In other words a hedgehog cactus with orange flowers. This one is blooming in our front yard right now.

Army Models / Re: Uberti 1860?

Hi, the new Uberti 1860 Civilian just came in the door. A quick look over shows it to be a beauty in all respects. Fit, finish, and timing perfect. It couldn't be any better. The bluing is deep blue that appears to be 3" deep. Even the color case hardening of the frame is darker and deeper than any other previous Uberti I have purchased. Uberti must be now doing the faux Pietta method of color case hardening.

Tomorrow I will strip the revolver down, strip the preservation oil, and then do the mods described in my previous post. Photos will follow.

Regards,
Richard

I swear when the wind blows from the South West I can smell EM's smoker cooking away.

Started the day with some hand sliced strips of the green chili bacon I smoked yesterday...















And finished the day with double-smoked, maple-glazed, spiral-sliced ham.





The ham was a spiral sliced from Costco, which I then smoked with a mix of hickory and pecan. I glazed it with 1/4 cup of maple syrup, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 2 tbspn yellow

Cool! Pics when you get it of course...


Took one ,load of branches out, one load of bags of leaves, grass, and pine needles, and one load of just junk; bad lumber, old blinds, rusty chicken wire, etc.

Now I'm double smoking a ham with a mix of pecan and hickory.

Hi, in an effort to increase my collection of Uberti 1860 models yesterday I ordered from Taylor the Uberti 1860 Civilian model:

http://www.taylorsfirearms.com/hand-guns/blackpowder-revolvers/1860-army-collection/1860-army-44-blue-finish-with-brass-backstrap.html

The revolver is due to arrive Thursday, gotta love Taylor shipping responsiveness.

When it arrives the revolver will be torn down and all the internal parts polished. A Wolff reduced power spring will be installed:

The arbor length will be fixed using a brass button. A brass rod has been machined to 0.410" ready for button cutoff:



If this revolver shoots well it may become my goto 1860 revolver for casual shooting. I like a brass backstrap and the lack of shoulder stock mounting screws.

I will report progress.

Regards,
Richard
