Major is 250 total shooters or total in duelist class? Either way you did better than i could.

How many Coke cans did that take?

Mornin' all- coffee and water it up.
Back to work this afternoon.

With all due respect General, if you have cheap-ass (frugal) friends, you're going to need a lot of partners!  Is it just a noise maker, or can you(we) really shoot stuff?
The more the merrier!

It's has an undersized bore. The cannon is full scale, but the bore is half scale. It doesn't come with any projectiles, and I'm not sure where I'd get any 6 pounders, but it can shoot. I'm just not sure I/we'll do any live fire with it. I'm thinking that with the hill behind where the long range targets sloping like it does, a ball could end up in Taylor or South Dakota or somewhere before it ran out of steam.

I used med. brown leather dye , thinned 8 to 1 with denatured alcohol .... this is the ratio I use for redoing Uberti grips.
In this case however, it dried a few shades light.
So I tried 4 to 1 , when dry (overnight is best ) it is close, remember the final finish will darken the wood.
I use Skidmore's Wood Rejuvenator, actually this is same product as their leather conditioner.
Mostly bee's wax & oils .

Once the 4 to 1 application was dry, I used 500 wed/dry to polish down any whiskers raised by the die....(the piece comes well sanded and ready for finish, but will whisker just a tad.

Final coat(s) (2) with Skidmores and burnish with paper towel ....I have photos , however they are held hostage on my new G8 camera phone
until I figure out how to download them  Undecided  

Meanwhile here is a one piece grip I did on this SAA ( with the dye & Skidmore's )

and the upper as it comes...

Hi Guys,

I'm seriously thinking of either selling this Spencer carbine or donating it to a credible museum.  It sits in my safe and that really isn't doing anyone any good.  I bought a reproduction to reenact with, but I have put a centerfire upper block in it.  As it turned out, the block that was in it was a centerfire block, but appears to be pretty old.  So the question is, does anyone know of a museum, preferably in Indiana given it's history, that has a Civil War exhibit that would benefit by having a Spencer Carbine? 

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

WOW
An exact match for your Spencer Carbine, according to my SRS BOOK.  Your Spencer Carbine serial # 30337 was issued to a member of Company G, 6th Indiana Volunteer Cavalry on July 13, 1864.  Shocked Shocked Shocked

Evening Y'all, The Match went well, was July hot (Upper 80's and 70% + humidity) I surprised myself shooting Duelist at this match by not coming in last (only the 3rd time shooting Duelist) and I came in 133rd out of 250 overall. I'm still recuperating from the weekend but that has been slowed down with Babysitting my Grand daughter all week. I'll bank the coals so they're good for the morning crew. Y'all have a good one.

Is it really dark or fairly light?

About 8 or 9 years ago, I disassembled one of my 44 Colt rounds (I have about 18 or 19 of them) and it has a 210 grain bullet and 25 grains coarse powder.  It had a beeswax type grease cookie and card wad over the powder.

Thanks for the tip!  I've been periodically checking S&S for quite a while and they never have them in stock. A couple clicks and I have one on the way for $77 including shipping. What do the experts recommend for finish to closely match my 120 year old original finish stock?

The current owner (the guy with the mortars at Stu Kettle's service) says he wants 5K for it and would take half now half later
