Uberti, Pietta and other SAA Clones / Re: Donor Pistol

...PS -- Pietta does not sell or offer a 44 Spec cylinder.

Good luck with your project.

Yeah, that's why he got the .357 so the cylinder can be rechambered.  Who knows, everybody has their own reasons for doing whatever.  If 44 Spcl just couldn't be found otherwise, I could see it being more of an option.  I would just buy a Cimarron 44 Spcl Model P.  However, they chamber that in the Pre-War frame only, so it would be a 3-click gun with a medallion grip.  Both of which can be changed, of course.  But I'd be more likely to buy the Old Model P in 44-40 and add the 44 spcl cylinder.  But I already have enough 44 Spcls, 2 Colts, a conversion, a Thunderer and a '66.  Actually, I picked up a used 44-40 cylinder that fits perfectly in my Thunderer so it is dual caliber now also.

Back to the OP, if the barrel on your donor gun is in good shape, you could probably sell it to recoup some of your cost.

Had a nice spring day here, mid 70's, blue sky with a few puffy clouds and a slight breeze. It rained across the river just north of us, but nothing here. It can stay like this all year round as far as I'm concerned.

Maybe you got the 38 or 357 at a really good price that you went for it first but ...  I am guessing that by the time you buy a Pietta barrel (at $165 or $182 or $264 / length dependent) have it and the cylinder cut and all fitted properly, ... you could have bought a Uberti Cimarron Model P 44/40 or a Stoeger Uberti 44/40 with its' 0.429 barrel and then bought a Uberti 44 Spec cylinder (it comes with a new cylinder bushing) for $132+ and had that fitted by a smith or do it yourself (maybe), all possibly for less than the Pietta project will end up being.

Also, you would have a pistol conversion of 44/40 and 44Spec.  Rather than a one caliber revolver.  You see I like both calibers.

This was only a thought or an option to your desire.

Good luck with your project.

USFA CSS / Re: Rodeo II deal?

 :) Let us Understand a little  ;)

Once you get past the exterior, ALL of the internals of USFA are the same.  Action parts, Springs, everything same same.  With an Ainsworth or Nettleton, you're laying out a lot of folding green for some CCH and a Cartouche on the stock.  Not an authentic Colt Ainsworth or Nettleton, just a replicant.  So, for me, hoisting a single sample example that will likely live in the dusty back of some safe, as opposed to a pair of real nice .44 shooters??  That wouldn't even be debatable.

At two grand for the pair (initial offering) I'da snapped 'em up right then and there and I'm not even a USFA aficionado.  Let the seller whine about his missed price - gee, but Oh Well.
I have an older Rossi that the firing pin broke. I understood that the newer Rossi 1892 firing pins were different so I got one and filed it to fit. It works but would feel better if I had a factory one. Any source for firing pins for the older Rossi from maybe early 80’s? Appreciate any help.
Just in on a trade. A like new 1873 Trapper 357 Magnum (holds 10 38 Spl) 16” barrel, blued frame, case hardened lever, hammer, and trigger. Previous owner installed Pioneer Gun Works action spring kit an $87 value. There is a small blemish/tool mark on the bottom left screw hole. Very minor but want to mention it.
$1099 plus shipping to your FFL.

After he did some research, he had upped the price to $3K or $3.5K, I'm not sure.  He had them at the Texas State match last weekend, not sure if he sold them or not.
Man, heckuva missed opportunity.
