I just now realized that this forum is meant to be for "real" Colts and not to include "copies of colts". I hope I haven't offended anyone by asking advise about the problem with my friends "Italian clone" that is not a "real" Colt.
I'm a Remington shooter ( Italian Replicas) and hand not visited here but a few times for a "look-see". It seemed the logical place to go for asistance with my problem.
I do shoot "real" Winchester '73s made by Winchester, but can't presently afford any "real" Remington made New Model Army pistols . . . though I do crave one and may one day have one or two of them.
