My Dear Kid -
this is a great little article, my thanks for posting it.

It looks like the concept of drilling out a worn frame cylinder pin hole might be just the  ticket for a beat up '58 with a wobbly cylinder such as I have languishing in my pile of trash chest of precious items .

However, I do have a minor question on the British nomenclature -
whateverthehell is a "whistle cutter" ? I can only imagine it is some sort of home-made drill?

perhaps our friend Palladin might chime in ?

Could be the best of likely scenarios ...though Beretta is solid & solvent , I doubt they'll invest.

 The scenario I see,  Colt will arrive on the Asian acquisition list , and corporate will have more Chien's than Chinese phone book.

My Good Gentlemen

regarding the sproinging of bits and pieces , I not only share your pain but am trying something to fix it.

Since I have been doing more putzing  than shooting lately, I am getting my jollies taking apart and tinkering with my Colt Open Tops ( wife's 1849's and 1851's, my 1860's and avenging angels) and my Rem 1858's . In so doing I find myself spending far too much time dropping and losing and finding too many small pieces.

Thus I am building Prof Marvel's Klutz-Proof Assembly Container - aka a poormans glove box. I have built gloveboxes for chemical safety before, but this is much easier as it does not need to be airtight. Even a 16"x16"x24" cardboard box will do for pistols.
cut 2 round holes for snug cloth sleeves taped in ( bare hands & fingers for easy handling) , and a large plexi window for "lookin' thru" and Bob's Yer Uncle. All the parts stay inside no matter how much explosive springys are involved! Everything can be held together with duct tape and/or clear packing tape. If one wishes a more robust and longer-lived box, one can use a large tupperware storage box with removable ( or even hinged!) lid .

Hey, 'round here, we don't care what yer shooting, just soz yer shooting something  Grin


My Good Coffinmaker - due to circumstances all my shooting of late has been or Hot Glue bullets and 1 gr powder/RB Gallery Loads - do those count ?

Cool. A little Yankee ingenuity and look what you have. Nicely done.

Went to an "Edwardian" shotgun match, and then ...

a fight broke out? ... ah no that would be the Hockey Game.

Congratulations My Dear Sir Charles, and with your caplockdouble!

Pray tell, not having ever shot in my kilts ( before I gave them up for loincloth and leggings - Formal Lakotahwear as opposed to formal Scotswear you know) do you find the wingshooting technique and/or followthru to be any different? Any tips you could possibly offer?

As I had to go to Church in the morning I went late, but was warned that a BP/ML shotgun match would follow. Dressed up in my kilt I missed the Edwardian event but won a match with my Navy Arms SxS percussion bundook. Only 7/10 hits on trap targets, and in a field of three brave souls who don't get to shoot their percussion shotguns very often. My prize? A fine glass beermug, but its marked "First Prize"!

Yes.  It's the simple answer.  The carbine has a 19 inch barrel and will normally hold 10 rounds and 1 in the chamber for 11 rounds.
However, if you cut the overlong Magazine spring, or install a cut to length stainless Mag spring, you may well get 11 in the Mag and 1 in the chamber.
Regardless, you start out with the CAS norm of 10 in the Magazine.
