Howdy!

Yup, teh Italians killed the repro Schofield when they lengthened the cylinder and took out the gas check to accommodate it. :(

I cannot get more than 4-5 BP rounds out of mine before it freezes solid. Usually, the third shot has to have the cylinder rotated by hand.

:( :(

My second last one was a Stoeger import. The cylinder chambers were smaller than the forcing cone and rifling. It might as well have been a smoothbore!! (I theorized I could have tried minnie ball bullets with hollow bases to expand up, but never tracked any molds down before I sold it...)

:( :( :(
