  3. My friend uses #10 Remington caps as do I. Before I changed the nipples I never had a problem with caps falling off. I had shortened the old nipples a bit so that when seated the caps where we're on a fatter section of the nipples. I never had time to do these as I got the nipples the day before the match. I use a short plastic rod to set the caps. I do occasionally have a spent cap fall off,usually between my hand and the grip,not a fun experience.
  4. He also pointed out that a lot of conversion cylinder must be taken out to be loaded so what is the difference?
  5. He doesn't like using a capper because of sometime they fall off, his reason is he can squeeze the caps and put them on with confidence that they will stay on. I did for one match by hand with the cylinder in the gun and it was a pain. And that was on new nipples, the match before I had at least one cap per gun come off per stage with the new nipples. I had replaced them because the other were becoming deformed. They had been on the cylinders for about 12 years
  6. This was brought up in a discussion with a friend recently and I could not give him an answer that I knew was absolutely correct. I have looked through the Shooters Handbook and RO1 mamual,did it very quickly at work so I may have missed the answer to the following question. Is a shooter allowed to remove the charged cylinders from his C&B revolver at the loading table to cap them by hand the put them back into the revolver?
  7. I have not really kept up with the value of these lately so I need some advice what they are selling for now. I have a Marlin 1894 Cowboy Limited in 45 Colt, 24" octagon barrel, purchased new in 1999. This was my wife main match rifle for about 4 years. Because of her job as a nurse she worked a lot of weekends so she never shoots but 5 or 6 times a year, she no loner shoots . The guns has had no modifications and I prefer my 1873"s and 1866's so I have decided to sell it. It does have some cart dings but is other wise in very good condition. Wondering what they are current sellin
