Ditto for Uberti stock cones.
Depends ,can it go to full cock , or does it bind against it? If the cylinder binds against the forcing cone, the wedge needs to be loosened just a tad.
I put it in half cock and turned the cylinder through all the chambers a few times. Held the gun up to the light to see if I saw light. So far when one of the chambers is lined up with the breach I see 0 light coming through. Honestly the thinnest feeler gauge I've got is .015 and idk if I could get it through their. Won't try tonight on account of the gauges are down stairs in the garage and I don't wanna wake the dog up. Seems buttery smooth though so I'm pretty happy with it. Thinking about having it sent to you since your so highly recommended to see what you got to say about er. After I ordered it I read some stuff full of pictures with Pietta factory defects and I was worried but she looks fine to me. Although what would I know. Until now all I've ever had was two different cartridge firing double action swing arm revolvers
I'm still wondering is the bag full of oil from the factory or what?
They come that way from the factory. Figure these guns ship from Italy to the USA.
I take a paper towel or rag and wipe down gun.
I figured it was a petroleum based product so I will make sure it is completely removed before firing. With my work schedule this will have to wait since I'm doing 9 hrs 6 days a week.
Jackrabbit1957. It being a Pietta most likely brand new the arbor should be okay correct??
Yea Ive always loved the case hardened stuff looks good on shotgun frames too
I wonder if the 21 inside the square means 2021
That's exactly what it means
not sure what I would be looking at. Never owned one of these. Gotta brushup on the terminology
The arbor is the large shaft that the cylinder slides onto. There is much talk about the "short" arbors among the makers of these replica revolvers i.e., Uberti, ASM, Pietta etc. There are many threads on the High Road and other forums about this issue. Jackrabbit1957 and or Mike, 45D of GoonGunworks would be more suited to explain this in detail than I. They both have addressed this issue at length here on THR. Bottom line is, the arbor needs to be the correct length to remedy a revolver beating itself to death over a period of time. Your next question might be, why do the makers of these gun not address the problem with short arbors? That is a rhetorical question unfortunately, but it is a good question. I'm told that Pietta has addressed this issue and that for the past 10 years or so they, generally speaking, have corrected the arbor length.
I understand Jackrabbit1957. He may indeed have had a bad day. That happens anywhere
Thanks for clarifying that.
The pawl of the hand assembly is pushing the cylinder forward if working correctly, so on half-cock ya need to push the cylinder backwards to see what you've actually got for clearance.
Any aftermarket grips you get will have to be hand fit. Take off grips may be so far off you can't make them work.
