Re: Colt signature series
i have two signature series 1851 navies. mine are great. i had to replace the nipples real quick after i first got them, they didn't hold up long.
mine are 14 years old and i use to be able to shoot them every day. now work gets in the way. but mine have held up ok considering the heavy use they have had.
on both of them the cylinder arbor have loosen up. i got one fixed by kenny howell of r&d gun shop. the other hasn't been fixed as of yet but isn't near as loose as the other and still shoots ok.
also on one of mine the trigger sear and the notches on the hammer gave way, and were replaced with uberti parts. they fit ok but it isn't as smooth as it was with the colt parts.
my colts have been used alot. and despite the problems i have had i feel it was just wear and tear from extreme use
face your fear, accept your war, it is what it is
