  1. '63 vintage Colt commercial model. I am looking at both Remington and SA as a back-up pistol though.
  2. In my NVs, 14lb springs resulted in light strikes (Federal Primers) 15lbs work fine.
  3. I have found the folks on 1911addicts.com to be friendly and honest. If you take detailed pictures and include as much information as possible I would be glad to ask over there for you.
  4. Nice, I do believe I will get some of those.
  5. Such sweet looking leather! Sure looking forward to my waxed canvas cart sleeve as well.
  6. Oh well, I have a nice custom SS I would have liked to have used, but I think I'll mess with an 1849 pocket model instead
  7. Saw one on GI last night when I was poking around, short barrel though: https://www.gunsinternational.com/guns-for-sale-online/revolvers/-32-revolvers/uberti-single-action-army-32-wcf-pr45033-.cfm?gun_id=101263783
  8. I assume a Single Six would be ruled out of the pocket pistol category as being a: "Model ā€œPā€ Colts and clones"
  9. Hey CK, I will take the #9 pants. Message heading your way. ~ Al
  10. A a new shooter, I hope you don't bail. I always enjoy our local matches more when seasoned shooters are there. I got into SASS totally by accident, but boy I'm having fun. I have no illusions about beating any of our top shooters, I just like shooting cowboy guns and hanging around with other folks that feel the same way.
  11. I bought my Cody-Matic for the simple reason I live in a place with no phones and he answered e-mails promptly. I have had zero issues (knocks on wood) with the rifle and even for a slow poke like me the difference between the '73 and the Rossi '92 I started with is staggering. I suspect you will be happy with any of the folks mentioned, but that's my 2 cents.
  12. Well, I liked my Lucas so much I decided to get another. I wanted something with a bit more brim, and darker since my '73 likes to deposit dirty brass up on top of my head. I consulted with Mizz Grizz (Joy) and ended up with a customized Southwestern style. They agreed to iron the front and rear pencil curl and give it some dip to the brim. Living where I do, I have access to a lot of locally made native american art work, and the concho hatband was made by a local Navajo craftsman (the buckle in my profile pic was made by a local Zuni). I tried my hand at steam shaping the felt and perfectly fit the hat to my head. I can't say enough good about Hats by Grizz.
