    Go to the Single Action Shooting Society web site and look at the “archives” section and open June 2008 page 38 and July 2008 page 34 and you will find excellent articles on how to diagnose and cure problems with a C&B Pietta gun.

    My guns have all had this treatment and are as reliable as an (unmentionable) suppository hand gun.

    Slix Shot nipples, a lighter main spring and Remington #10 caps

    Make a very reliable combination.

    These are Larsen E. Pettifogger's publications about tuning the Pietta (2 parts) and the Uberti (4 parts) from 12 years ago. The .pdf files will probably be the best downloads for the average computer. Get them on your machine as they have become scarce online before.

    It's free.

    Sourdough, Thanks for those links about the Pietta C&B revolvers. Already downloaded and waiting to be read.
