BROW / Re: building a Sharps

The trigger bar is machined from mild steel and the last piece to make is a small piece to complete it where the middle tang screw goes. I had already made the rear trigger of mild steel and the front trigger return spring from an old clock spring. Once finished the appropriate parts will be case color hardened.

Hi

I bought an SAA Cavalry model in .45 Colt several years ago.  I've been shooting 1911's for 15 plus years and am VERY comfortable with 1911's.  I was completely uncomfortable with the SAA.  Johnson Barr let me try out his Schofields and the other S&W types, between he and Oklahoma Tom, I got to grip everything imported by 2018.  I ended up with the Schofield because it fit best.  Try what you can find and shoot if you can, it DOES make a difference.

Makes you appreciate the ones that get a lot of it right.  Being into old guns, I'd always notice the guns weren't right.  One of my cousins is heavily into horses, and she'd notice four different horses ridden by the same guy in one chase scene.  When "Heartbreak Ridge" came out, I was halfway through the movie before I realized that was supposed to be 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune, when any Marine out there could see it was obviously Camp Pendleton, specifically Camp Talega.  I won't even get into police shows...........

Hi, I work in Aerospace.  Don't watch things like Broken Arrow or Pearl Harbor with us.  In Pearl Harbor some of the destroyers that they flew over were current issue next to the Arizona...

If they made it out of kevlar and swung it around, it could do double duty.

STORM / ASM Conversions
« Last post by reno on Today at 01:48:27 pm »
I know about the QC of the ASMS but does low serial numbers mean anything. I just bought two #590X and #95X they lock up tight and are very accurate, and like new, except for the one with the three tight screws?
Thanks

USFA CSS / Re: New Here!

animalspooker, I am not that familiar with the Longhunter guns, but I think other than USFA producing them specifically for Longhunter the revolvers may have been action tuned by Longhunter. Rodeos are flat black in color and could be Italian parts revolvers or 100% USA parts revolvers depending on serial number range and date of manufacture. All Rodeo II's are brushed nickel and 100% USA parts. Premium revolvers have CC frames and either dome or old armory blueing and depending on date of manufacture could be either import parts, 100% USA parts, or a combination of both. A number of things will determine value, i.e., condition, import parts or 100% USA parts, caliber, engraving, combination of features and/or adds, etc.

Can you set it off on your own? Could you video it for us?😆

In the meantime I have asked Jesus to watch over you, my friend.
