  • Posted in thread: Ruger Blackhawk sight replacement on 04-16-2016 at 02:09 AM
    I have seen peep sights advertised for Ruger Blackhawks, but never really considered one. I
    have upgraded a couple of my Rugers with Millett and Gary Reeder rear sights. But I retained
    the Patridge st...

    This touches on a peeve of mine regarding 'Cartridges of the World.' From the dawn of
    cartridges through about 1980 pistol and ammunition makers were fond of sticking their own name
    on already existin...

    And those grips appear to be Catalin, a phenolic resin similar to Bakelite. This was an early
    "plastic" developed for, I believe, dental use.The grips John Wayne favored on his six shooters
    were Catal...

    That is a Colt New Service. The early Colt .38-40 heeled bullet and bore dimensions were the
    same as the .41 Long Colt. The .38-40 heeled was actually a .40-40 caliber. Colt later reduced
    the .38-40 t...

    tinbucket:I'm not into that SASS type of shooting, but am a handgunner so do shoot some. First
    of all, any of the Single Action imports will easily handle 2,000 rounds of ammunition. But for

    While I do like the Colt SAA, I prefer mine with better sights, the New Frontier: have I ever
    mentioned I also like the Ruger Single Actions? Wright

  • Posted in thread: The New Dan Wesson. Any takers? on 09-22-2015 at 10:28 PM
    While I've never owned a Dan Wesson, I have shot quite a few, and a fair number of rounds
    through them. As far as a reload, the hands are in the same relative position for reloading as
    other DA revolv...

  • Posted in thread: Wanted a Winchester Revolver and an Automatic Revolver on 09-05-2015 at 01:58 AM
    I saw the Winchester revolvers at the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming around 1989 or so. I
    believe Winchester gave their collection to this musuemuem when shutting down their plant in Ne
    Haven, C...

    My observation is that the instructor is facing the wrong direction. The target behind him
    tells me he is not facing downrange.Bob Wright

    If I'm not mistaken, I think the Freedom Arms Single Action can be had in .357 Maximum.Bob
