    73 cycling problem

    I am told that Uberti uses the same magazine tube for all caliber 73’s. Sometimes the 38/357s wind up with a zig zag pattern in the magazine tube and they don’t feed reliably all the time. There is available a sleeve and spring and fowler kit that can be purchased that makes the smaller cartridges line up better in the magazine tube. You might want to try this fix.

    Nipple Covers?

    I had a friend that practiced firing his 1858 Remington. He removed the cylinder and hung a bag filled with a small amount of lead on the frame to simulate the weight lost when the cylinder was removed. Dry firing without the hammer falling on the nipple didn’t seam to bother the gun any.

    How does this affect gun owners?

    In NY when the instituted the SAFE act it included a ban on “assault” rifles. If you had one at the time you could register it with the state and continue to use it. But you can only sell it out of state and if you die the state will take it without compensation. Your estate cannot own the rifle or sell it.

    Ballistol to clean black powder?

    I have been using SimpleGreen for the last 20 years and it works great and is cheap to buy.

    Stopping rust in a rifle magazine

    CC I know that I can’t escape them completely but Texas has fewer taxes, more gun friendly gun laws and for the most part they murder fewer babies. Still only in the talking stages of moving to Texas but we are talking more & more about it all the time. NCD

    44-40 on a progressive press?

    I load 44-40 on my Dillon 650 using RCBS dies & a Lee FCD. I also use the Mr. Bullet feeder in .45 cal. for a .427 bullet along with a Dillon case feeder and they both work fine. I use powder coated bullets from Missouri Bullet.

    Stopping rust in a rifle magazine

    The wife and I are having serious discussions about moving to Texas. Want to get away from the taxes, gun laws and abortion laws.

    Uberti 1873 Rifle .44.40 preferred loads

    I use 5.3 gr. of promo in my 44-40 carbine and hand guns. I called Alliant about this question and they suggested the load.
