    GREAT WESTERN 44 SPECIAL

    Want to thank everyone for the feedback especially from Sack Peterson. Learned a great deal about Great Western Arms history both positive and negative. The 44 Spl. I have is a very tight ,well put together gun. No heavy horsepower loads for this 44 Spl. In fact 99% of my loads are all out of...

    long frame screws prevent operation of 3 screw Blackhawk

    Tool your advice and, primarily with small hard Arkansas stones, smoothed both the hammer and trigger surfaces where they meet at full cock. The screws were tightened all the way without excessive torque. Still experienced the same situation until I took a slight turn, loosening the hammer screw...

    long frame screws prevent operation of 3 screw Blackhawk

    This has been done allowing the gun to work. However, am looking for a permanent fix and hope to accomplish this by shortening one to four screws.

    long frame screws prevent operation of 3 screw Blackhawk

    Have switched the screws around and that is how I got it to finally work (when not fully tightened down). In fact my next move is to shorten the screws one at a time trying each one before shorting the next. Hopefully this will work. Appreciate your input. Have a great day. Louis

    long frame screws prevent operation of 3 screw Blackhawk

    This is the first time I have run into this problem and can’t find the solution. When tightening the 5 frame screws on one my OM three screw Blackhawks, as tight as I can, the hammer will cock to its firing position. However, when pressing the trigger it fails to fire. The trigger travels...

    Ruger No. 1 38-55

    Picked up one of my favorite calibers,a No.1 in 38-55. Serial # places it in the 1989 era. This could be considered NIB. Not familiar with the No.1's having not owned one for a number of years. Is this an unusual caliber and also, what is the rarity of a No. 1 in 38-55? .......Thanks
