Sounds like you have every right to be proud Major!

The rain quit long enough for me to get the tails and kabobs done last night.  Turned out good.  Back to a like drizzle this morning.  Hoping for another gap in the moisture to do steaks tonight.  The lawn is looking good though!

One of the best westerns and a great movie all around.   While none of the actors, other than Bottoms are really the right age.   Fletcher was a real person, he rode with Bloody Bill and young Jesse James.  He did end up in Texas after the war, minus an arm.   I believe he opened a mill.   Bloody Bill was only about 24 when he was beheaded by the Yankees in Richmond Missouri (about 6 days after he killed my wife's G.G. grandfather).    I am in that area of the country, and one has to learn to sing Dixie or the Battle Hymn of the Republic with equal enthusiasm!

IIRC the biography I read on Wild Bill Hickok reported that the ACW continued to be fought on an unofficial basis in the Missouri area for sometime after Appomatox. I seem to remember reading something about returning Union and Confederate Vets trying to "settle scores" for quite a while afterwards. Heard anything about that?

Best Wishes,

I think trying to shorten the lead bullet in every round you shoot would be an exercise in frustration.  And yeah, it would be very difficult to do this and not affect accuracy, without using machinery (just my opinion - never tried it). 

But most '92's have the opposite problem.  They like ammo at max OAL and choke on shorter rounds, like running .38's in a .357.  Did the rifle already have the action job when you bought it?  I'm wondering if it was set up to run .44 Spcls?  I would try some of those to see how they feed.  If you do need to stick with magnum brass, it can be reloaded with the bullet seated deeper, as long as you get a good crimp into the bullet so it doesn't sink deeper into the case under magazine spring pressure.

I have used a bench grinder.  Chuck the cylinder pin into a drill and spin it as you hold the base up to the spinning grinder.  This will make for a fairly smooth profile.  Measure often.  I shortened mine just over 1/8". Then I just held sandpaper against the newly rounded end (rough paper first, then smaller grit) with my fingers while spinning the drill to smooth it up.

How did you shorten the pin?  Cut-off saw?  Bench grinder?  Lathe?  The only thing I have here is a bench grinder or a hand grinder with a cut off blade.  I could also give it to my brother or nephew and have them do it at work.

It's not rocket science and it doesn't make any difference if the end isn't all that pretty when you are done.  A bench grinder and a pot of water (to cool it so you don't burn your hands) is all you need.  If you have a Dremel with a cutoff wheel you can use that for the intial cut and the grinder to finish the job.  All you want is to shorten it so that when fully seated it doesn't stick out past the back of the frame so the hammer cannot contact it.

I recently bought a new Winchester (made in Japan) model 1873.  My Marble tang sight that I have on my original Winchester high wall made in 1887 fits on the new '73 but does anyone know what size screws to buy for the new '73.  Buffalo Arms sells all different screw sets but none listed for the new Winchester.  The sight spacing on the new rifle is the same as on the original guns.

Any thoughts?

I would like to see the time period this fellow copied his Navy Revolver Frog from?

Todd's US Military Equipage, 1851 to 1873, Volume III deals will much of this Naval equipment.
Todd's shows line drawings of a fine example of a revolver frog for both Colt And Remington revolvers.
In fact, USN 1851 regulations called of all leather to be made of Black Bridle leather.

Sorry, but I got to say that fellows copy looks nothing like any "Period Correct" US Navy Revolver Frog I have ever researched, studied or examined within my any of my collection, or experiences of US Naval artifacts.
Respectfully FCK
my best,
