Howdy Shrapnel,

Darn! That rolling block looks beautiful and shoots as good as it looks.

 :) Aw Right Aw Ready !!! ;)

It ain't as if Mike's head ain't big enough as was, Yunz (Pittsburghease) just hadda make it bigger huh!!  You expect he should still fit thru the Shop Door??  Hah!!

Tiz a Righteous FINE looking conversion ain't it you betcha.  I'm sure you have all read Mike's comments about his experience with the 45 ACP Kirst Konverter and I must confirm he is not spreading any fluff.  The 45 ACP Conversion is the Beez Kneez.  Fear not with loading.  The Kirst cylinder is made from very stern stuff indeed and will take pressure levels what make yer eyes water and yer shooting hand smart.

I also have around 1000 ACP cases left over from a bunch of Bulls Eye shooting couple ah Lustrum ago.  Loadin 'em up you betcha.

Considering that the Spencer (and later) carbines had sling rings on the left side, probably not. I did notice in the one view that the cartridges seemed to have "holes" in the back end. Might be for some new-fangled central-fire priming caps, maybe?  ;) Doubt that will ever catch on, hmmm? In point of fact, if you are going to use such things, you better use bullets with a flat point, say, at least .210" on the meplat. Otherwise, you might set off the primer in the cartridge ahead. Such a thing is not a good idea situation in one of those Henry Repeating rifles, with the tubular magazine under the barrel. But in a Spencer, with the magazine in the stock, right next to the shooter's face, it could ruin your whole day!  :'(

Interesting vid, nice to see the concept in motion. I'm not sure I've ever seen a carbine with a sling swivel on the barrel band? Was this ever done in the time?

I have one in 40-50 Sharps Bottleneck. It is a special order gun with a bunch of features. The wood is XXX and has horn fore end cap, set trigger tang peep sight and Beeches front sight. It shoots very well and I hope to get it shot next year more than I did this year.

The target is 200 yards with the lower three shots fired first, then a sight adjustment and 2 more shots. This gun does shoot well…

Maybe there were a couple of screwdrivers and a file or two left over from those days.  Voila!  Original machinery!  ;D
Uberti, Pietta and other SAA Clones / Re: Cimarron's Teddy Roosevelt Colt
« Last post by Abilene on Yesterday at 10:49:52 PM »
The first thing I did when I got a Pietta was slap a Uberti base pin in it!  It hasn't even been shortened, but is much easier to install than the Pietta pin.  This one was a spare I had, but if I had to buy one I'd buy the shorter Uberti pin that goes to the current 3-clicker guns.

I asked Mike Harvey once if there was any chance of Pietta changing to an Uberti-style base pin with the grooves all the way around, but Pietta says "No Way".  I'm guessing they would have to pass a bunch more tests over again.
So Colt lied? When the 2nd generation was introduced all the gun writers claimed they were colt made with the original machinery.

Well, somebody lied  ;D

gun writers make stuff up all the tiime, just like some of the marketing weenies that feed the "straight poop"  to them.
