    I don't know what lining a bore entails Gene it may be an option.
    I definitely want to try and send a few down range before anything.

    I saw rifling so shoot it first! If you decide on a re-line I've got a guy I can highly recommend!

    Its not a F Class. Shoot it. Bet it puts a whole magazine in an apple size hole as far as your old eyes can line up them buckhorns..

    You have to send it off to someone who does it.  If your bore is "gravelly" it will restore it to pristine with no evidence on the outside.  I've had a couple of guns relined, a .22 and a .30 Mauser.  Not cheap, but very effective.

    44-40 care package will hit the mail on Friday.
    Don't give it to Wambli before then :p

    The gun will be a single shot to start. Carrier isn't picking up a round from the tube. Been checking on that doesn't seem like a bad fix. Did spray it down a bit yesterday to see if that may help.

    It is amazing what a bit of lube in the right place can do for an action.  I have an old pump shotgun who's action was locked up tight.  Not knowing the gun and finding little about it, I brought it to a shoot and @Big Al1  fiddled a bit, added a few drops of oil to the correct place and it has functioned perfectly since.

    Hopefully yours is an easy fix also

    Ron  A bit of shooting may loosen it up also.....if not at least I can make some noise.
    Sako much appreciated.
    Your winning out Wambli still isn't talking to me and.........,

    That would be great.
    I do like the sights

    Never had anything re-blued, but I had him re-line three for me and they shoot great!

    You need to take the gun apart. Run a bronze brush of the appropriate size up and down the tube magazine (of course after you take out the spring and follower) same way as you cleaned the bore of years of crud.  Clean out the spring and flush the whole thing with break cleaner first and then CLP.  You MIGHT need a new mag spring.  The old  one is probably weak.

    or you can leave it broken and send it to me...😘
    Heck Wambli why would he do that?  He can leave it broken and not even clean it and send it to me.

    By what I was reading it may be the bottom of the carrier that is slightly worn and would need to be built back up.
    The cartridge isn't even starting out of tube.
    The spring seems to have good pressure.
  • WeatherbyWeatherby Senior Member Posts: 4,953 Senior Member
    Stopped by and found dies .,...yeah.
    Visited that Ruger too.
    Kid I hunt with has been looking for a  357  I think this may be it.
    I was sorely tempted to buy just for the grips.



  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 7,928 Senior Member
    Nice grips!

    That old Colt needs some TLC is all. NIB guns are ready to roll immediately. Anyone can run them. It takes someone special to resurrect a treasure.

     If you don’t buy that Ruger I’ll never speak to you again.  Those grips are worth over $200 maybe over $300 by themselves.

    Our math is about the same..........250-3+ is what I had them pegged at.
    trouble is I'd want to keep them so no deposit no return
    The guns at 400 now but the topstrap has been drilled and tapped. He's had the gun .awhile now and even at a gunshow.
    It's kind of a consignment gun and I told the store owner if he drops it 50 I'd have a buyer. I don't think he's talked to the guy yet.
    I'm working on it..................crickets
  • sakodudesakodude Senior Member Posts: 4,760 Senior Member
    I've got a set of the black laminate grips you could swap those out for.

  • sakodudesakodude Senior Member Posts: 4,760 Senior Member
    Shall I add them to the care package :)

    Sako
  • WeatherbyWeatherby Senior Member Posts: 4,953 Senior Member
    I'm trying to get the gun for a kid I hunt with so thanks but not yet.
    Definitely appreciated................... and I may have to kill him if he sells the ones on it.
    Luckily I bought a Colt and it doesn't bother me anymore......if you know what I mean.....LOL

    Put the black ones on it for the kid & keep the others for yourself.
    Problem solved.

    yes Ron's much better............I like the kid so already told him to get it and why
  • Old RonOld Ron Senior Member Posts: 4,461 Senior Member
    If you like him that much ......why is 50 bucks stopping you ?
    Snooze you loose. If you bought it right away you would have had time to think about the grips. You could take 200 off the gun & he would be real happy & so would you.
    Again problem solved !   lol

    I sent him a picture today and told him it's a good deal even without the 50 off.The day I picked up the colt is when I inquired about that.

    Buy it put the black grips on & lower the price & then he will really be happy ......& you will too & not be going oh crap I should have jumped on that. Or I'll never see a deal on those grips again. You could tell the seller to throw in another set of grips with it. You can do it .

    Talked to a LGS today who has one.  He says the lifter is the reason most of them won't work, and it's impossible to get parts for them.  He says the lifter has two little point extensions on it (which is my interpretation of what he said) and they almost always break off.  I asked him if he could weld on these tiny points, and he said it might be possible to weld a strip across the lifter and file down the points.  He said the extractors is why so many of them can be bought at a reasonable cost; one that works sells for $2k.

    Probably same idea, but for a larger frame for a .44.  Out of stock, which LGS indicated.

    Those guys if they say it is in stock on the computer when you call to order then they say it is out of stock too. Hard to get parts some days. Tipping that wouldn't be to bad but it would take a lot of file & fits if you don't have the specs on the part. That is a winter project.

    The 44 is a medium frame.
    They don't break off they wear down. They can be built back up.
    Information at times is only as good as the source. Look at the part I don't think your LGS guy is the best source.

    Perhaps not, but I trust him.
