    Thank you Rex in OTZ, that was very interesting.

    Putting grease in the chambers of percussion revolvers is a modern day thing. Colt never
    recommended putting grease in chambers. Chain fires are caused by the parabolic effect of an
    initial explosion....

    Yes, I can just see Old D'Boone mixing up Coconut oil and pastel crayons for patch lube. Back
    in the day beef tallow was the big favorite. We pay over $20 bucks a pound for powder and 5

    Johnson's floor wax.Hmmm, haven't heard of anyone using that, but, if you've tried it and it

    If bumping the butt sets it off, I'll betcha it's lighter than a pound.Yeah, I wonder if it is
    less than the 1 1/2-2 lb, I guessed at the trigger weight. I'm comfortable with pulls, known
    weight, of 4...

    Trigger pull is so light, that a slight bump on the heel of the pistol will cause the hammer to
    fall. I realize some folks like a lighter pull but my question is asking for help to make it a
    little he...

    I wondered about using plain lard, kinda like, why not? But, can't plain lard get a bit too
    thin if gun is in holster and it's 100deg., which it is a lot of days here in TX? One recipe I

    Purchased a used CVA Remington Army replica and other than having about a 1 1/2lb-2lb trigger
    pull, it's a excellent gun. Where can I get replacement parts? I went to CVA site, no help.

    Just a FYI. I didn't see paying $4.00 an oz for bore butter since the old timers used easy to
    find lubes. So, I researched a few links and came up with a very useable, inexpensive and handy
