A bit off subject BUT I like hot (uncomfortably so) to do fast draw holsters.  I have often wondered of alcohol would have the same affect??  Some of what I have read by Chuck Burrows would indicate otherwise though. Heat hardins and alcohol just dries the leather?

To actually harden the leather permanently it's the heat that does it and that does not occur until it's over 140 ͦ F and does not make the change on the molecular level until 160 ͦ F. Under those temps even hot water only hardens via displacing the oils and fats in the leather as does alcohol and other solvents.

As for stretching yes alcohol will work fine but will definitely require re-conditioning, but the down side is it may over dry the leather to the point that even re-conditioning may not work without some damage - bottom for me is to use solvents including alcohol as little as possible, water while slower is generally overall the better option. albeit even that can cause damage that may be unrepairable. IMO doing leather repair is one of the best teachers I found over the last 50 years that there is for finding out what does and does not work.

You got an original stock at a very good price!

Does it have any cracks or checks?

My best,

Got lucky and picked up a $33 replacement butt stock for my NM rifle.  I have been shooting this gun quite a bit and have been concerned with damaging the crack-free origional stock.  Any Pards out there switch out their stocks just to preserve the old stock from enevitable dings and damage during use?

I am pretty sure that was orange juice. But never liked it anyways. I do love some Bacon though... Smiley

To the best of my knowledge, no open tops were ever produced.  The conversions, which were made up entirely of Italian parts, were a short lived production - a handful of '51's and a couple of '60's.  I have one of the '51's and have been told that fewer than 35 were ever produced.  Don't know how the '60's were marked, but the '51's were marked both USPFA and USFA.  Mine is a USFA.
