No. You have just encountered the infamous "Uberti Short Arbor". There are numerous threads here if you use the search function, for fixing this. Our own .45 Dragoon (Mike Brackett) specializes in fixing this (Goon's Gun Works) if you are not handy with tools and guns, or there are plenty of home-fixes complete with nice photos here.
And, welcome to Colt Country! ;)

Hi Kirk, where do you put the caps on those great looking arrows?


On the nipples, of course! ;)

For the moment, I have glue-on field points installed for target use. If I hunt with them I would use glue-on 2 blade broadheads

Those look like the arrows I used to buy. Nice work. :-*

Thanks, Hawg. I appreciate that.

That buck is a dandy, Scooby! And hats off to you for your generosity and mentoring attitude. It's because of folks like you that our past is allowed to live on. Maybe some day I'll get to crack a bottle and raise a glass with you. )l_

Very cool to see some hand crafted archery talent Capt. Those arrows look mighty fine. However, after seeing this post, I have some regret. I recently sold two Hickory sinew backed long bows and a slew of arrows fletched with wild turkey feathers. Thought I would have a more serious go at it, but Colt revolvers and lever rifles took on a stronger grasp. Figured someone else would at least put them to honest use. There just does not seam to be enough time to fit in all of my whims and wishes.

Thanks, Scooby. That means a lot to me.
You are correct about the time factor.  I have too many hobbies pulling at me from all different directions and they all want my time, money and attention. "Jack of all trades, master of none" is the land I live in as a result.

Something like that would be awesome for my Buckmark break barrel pistol!

Gorgeous pic, Scooby (as usual), and it seems like you've found one of the few places in God's Country that are left unspoiled by man.
I envy you.

Nice work...wish my rotator cuff would let me shoot a bow again

Try switching hands...if you shoot rightie, try a leftie bow or vice-versa.  Fred Bear did, due to losing a finger tip or two. He did alright...

I'm using a RW Bitz I purchased new a couple years ago. I got a nice deal on a well-used Bohning cresting tool and fabbed up a nice jig to go with it. Really enjoying making up woodies!

I think I had my rant when it happened. "Photogate" is done now and will forever remain a black smear on the internet. We can...and we must, rebuild. I've switched to Flickr and I'm not looking back. I'm also staying busy posting pictures.

Hard choice for me. But of course, you men already knew it would be something weird. So with that, I wish for an Alsop Navy revolver. If not that, I could go for a Joslyn,  a Wesson's & Leavitt's Patent Army, a Pettingill's Patent Army, or a Walch 12 shot Navy. Those ones would be pricy, so for simplicity sakes, I would be happy with with either a CSA copy of a Shawk & McLanahan, a Cofer, or a Dimick.

I am lucky enough to own a couple of Roots and a Whitney, but I could go for Uberti making a better quality version of those two shooters as well.

Man, you're going deep into left field, Scooby!
