Frontier Iron / Re: Shooting black powder in Uberti topbreaks
« Last post by U.S.M.R. on Today at 02:19:33 PM »
I’ve been looking at other black powder revolvers. The C&B Colt and Remington revolvers has no cylinder bushings. The Colt has a reputation for shooting a little longer than a Remington. Perhaps because of the top strap collecting a little more fouling? The frame of the Beals covered the barrel threads the old and new models didn’t.  Could the reason be to reduce fouling in that area? While I’m sure the cylinder bushing in a Colt helped it keep shooting longer it was used to set the headspace. My original S&Ws have relief cuts beneath the top strap to provide more clearance. Also the originals have.004 more barrel cylinder gap.
All this leads me to believe that the less metal around the barrel cylinder gap the better. The new S&Ws have very little clearance relatively speaking in this area. This and the lack of cylinder bevels I don’t believe helps matters any.

No grain. I don't know if their heavily aged styles show grain or not.  My Tru-Ivory grips show grain but they are out of business.  There is another guy on ebay from whom I've bought some fake ivory 1911 grips that do have some grain and are reminiscent of the Tru-Ivory, but unfortunately that guy makes stuff for Rugers only but not Colt style.

Thanks for the reply. Good looking grips.

Hi Jerry, you might rename the files since, I didn't have everyone's name when I sent those in.

Last night at midnight I told myself I was going to watch the first couple minutes before going to bed.  I was 24 minutes in before I forced myself to save the rest for later.  :)

91 already here, supposed to hit or break 100 everyday the rest of the week. Decaf this morning, the stomach was complaining all night, so gonna take it easy today. Praying our Pastor is well, he was sick Sunday, so I hope I don't have to cover tonight. Y'all be good today.
Thanks Guys,

I have been thinking about APP. I think that my first option will be to get the tools I need to trim and roll crimp my shells and use (dare I say it) smokeless, thus using powder and under wads with the addition of an over shot card. then I can use my MEC to do most of the work.

Those Faux Ivory are actually truly Atrocious.  Would that they would fit my Pietta based conversions, I would be willing to save you the embarrassment of having them seen in public.  :o ::)

People are still Contagious.  Avoid 'Em
Shotguns / Re: Black powder followed by smokeless - weird fouling

PLUS ONE for Cap'n Redneck


If I may (heck, I am) I would suggest you consider loading your roll crimped hulls with APP.  The other consideration, your 87 is expressing it's preference for two and a half inch hulls (also roll crimped).  APP requires no crimp and no lube when loaded for shotgun.  Recommended is 2f.
