  1. Yes, I forgot to mention this. If you don't trim that spring, it will be difficult to push in the 9th and 10th rounds through the loading gate.
  2. Yup, bought several guns from them. The best Cowboy store in Virginia.
  3. J. M. Ross in Bulls Gap Tennessee is my guy. 713-703-1915. Fine quality and prompt service.
  4. Billy the Avenger has a video out there which shows how to slick up a Marlin 94cb. Marauder has one but I haven't seen his. This is how I did mine. Watched the video and followed the instructions. Basically, you buy a lighter spring kit from one of the many SASS vendors out there. Then, switch out the lever plunger spring, the hammer spring, change the firing pin to a one piece firing pin. Remove the plastic follower and replace with a metal one. After the gun is apart, sand down all moving parts as shown on the video with # 6 sandpaper, lightly oil and then put back together. Then, work the action back and forth and fire the gun a lot. Then your all set.
  5. In 2 years of shooting at various places, my favorite so far is the Cavalier Cowboys annual club match in Montpelier, Virginia. Great bunch of people, great stages, live entertainment Saturday night and good food.
  6. I also shoot Ruger New Vaquero, .357/.38. Wolf's web site says the standard Ruger hammer springs are 23 lb. Someone on here, Lumpy I think, said that is out of date. In any case, I took out the stock springs and installed Wolf Springs 17 lb. They do feel lighter than what I had. I still use the transfer bar. I don't need a super light spring and I don't want any misfires from light hammer strikes. So 17 lb works just fine for me.
  7. Hi, I'm curious, who was the original Driftwood Johnson?

    1. Driftwood Johnson, SASS #38283

      Driftwood Johnson, SASS #38283

      I am the original Driftwood Johnson.


      That was just a joke. It was a tintype photo I had done a few years ago at the Great Nor'Easter. I'm not really that old, the photo just makes me look old.

  8. I use Hi-tek bullets from Missouri Bullet Company. They are a red brown color. I am happy with them. Are they the same or different than powder coated bullets?
  9. I just got a Uberti 73, "Codymatic", 20 inch octagonal barrel, in .44-40. Really like it. Shot about 90 rounds at the range yesterday. The action was nice and smooth. Will shoot it at my match this Saturday in Charlottesville, VA.
