We have officially taken this thread too seriously!

I know, but if we get into the science it scares the hell out of a lot of people and I get to use some of that knowledge I have stored up in my head.   Grin

I know it's been years since I got to mention the Second Law of Thermodynamics, remember the First Law of Thermodynamics says even a shot that misses is not wasted because we can not destroy the energy but it just takes a different form.    Grin

And you realize that with some string, a long infantry rifle and the canal, we do have a fun photo opportunity.    Wink

I also will miss GOTOW. However to get detailed info on specific firearms I have found that it is surprising how many
Books have been printed on specific firearms. I use interlibrary loan as it is too expensive to buy all he books out there.
As a recent example I became interested in Civil War Gwyn & Campbell carbines. There was a dedicated book to these
And my local library received one on loan from the Air Force Academy library at no cost to me.
Maybe someone will pick up GOTOW - it was always useful for product reviews and vendor information.

Gentlemen, after a couple years of health, job issues, dealing with my father's estate, and moving fro Texas to Idaho I am back in the swing of things (kind of sort of).

So I have my business now" F Troop Company LLC. You can find me on facebook. Two exciting things are in the works. 1. I have sent alot of original 1870-1900 era items to What Price Glory. We will see what is doable and what is not. More details when I know how things are moving along.  Part of all this is that if you haven't seen WPG's latest offerings you need to go check them out. Right now he has CORRECT M1897 leggings for only $45! Perfect for you Rough Riders out there! He also has M1874 Type II and Type III clothing bags in stock. These were also used as haversacks in the Spanish American War believe it or not! In addition he offers M1878 Haversacks and Blanket Bags! He really is keen on branching out into earlier time periods. He also just got in stock USMC 1898 Lee cartridge Belts, suspenders, and CORRECT USMC Span-Am shirts (these are NOT the same as the 1883 Army shirt)

2. I have been looking at private collections to reproduce some very rare 1870's era leather items. However my knowledgeable leather guy also had a few of life's "moments" the last couple years. Hopefully this is the year we can move forward!

Check out WPG and I'll try and keep you updated on my end of things as well!

Best, Chris!
F Troop

The best advise I could ever give anyone about lube is just bite the bullet and order SPG !

I have wasted so much time, money and good ingredients. There is NOTHING sold under ANY name that will even compare to SPG.

I have had fair success with many commercial and homemade lubes...but not one of them will do it all like SPG. Just so nice to work with and it preforms Wink

Pan lubing with it is really makes it shine.

I certainly agree, Coffinmaker.  I found the little things fascinating… making the bolt, her method of aligning the chambers with the bore, etc.  Obviously an extremely talented woman.  It will be fun to see the finished product.
One thing I really liked was her solution to the hand spring problem.  She use a wire spring attached to the hand.  Wire springs tend to outlast flat springs.  Her design would allow for a much easier hand spring replacement, should it become necessary.

Small 1/4 inch drive impact driver.  You will probably also find sever other screws that were installed by "Bongo" the Uberti Gorilla.
Once the everly tight screws have been removed for the first time, hardened screws are not needed so song as YOU don't over tighten
them and use fitted, hollow ground screwdrivers.

As an advance example, just wait until you try to remove the lever side spring screws for the first time.
