  1. Past hour
  2. Carbon steel holds edge better than stainless. I like swept blade for skinning. Even a good blade I keep a steel to touch up during the cleaning and butchering. Also the carbide sharpener that all you do is pull knife through are a simple quick way to sharpen and do a good job.
  3. I have a pair of Ruger new model Vaqueros for sale. Both 4 3/4 inch barrels, stainless, wood grips, blackhawk hammers, jewel hammers and trigger guards, lightened springs and free spending cylinders. With boxes. $1200.00 + shipping offers accepted.
  4. Nothing special needs to be done. Just pump/cycle the action. The pump locks when the hammer is fully cocked.
  5. Many years ago Marlin made some pretty interesting rifles. Most were called bicycle rifles. Many were takedown with 12-14" barrels. Some came with a canvas gun bag specifically to carry the broke down rifle on a bicycle frame. Also some trapper models in 44WCF that were short and light. They also had models with threaded barrel for silencer. I suspect all of these are exempt due to being an original gun that was legal at the time - or some loophole like that.
  6. If you want to see a beauty, scroll down the page and look at the numerous photos of this engraved Colt Python. As of this writing, it has 30 bids & a little over 4 hours left in the auction. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/834816427
  7. In the pics it was just quick fuse and e matches, quick fuse is really fast burning powder on string enclosed in paper used with professional fireworks, I bet there is more to the story.
  8. Hi, my pistols are 38 and the rifle I'm planning to get is 45 colt. If the holster belt had 38 loops, i guess it would make sense to get 45 loops on the shotgun belt or bandolier (leaning towards the latter). I think so but just wanted to check here, first.

  10. @Loophole LaRue, SASS #51438, thanks for your input. I understand that you are responding from a lawyer's perspective, where the worst case must always be considered and countered with a legally ironclad response. I appreciate and see the logic in your reply. However, I still don't think, especially in this instance, the action on the part of Stoeger was warranted. I would consider it highly unlikely that they are unaware of the types of modifications commonly done to their firearms. I would also argue that there is, by now, a long and acceptable safety record of their firearms performing adequately with these modifications. If that doesn't offer them any legal backing, then ok, I can still understand that. I'm sure that they have tolerances they are required to reference (SAAMI specs?) which would be considered a legal standard, and that's fine, but this is still extremely poor customer service. Something more along the lines of what @Jabez Cowboy,SASS # 50129 described seems far more customer-friendly while still avoiding both legal responsibility for the allegedly unsafe firearm AND defacement of the customer's personal property. Had they permanently disabled the firearm, I would be causing a far greater ruckus. @Dusty Devil Dale, thanks as well for your input. I have to say though, I respectfully disagree. If I sent a firearm off to a gunsmith and I had little confidence in or knowledge of the actual state of the firearm, I can see accepting the judgment of the gunsmith regarding its integrity. Milsurps with wildly incorrect headspacing come to mind as a common occurrence of this. However, a known and reputable gunsmith had already modified my firearm and deemed it safe. Whom do I trust? Does Stoeger have some type of assumed superiority because it's their design? A flaw in their design and manufacturing is what caused my issue in the first place (stock fitment)! Also, as I mentioned above, the types of modifications done on my shotgun are extremely common in SASS and have been for years. Thousands of shotgun rounds have been put through very similarly modified firearms with few, if any, related serious mishaps. And again, it's not as if I made these modifications on my own as an amateur and decided to blast away in the presence of a crowd; everything was done by an established professional. I appreciate your approach to risk management, but this doesn't seem like an appropriate application.
  11. Bravo, TN Tombstone! So glad to know him and his Lady!
  12. i picked up a bench made skinning knife the other day. I have had their pocket knife for a couple of years and always sharp and retained the finish so I figured the skinning knife will do as good. my other brands kept getting dull.
  13. When the lever is full close carrier hangs up sometimes. Had a shell separate, shot another round before seeing the separated case. Case went in hard but ejected okay. Then the carrier started hanging. It is bone stock never been to a gunsmith as I can't hold still enough to need a gunsmith to speed me up. Arthritis for the last 30 years will do a number. If the lever was closed using to much force to seat the round in the chamber what parts would bend?
  14. hakkaa päälle first - then when you miss with the sword or don't make the goal in hockey it is Saatana Perkele - or Perkele perkele perkele...... :-) STL Suomi
  15. Thanks for the tip on Jacks Leather. I like the dual color and he seems to even be local to me (813 area code)
  16. My daughter started hunting a couple years ago, and i want to get her a good hunting/camp knife and a good skinning knife for Christmas.
  17. I thought it was hakkaa päälle that was the general purpose phrase.
