I am REALLY excited!  This is my first match with my "Ideal" armory:  A pair of 1860 Richards conversions, an 1860 Henry (HRA "New Original Henry). and my Rossi Overland hammered coach gun!  This is kind of special because always before I was using "Author guns"  1872s, 1860 R-Ms, 1860 Richards, all in varying flavors. (calibers, barrel length, finish).  While I might have them for a year or so, they would either have to be sold or returned so I could get the next batch.

While I did write about my Kirsts, I purpose bought those to be my main match guns, and they were not "Author samples".   They were (or should I say are, because I still have them) close to my ideal pair.  There was, however, always that niggling "but they are only 5 shot!" floating around in my  "always striving for authenticity" head.  This pair is PERFECT!

I just noticed a typo in the subject line of this thread. I had "RC Gallup" and it should have been "SC Gallup". That's corrected, now

Afternoon all. At least I think it’s afternoon over there. I could be wrong.

I’ve arrived at my final destination in The Heart of Darkness. I have air conditioning though, so i can’t really complain. We have WiFi here, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. Not much goes on other than turning wrenches on airplanes.

RCJ, if you goggle Wisconsin old west shootists you will get to their
main website, then go to guns in the hills or forms page. Seems we had this
problem other years.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are ready.

Mucked out the run-in shed this morning. Started getting the garden ready for planting.

'Tis 55 and partly sunny. High of 62.

STORM / Re: Why are there no conversions options in .44 Caliber?

Just stumbled over this old but still educational discussion.
Found these pics of an old Uberti made 1860 Army percussion revolver converted by an unknown smith into a Richards conversion.
Seemingly the original percussion cylinder was bored through to shoot (probably) .44 Colt cartridges ... which did not quite work.
The pistol was sold over at German internet auction house Egun in 2020.

STORM / Re: Differences in Uberti Navy Grip Frames over time
« Last post by Coffinmaker on Today at 09:19:06 AM »

 :)  PLUS ONE for Abilene!!  ;)

Those of us who work on, or have worked on, the afore mentioned Guns/Grips/Grip Frames) are mostly familiar with the FACT there are NO interchangeable "Grips."  Grip Frames Yes, the actual grips??  NO.  One thing to remember, the Grips are actually fit to the specific gun or grip set and if one is seeking to change, procuring and entire "fitted" grip set is the way to go.

Also, not only are there differences in Grip Frames at different year points, but there can be (have been) differences within manufacturing "runs" at Uberti as well as at Colt.  And now, importantly, at Pietta since the discontinued those abhorrent "Trombone Bell" abominations they called "Navy" grips.

It can make playing with the guns we play with really interesting.  And, depending, really annoying.
