Armi Jaeger SAA...
« on: October 15, 2020, 06:49:32 PM »
      Greetings!

   Thought you folks might like to see an old EMF Co. Inc. "Dakota" SAA Replica, .32-20 cartridge. Date Code [AL] / 1983.
Acquired lightly used in the mid 80's. In the original box reside the manual, the brass backstrap & triggerguard, and "Safety"
Cylinder Pin; if I recollect correct, the replacement Cylinder Pin is an A.Uberti. Soon after purchase, I bought the replacement
steel backstrap & triggerguard from EMF, and carefully draw filed them to fit the frame.
   I don't recall how many Ideal #311316 and #3118 cast bullets over 4.5 grains of Unique I've fired out of this revolver;
rather accurate, in spite of the .317" chamber throat. "WW / Range Scrap" shoots very well.
   I've been playing with the idea of getting an A.Uberti SAA with a 7.5" barrel. The cartridge does have some idiosyncrasies,
as pointed out by Ken Waters and others; nonetheless, it's a real performer with lead bullets, as well as the .32H&RM
jacketed bullets available. The little Hornady #3205(?) 85gr JHP was very accurate with Hercules/Alliant 2400 Powder.

                  M.T.M.

When I was about 10 years old, I shot my Dads S&W Hand Ejector in 32-20 for the first time.
I had shot his 22 H&R revolver since maybe 8 or so.... but

The 32-20 to that 10 year old,  was a Big caliber, heady grown up mans gun... :)

I've like that cartridge ever since, Dad's S&W  is mine now, and I have a Colt , and Uberti SAA as well as a JM Marlin Classic Rifle
and an original 1873 Winchester Rifle in 32-20.... I think it safe to say it is my favorite cartridge .
when planets align...do the deal !

       Greetings, Major2!

   A truly dandy cartridge! I wish that I'd had the good sense to grab one of the Marlin 1894 Classic
rifles when the grabbing would've been much cheaper than now!
