  1. Hey Drifter, I'll take the new/reloader deal you have offered and we can work out the shipping charges. Will handle rest of details by PM. Thank you very much for the generous offer. I think it will work well for me. OO
  2. Hello Drifter, I'm a new cowboy shooter - SASS #108129 - seriously considering reloading so your gear interests me. To load 38/357, I think will just require another set of dies. Trying to think of any additional items I'd need to buy to get started with your press set up. Do you have any idea how much shipping would be to Louisiana, zip 70124. Thanks, OO
  3. I'm signed up....working at least a few hours per day from 17th through 22nd. First time, so I'm excited, expecting to see and learn a lot. OO
  4. Sure 'nuff, it does seem to be soft. I have a replacement trigger coming.....wish I knew how to harden it. OO
  5. Bailey Creek, thanks. I didn't realize that Numrich Gun Parts would match up parts if I send the old ones...makes sense that they could. Good to know. Also didn't realize the EMF Great Western is the same as my Hawes/Sauer Western Marshall. I do have a lead on the parts for my gun, but if it doesn't work out, I'll check into the Great Western; other good Colt clones with the 4 click hammer set up may be possibilities, too. Thanks again. OO
  6. Hi Misty, left you a phone message this afternoon; think it was after going home time for you. I'd like to explore helping out at EOT. I'm a new SASS member and that would be a great way to see things up close and personal. I will be in Salt Lake City the first part of June for my daughters wedding. My wife and a friend are flying to the wedding but I'm going to drive and have a little cross-country trip. Had already considered stopping by EOT for a day or so to see all the goings-on. There is no reason that I could not spend several days helping out - IF my novice status wouldn't interfere with my doing what needs to be done. Not as spry as I was 50 years ago, but still get around pretty well. (not as well as I need to shooting CAS stages, but I plan for that to get better). May be better for us to to talk on the phone; I left my number. OO
  7. Coffinmaker, Goody, Fast Enuff - thank you all for your feedback. Looking at a Uberti, Pietta to modify might be an option. I did look at the Numrich large frame schematic, couldn't determine that the hammer and trigger combination would work for me, because of hole diameters in hammer and trigger, and pin diameter on the hand...and replacement hand is not available. If I do have to, I'll get whatever seems closest and be prepared to modify to fit. Goody, you may well be my salvation...thank you very much. PM sent. And thanks to all of you for helping. OO
  8. Gentlemen, thank you for your replies. I am looking for a gunsmith who could do the repair, rebuild. Its been pointed out to me that I could easily spend more than the gun is worth. I won't shoot the gun the way it is, but if worst came to worst, I might attempt the trigger filing and hardening myself. Springfield, if you were doing the job yourself would it require special equipment for heating, quenching, tempering? There are videos online that provide the basic steps. I know a special fixture would be required to get the right angle on the trigger. Thanks again to both of you. I really appreciate the feedback. OO
  9. It started when I bought a Hawes/Sauer Western Marshall at a local club sale day. Continued with a second one from Gunbroker, shot my first event with them this past weekend. I really like the guns in spite of their shortcomings...long hammer stroke, recessed cylinders (using my home made dowel rod) , etc. One of the guns has a problem with very light trigger pull; afraid it's the premature hammer, trigger wear that I've read about. (I think I can hear the chorus singing "been there, done that"). I'm including a set of pictures showing hammer and trigger wear surfaces. For reference, the pistol in a 357 mag, serial 8496/3...what I think is referred to as the large frame model....the hammer pivot hole measures .222 in, trigger hole .169. hand pivot/hole .077. Two questions - hopefully the pictures show enough detail to help answer them - is there enough material on the end of the trigger for me to file a new flat surface? - is there a recommended source if its determined that I need a new hammer and trigger? Thanks for any suggestions/advice. OO
  10. Giving this a bump to see if anything may have changed in terms of availability since I posted in January. I do need another one to shoot for the next few weeks. Thanks
  11. Thanks Rufus, Margarita. I have to take a pass on this one....on to next buyer. OO
  12. HI Charlie, PM and PayPal yesterday; appreciate the "pay it forward". I will do the same.
  13. SASS number 108129, shot first event last Saturday (need lots of practice) with borrowed leather. Please let me know PayPal info by pm. Thanks again.
