    I hope to do just that. If all goes well; my replacement will be waiting for me when I get home tonight.

    Well said. It's the "competitor" approach to guns vs. the "firearms enthusiast/gun lover" approach to guns. To one group it's just a tool for a job, to another the gun itself -- its use, heritage and history, finish, look and feel, and the pleasure of shooting it -- are the driving force. I'm not a competitor and use my many guns much more sparingly, but to each their own. We're all in this for our own reasons and our own enjoyment. My only gripe comes when originals get chopped up to make better "race" guns.

    Exchange complete! I’ll be keeping this one. But I do have some questions... maybe better suited to another thread...

    PM me if you need any help/suggestions/advice on enjoying your new beauty. I was new to this activity only three years ago, but I feel like I’ve learned an awful lot since then.

    The replacement is a shooter. A little sharp around the edges compared to the 1966 version I got. But certainly good. So far, I'm pleased with it. I doesn't seem to shoot as ridiculously high as what I expected. Though ironically; the sight notch could be deeper. Not so much to move the POA. But rather because when looking down the sights; there really isn't much channel at all. Nothing I can't fix though.

    I shot SASS for years. My Rugers are still as sound as ever! AA5D1430-7B94-452E-9B21-DFCB469411F4.jpeg
    Off topic and probably out of bounds with the picture.

    The last Uberti 1860 Army I handled (a few years ago) was able to easily take the LEE 200gr conical. The ASMs I've owned will take them with some jiggling. The Piettas weren't even close. The Uberti is a bit closer to authentic if you care about such things.
