New Shorty Hot Rods

Recommended Posts

So, last week I email Jimmy Spurs to ask about building me a set of new short barreled NMV's with his full race package.  8 days later they are sitting at my FFL ready for me to pick them up.  He got these things built in record time and they are fantastic!

 

Going to break them in this weekend!

This is my first set of 3.75" pistols, but they sure feel good.  I shot a pardners a few weeks ago and just had to have a set.

 

I don't see many folks shooting them around these parts.

Did he put a heavy chamfer on the front of the cylinder?

 

If they are 38/357, you may want to try loading 38 Short Colt loads.  Besides being a little more efficient with fast burning powder, they will likely eject clear with the short ejector rod.

TOTES:

mine are 3" from from of frame to tip of my OCTAGON barrels.

 

I have identical sets in both .32 H&R and .45's.

 

Love the balance of them.

 

P.S. - I really like that double ring put on the cylinders.   That is really a nice style, IMHO.

Those look super!

Were they financed by my buying your 5.5 ROAs?

 

I have a pair of 3" Colt Shopkeepers in 44-40/44 Special.

Love the short-barreled guns for Frontier Cartridge GunFighter.

Building a pair of 3" ROAs this winter as an alternative to my 3: Pietta 1860 shubbies -- Great capgun GunFighter pistolas.

Howdy,

So nice Ruger should be makin em.

IF you have a problem with popping cases out, turn the

cylinder just a bit so the ej rod runs down the side of the chamber.

Catch the TOP of the empty and not the bottom.

Also smooth the chambers up with a little polish compound or

some really cheap white toothpaste, the 88 cents a tube kind.

This makes em near fall out on their own.

Best

CR
