VERY timely! I just got into the whole Cast Iron cooking experience. I bought a Lodge pan and I'm in the hunt for a Griswold pan.

I seasoned the Lodge at 500 degrees, three times, with peanut oil. Seems to have done the trick as it is now like using teflon. Nothing sticks to it.

This week in Deer camp a friend brought a Griswold pan. The surface inside is MUCH smoother than the Lodge and it really did a nice job cooking many dishes. I guess there are a couple schools of thought on the interior surface...smooth or rough. I haven't enough experience to form an opinion.

I've been using my pan to cook dishes that go from the stove top, right into the oven. Can only do this with Cast Iron....

I hear you.  I had the same issue with cap and ball revolvers.  No good source of quality nipples or spare parts, hard to find the rite sized caps, hard to find black powder.  Nobody in this neck of the woods shot black powder period, much less cilvil war guns.  This was before the internet.  It was so much trouble I gave up on cap and ball revolvers for a number of years.  When the internet came of age and I learned of CAS and the wealth of information available I got interested in them again.

If you want a decent flintlock, I can heartily recommend TVM.  They get some flack because there not 100% period correct, or an exact copy of a "school".  They are however representative of the period and are well made and it's not hard to imagine a gunsmith in the era making one just like it.  They tend to lack moulding and carving, but I'm sure it could be added for the rite price.  Of course there a bit more expensive then a T/C, but it's money well spent in my opinion.

I would love to switch over to 45 Scofield, if nothing else just to have that extra round in the Henrys and Winchester's.

$800 worth of brass is all I need Cheesy


$800?  That would be about 3500 pieces of Starline brass.  T4T, in case you might be new to CAS, I must tell you that at matches someone will pick up your rifle brass and give it back to you  Grin

Oh, and like Pathfinder, I don't see where the seller gets USFA.

I'm no expert, but I think it's a parts gun. The seller also doesn't know what he has as can be seen from his descriptive line. 
It has a Colt barrel. It has the correct two line address for a 4.75" or shorter barrel.
It has a black powder frame with a Colt 1931 serial number. That's not right. If it's a Colt the serial number will also be on the trigger guard and backstrap under the grips.
It has a two line date line, but no prancing colt to mark it as a Colt.
The sides of the trigger guard look as though they have been narrowed (to remove Italian markings?).
Nice looking aged stags.

If the serial number was removed and a new one added that's illegal.

OK, am I missing something here? I don't see a mark anywhere that says USFA beyond the seller's description. The top of the barrel says Colt, and the marking on the side matches the last roll type engraving Colt used, altho the font doesn't look quite right, but I may be wrong about that. I hate to say it but it looks more like someone cobbled together an ASM frame from their last production of using up parts and maybe added the Colt address on top of the barrel. The fit of the triggerguard to the frame, looking at the serial number picture, is atrocious. Like I say I may be wrong but that revolver doesn't look to me like it was ever near USFA's production floor. At the very best this could be a reworked Colt, but for that it was either renumbered or someone found an old frame in the bottom of the bin, in which case they've destroyed an otherwise very collectable piece. Sad.

Got any spare 66 parts hanging around, anyone?

Happy Turkey, everybody!
