Gunsmithing/Tuning/Parts & Repairs / Re: BP Gunsmithing tips & tricks

Another trick to keep screws from backing out....put a short length of fishing line in the threaded hole, then turn the screw in, snip off any excess line. This is kinda like the nylon inserts in threaded nuts.

If you are bothered by a small screw that wants to keep backing out in use, rather than investing in a bottle of LokTite ($$) use a drop of fingernail polish on the threads.

Richard, my only issue with the '51 Navy (or it's "fantasy big bore Pietta brother") is the grip...the 60 Army has the best grip for my hand.

"Kinda like it, don't ya, pilgrim?"

Hi Kirk, sure do! However, any and every BP revolver being shot automatically becomes my favorite. Of course, the 1851 which in my opinion is the best BP revolver ever designed and it will always at the top of my BP revolver love list.

Richard

Hi Jordan, I am so sorry for your loss. Hope it turns up for you.

There must be something in the time/space continuum, first the Dragoon is lost in the mail and now your loss?

Regards,
Richard

Very glad to gear that the Dragoon is treating you well. I knew it would. Steller review.
On a more, sour note. The 62 is no longer with me. We came home one night to a break in. Asshats took that (it wasn't in the safe, I'd been to the range that day)and a bunch of family jewelry along with any fuel I had in 5gal jugs. My hope is that it turns up local.
