  1. Check out Cabelas. I bought a couple of Hunter holsters for about $30 a pop. It's about as cheap as they get. Sam Sackett
  2. Dagnabbit! You made me smile. Ruined a perfectly bad day! Thanks San Sackett
  3. Not sure that Unique will work very well for light loads. I think 22 grains in a 12 ga 1oz load will run around 1200 fps. Win LN/LR is a couple hundred fps slower than that. Even the 22 grain load runs pretty dirty, and if you reduce powder it will get even dirtier. Most books I have looked at list Unique for 1200 fps plus, and loads of 1 1/8 or 1 1/4 oz. Maybe someone knows better? Hopefully?.. If you can come up with a faster powder such as Clays or Red Dot, you can load 13 to 14 grains with 3/4 oz of shot. I use those loads and think they may be a little lighter than the Win Ln/LR. San Sackett
  4. I use the old standby .. Saddle Soap. Easily available and easy to apply. Refresh as needed. My leathers are black and have not faded, so I don’t know if it will help with the coloration, but it does seem to refresh the leather pretty well. Sam Sackett
  5. PM sent. I’ll take both sets of bullets for $75 shipped. Sam Sackett
  6. Check Nate Kiowa Jones at Stevesgunz.com. https://stevesgunz.com/sight-package/ looks like he can make up what you want. Sam Sackett
  7. Scarlet, I’m sorry for your loss and feel a bit of your pain. I know I trust the cow folks I have had the pleasure to shoot with. It saddens me that someone would steal an item from the Lost & Found. If it’s yours, take it. If it’s not KEEP YOUR DAMN HANDS OFF OF IT, Hopefully the skunk will see these posts and feel guilty enough to send it back to you. I’m truly sorry for your loss, Sam Sackett
  8. Darn! I wish you were closer. I sure could put those to good use. You’ll find a buyer quick. Sam Sackett
  9. I replaced my New Vaquero original springs with Wolfe 19/30 springs. Have had no issues with FTF with any brand of primers. Have used CCI, Winchester and Federal. They all went bang except for a couple when I dragged my thumb on the hammer. That I can’t blame on the primer. Sam Sackett
  10. I have to load mine at 1.530” for my Interarms Rossi. That is usually right at the top of the lube groove. Only issue with this is that the crimp doesn’t hold a lot of pressure on the bullet, so most powders will give a dirty burn resulting in sooty cases. No problem with setback as long as the crimp tucks into the lube groove a tad. Chootem, Sam Sackett
  11. I have one of the early Interarms imported Rossi 92’s. It’s my main match gun. It’s very slick and I have had no issues once I found the right cartridge length and bullet noses. It really likes the Lee 125 RF and also does well with a TC bullet. Keep the OAL at around 1.535” and it doesn’t care whether it’s 38 or 357 brass. Just load to that length and crimp where it may. Usually right at the top of the lube groove. I like it so much I bought a Browning B92 to keep it company. I like the old Rossi better though. Sam Sackett
  12. Chop it small enough to fit in the pot, melt down, flux and skim a couple of times, pour into molds. Sam Sackett
  13. I agree. This isn’t the first Stoger that wasn’t inletted enough. This allows the recoil forces to hit there, instead of inside on the anchor lug. Relieve the inletting and get those forces moved back inside where they belong. Once that is done and the stock is bedded into the anchor lug, glue and pin the cracked area. Should last a long time.
