 The trigger pull on my Uberti 1851 was super light, about 1.5 lbs., out of the box. The Western Regionals SASS was near me and the Cowboy & Indian Store was there. I had him do a quick job on the hammer and trigger to give me a 2.5 - 3.0 lb pull. He did it right there while I watched. He filed the full cock notch and the trigger sear.
I have some Cherry Red case hardening compound. My question is, would it be beneficial to re-harden the full cock notch and/or trigger sear? Any problem with re-hardening the full cock notch on a hammer that has already been case hardened with the Italian chemical case hardening?

Forum Donations / Potential Forum Crisis

There is a financial crisis that involves and

I have a financial crisis that will not be resolved until October 31, which is the date of my next substantial income. Until then, my highest priority is providing the necessary essentials for my family, which is challenging enough. I do not foresee sufficient income for this, much less being able to resolve the added financial requirements of maintaining and operating our online presence.

I am a state employee working at our local high school. We are shutdown for the summer without any income and our money is rapidly running out. I usually make ends meet by doing various jobs, but I am  under doctor’s orders to take it easy for now.

Since internet access is not the highest priority, I may have to let our home internet service go. So I will not be online often, but will stop in as often as possible to ensure this forum and its sister forums are operational online without any issues.

If anyone is led to do so, please help with our forum hosting costs, Please do not act out of a sense of obligation. Nothing is expected of anyone.

I assume the donation link on the home page is operational.

Prices for this book are all over the place, but I think this is the book to have if you are interested in the Paterson revolver.


Hi, another Paterson revolver book for not too bad a price:

Looks just like that here in Colorado.  Been this way most of the summer.
