STORM / Re: Italian date stamps Year of Manufacture
« Last post by The Pathfinder on Yesterday at 08:37:24 AM »
Ok, now you've gotten my interest up. Drug out the new Cimarron American I got late last year (right after they announced Smokin' Joe won) and had to hunt to find the date code. They put it under the grips, but on one side is the standard CZ in the box and on the opposite side is the Uberti logo with 2020, no box, under it. Weird.

The Dremel gets a bad rap and rightly so! (Thanks Perfessor!! )  Most folks attempt to hold the motor while trying to do "precision" maneuvers, at a constant speed  - recipe for  .  .  .  well, screwed up parts!  The  setup needed if you're going to go that route includes a flexible shaft with a much more manageable hand piece AND, AND,  I SAID  A-N-D  a  variable speed control (mine is foot operated) !!!!  So, you'll need more than just a dremel motor and a set of bits/sanding drums!! The MAIN ingredient is CONTROL!!    OH .  .  .   wear eye protection  .  .  .   or the Eye Doc will use a mini "dremel" to dig metal (and the rust bloom) out !!! Not good!!   Personally, (since then!) I look through a large, adjustable, mounted/lighted mag lens   -  works great!!!

That's true. UCP was a great example of why racism and wrong ideologies don't fit in the Canadian society and way of thinking.

As far as I know, rifles can be shipped only via registered mail, but it's quite expensive.

Professor, cratex comes in sticks as well as other forms. I have and use various grits in 1/2” square ones that are 6” long. Great for some final polishing contoured shapes but as we agree not the flats. It’s impossible for me to keep up with all the wiz bang products out there but these are handy.

Thank you Kent!
Re the Dremel assumption I stand corrected.
As we all agree, on flats, flexi is not so good

thanks for the link Silver Creek Slim!

Good luck with that!  Honestly, that looks like the kind of info you get from lots of different sources.

That's the problem.  I've spent the cost of a decent revolver on references over the past 2 years, to put together less than a page of notes on who had what when.  It is an interesting question, but I'm just not interested enough to continue for much longer.
