Thank you, regarding Ruger Old Army it works with little adjustment on the head. Mr Larsen said that he adopted our capper to ROA by filled little bit the head. We do not have ROA in Poland so I can't check.

Generally speaking I thing you can adjust the head size to any revolver. It is made for Remington New Army but it is thick enough that you can shape it as you wish. 

best regards,
Zbigniew

I've machined a dovetail in my Pietta to accept a Uberti lug. The Uberti dovetail has a very narrow included angle of 30 degrees and requires a special cutter. There might be an old thread with some pictures of what I did and there are certainly some threads from others about cutting dovetails with a hacksaw and triangular file.

Hi Quint,
Newbie black powder guy here as well but I know a wee bit about smithin.  On a gun that has the QC level of a Pietta, check a couple of things prior to makingbadjustmentsbto your front sights.

Check that the barrel end is in factbsquare with the barrel (as long as your barrel isn’t tapered).
If it is not square it can throw your shot off.

Check that your barrel is screwed tight into the frame. If not, it will effect the location of your front sight.

All else failing, go with the dovetailed sight, or accept your losses by returning the Piettas you have and get some guns with better quality.

Well I bought a Uberti dove tail lug to replace the soldered one that falls out of my Pietta . I'm sure someone else has done this and I would appreciate any suggestions , thoughts , observations , or common sense advice . In other words I have never cut a dove tail but it looks doable.

Thanks in advance

Hi Zbigniew,

Fantastic shooting on those targets!  No wonder you won first prize !!! _l

Do you know if your polish capper will work on the Ruger Old Army?
