Cool vid!   8)  I liked the one about Zippo lighters too, since I am a Zippo collector too.   8)

I saw this a few months ago. It was interesting to see that the frames are forged, rather than cast, as some believe.

Several years old, but the part I like the best is the precision frame wrench they use to tighten the barrel.  Lots of people swear if you don't use a precision (expensive) custom fitted frame wrench you will ruin the frame.  I know and have seen several top name gunsmiths using the same tool -- a piece of oak or hickory.

Oh yeah.  I got that it takes precision tools and fixtures to change a Colt barrel.  Then after I got to know a couple they invited me to come back to the shop and BS.  I watched them change barrels on several Colts, Rugers and others.  Rather than having six different kinds of action wrenches, they had a tapered piece of wood, just like in the Uberti video.

One thing that I cannot understand on this video, is the statement that on proof firing, "three times the service pressure" was used ! Surely that should be 130% of the guns service pressure, or 30% over normal !

And you expected better from a TV reporter .... ?

I've given the facts and accurate info to reporters at our CAS events and when I read the article, I can barely recognize my own shoot!
