  1. 1860 Henry Modification A leather lace-on “heat shield” wrap around the barrel and magazine tube of the 1860 Henry rifle has been approved by the Range Operations Committee. The proposed modification is a reasonable solution to a well-known safety concern regarding the use of the 1860 Henry rifle in SASS competition. As many shooters choosing to use that model also shoot in Black Powder categories, the lack of a forearm can be problematic as the barrel heats up. That can lead to possible safety issues in maintaining control of the firearm while shooting. Advising the use of a glove while shooting one discounts the fact that a glove can be a hindrance when shooting revolvers.
  2. The SASS Range Operations Committee has APPROVED the modification of Remington NMA/1858 revolvers to open up the cap/nipple recess areas of the cylinders to accommodate the use all types of cappers (e.g. Ted Cash "snail" capper). This modification has been done for YEARS ... there are numerous YouTube videos showing how to perform the mod, including from well-known CAS shooters...but it is currently NOT on the list of approved modifications. The modification will be added to the list of approved mods in the next edition of the SASS Shooters Handbook. Here are a couple of quotes from various discussion boards: "Remington cylinders do not permit the Ted Cash Snail Capper to work, unless one takes a Dremel Tool, and opens up the sides of the cap recess.” "The modifying of the cylinder to accommodate a capper is done by simply removing all of the nipples, then taking a Dremel with a 1/4" grinding wheel and just grinding away until your capper fits where the nipple sits.” FWIW - The Ruger Old Army revolver cylinder is manufactured such that a "snail" capper can be used without modification.
