The Leather Shop / Service Holsters
« Last post by Major 2 on July 25, 2021, 07:38:08 AM »
My local LGS is retired cop owned , and from time to time I see used service holsters in the $5 grab basket
I bought this one ( 1st photo)  for $5 it is a vintage Jay-Pee circa mid 50' to 60's  and somewhat rare in that it is lefthanded.
Fits my 1946 S&W Military & Police  equally well my 1945 Colt Commando. 

I also have the this Bauer bros. circa1929 Duty holster that came with my 1919 Colt New Service 38 .

So I saw a Vintage mid 50's  Bucheimere leather swivel duty holster in the basket Saturday, the pouch is in great shape but the upper and swivel is missing ....I think it is a great restoration project and will grab it Tuesday ( shop is closed Sun & Mon. )
A simple fix , to make the loop and attach a swivel.

question is ...

Exactly.
And it is damn near what happened.  I'd have a lot more patience with his antics if he had simply called back and cancelled.

Gunsmithing / 1884 trapdoor chamber issue
« Last post by nativeshootist on July 24, 2021, 08:35:05 PM »
So a few month ago I bought a 1884 trapdoor, it was a infantry rifle that had the stock cut down but the barrel wasn't. So the issues is that after firing a round, the case is swelled into the chamber and sticks into it where the ejector can't remove it requiring it to be pried out. then once the case is removed it shows imprinting where the case is grabbing on too and it does go around the entire casing, I thought it was a piece of brass that was left in there. I have some cases that came with the rifle that doesn't show the marks the other cases have. i will try and get photos of the chamber later.

I doubt he ever had the guns.  You are lucky you did not send money electronically or we would be getting a different sadder story.  Thanks for sharing.

Having it in my hand don't mean it is going any where.   It is a pretty tight fist  ;D
I have his real name, his phone and his actual address.  He wouldn't have gone far.   Might have been a wild ride but not my first rodeo 8)

Some people have no honor.  I once agreed to buy something on Gunbroker for a certain price.  The seller then puts it at buy it now at that price and someone else jumps in and grabs it before I could.  When I called him on it his excuse was "What can I do?"  Obviously, "Man up and tell the other guy it's already sold." didn't occur to him.
