She came in this evening while I was away! Its a beauty! I bought it from Traditions but its actually made by Pietta. Trigger pull is superb, under 2lbs at least. Locks up tight, wedge key is REALLY tight to the point where I have to use a smaller hammer and tap it into place. Good wood grain on it to. I was worried about the wood not being good when I ordered it but that was just me over worrying like always. Beautiful bore as well, shiny and crisp.

I'll get more pictures tomorrow in good lighting. Its already loaded for tomorrow after I do some work on the jeep motor we are rebuilding

I only got to shoot her 12 times but man was it fun! 15 grains turned out to be inaccurate but still could hit a man size target at 12 yards without any trouble. I did flinch on one shot and missed the body lol, god only knows why. Theres no recoil at all with 15 grains 3f goex.

I bumped it up to 20 grains 3f goex and boy she fell right into place!

15gr

20gr

30gr is real accurate for me in a Ruger old army. Make of powder matters little. It is not fussy.
