I've had to ask some of the spotters to please not stand so close when I've shot, especially when they called misses because they didn't "see" the target hit. The clang was just a coincidence. The match directions stated clearly that a miss was only a miss if you could physically tell it had missed. 1% doubt and it was supposed to be called a hit.

That's just another way the nitro guys discourage BP shooters.

I always stay at the Four Seasons in Mt. Vernon.  Sometimes referred to as the "Texas Annex". Great people, family owned motel with continental breakfast included. I just talked to Jean there and she says they still have a lot of rooms available.

I purchased mine about 6-7 years ago, and the cartouche on the grip is stamped, not engraved, so the later production numbers must have changed to laser. The color of the grip on mine is also that Italian red color finish with high gloss coating. Serial # 206XX.

The finish on yours look a lot better than the "plastic coated" one from earlier production.

Mine also was fairly gritty when cocking it, something I had never encountered with other clones. After a thorough cleaning, inside and out, it works much better.

I got mine from Buffalo Arms.

I had to go and open the gun safe to try that. The first '73 I grabbed was my Winchester. No forward movement. Then I tried a Uberti '73 made in 1988. About 3/8" of movement. Next one a couple of years old. About 3/8" movement. So I would say that is normal for a Uberti. wM1

Are you talking about one of the "New" Winchesters?

Woke up to steady Cold drizzle... low 50's,  Cleared out to pretty blue sky the wind came up steady a 15-20 mph
Wind chill kept it feeling in the upper 50's We'll see 40 in the Morning and winds increase to 25 MPH.

Back at Mecum again tomorrow, eye candy abounds....

Cartridge is supposedly a granulation between 2f & 3F....So it should work ok. I tried a few cans of cartridge grade when it was introduced, and it was "okay", but don't recall charging my 1860's with it.... I had a case of something else (?) at the time and was using that stuff up in my C&B pistols and muzzleloaders. I'm not real choosy when it comes to black powder for C&B, pistols loads and general cowboy shooting, the formula of BP is the same for any breed, You move up the ladder incrementally with the more costly powders and will see some improvements in velocity & reduced fouling, but these will be small percentages - to be used when worthwhile.
That said, I've used the following in 44 Colt & Remington Armys with satisfactory results:
King Powder Co. 3F
Dupont 2F, 3F
Goex 2F, 3F, 4F
Elephant 2F, 3F, 4F
Black Diamond 2F, 3F
Kik 2F, 3F
Schuetzen 2F, 3F
Pyrodex RS, P
I used fairly light charges with the 4F powder....not my first choice in powder, but was adequate for the purpose of 5-10 yd cowboy shooting. Always seat projectiles firmly on the powder for best results.

I'm one of the more "notorious" BP shooters in the area, and as such friends tip me off when miscellaneous black powder and minor accessories are no longer wanted in someone's home. Once or twice I've even found a box of cool "stuff" sitting at my doorstep. I assure folks I will dispose of the powder, primers, etc in a safe manner... and it seems to ease their minds greatly.

(Doing my best to take in unwanted BP)
