Great news, Marshal! Congradulations! Cheesy  Mighty fine lookin' brace you've got there!

It has occured to me that your name is not on the USFA CSS list. Shall I add yours and Marshal'ette's (I know she's gonna be shootin' 'em and wanting a set of her own) to the list?


When I came out of the massage room, your CasCity guru.. Marshal Halloway..  was standing in the kitchen.. with his shorts on, white socks.. no shoes.. and his holsters and new guns strapped on... whistling the theme song of Clint Eastwoods, "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly ( believe me ... he was all 3)  Roll Eyes    Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy



Been there, done that, only with my old timey night shirt, boots and hat. Whatta sight!! Shocked


I'm surprised that the guns have any ivory left on the grips. Undecided
 He has handled them and twirled them and played Cowboys and Indians here all evening..
 

Ya got to get the"feel" of 'em. Takes a while, don't cha know? Wink


 ***sighhhhhhhhhhhh***.... Is it ever going to be MY TURN to be the Cowboy and get to fast draw and play with the guns??
 And why do you ALWAYS get to be Marshal Dillon and I ALWAYS have to be Miss Kitty. Angry[/b]


You could try Sundance & Etta Place.  Grin

Rusty,
That's a mighty fine outfit you've got there, even if one of them is a Ruger. Grin (nod nod wink wink) Holsters and gunbelt are gorgeous and really compliment those pistols!

Bill is a great guy to work with.  I have several cases that he has made for me and he has always been more than accomodating.

The leftward drift if this group isn't the fault of USFA. It is sighted dead on at 25 yards. I have
a tendency to push the trigger when Ive been away from SAAs a week or so. The load is
7.5 Unique and the generic cast rnfp sold by most commercial casters.  Velocity is Mid 800s.

Beautiful pictures, Mec!  That first shot looks like it should belong on the USFA web site.  What kind of camera are you using?

Well, It kind of is.  Not too long after they started making all the parts domestically, I ordered this revolver and wrote it up for gunblast.com.  USFA links to that article on their Pre-War window.

I had been shooting first and second gen colts a friend owns and the occasional Uberti and finally decided I needed a really good one for myself.  The choice was either a second generation colt or a USFA. The only thing Ive done to it is to replace the trigger bolt spring with a trapper wire. this reduced the pull to a few ounces under two pounds and this, along with finallly figuring out proper trigger finger placement, helps me overcome my left/low shooting tendencies. At first, I didn' much appreciate the wider front sight on the USFA (wider than late first and second generation colts but it works well for me.  I have no complaints about this revolver except that the shiney color case treatment sometimes flairs the sight picture for me in bright sunlight.  I can live with that.

Mike,
NOW I remember!  that was a good article you wrote.
Changing out the springs is all I have ever done to any of my USFA's.  I use the Wolff reduced power main spring and the Heinie wire trigger/bolt spring.
