Firearm Forum Question: What is a Reasonable Price for an Extra Ruger Cylinder

Ask A Firearms Question:
Can you give me some guidance on how much I should pay for an Extra Ruger Revolver Cylinder? 
Thank you Karl Zicon.

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
Always remember, the market drives the price, i.e. Economics 101, Law of Supply and Demand.

Saying that, Ruger Cowboy Single Action Revolver Cylinders are in two general categories, the original 3-Screw Version plus that next generation, and the current models which are mainly manufactured by third parties like Davidson and Lipsey.

If you can find an extra or replacement cylinder the Ruger Cowboy 22LR and 22 Magnum are the most commonly available and run about $125.00 on eBay. The 357 Magnum and 44 Magnum are going between $95.00 and $125.00. The 45 Long Colt (LC) is around $75.00. The 45 acp goes for around $125.00. The 41 Magnum and 44-40, which are rare can be upwards of $175.00. The later version 9mm and 30 Caliber are $125.00 to $200.00.
Special Note: Lately the 357 Magnum has been popular because these can be bored out to accept a 9mm and 44-40. See pictures of some Ruger cylinders below:
Ruger 22 LR (Long Rifle) Cylinder -
Ruger 357 Magnum Cylinder -
Ruger 45acp and 45 LC (Long Colt) Cylinders -
Ruger Factory Blackhawk Original 45acp Cylinder -

Bearcat and Bisley Ruger Cylinders often are engraved -


If you are shopping for an extra or replacement cylinder, be patient, and check eBay frequently to find what you want.

The double Action Ruger Cylinders (all calibers) are around $125.00, make sure these are complete with the ejector rod.
Parts of a Double Action Revolver -

The prices above do not include the old Ruger Black Powder Revolvers, or conversion cylinders which can still be purchased new for around $230.00.
Ruger 45 Long Colt Black Powder Cylinder -
Commentary -
The older Ruger cylinders are getting harder to find and more expensive. Double Action Revolver Cylinders are NOT interchangeable with Cowboy style Single Action Handgun Cylinders.

Disclaimer -
The prices above are a guideline based on current market at time of the post.

==> My recommendation is -
Make damn sure the Ruger cylinder you purchase is for your Ruger Revolver.

Firearm Forum Question: What Kind of Leather Conditioner to Use on Rifle Slings and Holsters

Ask A Firearms Question:
What kind of Leather Conditioner should I Use on my Rifle Slings and Holsters
Thank you Betty the Boop.

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
The best product to use is Virgin Olive Oil.
Reason, Olive Oil does not contain water. Many leather conditioners contain water.
Water inhibits rust and corrosion.
Simply apply, let stand for 15 minutes, wipe excess off.
I recommend applying the Virgin Olive Oil to all your leather slings and holsters every 6-months.
You can apply the olive oil to the inside of a holster, it will also help keep moisture off the handgun.



Commentary -
Although there is a lot of hype about leather conditioners Virgin Olive Oil is all natural and will not harm either the sling, holster, or firearm.

==> My recommendation is -
Virgin Olive Oil for all your Firearm Leather Accessories.

Firearm Forum Question: What's the Difference Between an Open and Closed Bolt

Ask A Firearms Question:
Can you please tell me what the difference is between a Closed and Open Bolt? 
Thank you Louis Lewis.

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
Yes, the primary difference is whether the weapon is firing in a semi automatic mode (the person pulls the trigger each time to fire one round through the weapon), or the weapon is full auto (when the trigger is pulled and held the weapon continues to fire until empty).

Generally speaking an Open Bolt weapon such as a MAC10 or Uzi is a full auto weapon (fully automatic, i.e. Machine Gun).

The Closed Bolt weapon is generally a Semi Automatic.

The following two YouTube Videos demonstrate an Open Bolt Weapon Firing in Full Auto (Machine Gun).

YouTube Video: Demonstrating Open Bolt Machine Guns for Beginners -

YouTube Video: Firing the MK 46 Mod 1 Lightened SAW -



Commentary -
Although Full Auto Weapons (Machine Guns) may be fun to shoot, they are a waste of ammo.

==> My recommendation is -
Avoid owning full auto weapons.
If you plan on purchasing a full auto weapon do your homework. A Federal Tax Stamp and other provisions are required.

Firearm Forum Question: Can a Shotgun Barrel Chamber Be Bored Out

Ask A Firearms Question:
Simply, can a shotgun chamber be bored out to accept a longer shotgun shell, i.e. from 2 3/4-Inch to 3 1/2-Inch Magnum? 
Thank you Chef Newberger.

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
NO

See explanation below ...










Both Shotguns and Rifles are chambered in certain size and caliber ammo; or shotgun shells for a reason.
The pressure and blowback gases are extreme when a round goes off.
This is why the metal at the chamber (bore) is thicker than the metal at the end of barrel.

For more on Shotgun Pressure ...
Issued as a Guideline from GunDigest:
SAAMI has organized U.S. Gun Manufacturers to adhere to a set of standards for service pressure, and all modern models of guns made in the US are proofed or tested to make sure they withstand these pressures.
Service pressure is predicated on the diameter of the bore (its gauge) and the length of the chamber (in inches).
More information is available on GunDigest website at -

See pictures below ....






Commentary -
Some barrels are interchangeable but this is not the same as modifying an existing barrel. Also there are aftermarket barrels that may accommodate the shooters needs.

==> My recommendation is -
Do not modify a barrel by drilling out the bore size to accommodate a different size round or length of shell.

Firearm Forum Question: Understanding The Gun Control Issues, an Overview

Ask A Firearms Question:
I am having problems with this whole Gun Ownership Debate. Can you please sum up what the hell is going on with my 2nd Amendment and these so-called Gun Rights issues? 
Thank you Charles (Charlie) Everett Rhodes.

Published for Readers Information and Content Only
Not a Legal Opinion

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
I will try.

First it is important to forget what bill is introduced in Congress for the simple reason we have 3 individual but distinct branches of the government:
The Congress (U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate); The President (White House); and Judicial (Federal Courts).

In Congress bills are introduced either by the Senate or the House. If one has something different then a caucus is held between the 2 houses to come up with a final bill. Sometimes, one may pass a bill but it must go to the other for approval. If both houses in Congress approve a final version of the bill, then goes to the President for approval and signature. It then becomes the law of the land until a Federal Court determines otherwise.

Now onto the general outline of the Gun Control Issues:
The two major parties (Democrats and Republicans) seriously differ on Gun Control.
Basically the Democrats want the following passed into legislation and they are not willing to compromise on their issues, thus we get deadlock and nothing passed.

At issue are the following items -

1) The Democrats want the Assault Rifle Ban back with even stricter provisions. This would prevent, in most cases, items such as an AR15 or AK-47 sale. 

2) The Democrats want to limit the size of Magazines for any weapon to a maximum of 10-rounds.

3) The Democrats want to ban anyone on the Terrorist Watch List and/or the No-Fly List to purchase a firearm of any type. The Republicans oppose this primarily because they say some people get on the list and don't belong there. The Republicans want a person on any LIST to have the right to a hearing by a Federal Magistrate or Judge to get their name off the list. Democrats have opposed this even though some members of Congress have been placed on the No Fly List. 

4) The Democrats want to make it mandatory that ALL Gun Sales must have a background check. Simply this closes the loop hole on gun sales at Gun Shows and Online Sales. The primary problem with this is it prevents a person from selling their own privately owned firearm to another person. It also may be interpreted by the courts that you cannot inherit a firearm without a background check.

=> Most Republicans with help from the NRA (National Rifle Association), and GOA (Gun Owners of America) oppose these changes.

Note: To get a bill passed requires 60 votes in the U.S. Senate. This again is why the 2016 Presidential Election is so important. Hillary Clinton supports everyone of these measures, while Donald Trump opposes most of them.

=== > This posting is NOT a Legal Opinion nor does it claim to cover or explain all the Gun Issues facing America today.

Caution Readers: When viewing Internet sites such as Yahoo News and Google News -or- Listening to News Broadcast on the TV, be aware that almost every broadcast from CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News is tainted mostly leaning toward a Liberal agenda. Newscasters today cannot report the NEWS accurately they must slant it in their favor. Some of these news casts are outright lies and fabrications. One of the problems with sites like Yahoo News is they pick up news from other sites and published it without checking the content or accuracy.

Firearm Forum Question: Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Case on Firearms, a Win for Anti-Gun Supporters

Ask A Firearms Question:
Can you share any information on the recent Supreme Court ruling banning certain types of weapons including assault rifles? 
Thank you Benjamin R. Suncrest.

Published for Readers Information and Content Only
Not a Legal Opinion

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
The U.S. Supreme Court, currently short one judge, ruled on Monday, June 20, 2016, in a split decision 4-4 that they would NOT hear an appeals case banning Assault Weapons passed in Connecticut and New York.
This puts a serious blow to Gun Owners.
It allows the laws passed in Connecticut and New York to stand, at least for now.
This decision comes just after the Orlando shootings by an ISIS follower and born U.S. Radicalized Muslim.
The Connecticut weapons (gun) ban was passed after the Sandy Hook Shootings by Governor Dannel Malloy in April 2013. Expanding on an earlier assault weapons ban in the state, it banned more than 100 types of firearms along with magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a similar ban in New York.

This is a serious blow to Gun Owners and the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, The Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Anti-Gun Liberal loons are just thrilled with themselves. President Obama said. "This is a start but does not go far enough."

Not covered in the news, it does, however, support the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution concerning States Rights.

IMPORTANT: This is why this years presidential election is so damn important. If you are a Gun owner or plan on becoming a Gun Owner or someone in you family is a Gun owner you cannot allow Hillary Clinton to become President of the United States.
Reason: The next president will be appointing new judges, possible as many as 3 to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The democrat agent is to abolish the 2nd Amendment and take away everyone's guns, regardless of what they say. There methodology is to slowly erode your gun rights, and they have been very successful since 1928. In short, Liberals never pass up the opportunity to create havoc among voters by using a tragedy to expand their Liberal agenda.
The First Amendment gives us the Right to Free Speech and Religion, but remember the Second Amendment insures the First and all others cannot be taken away by an out of control government.

Firearm Forum Question: Alternative Method to Purchasing or Owning a NFA Weapon

Ask A Firearms Question:
It has come to my attention that a person does not have to purchase an NFA weapon from a Licensed FFL but can in fact build their own, is this true? I am considering building my own Suppressor.
Thank you Johnny Come Lately.

Published for Readers Information and Content Only
Not a Legal Opinion
Answer :
Blog Administrator -
Yes and No, depends on the weapon or device.
But to your specific question about Suppressors, at the moment, Yes, you can build your own but you will need the approval from the BATF/ATF first, and still pay the $200.00 Tax Stamp.
Be careful, you cannot build the suppressor or weapon first, then get approval, You must submit on ATF Form 1 a request to build the device. A simple sketch must be submitted. When approval is granted, you can then build the weapon or device according to your sketch, specifications, and parts list. When approved, you will receive a Federal Tax Stamp, that you sent a money order for $200.00 with Form 1 and your sketch.
Form 1 can be filed as an Individual, Gun Trust, LLC, or Corporation.
Here is the LINK to the ATF Form 1 online:

Form 1 also includes AOW, any other weapon.
Example: You modified a shotgun or rifle that the barrel and/or overall length is less than permitted. You can fill out a Form 1 and pay the $200.00 Tax Stamp.

Important: If the device does not work, you can not build another device without another submittal and an additional $200.00 for a new Tax Stamp. If you are NOT sure what you are doing, avoid this, at minimum contact the ATF and ask any questions before you start.

Very Important: It is illegal to own a Machine Gun or Machine Pistol (fully automatic weapon). These require a special FFL License and a Tax Stamp for each item.

Also, see this LINK about Suppressors -

Commentary -
If you have a question on an AOW, Suppressor, or any of the Forms 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 do not hesitate to call the local ATF office for guidance.

==> My recommendation on Building a NEW Suppressor is -
to Avoid this, just buy a Manufactured Suppressor through a Licensed FFL in your area.

Firearm Forum Question: Federal Court Ruling on Concealed Carry Permits

Ask A Firearms Question:
Someone told me Gun Rights Activist (Pro Gun / Gun Owners) lost a battle in Federal Court over carrying a concealed weapon, what can you tell me?
Thank you James McMillin.


Published for Readers Information and Content Only
Not a Legal Opinion

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
There was a ruling in Federal Court, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled:
No Right to Concealed Gun Carry.

See more below ....







Essentially in a divided court, by a vote of 7-4, the 9th Federal Appeals Court on Thursday, June 9, 2016, stated that there is NO Constitutional Right to Carry a Concealed Weapon.
The court stated ....
"The protection of the Second Amendment - whatever the scope of that protection may be simply does not extend to the carrying of concealed firearms in public by members of the general public."
These action and ruling was brought upon by Gun Owners in two California counties challenged the requirement that they show "good cause," as defined by county sheriffs, before they could get concealed carry permits.
The court declined to say whether the Constitution protects openly carrying a gun in public. It said that question was not at issue in the case.

The court claimed its decision on the following ...
Thursday's majority opinion traced the rights of gun owners from medieval England to the founding of the United States and through the Civil War, finding that local laws almost universally prohibited carrying concealed firearms in public.
In 1897, well after the adoption of the Second Amendment, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that "the right of the people to bear arms is not infringed by laws prohibiting the carrying of concealed weapons."
The appeals court said it followed the U.S. Supreme Court's method of looking to history to resolve gun rights issues.
"Because the Second Amendment does not protect in any degree the right to carry concealed firearms in public, any prohibition or restriction a state may choose to impose on concealed carry including the requirement of 'good cause,' however defined is necessary allowed by the Amendment," the 9th Circuit said.
Many states have similar restrictions on concealed carry, and the lower courts are divided on whether they violate the Second Amendment. So far, however, the Supreme Court has declined to take up the issue in the wake of its landmark 2008 ruling that found a right to own a gun at home for self-defense.

Important: The 9th Circuit has jurisdiction over most of the Western Sataes, as shown below. If another Federal Court rules differently, it the would be decided by the Supreme Court which is currently short one judge.
