Now, I offer you an alternative, discount the sale another $50, which still won't cover the cost of repairs, and we both walk away unhappy.

Three times I offered return and refund, three times you rejected that. I see your game.

I am not going to waste any more time with you.

And again, I am not going to waste any more time with you.

And yet here we are. Again.

Pejorative, as in painting the revolver's condition in the worst light I could. Savvy?

If you were aiming for the worst light possible, you failed miserably to hit the mark there. For if that was truly your ambition you would have disclosed the damaged arbor. What you described was mostly cosmetic, not structural or functional.

One thing to keep in mind about foreign-made 7x57 guns: The headspace dimensions are longer than U.S. When resizing U.S.-made brass, back off your sizing die until the brass will chamber with just a little "feel". If resized to U.S. specs, and fired again in the longer chambers, brass life will be reduced significantly, and you might even get head separations! Don't know how the brass will initially expand with light loads of Trailboss. Just saying...

Yes, admittedly it is about me. My opinion is that you felt that I was an easy mark, and attempted to take me. You obviously know little about percussion revolvers. So, now you thrash about to muddy the waters to hide the fact that you are a scammer. Now, you want me to return the damage item, for which I will be expected to pay for its return. Yes, I have a return address, but is it truly your address, or an abandon building? You get the item back and use it for another project. I see no refund, while you shout I sent it to him. And you come out on top. Sounds crazy, check with the US Postal Inspectors see what they have to say.

Now, I offer you an alternative, discount the sale another $50, which still won't cover the cost of repairs, and we both walk away unhappy.

You have disassembled this piece at least twice as evidenced by your photos. I fail to see how you could not notice such a major defect.

Already admitted to being a dumbass. At this point, I think this is more about you than the pistol.

For the Peanut Gallery
Anyone out there insulted I refer to you as such? If so, feel free to chime in below.
Because usually it's me in the Peanut Gallery watching such exchanges.

Wedge goes in the arbor, tighten up the bolt and it functioned for me.

I'll admit to being a dumbass not noticing the wiggle. What I won't abid [abide] by is claiming I was deceitful.

FOR THE PEANUT GALLERY

In my first Private Message response -

1) I pointed out that my description of this pistol was a pejorative [ 50cent word meant to confuse and distract from the issue at hand.] as I could make it, and not trying to hide any faults.

2) Had I know, I would have gleefully added ' the CYLINDER/ARBOR PIN wiggles like a dashboard hulu doll while driving down a washed out washboard dirt road.'

3) That he has my mailing address and if not satisfied, could return it.

So you folks are provided an entertainment at no extra charge.

pe·jo·ra·tive
/pəˈjôrədiv/
adjective
adjective: pejorative

    "permissiveness is used almost universally as a pejorative term"

You have disassembled this piece at least twice as evidenced by your photos. I fail to see how you could not notice such a major defect.

BTW, PEANUT GALLERY is often used as a pejorative phrase. "A group of people who criticize someone, often by focusing on insignificant details." I fail to see how you can find failing to disclose a damaged arbor as  an insignificant detail.

*Shrug*

You want to make this something painful when it didn't have to be, so be it.

For the Peanut Gallery

As stated, I offered to take it back and refund when he first told me about it - a full hour before he decided to post online.

I also accepted a lower offer at his request, so he could match his Nepal Sharps.

Note that I at least knew to check the cylinder gap.

According to the ballistician I talked to, the Trail Boss load is as follows.  Figure out where the base of the bullet will be in the case.  Fill the case with Trail Boss to that line.  Weigh the charge in the case.  That's the load.  Compressing it won't hurt you,  but it certainly doesn't help anything, either.  Of course you can chronograph the load, but I really doubt you'll have anything to worry about in that regard.  I'd recommend a gas check bullet.  It's probably just me, but I've never had much luck with plain base bullets in anything .30 and below.
