Thanks  Morg

Yeah Kyda is like the modern - Nauga ... Kydex   ::) I feel the same toward Naugahyde , Its not real.

I have just one Tupperware gun a Sig , I had won a Glock as a door prize at a shoot some years ago..
I trade it for a NIB Springfield Milspec 1911....and never looked back !

I like vintage holsters and have a modest collection , including a couple of 50's 60's era revolver duty holsters by Bauer Bros & Jay-pee ...  ( photo's above ) and a few original military.

this I think is a Bucheimere or maybe a Safariland , the makers stamp was probably on the missing belt keeper part.
STORM / Re: lookin for a barrel for a project
« Last post by The Pathfinder on Today at 09:17:46 AM »
Black River, I had considered the Dance barrel, as they are listed under the 1851 in VTI's parts listings, but the ones currently being made use 8" barrels and the one I'm looking for would be 7 1/2". I do own a hacksaw so it may become an option if I can't find what I'm looking for. As for the octagonal part of the barrel, well, I also own a number of files and a sander... good excuse to practice skills I haven't needed for awhile. ;D
The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Squib loads
« Last post by Robert Swartz on Today at 08:55:42 AM »

Being new to reloading. Most of my experience has been with black powder. I load off a single stage RCBS press. All my powder charges are off either a scale or known powder measure. I also deprime, clean and inspect all cartridges prior to reloading. I have seen instances of primer strikes but not firing and I have seen squibs in both pistols and rifles. Any advise on pitfalls to avoid from more experienced reloaders. I'm preparing to start reloading both rifle and pistol cartridges in smokeless for 30 40 Krag and .357 to shoot GAF.  Just wanting to avoid doing something stupid.

Excellent job!!!    Love to see the real stuff come back to life.    i have no modern firearms, so I know not of this kydex you speak of, but I know of no animal named kydex so i suspect it is not a form of leather.   

Seriously that looks amazing and love the fact it was such a bargain.

Oshkosh by gosh !  My late FIL participated in that and Sun 'n' Fun with his Kit Planes.
He designed and built a J3 & Super Cub and sold the plans and components out of his  Opa-locka hanger shop.
Never realizing riches he'd hoped, but still stuck with it moving his base to Aiken SC and also managed a little 8000 gal. private airfield till he passed away in 2010. RIP

on tap today ?  Hmmm TODAY/ tonight ... well to quote a famous mouse ..."The same thing we do every night, Pinky – try to take over the world!”   :P

Morning y'all.
Coffee and iced tea are ready.

EAA AirVenture this week.

'Tis 62 and hazy. "Very warm and humid. Partly sunny. A chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 80s. Light and variable wind becoming south 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain 30 percent. Heat indices to 95."

  I'm a little late to the dance....

  I had one of these in a carbine and sold it, wish I hadn't. It was the smoothest '73 I've ever fired, one of those that almost felt as though it'd run itself. I mainly fired .44 Special handloads through mine. I used a little 165 gr. RNFP for CAS and a 255 gr. SWC for hunting. It was plenty accurate for a hunting rifle too.

Frontier Iron / Re: S&W Taylor New Model 3
« Last post by Major 2 on Today at 02:24:52 AM »
I do have an additional thought on the subject  of exclusivity...

Prior to the Taylor's intro of the NM Frontier , Uberti produced the Beretta Laramie and it sold under the Beretta Logo
( course Uberti LLC is a subsidiary of Beretta Inc )

The Laramie was discontinued, and Uberti began to produced the NM Frontier in its stead ....
the main difference is the Hammer
where the Laramie had a transfer bar design , the Uberti had the traditional and correct firing pin...   

I don't recall the distributer(s) of the Laramie, maybe just Beretta USA  Accokeek, Maryland , and how that may have effected the NM Frontiers introduction after the Laramie ceased.

While I'm not privy to the contracts ....I believe Sue & Tammy have exclusivity with Uberti/Beretta with the # 3 Frontier.
I believe Uberti has a similar agreements with Cimarron on a couple their offerings,  Taylors Inc. does not carry.
I don't have a list sorry ....

Of the #3 variations, the Schofield has been the most prolific sold , followed by the 2nd Model Russian,...

The NM  Frontier with Taylor's exclusivity, a distant 3rd, and now the newly introed American may slip to 4th.
Personally , The NM Frontier is the best looking , but that is JMHO  :)

The NM #3,  when I got mine was only offered in 45 Colt ( I shoot 45 Scofield ) I would have preferred 44 Russian, which I've recently been told is now offered. .
However, it is not such a big deal or must have game changer , I load all three calibers .
7 years in,  mine is a keeper  ;)

BTW The 2nd Model Russian is an original and I load BP 44 Russian for it...
