STORM / How accurate?
« Last post by willy on Today at 06:51:23 PM »
Was wondering about the accuracy of the colt open top revolvers.
I consider 2” groups as accurate for me at 25 yards with a handgun .
I can do this from a bench rest with adjuster sites S&W revolvers.
With my Uberti and ASM copies of the SAA the groups open up to 3-4”
I have two Uberti 1875 Remingtons that both shoot 2” groups right along with my best S&W revolvers.

I also have a Uberti 1851 36 cal that I tweaked the sights to get it to hit poa with poi amd it to will shoot 2”-3” grouos!

So I was wondering how accurate the open tops are in 44 or 45 calibers.

What can be expected out of them.
I would be happy if they could group under 4 “ at 25 yards.

Pioneer Gunworks are really good folks.  Measure your head space between the cartridge base and breach face of the Bolt with a tapered thickness gauge.  Then Call Pioneer and let them know the dimension and they can make you a set of corrective links.  May not be perfect but they will get you as close as possible.

In your situation, the Head Space with OEM links is meaningless.  Simply doesn't matter.  Pioneer may also exchange your present link set.

Major comes in, immediately opens all the windows to air the place out from the caustic odor permeating the room. :o :o Empties a can of Fabreeze to help.
Thanks Slim.

I have another thing that you might have some insight to.  I Don't know if you have ever looked at the SAAMI specs for the .45 ACP, they have two, one is for a "Match" chamber.  BUT,  there is also a strange specification for the .45 Auto Rim.  Look at the bullet diameter and the huge allowable throat dimension.  Oddly they have a smaller Groove diameter of Ø.4512 +.004/-.000 and a larger Bore diameter Ø.444 +.004/-.000 than the standard or match chamber .45 ACP.  That has to be the direct result of the S&W chambers and information they had on the original 1917 specifications.

I mean the bullet diameter can run from Ø.446 to Ø.452 (??????) and the throat in the cylinder starts at Ø.4555 and runs to Ø.4595.  I have no idea how they got that, but there is a reason.


Shotguns / Re: My 1897's

Well, I got to try out the Norinco on Saturday.  It worked just fine and was a pleasure. Every shot was a slamfire with no misses.  Also, during a couple of 15 minute practice sessions beforehand at home, I discovered that the shorter stock makes the weight and balance different enough that I can pick it up more easily with my left hand than before.  So on most of the stages I did that and loaded from the right.  The technique seems to work okay, I just need to speed it up about 100% !  Here's a video of one of the stages:

Also, the title to this thread said "My 1897's" but I only showed the two Chinese guns.  Here is the rest of the stable.  I was down to 3 '97's for 48 hours but the Norinco brought me back to four.  :)  Front to back, the "01" Norinco, the "CB" IAC, the takedown from 1911, and the 30" full-choke solid frame from 1911.
My survival practice is multi level.   1st one is when I lose the remote.   How long can I survive?   Proud to say I have made it 4 days, although that was because we had no power. 

Okay, seriously I do at least once a year start a fire, from gathering to using flint/steel.   We have a fire pit for my practice area.  Funny was my neighbor watching and him calling out he would loan me some matches, just as my bundle took light and I got the fire going.   Timing could not have been more ideal.
