  1. Sometimes Numrich Gun has parts but it’s iffy at best
  2. I measured the distance from my eye to the rear sight of my rifle and then to the front sight, when I went to have my shooting glasses made I told the doc I needed to get as clear sight as possible between those to points, he worked on it a bit and I ended up with a pretty clear ( not perfect ) sight picture for both my rifle and pistol, targets are a bit fuzzy but there big and I’m not shooting bullseye so it’s ok, these glasses are only for shooting because they were made for that perfect range my sights are at, worked out really great for me and I just carry my regular glasses in the cart for after shooting
  3. Careful if you throw your whole gun in to clean it, the first time I did this with the SS Vaqueros I couldn’t cock the hammers, open the loading gate or even push the ejector rods, everything was so squeaky clean there was no lubrication on anything, a light coat of lube fixed everything right up but I think if I had forced anything I probably would have done some metal damage, the other thing I have found is some aluminum gun finishes get soft and kind of gummy ( Ruger single six frames ) so be careful until you know what works, does a hell of a nice job on cleaning brass and is the only thing I have found that will make a SS gun look new after 500 rounds, even the cylinder ends will look new
  4. Not sure if you intended to say glass bed the barrel or you intended to say glass bed the action and free float the barrel, with laminate stocks these days the wood tends to be so full of binders they stay very stable and lots of times you can get away with just carving out your barrel channel so your barrel floats, perhaps some glass around the recoil lug area, laminate stocks are impressive stability wise
  5. Hey Dan be careful about using a 270, I’m NOT sure about Maine but in Vermont you MUST use 30 cal or above for moose, I know for a fact in Vt you loose your moose, rifle and license plus the fine if you use less than a 30 caliber rifle, Jason will know for sure
  6. Perhaps I can help, A good friend of mine runs Maine Whitetail Adventures and he has territories in both zone 4 and 8, Both he and his wife are liscenced Maine guides for Moose, bear, Deer, fishing and white water rafting, they also do grouse, they do both rifle and bow hunts, give him a call his name is Jason Lucarellie, phone is 207-265-6250 and the web sight is mainewhitetailadventures.com, Maine is Big and easy to get lost in if your thinking about a guide Jason has got some pretty good territory staked out and scouted, hope this helps
  7. I have tried to get parts from CZ 3 times now and all 3 times they said they would ship them right out but I never saw a single part ( they were springs) not sure what the problem is
  8. You can brass electroplate steel but first you usually have to copper plate it then apply the brass/nickel/gold ect ect ect to the copper plate, you can get a home plating kit but the plating is pretty thin and will wear thru with heavy use, I have had so-so luck getting the copper to stick well to steel it needs to be really clean and there is a chemical you can pre treat the steel with that is supposed to help, I bought my chemicals from caswellplating.com, if it’s just a one shot project it’s probably cheaper to send it out to be done, once you have the chemicals they are good for years and lots of plating, I did my brass grip frames on my uberti 1851 mason conversion in nickel and was very happy with the outcome
  9. Purdygear did the leather but I’m not sure if she is doing custom leather any longer
  10. That’s good to hear, she certainly has great talent when it comes to leather
  11. The leather was from a woman in Ga called Purdy Leather, she did amazing leather work but she has stopped doing custom holsters which is a great loss, I may have actually got the last couple of sets she made
  12. Not my main match guns but these are my favorites, the grips are Arizona 2 piece grips, not a nice as a one piece but Uberti screws are soft and I don’t like to remove them just to clean under the grips
  13. Larsen Pettifogger has a great set of instructions for fixing theses guns and most of the colt cap gun clones as well, great write up with pictures and my bet is he would be more than happy to share them with anyone here, there were a couple of items he tweaked that I never would have though of, I give his instructions a solid 5 stars
  14. I had that problem and a couple of more on my Uberti Mason conversion, when I took it apart and checked the machined slot that the hand rides in I could see it was rough as HELL to say the least, ( the hand wouldent move fully in the slot )horrible machining grooves in the metal, I took a small square file and a very small stone and carefully smoothed out the track the hand rides in and even polished up the sides of the hand and after that it worked slick, my best guess was it was actually locking up the cylinder and keeping the gun from cocking completely, hope this helps
  15. Add a +1 for the Mason 1851 conversions, I have a pair in .38 and even though they are not my main match guns they are my favorites, they just seem to point so well and when your shooting gunfighter there’s a feel about them that seems like they belong in your hands side by side spitting lead, I also added the magnatusk grips from Arizona grips and did a nickel electro plate over the brass grip frame, kind of wish I did silver now but I can do that in the future if need be
