STORM / Re: OFFICIAL 1861 thread (post pictures here)

Thanks! I originally wanted to reshape the barrel lug to mimic the 1861 R-M's but that never happened. Sorta got attached to it the way it is. I know it's a little beefier and heavier than a real `61 but I really like it.
Me, too.  :)  And anyway, reshaping the barrel is way above my pay grade, and the ejector would still be wrong for a R-M.

At one time Uberti made some two piece plastic checkered grips that had a built-in spacer attached to fit against the backstrap.  The grips were kinda crappy and very easy to crack when tightening the screw, some were cracked out of the box, but replacements always fit perfectly.  I don't know why they can't do that with wood replacement grips! 

I'm not talking about the older hard rubber eagle Cimarron grips made by NC Ordnance that had a built-in spacer and glued together.  I have one of those and like it.

So, I'm curious if Pietta two-piece grips use a locator pin or something else.

Sleep in front of a fan last night. Sweated so much I had to rotate the pillow three times.

Not able to be awake for more than 2 years before I need a nap.

Slim

Hope you get better Slim.
But 2 years is a loooooong time to be awake

I thought it was superb! I knew it was long and knew it wasnt going to resolve completely going in. It was a big well done work of cinema set in several western states depicting the grit harshness and perseverance we all love about the genre. A+

The Leather Shop / Protecting Belt from sweat for hiking
« Last post by 1961MJS on July 08, 2024, 05:19:10 PM »
Hi

I have several pair of hiking shorts.  I live in Oklahoma where it's commonly warm all year round, especially in the summer.  I made a belt out of Veg Tanned leather with the thought that the color wouldn't bleed onto the shorts when I walk like the already dyed belt blanks would.  That being said, is there anything that I SHOULD put on the belt to keep it in good shape?  Veg-Tanned leather, sun tanned, and neats foot oil applied.

Thanks

:)  Graveyard  :D

Your pseudo 1861 is just too kool.  I really like the barrel at the Ejector Housing as well.  The gun just looks "right" and well balanced   ;D

Rita and I had some sort of stomach bug yesterday and today, taking it easy.

It's nothing to fit either or ,,,
If they are two pieces OEM,  aside from the screw, there is a small blind idler pin to locate the two halves.
This pin is not present if one piece grip relying on the spacer and pinch fit.

So, the fix, if going to two halves is either fit a pin or what I do... Locate the grip half and trace around the inside of the frame on to the grip itself.
I then fashion a thin shim maybe 3/16" wood (Formica works well) also traced inside the frame
Cut fitted and epoxied on the back of the grip shell (making a perimeter 3/16" step) then drill to match the single screw and Bob's your uncle.
Outside fitting is as per usual...
