'm a huge fan of the hammerless. Just seems to fun smoother than the hammered versions I have tried. Don't know if I just got a good one or if its the design.
  8. Thanks all. I will contact these folks. The carrier assembly looks to have a lot of wear, or possibly some grinding on it, and doesn't function correctly, so I am trying to replace it. The IAC carrier assembly looks slightly different than those shown on schematics for the parts that are available for Chiappas.
  9. I picked up a used IAC 87 as a project. I need to get some parts. Does anybody here know if IAC/Chiappa/Winchester parts are interchangeable?
  10. ElJuez: If you would take $700 shipped for your 1858's I will take them. PM me . thanks Bulldog Brown

      Sorry for the late response. I had a local offer and was waiting to see if it came through. Sorry, but the 1858's are no longer available. Thank you for the offer.
