  1. Yes, I really like the Sharptail. I've already had some work done by a local smith but I wanted to see if there was anybody who had a lot of experience (besides LH) that could really make it as slick as it can be. I agree that the mechanical triggers are a little stout and I am wondering if there is a fine balance between making them lighter to reset without going disabling them.
  2. Does anybody know of any cowboy gunsmiths that have experience slicking up a CZ Sharptail? I know Longhunter sells them slicked up new but I'm not sure he is working on any that weren't purchased from him. Plus I was wanting to see what my options are. I would appreciate any leads or experience you might provide.
  3. A little undersized for the mosquitoes in Minnesota but could work if you made a head shot.
  4. I'm brand new to CAS and I bought a Miroku 73 to get started, but I am very interested in picking up a Lightning some day. I will probably never be a super fast shooter and they sure look like a lot of fun.
  5. It seems like the Uberti 1873’s are the most popular rifles in the game. Does anyone use a Miroku made Winchester Short Rifle? Any information on how the shoot out of the box?
  6. Yeah I only have about 25 rounds through mine. If the cocking springs lighten up with time it will be perfect.
  7. I’m just getting into CAS and I found a CZ Sharptail that I had slicked up. Great little gun but it is very stiff out of the box. The only thing that is still a little stiff is the cocking springs. The smith I used took off a coil but said that as the much as could be done while making sure it would still fire reliably. My understanding was that the SBGW springs were not the same as the cocking springs. Did your springs lighten up on over time?
  8. For those looking to transfer money directly and instantly I highly recommend using Venmo. I used this with a pard from the forum to purchase a Ruger Vaquero. He had the payment within seconds while we were on the phone. I’m not affiliated in any way I just think it’s a great service.
  9. Thank you all for your responses and explanations. Looking at the pictures I thought that might be the case but wanted to consult people more knowledgeable on the subject. It looks like I will have a choice to make.
  10. I'm looking into getting my first rifle for SASS and it seems like they don't make the configuration I would prefer. I would like a Uberti 1873 with a round barrel profile (carbine) and a pistol grip stock. Do anyone know if a pistol grip stock is interchangeable with the straight stock that comes on carbine models? Thanks, Dave

  12. Thanks Graybeard. I'm pretty sure it takes 2 1/2 inch shells which limits supply even further. Fortunately, I was able to fine a 12 gauge CZ Sharptail that will be my main match shotgun. I will be keeping my eyes open for availability of some appropriate ammo as supplies improve.
  13. I just finished cleaning up a nice one my dad gave me. Manufacturing date is 1905. I had planned on using it for CAS but it’s a 16 gauge and finding ammo was just not going to happen any time in the near future. I’m just getting started but I’ll bring it out someday and put it through it’s paces.
  14. Thanks Sam. Bucky sent me a PM and we're figuring it out. Thanks for looking out for a new guy. The dies were the last piece of the puzzle to get me shooting in my first match.
