    use masking tape over the muzzle. it keeps things out of the barrel plus the air punches a hole through it. no chance of blowing a barrel. I read about them taping the barrels on fighters in ww2 to keep them from icing up.

    in pa. if you have a licenses to carry you can carry any hand gun you want loaded. I carry a browning n-p with me all the time. but the bunny cops case problems if you have a loaded long gun in the truck.

    I think uberti is making them in .44spl. now. I have a 66 uberti in .44-40 it handles well I use it for deer. it shoots about as far as I can safely. a .30-30 will carry too far.

    yes they did make some in centerfire in later production. so now we have what I have seen a 66 that could be bought at a reasonable cost will be well used. one that will be in shooting condition will be $10,000 plus. I have a uberti 66 in .44-40...

    I prefer south-bends because I have 3 now and parts are plentiful. but if I had a good working Sheldon lathe I would be just as happy. you did good. I hope you get that old American iron running.
