Uberti, Pietta and other SAA Clones / Re: Annoyed by a Uberti Update
« Last post by cpt dan blodgett on Yesterday at 02:37:31 PM »
Made it to the range and did some load testing all went well something like 15 rounds down range, thought ok this is a keeper.  Fast fwd about a month and I attempted to shoot my first match with said pistole.  4 Stages great.  Stage 5 first round in cylinder Bang next for nothing.  Ground pistol pull second a $410 shipped uberti cattleman with new model frame 5 rounds bang.  Stage six fire the $419 shipped used pistole 5 bangs, pull the New Uberti Bang Click click click click.  Pretty obvious the floating firing pin is not functioning as it should.  Started the return for warranty work from Taylors.  In the mean time have given gun a good cleaning and will attemp to fire some more rounds in the next few days.

I did the good cleaning and just fired 50 rounds with no problem, I am thinking a bit of grit got into the firing pin hole in the frame and was stopping the firing pin from fully protruding resulting in light primer strikes.  The 50 rounds that just functioned flawlessly were all loaded at the same time using same settings on all the dies and primer seater that the light primer strike rounds were produced.  Looks like it may well be a keeper.

Thanks, John. Thank you also for posting the photo. That holster is the the right side. It must be the match for the left side one in Packing Iron. But then, he wore them butt forward so that would be the left to match with the right one in PI. ;D  That's one thing I like about Slim Jims. They are suitable for either way of wearing them.
Excellent episode Santee!

Yeah! And two in one day.

Excellent tutorial! I like how you displayed the tools used to make the Holster. That's a great tip about using a punch for tight radius cutting, I've always had problems cutting tight radii with a knife. A punch makes a perfect cut.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished project.

I took the attached picture at the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming. They say the Pistol and Holster was supposed to be owned by Wild Biil and was raffled off to pay his funeral expenses?
Excellent episode Santee!

A friend sent me this this morning. I don't know who Harrison is but he has struck the nail upon the flat part.

"People demanding 'common sense' gun laws fail to realize the people they think will obey those laws don't use common sense. Besides, a society that believes 2+2=5 and that can no longer define what a woman is, may want to find something other than 'common sense' to make its case." —Darrell B. Harrison

There are a few steps to do before dying. The back of the throat edge gets beveled, as does the back of the belt loop. The belt loop is also skived a little thinner (off the top grain) where it stitches on at the upper end. Stitch grooves get cut on both pieces. The square is to keep the straight line running across the belt loop straight. With the stitch grooves cut, the very edge is shaved off with a small bevel to take the sharpness off and any remaining ball point men marks get removed in the process.

For dye, the holster gets a dark brown mix, diluted a little with alcohol. The pieces are then set aside for the dye to dry thoroughly.

And after a second coat of dye since the first didn’t cover quite enough.
