CAS City Classifieds / Re: Still looking for Uberti grips.
« Last post by cpt dan blodgett on June 27, 2022, 01:45:15 PM »
Day before Yesterday I received a set of grips for my Uberti Cattleman that I bought off the SASS wire that had poorly fitted super slick urethane coated shiny grips.  The new ones are purported to be Uberti Grips and I have no reason to doubt Midwest Gun works.  Said grips were not in stock initially but I signed up for notification.  Got notified and ordered them, pretty quick shipping.  The grips fit pretty well along the back of frame, actually close enough to call good but given they were about 1/16 or so long where the grip hits he frame squarely and also about same or a bit more long at the toe of the butt some fitting was required.  Fairly easy to get to fit using 320 grit sand paper.  Actually harder to sand off all the finish than it was to get them to fit.  Sadly it has been about 10 years or so since I finished my Krag and 03 Springfield Stocks and the Army Red Stain and Boiled linseed oil can are both in a safe place that is now undetermined.  Have elected to finish grips with Formby's Tung oil.  After the first several coats did find a bottle of old english crack filler which I could have mixed in to darken the tung oil but alas I do not want to re-sand to bare wood so the lighter natural finish will be how I roll.  Have several coats on but need to add several more before finish is close to the factory finish on my New Uberti Cattleman. Will post pics at a later time when I get them mounted on the gun if there is any interest in that sort of gun porn.

The Winchester Model 1873 / Re: Winchester - Miroku 1873 with black powder?
« Last post by Dave T on June 27, 2022, 12:38:56 PM »
I'm with the Coffinmaker on this one. I haven't shot a bench, sandbag, or other wise rested group with either of the Miroku '73s I have. I can't do CAS anymore because of disability problems. For the same reason I'll never go hunting again either. I'm trying to relive the 19th Century experience of shooting these copies with ammo that duplicates the original ballistic performance of the BP 44 WCF.

My test for accuracy and sighting in with the latest one, a Saddle Ring Carbine, was to put up a 10" steel plate at 50 yards and try to hit it. Why 10"? Because I can't see the sights all that well anymore, although the SRC front sight is easier to see than the standard rifle front. And because, again with the disability, I can't hold all that steady. Point being, with the first 5 shots I hit it 3 times and called the 2 misses. The guy with me, who's about 10 years younger and that much steadier, hit it 5 for 5. Don't need to put it on paper. It will do if I can. I might even put up a 6" plate I have and try that one...on a good day.  (smile)

Very nice! Hard to believe your only at it for two years. As Abilene said "you are a very fast learner".

Thank you Johnny. I made my first holster on July 8, 2020. I have now made a good number of holsters but very few that had any type of carvings on them. It's something that I def. want to get better at.

Very nice looking work sir. A little tip, don't make straight continuous cuts near the spine, it makes it easy to split. Break it up a bit.

Noted. Thanks.
