Well, that pretty much explains why I'm not a cartridge collector. (LOL)

The cartridge box...recently sold for $6,000

Everyone, I have been silent for a while as I made preparations to leave California for the free land of Arizona. This means that I can move forward with my publishing company which would have been unrealistic with all of California's "regulatory compliance, taxes and fees". Although I have argued for years that Southern California played a huge role in the story of the American West, it's nice to live in a place where people finally appreciate that American Pioneer legacy. The gold is long played out and the sun has set on the golden state.

Words cannot describe how exhilarating and overwhelming it has been. I have spent nearly the last 7 years living in historic Santa Ana Canyon (which virtually nobody knows or cares about the history thereof) and am now among people who love history. The last thing I want is to turn Arizona into another California and so, I am assimilating to the AZ lifestyle. It is nicer, cleaner, and more affordable here.  People also seem more interested in knowing their history.

When asked by some of the millennial employees at my work, why I am leaving, I gave them this story:
"25-years ago in this same neighborhood in California, I made $13 an hour at an entry level office job; took home about $1600 a month; lived in a nice 2-story, 3-bedroom townhouse for $850 a month; my car payment was $175 a month; all my bills were about another $100; and my healthcare was a whopping $52 a month.  I moved in 2-roommates for $200 each and had enough money to  live the dream going to the mountains, deserts and beaches as I pleased.  Now, those same townhomes are $2500 a month; the place is so crowded it takes hours to go anywhere;  the beaches are too crowded to bother with; healthcare is over $500 and I won't even go there on the bills. Oh! and the best part is that the same job still pays about $12-13 an hour & requires a college degree so most people under 35 still live with their parents."

In short, I am free...the Frontier American Illustrated News and its various publications are ready to move forward...and I am now in a place that shares my passion for our Nation's legacy.  Let the journey begin.

Gentlepersons-
instead of politics, let us wish each other "happy holidays" and return to the steampunkish topic :-)

since i have a quantity of parts, i have slowly begun a remington project inspired by Tinker.

i never understood "why" the remmington has that long nose on the frame, so I took a beater frame and cut it off
and re-shaped the front of the frame a tish. Since I plan for this to be a snubby with a barrel of perhaps 3" or less,
I am pondering the possibility of filling in the rammer hole as well. I am also planning on making this one a little
"steamy" so any ideas you may offer are welcome.

photos will follow, hopefully, after I get done running around.....

yhs

On my bench is a loaded capped and ready to go is a 1851 Pietta .36 Navy.
Fun gun to shoot and works like a Swiss watch thanks to .45 Dragoon.
It got late and there was no time for today to shoot.
What else could you ask for.

Not sure but seem to recall that snail cappers (if that's what you have) might not work so good on Remmies.

Sounds like a reasonable theory to me.  Perhaps that sharp edge peened some metal inside the barrel hole when trying to reassemble it.  But there are some good c&b 'smithies along shortly who probably know better.  What brand is it?

The bore looks warn on this one, need to give it a good clean over the next week and see what we have. I have a Uberti in 45-60 as well but wanted a original
.
                                   Real nice looking rifle Mike  . For some reason the rifling on the 40-60 wcf rifles are shallower than the .45 and .50 cal barrels . I have one old original  40-60 wcf with a pretty good bore and it's grooves are under 3 thou . A good charge of BP. will make the bullet purchase the shallow rifling , it shoots pretty good . Good luck with that old beauty you have there .,,DT
