You can add that little piece of welt to any pattern. Don't know if Will's pattern shows it or not. To my recollection every original Meanea holster I've seen has it as well as some of the other makers of the northwest area. The Al Furstnow rig I recent posted a picture of also has the small bit of welt at the top of the main seam.

In 1990, I made two cheyenne holsters from a picture of one in a 1980's Cowboy Outfitters catalog or so I thought.....  They finished out a little wide because of my measurements and pattern design.  This was before Packing Iron was published.  Even after getting my copy of PI, I did not notice the small section of welt in the trigger guard area created by Meanea.  Then reading a posting in this forum about Meanea holsters and that welt, did I then go back an re-examine the photos closer.

The main question is --- does the Will Ghormley Cheyenne pattern utilize the welt?  If yes, does anyone know where to get a set of Will's patterns, new or used?  I have checked the internet all over.  One shop had the pattern for $14 with $18 shipping, that is not for me.

I have recently bought 5 of Will present pattern designs from Tandy and really like the final fit of his patterns.  That is why I would like his Cheyenne package but not for $30+.

An alternative question/request is --- can someone show a picture of the welt shape and its' length measurement?  With that and the Stohlman - " How to make Holsters" booklet, I should be-able to work it into one of Will's existing patterns or my redesign.

Any info appreciated.

If you go to "Darksiders Den" or "Storm" and look at previous posts over the years, you will find plenty of information from those who have shot Walkers--Colts, Ubertis, & ASMs. You can then decide if this is the right gun to start your blackpowder experience with. Wink

I fell in love with those stag grips when I first came across the gun.  In my opinion, they are the best looking stag grips I have seen.

Most USFA's I have seen have the three line patent date, but I have one in the 25XXX range with two lines.  Just a regular CC/DB 4-3/4" .45 Colt.  Did USFA use the two line date often?

This thread makes me feel better.  I have 22421 with a cone firing pin, but the knurling I thought looked questionable.  According to the info above it is apparently USFA 1st gen hammer.

Yes sir, this learning curve can be expensive.  Good thing I don't love my money.

Some 1867 Spencers were cut for the long blade extractor but the serial number on your action makes this a oddity ,can you post a photo of the cut at the top of the action for the extractor.does your action show any sighns of  ever being a complete rifle ,I have a action with a serial number of almost 100 above your action that I am sure was never finished, but it was cut for the short blade extractor and came with the Spencer cut-off and short blade lower block with extractor,nothing else.These Spencer sporting rifle are a study in them selves ,would be interested on any imformation any one else has on these

Major, it was C. Jack Lewis who used to write about the old cowboy actors. I enjoyed his articles as it brought another dimension to the magazine. I also have been generally pleased with GOTOW over the years. I think Dennis Adler has been an asset and find his material well written and researched, and his contacts within the industry are a bonus.Since this is really the only "cowboy shooting" magazine left, I hope people support it so it doesn't go away like some of the other decent publications like SHOOT magazine. Then we will all be complaining that no one publishes this type of periodical.
