DT,

Don knows of what he speaks, for certain. I've got a couple PP molds that work good shooting dirty in my sharps 45 2.1, that I think will work good in the 45-75. Be glad to send you some to try, if you want, let me know.
                   Sarge  thanks for the generous offer , I have so many loads waiting for test now and not sure when I will get to them .  When I get closer and  start testing the PP bullets I may take you up on the offer . Have you tried any PP loads in a 76 ? ,,,DT

That is typical weather there in the fall. Could be 100 and sunny tomorrow.

Trinity is right when it comes to flight navigation True North is considered 360 not 0.  When I got my Private pilotís license back in the days before computers took over the instrument panel (1971), it was common practice to set your Directional Gyro to a heading matching the runway number.  27 was True West, 18 was True South, 36 was True North.  This meant your direction of flight could be off by plus or minus 10 degrees.  Even then in all the years Iíve flown, Iíve never gotten lost.

Trinity, enjoy your flight training!  Thereís nothing like the feeling of freedom that flying brings to you. 
PS let us know how your instructor lets you know itís time for you to do a few take offs and landings on your own.


I'd wondered how many other pilots were on here. Smiley. My first solo is supposed to be in mid to late October, but that depends on weather and fleet maintenance.  The school has 5 planes that I'm able to fly (we fly Piper Archers), but they've all been having maintenance issues.  One had a broken propeller, and another a broken piston.  Then another had the flaps way oversped (max flaps is 102kn.  The pilot deployed full flaps at 130kn), so it's down for two weeks.   
I'm scheduled to fly later this afternoon, but weather isn't looking like it wants to cooperate.  On the note...

We're currently sitting at 45 degrees, with 12mph winds and low clouds/rain.  We were forecast for some of the "white stuff" last night, but they changed their minds around 8 o'clock.  So we just had 38 and rainy all night.

Looks like it could be or has been recognized as a potential problem.

I'm glad that in the case of my friend, it didn't come to light in a Coroner's inquest.

OD#3, nice looking revolver!!  If you want to keep it a "stock" shooter and obviously don't mind some massaging, I would (at minimum) polish the left side of the hand (after breaking the edge all the way around) and thining (considerably) the bolt side of the combo spring. It seems they also like the historic Italian design of wide bolt spring and equal trigger spring. The correct spring should be wide trigger/narrow bolt. 2-3 lbs is all that's needed on the bolt (saves a lot of wear and helps lighten the hammer draw very much!). Obviously, polishing the cam surface would help as well (= more energy for punching primers).

I would also think about a bolt block as well since it is a non-invasive addition but is so important to a precision action. Of course, I'd do more, but that's just me (it's a shooter for crying out loud!! ).  A 3 lb (or slightly less) hammer draw with a 2 1/2- 3 lb trigger pull  and an action stop makes for an ultimate "fun gun"!!

Just a couple ideas.
Thanks for the video.

Mike

La De Da De Da .......

Oh .... Hi  Cheesy    It's me again.  Shocked

Here is a real simple thing.  Understanding that nothing is absolutely fool proof.  Uberti no longer supports any parts for the Bolt/Extension rod(s) that are retained by the tiny little cross pins.  Should you need parts, you must buy a "KIT" that contains a redesigned bolt, a new firing pin and return spring and a redesigned Extension Rod.

The "KIT" bolt is milled for a rocker plate, retained by the link pivot pin in the back of the bolt.  The extension rod is also milled to accept the rocker plate.  Very Very secure.  The "KIT" retails for about 100 Bucks.  No doe, just Bucks.  Contact VTI Gunparts.

I mentioned on here that I'd received serial #US 54 the other day.  To sum things up, my overall impression is that these are VERY well-built single actions.  They're better than any late-model Colt I've seen in the last 10 years and right up there with the best USFA guns.

I can post some pics later, but I've been busy editing, rendering, and uploading my Youtube review of it.  I published the video this morning, and I uploaded it at 1080@60fps resolution for good closeup views. 

This is a long video, because I filmed it right after I returned from the gunshop with it, and it is my first close examination of it filmed in real-time as I inspect and disassemble it.
