Taurus springs them heavy to make up for the lack of time spent hand fitting the action parts.polish up the wear surfaces and they will slick up nicely.

Changed out my daughter's Taurus 605 springs with Wolff springs. Wow, what a difference.

1911 & Wild Bunch Shooting / Re: Going to my first Wild Bunch match!

Nope, mine holds 5.  It's the removable barrel model and the rotating gizmo up front cuts it to 5.  I even tried to use a different follower to get 6 in.

I ordered one of the 6 round conversion kits, but not sure if it will be here in time.

STORM / Re: Uberti '51 Navy .38 problem
« Last post by Abilene on Yesterday at 10:08:50 PM »
IMO the OP simply misspoke when he said '51 (once, in the title only).  His OT is commonly called a Navy OT due to the Navy grips.  He never once used the word conversion.  I agree with Coffinmaker that the OT's and Conversions all have pretty much the same issues and that there is often a fair amount of differences between all of them from the factory.  They can bind by various mechanisms including the front of the gas ring against the lower portion of the barrel as well as cylinder face against barrel.  If one OT and one conversion have the same cylinder to barrel gap as each other and only one binds, then it is not the design but how it is set up / tuned / assembled compared to the other one.  IMO.  There's an awful lot of people shooting BP in OT's with no problem.

The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: 45-60 Brass length ?
« Last post by hpbear101 on Yesterday at 09:53:09 PM »
Buffalo Arms states that the crimp groove is .460 back from the nose, 2.25"- .460" = 1.79", I doubt .002" will make much difference either way. Do you have the mold or any bullets to verify the distance to the crimp groove? If not I have an old version of the mold and some cast that I can check for you. I don't have a 45-60 but have used this bullet in 45-70 and it shoots great in 1886 Winchesters. HP bullets are a bit more time consuming to cast if you haven't already purchased the mold something like the Accurate 46-305C was designed for the 45-60. You can also get the in a multi cavity mold and have a little faster production time.      http://www.accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=46-305C

1911 & Wild Bunch Shooting / Re: Going to my first Wild Bunch match!

Well don't wear yourself out before the main match!  ;D  You will probably be the only Henry shooter.  :)  Does the '97 hold six? 

My WB 1911 load has been a 230gr over 4.8 W231 which has always run great in my Cimarron (Armscor) gun.  It gave me a 167 Power Factor the one time I had it chronied.  I still have a lot of those loaded, but have dropped the charge to 4.4 gr of 231 to see what those chrono at when I next get the chance.  You can be assured of making PF with 5.1gr !

Looks great! That's a fine choice for a '77 DA. Nice work. 8)

Thanks. I am very pleased with the way it fits in there and the suede is nice and easy on the finish I’m sure. Went with a dark brown to try and compliment the dark brown plastic grip.

1911 & Wild Bunch Shooting / Going to my first Wild Bunch match!
« Last post by Tuolumne Lawman on Yesterday at 07:43:09 PM »
I am headed to the "High Sierra Shoot Out" annual match at Railroad Flat, CA on Memorial day weekend.  On Thursday, they are holding a Wild Bunch match, before the main match 12 stages begins on Friday.  Got my Rock Island dialed in, a stack of magazines, my 18.5" original Winchester 1897, and my 1860 Henry .44-40. 

Ther Rock Island loves the 230 grain lead over 5.1 grains of WW231.  I'll be shooting in style!

I have been going to this match most years since 1995.  It is almost an annual religious pilgrimage for me.
