Sir Charles deMouton-Black:
Here's the Canadian dealer in STARLINE brass.  I note they also sell .45 Cowboy Special brass.  (A good source of .455 Mk I cases by thinning the rims.)

Sir Charles deMouton-Black:
I really miss VTI Gunparts!  Too bad that US export regs have shut them off from their loyal customers. >:(

However all is not lost. :)

I stupidly mislaid a wedge from my UBERTI 1851 R-M.  A call to STOEGER CANADA, 905-436-9077, eventually got me to their parts desk.  I had a long chat with Peter, the parts manager.  They are stocking parts for Uberti revolvers as need arises.  They had the wedge for the '51 Navy which shows as a common part for the Open Tops and conversion revolvers so one is on its way.

Peter said that there has been more demand for Uberti parts recently.  I think that they didn't account for the Cap'nballers, OTs and R-Ms that came in to Canada before Stoeger Canada wrested control of the Uberti supply situation from dealers who were dealing with Uberti directly. They are becoming aware of how common they are (relatively speaking!) so I conclude that the parts supply situation should remain reliable.  I'm still not clear on the new firearm supply of Uberti products.  We still seem to be subject to the US demand creaming product off the top and leaving us with the scant remainder.

Here is a West Coast gunsmith for our sport;

Haggis

I believe that Wayne Wesser suffered a heart attack/stroke and is no longer in business. I spoke to him last year and he didn't sound well.
He referred me to Doc Rowland who is establishing a good rep in the trade.

You may be right as he hasn't responded to my email.
