    marlinman93, What a super nice collection. I just love images of these great rollers. How long have you been collecting them, and do you have to travel many miles to find these treasures? Or do you find them online? I really like the #4 three...

    I'm glad you worked through the fix without sending it back. I agree, C Sharps IS a good outfit. Sometimes stuff happens like you said. Nice rifle by the way!

    Yes, I too got sent down this rabbit hole by Randy also, who know maybe someday if I catchup with him we'll have a few words about all this roller fun. I still plan on doing a roller in a slim octagon about 16 inches chambered in 45 Colt. Lord, just...

    In my experience there are two basic categories of BP lube. One kind works in most situations and the other does not. The ones that work do so with a blow tube or to a lesser degree - shooting dirty. If you wipe between shots (every shot) the lube...

    I don't have any real answers to your question so here is what I know. Ruger and Colt made revolver convertibles that with different cylinders, could shoot either. So I think the question of pressure is not a problem. Whether they used a 0.224"...

    Ash works great. It does not have the tendency to split like oak and is a bit less dense, and works and finishes well. I replaced a few handles with oak too. It is not bad but I have some ash and so use that now.
