I need some opinions on this revolver we took to the Range yesterday ?
This is one of the guns we shot :
Every other shot it would cap jam ? Seams the cap fragment was actually getting under the hammer each shot , prior to pulling the hammer back to put the next round into battery ? Never experienced this Colt phenomina before and want some opinions ?
The Caps were the new Remington caps , maybe they are too hot and it was blowing the hammer back and lodging the spent cap under the hammer against the frame ? Maybe the hammer spring is too light and was blowing back the hammer and lodging the cap ? We were shooting 15 and 20 grain Holy Black loads in her and it jambed either way ? Maybe the hammer needs to have some of the face removed as its hitting the nipple too much and causing hammer blowback ?
Any thoughts ? I am not willing to do the pin/post mod on this gun , so there must be another way and reason why this is happening and a cure ?
HELP ! LoL , thanks yall
Oh and by the way , we had fun ! 4 guns , nearly half a pound of powder shot , Holy Crap Batman !
The gun that performed the best was the 1860 Uberti Colt Army .44 full fluted model I had in the classifieds that someone SHOULD have bought
. That gun can shoot and I highly recomend you get one . It felt so good to dirty a couple new guns
Cheerios , KAB out
