    What guns to buy? Uberti vs Miroku 73's

    +1 on Miroku. Went from a self slicked Rossi 92 45 to the Miroku 45, both 24" rifles. Might have lucked out but with just cleaning and minimal smoothing on carrier it works slicker than some short stroked Ubertis I have compared them too. Interior machining appears crisper and cleaner. Lever throw is just under vertical. Full disclosure, I am nowhere near a sub 20 sec shooter, but throw the smoke and fire from BP.

    Source for SPG Lubed Bullets ???????????

    Never a problem with Goex FFF and Whyte's big lube bullets

    WTB: Toggle links and lifter arm for Winchester Miroku Made 1873 rifle

    My Miroku runs smooth with a short throw right out of the box. Plus it's a real W.

    need your guys opinions

    Chuckaroo after his surgery for laser engraving. Turn around should be quick if you wait until August.

    Gunbroker night: You know, I think I overpaid on this but...

    Put your spring kit in and ready to go for years. What are your better options for under $600? There aren't any. I get asked to sell my Rossi 92 a few times a year, politely decline.

    black powder 12ga shells

    I use the Lee load all also. Easy. I find gun clubs work best for my load choices. Cheddite 209's, 1 1/8 oz shot, Claybuster red wad, 4.3 cc Dipper.

    Cleaning BP firearms between stages

    Did you completely clean off the metal actions (brake cleaner) then relube with Ballistol prior to shooting the black powder? You will be happy with the results. Think about it being similar to seasoning a cast iron pan. Once you get it lubed, cleaning will be a breeze and I have no problems running 2 days. Deep cleaning with the brake cleaner is only done the first time. After that cut a mixture if 10 to 1 Ballistol and water becomes your cleaning solvent. After cleaning lube with uncut Ballistol and you are ready to go.

    cataract surgery lens options

    Had mine done 15 years ago. Declined the option and wanted just 20/20. I wear readers for computer and close work. Bifocal Fishing sunglasses are my normal go to when driving and shooting. Anything closer than the end of my arm needs glasses, all else is fine.

    AYA single trigger

    Are you cowboy enough to throw a stout 26" around?

    AYA single trigger

    Look for Ejectors, if so not for SASS. Overpriced by half imo. If in great shape maybe $500 for skeet...maybe. Many were made for JCHiggins. A grand would get you Hand Cannon's SKB. Already tuned up.

    Wanted: 45 Colt brass

    Make sure you are not over flaring the case to accept the bullet. Make sure you aren't over crimping with the 4th die. Overworking that case mouth might contribute to splits. Maybe measure your conversion cylinders to make sure one isn't over large in diameter. If you find a looser one make that your open chamber. Other pards might have suggestions.

    I'll bring you 150 cleaned and primed to the match Sunday. I've got more than I need.

    Have you disassembled the magazines and cleaned and oiled, then reassembled?
