I modified my opening post to include , they,( Wolff )did not have a specifuc spring
for an S&B. As I don't have any Remingtons to compare the spring dimensions,
I'll measure this one and let you all know what one will be recommended. (T^

It should be about a week.
The Dragoon speaks with a voice of thunder.
Very satisfying to shoot.

(...blah, blah, blah...)Even back then, as now, it is the Victors who write the History Books, with 20/15 Hindsight! So History is always distorted!!!

Bull shit.  Anybody can write a book about anything in this country.  Pull your head out and take a look around.  It's possible that even you can learn something.  Or maybe not...

Clever of you West T, I think I'll copy that.
Almost sold mine cause didn't think I would shoot it, but why not, right.
When do you expect the second, 2nd.

Dear Friends,

Is that the reason why you have never read any Civil War history?

Dear Friends,
            It will be no surprise to anyone, to learn, that since I am no fan of Brass framed guns, AND that Copies of the Colt design DO NOT make me quiver with excitement!.. I like "Stout-Hearted Loads, and my "Medical Examiner's Special," would quickly spell the demise of any Confederate Copy,and would probably stretch out a steel framed Colt as well!  I shall Always be an "Un-Reconstructed Rebel," as far as my 19th. Century Politics are concerned.(  The quote of General Lee's that I really admire,was what he said to the Senator or Congressman, who sent (Long may General Robt. E Lee live in hallowed Memory!) for the then Lt.Col Lee, to offer him the overall command command of the entire Union Army. Robt E.Lee turned to this Gentleman, and  said, "I never thought I would see the day, when a President of the United States, would mobilize an Army to invade his own country!"  Which would seem to imply that he realized even then, that Abe Lincoln was an un-Principled Blaguard! I also wish that Mr. Booth had NOT caught his spur in the draperies of Uncle Abe's Box,in Fords Theatre, and had NOT broken his ankle in making his escape!  Who knows, he might then have made good his escape, from the soldiers sent to apprehend him! Even back then, as now, it is the Victors who write the History Books, with 20/15 Hindsight! So History is always distorted!!!

The marker was a joke. I told friends that I took the Dragoon to the range along with a .44 magnum.

That's pretty neat.

What's with the marker?

Well in a few days I'll have in possession the second of two ASM #2 dragoon revolvers.  Not sure why two seemed to be a good number. I am anxious to have both in my hands. The photo is the first

Dear Friends,
            I guess I have been lucky!  Never had to replace any springs  on ANY of my Remington's since I bought 'em in Oct. 1st.2011,(Betsina.)  April 26th 2012, Clementina.) and Dec. 15th. 2012.(Sophia.) I did have squirreled away some spare Main Springs from the Twins, and so now I have about six or Seven spare Bolt & Trigger springs, and three or four Main Springs tucked away among my Gun Paraphenalia!  All three  of the Triplets still have all their original springs! 2011 & 2012 must have been,"good,"years for Remington Springs!
            When I shot regularly with the Gunfighting groups, and was slamming back hammers with my thumb, to prolong the Fantasy that such a thing as "Fast Draw," existed!  I used to have to replace Bolt and Trigger springs in my Uberti Clones quite often! (I had a pair of 4,3/4"Barelled Colt repiica's in .44-40!!  I have to admit, those twins did come out of their holsters very slickly!!!  Fantasy but Fun!
