Walkers & Dragoons / Re: Uberti Whitneyville Dragoon
« on: September 16, 2019, 11:25:59 PM »
If that is the case Mike it gives me an idea. Dixie Gun Works sells a Military 3rd Dragoon with cut outs on the recoil shield for a shoulder stock. I would assume the gripframe also has the appropriate notch. One could install a Walker arbor and a Walker cylinder and barrel to make a shoulder stocked Walker-Dragoon hybrid. That would be pretty awesome.

Jim that is a mighty fine looking Dragoon you got.

I thought you might be interested in this, I found a W-H Dragoon with the screws not going all the way through. They do exist but I guess Uberti doesn't make them that way anymore. Or maybe they will go back to doing it that way next time and the ones like you have will become collectible, who knows.

P.S. I also noticed Taylor's has changed their photo of the W-H Dragoon to show the screws going through. I am actually quite impressed that they listened.

I shot my Pedersoli Lightning Rifle .44-40 yesterday with bp loads. I hit a steel plate offhand at 150 yards, I couldn't believe it. It was a fairly small plate too. I would guess no bigger than 18".

I shoot my bp guns often but only occasionally do I give reports. The reason I don't give more reports is because I am bad at posting photos and feel like if I don't give a photo it will come off as lazy.

Weren't some of the W-H Dragoon's made with holes drilled all the way through? I know there were different grip styles, with some being rounded at the top like Walker's and some straight like the later Dragoon's. The Sig Series made 4 different versions of W-H Dragoon's that reflect these differences.

I sometimes shoot 3F in my .53 caliber Uberti Hawken rifle. It works fine but I am generally only loading around 55-65 grains and a .527" diameter round ball.

How about $3,000 for a Marlin 39a? I am glad I got my used one for $450.

I looked very carefully at these photos and I think they are not just stock photos, I think they are actual real guns.

They also have a selection of Model 95's:

Congrats! I like the old GU's too, very different from current Uberti's. I would say current Uberti's are probably better out of the box shooters, on average, but the old GU's have some neat features that you don't see on today's Uberti's.

 "I so like the 60 grip frame, I bought Uberti BS & TG on my second gen Colt SAA"

bigted, are you saying the Uberti 1860 Army gripframe will fit on a Colt 2nd Gen SAA? Was it easy or did it take fitting?

It would be funny if they made extra heavy after market springs for the repros. It would kinda make sense though.

It looks great. I like all the trigger guards be they brass, steel or plated. My favorite is probably the silver plated squareback but they all look neat.

Walkers & Dragoons / Walker video
« on: June 24, 2019, 08:50:22 PM »
This is a Walker video you might not have seen, since it does not have the word "Walker" in the title. At about 5 or 6 minutes in there is a chronograph test.
