Open top dealers in Canada
« on: January 24, 2020, 04:47:10 PM »
I'm in the market for an open top, are there any dealers in Canada beside Wolverine (they have only two)?  Caliber and barrel length are not important.

There MUST be a dealer in Canuckistan that handles guns for the CAS crowd, yes?

SASS rules are maximum of 30 degrees from vertical, as worn.

Don't forget the "as worn" part.  If your belt tilts down in front like a lot of them do, that will increase the angle.

YUP! I figure roughly 15degrees. Ends up straight down on strong side and 30 Degree on the cross. Depending on to amount of wealth displayed in the area above your belt buckle. Yer mileage on the treadmill may vary. Try some sample holsters before mortgaging the spread.

Well........ I am truly blessed!  After putting out the thought/desire to own an Open Top a fellow member here offered an 1872 Uberti in >45 Colt 7 1/2" barrel,bought it,  actually got to shoot it ONCE before the ranges in Canuckistan were shut down because of the ' bullshiite' (sic)  coronavirus. Sold a Ruger #3 custom .38-55 taking another 1872 5 1/2" Open Top in partial trade, this one is .38 special. Now have to wait for the transfer to come through. Will post pics when I figure out how. Now I want another one.......................!

Try Shooter's Choice in Alberta, their current Uberti page shows a couple of 1871 Open Tops.

Thanks for the lead, found a Uberti Mason conversion in .45 Colt, 8" barrel, at Prophet River,  ;D waiting now for the transfer, Ontario CFO is very slow. Gonna load .45 Colt Extra Short (.45 Cowboy Special) brass using .45 ACP target load data in this one and the 1871 I bought from you. Been wanting to try APP powder, black substitute, but no luck finding any in Canada so far.  :(  Perhaps some other Canuckians have a lead?
