Are you still looking for a set?
The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Trouble

So, loading up a few of the Barnes 450 JFN, AOL is 2.25. Feed and function perfectly, so far. I got some 330g bullets from Montana Bullet works I'm going to try also, with BP. I got a set of CH4D dies now so I'm fiddling with the settings. I will be using the RCBS bullet seat die to crimp alone.

I am reading Sixguns by Elmer Keith right now. He speaks of switching to the S&W N frame due to the SAA not being strong enough to handle the heavier loads that led to the 44 Magnum. If you want to shoot .44 Specials and .44 Magnums in a SAA, get a Ruger Vaquero [old model] built in .44 Magnum.
The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Tang sight
« Last post by King Medallion on Today at 03:54:26 PM »
Sent an email to Lyman:

I have an Uberti 1876 I am looking to mount a #2 tang sight. Which model should I get? Thank you.

Unfortunately, we do not have any No 2 sights that would fit the 1876.

So I wrote back:
Thanks for the answer. The screw spacing's for the 76 are the same as the 86 and 94 I'm told, so wouldn't one made for an 86 work on a 76?

Will report the answer

Was a light frost here. Got some things done today, feeling better.   
The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: Cleaning BP guns
« Last post by Gabriel Law on Today at 01:04:31 PM »
Water at room temperature cleans black powder fouling better than anything, including hot water.  Allowing the heat from the very hot water to dry your steel will induce flash rusting, particularly in the bore which has no protection from finish or case hardening.  Flash rust is iron cancer.  It gets worse and worse until the bore is ruined.  There are going to be subscribers who will say I'm full of hooey - they've been doing it that way since.....And if that way suits you, go ahead - it's your rifle/pistol/shotgun.  But I've seen some fine guns destroyed by their owners flushing with very hot water.
Use water that is comfortable to your skin.  Dry the metal after cleaning with towels and patches - the bore with a tight fitting jag and patches.  Oil with a water displacing fluid like WD 40 for short term - for long term storage, use a rust preventative oil.
Remove the oil prior to shooting.
This comes from a geezer who has been shooting black powder for over fifty years.
Gunsmithing / Re: Will an Uberti 1851 barrel fit an ASM frame?

I'm somewhat dubious that it would fit.  But even if it would, you would need a new ejector as well since they are different style.  It would cost a lot less to cut the ASM barrel.

63 here right now, on the second cup of Joe. Getting ready to put some pics up of a 38 Super for trade.
Gunsmithing / Will an Uberti 1851 barrel fit an ASM frame?

Okay, I have a .38 Open Top conversion built by ASM coming. It has a long barrel on it. I like the 5 1/2" better, so I was wondering if the Uberti barrel would fit or just have the current barrel shortened and a new front sight installed?

Thanks for the info guys.  I am trading it to a young fellow, a gun trading buddy.  I put a value on it less than the lowest gunbroker sold price that I could find.   

Cool gun but I have others that I shoot more.
