    That is a new one for me. Kinda before my cowboy time, but hey, it took 71 years to learn this.
    So we have the various hammer blocks and we have transfer bars. The transfer bar seems to be
    universal w...

    Not being super familiar with Uberti firearms for a while, I need to get something straightened
    out.If a single action has a base pin hammer block (as did my Great Westerns), you engaged this

    I started shooting SASS in 2000 and the Italian imports had problems. The pawls, the bolt stop,

    AIKI, actually the Hombre will handle factory rounds great. The Colt SAA, while strong, is not

    inches at 25 y...

    The cylinder pin (base pin) goes through the front of the frame, through the cylinder, and into
    the recoil shield at the back of the frame. The base pin has two grooves in it. Depress the
    sliding pin ...

    The Hombre has the same guts as the others. The finish, brass frame, grips are all
    utilitarian=inexpensive. The 45 Colt is a good round for self defense. Just teach yourself to
    shoot and cock with one...
