No wonder there’s never any good ones for sale.

Never had a problem cocking a mk2 maybe through working with my hands over the years makes the hands strong or I had a good technique the only time I had an issue was when it went sick it was hard to cock jthen shooting over 900fps and making a strange sound on firing,  once it was serviced it was back to normal. The MK 3 is far easier to cock than the MK2 

I think I know where my old steel action went so that is off the table now 

I never thought getting an old greaser would be so hard 

Is the power adjustable on the one you sold Daz

I've always fancied a Greaser but then the servicing and button pushing reality kicks in and I'm reminded that technology (and the World) has moved on.

I think it's the same reason that I love shooting a black powder pistol, there's a certain satisfaction to actually hand-loading the cylinders instead of just slapping a magazine in there.

 

Saying that if I were Custer at Bighorn I'd take the .40 cal Glock and as many magazines as possible over a .44 black powder pistol....:grin:

I think that's why the old gunslingers used to pack about four pistols just incase.
