Uberti, Pietta and other SAA Clones / Re: Bought another clone
« Last post by Cliff Fendley on May 11, 2021, 04:25:25 PM »
Recently I got a Uberti SAA replica .32-20 with 7 1/2" barrel from Dixie Gun Works. It was the Old Model frame with the retaining screw in the front but it had the retractable firing pin and 3-click hammer. Abiline I do hope Cimarron is continuing to keep their Old Model frame Uberti's in the 4-click version. I think Cimarron is the only one to still have 4-clickers. I have also seen pictures on Gunbroker of Taylor's & Co. Old Model Frame Uberti's that appear to be 3-clickers, based on the position of the trigger.

That's your difference, Uberti from Dixie, Taylor, etc. Cimarron are the only ones still the old way. For how long they can keep getting them is unknown.

As for basepins, my most recent Old Model Cimarron custom order model P had the shorter one position basepin like they are now putting in the ones with the new fangled retractable firing pin models so it was a win win. Just like a SAA is supposed to be.

Sorry for a late reply.  The Cavalry model does have 4 clicks, and I also shortened the base pin.  Nicely finished gun and I'm extremely pleased with it.

On a side not, I ordered a .38-40 SA from Taylor"s & Co. with 4 3/4" barrel.  I finally got it and it had the 3 click hammer.  I ordered an older style 4 click hammer and trigger and installed them.  Much better now.

Ore-Ida instant mash potatoes, are your friend ...
Good luck, just take your Anti-Bio's as prescribed.
Use some table salt in warn water to gargle

My follow-up went well , no infection , but he did not take out the stiches ( said they will dissolve )
I'm to go back is 3 weeks "if" they have not and he will remove them, or I can cancel the appointment if they have .

The Powder Room - CAS reloading / 40-60 bullet weight?

I am in the process of purchasing a Chaparral 1876.  I know of prior bad press of the manufacturer.  I bought one of the first five that were in this country.  This rifle has been totally reworked internally to be reliable in function, etc.  My question is that since the twist rate is 1-22 compared to original guns at 1-40, what bullet weight would be best to start at?  The original guns shot a 210gr bullet because of the slow twist.  With the faster twist, I would think a 240gr-260gr might be a better choice.  I do load BP and do not plan on using smokeless.  I am planning on trying between .406-.409 diameters.  The barrel length is 28".
Thank you for any information or suggestions given.

Getting a copy of that holster would be neat.

An interesting view was offered some years ago. If you observe, the Japanese Navy never would go all in on a fight once it was started. Pearl Harbor, Coral Sea, the Solomons, Bismarck Sea, etc. There was almost never the total commitment to win after getting their nose bloodied. It has been that way throughout history, look at the US Civil War. It was not won until Grant came in to the East and just wouldn't quit, even though Lee kept punishing him. He stayed in constant contact and battle until he just wore Lee out.

Not Nagumo.  Center force commander was VADM Kurita. Nagumo was removed from sea command after Eastern Solomon's.
