Gun Reviews / Re: Questions About Current Percussion Replica Revolvers
« Last post by Crooked River Bob on January 24, 2022, 11:18:50 AM »
I started this thread a couple of years ago.  I somehow got distracted and had not checked it in quite a while, and I'm pleased to see the conversation continued.  The collective knowledge here is remarkable, and differences of opinion are expressed as only true gentlemen can.

I ended up with a Uberti 1st Model Dragoon.  I had a little trouble finding a Dragoon at the time, but Mike Brackett (of Goon's Gun Works) actually went out and bought one from a dealer he knew and then did the requested "Outlaw Mule" tune-up.  All I had to do was write the check!  I am very happy with this six-shooter.  I will say that any of the Dragoons will be "a lot of gun".  Old time plainsmen liked them for running buffalo... That ought to tell you something.  Might not be the best choice for a die-hard competition shooter in a match with time-based scoring, but that's not why I got it.

This has been a great thread.  Thanks to all who contributed!

Well, unless you can come up with a 'new' manufacturer. Then by all means let us know. ;D

Gunsmithing / Re: Why Oh Why 20" octagon Barrel

 :)  PLUS ONE for Abilene  ;)

Actually a really BIG PLUS ONE!!  CAS/SASS drove the popularity of 20" lever rifles.  And yes, it was because of the switch to 10 round rifle stages.  Lotta carbines only help 9.

Now.  Yep, now days, CAS/SASS guns are in short supply.  Everything except black rifles are in short supply.  So you are dealing with a sellers market and the sellers are trying to gouge all the profit they can from their rifles.  Sock it to you so to speak.  There is absolutely no "real" reason for current prices except supply and demand and the folks selling those rifles are selling for all they can screw you out of.

Yesterday was gray & gloomy all day, temps never got to 55°
But today, it's clear and 39° should see 60°.

I did get out and shoot the new to me Zastava M57. I have no Tokarev ammo, but I do load
C96 Mauser and also have some PPU & Fiocchi 7.63 Mauser factory rounds.
These are not as hot as the Tokarev, thought cycle the M57 just fine.
At 2 lbs. there not much felt recoil at all, and the trigger is surprisingly good for surplus military gun.
This is in fact military, not one of the current made Zastava Arms M57A's.
it also has the 1911 style external safety, rather than the slide mounted of the M57A.

When it warms up a tad, I'll Chrono my rounds.

Must be nice Mr Rockefeller. ‘My name is Morgan but it ain’t J P.’

I had no clue I was going to walk out with the M57 from my friends LGS.
Simply called in to look at and offer some insight on a cased Adams revolver and drop off some holsters
I had made for him.

No money exchanged hands :)  Looks way cool in my WB holster, Serbian Cowboy
