Originally posted by Tinker Pearce ( his handy work )

This started life as an unfinished kit-gun that was missing the locking-bolt. It's an 1849 replica, probably an ASM, but it had no marks, no proofs, nothing. I decided it needed to be a .22. I cut the barrel and reshaped it to resemble the 'Avenging Angel' style of gun- though this one is more of an 'Irritable Cherub...'  I sleeved the barrel with rifled barrel-liner and cut a forcing-cone, then turned down the back of the cylinder, bored it through and sleeved the chambers.

I had to modify a locking bolt from an Uberti, but eventually it worked out. The breech-plate is half-hard 5160 spring steel with a loading port cut in one side. I want to mount a rebounding firing pin, but there's not a lot of room...

I'd set this one aside for a few months, but now I really want to get it done.

This was the first gun I made from scratch in my shop. Made from mild steel and 5160 spring-steel with a rifled barrel-liner. In .45 ACP/.45 Cowboy Special. I originally intended to round the gun off considerably, but after test-firing I decided I really shouldn't take any more weight off the gun. At 22 ounces it's, uh, 'exciting' to shoot with full-power .45 ACP.  I've put a few hundred rounds through it, and still shoot it occasionally.

Queasy Dillo

here was my version of a shoulder holster


And with your indulgence ( not wishing to hijack your thread )
and given credit to you and others where credit is do ... Smiley




Major,

I just found this and wanted to know if you could make another to fit my pistol.  I've had three other "leather smiths" botch up holsters for me and all I want is something simple like yours.

You can message me or answer on this topic.

Thanks.

4T ..I am honored you like my design and would wish one ....

 Sadly arthritis in my hand precluded hand sewing much anymore.... I don't have a machine.
Here what we can do... I have the pattern for my Shopkeeper SAA
I can send that and perhaps someone local would sew it for you   Undecided

BTW it is  cross strap design , no buckles or constraining 2nd chest strap

I'll take it.  Thanks.  Just a simple pouch with a minimum of leather and no buckles is exactly what I'm looking for.

Major2 posted this in-progress, but I finished it this afternoon so I thought I'd share- Here's the gun as I first saw it-


- and here's the finished .22 Conversion. It's a true five-shooter as you can rest the firing pin safely between case heads.



This isn't the final blueing; I did 90% of the prep then cold-blued so I can test it on the range. If everything works out I'll do a proper finish.

Major 2,  If you could spare a second copy of the pattern I would like to have a copy. Would be willing to compensate you for your trouble.  I have an Uberti OT in .44 SpL with a barrel cut down to 3 3/8 inches that sure would look good in a shoulder rig like that.
Thank you for the consideration.

M2,  Sorry about that. In my old age a lot of things slip my mind (what's left of it) these days. I do appreciate your efforts.

If you need anything else just let me know.
