Re: THE .44 SPECIAL IS ALIVE AND WELL! by JOHN TAFFIN

You have good taste, Fred. I have a model 24-3 just like that. I did have to put a taller front sight on it. In fact, I shot it at steel gongs just yesterday.

There is a commuter train that runs from about 40 miles south of Albuquerque to Santa Fe which is about 60 miles north of Albuquerque. It has happened on several occasions that the train has hit a cow while crossing Indian land. After all the thumping, the train stops, the rail employees get out and...

Grade 8s only achieve their strength rating when torqued to a specific value, however they are more brittle than grade 5s and tend to break where movement is allowed.

Try a powerful water-based degreaser like Dawn dishwashing soap first. I have often just used brake cleaner for tough tar spots on my truck, flushed with water and then re-applied wax. No harm done.

When the BH flat top .44 specials first came out, I bought one but the front sight at 3/8" was way too low to shoot the Skeeter load. I sent it back to Ruger requesting a 1/2" sight and after that it shot just fine without extremes in rear sight adjustment. Oddly enough, my Bisley .44 spl ...

I have a heavy barrel model 10 that I've only rarely shot. It is probably a police trade-in and the blue is worn mostly where a right-hander's trigger finger would rub against the frame. I have never shot it on paper but that sounds like an inviting thing to do.
