Slim, it worked, thanks, pretty sure I messed it up the way I thought, just didn't know how to fix it.

Oh and here is that lab puppy (not mine) that rolled in the pancake syrup and tried to it off by rolling in the grass, he looks so sad. ::)

Gunsmithing / Re: Why Oh Why 20" octagon Barrel
« Last post by Abilene on January 25, 2022, 05:48:58 PM »
Yes it could be done.  I have heard of it being done with perfect headspace, which is good because if it wasn't then the re-aligning and chambering gets more expensive.  Maybe some gunsmiths who have actually done it will chime in.  The barrels are interchangeable and since you are staying with "large bore" the bolt and carrier will also match.

If you do something like that, you can always sell the original barrel to recoup some of your cost.

I have a new question for you guys concerning this topic.  This is just a thought; crazy idea; or just wondering.

I have heard it stated around here and other forum that parts between the Cim 1866 and 1873 are somewhat interchangeable.

With that thought -- Is it possible to screw an 1866 - 24" barrel 38/40 from like VTI (if available) into an 1873 steel receiver that once had a  24" - 44/40 barrel on it and have it, time-out as is (ie - headspace)?  Would then all the existing necessary parts from the 44/40 fit into the corresponding 1866's - barrel groove cuts for the nose-cap tenon and magazine ring?  Ultimately lining-up/spacing-out properly.

Or just a totally DUMB idea?  Just fishing here for options.  Can handle the truth.

I hadn't really thought about it. ::)

Will you be at Roca Saturday? I plan to be. Maybe we could discuss it then?

Thanks Major!
Interestingly the 7.62 Tokarev cartridge has a large following with Chinese gangsters, as the
Hot rounds penetrate more than 2 55 gal drums filled with water.... And the gangsters seem to think
It will penetrate chicom police body armor.

Prf mrvl

Based on my experimenting with hot loaded 32 mags I would say very likely on older type vests.   

"Wolf Gold FMJ tops out at 1,720 feet per second (520 m/s) with 745 joules (549 ft⋅lbf) of energy, as does PPU ammunition.)  Source Wiki.


I know my 124 gr fngc at 1250 will beat a 44 mag 240 grain for penetration in clay, wood and car bodies including safety glass.

The Leather Shop / Re: Weight leather for cartridge money belts
« Last post by Cliff Fendley on January 25, 2022, 02:19:43 PM »
Are you guys using anything to reinforce the area with the cartridge loops? I've made exactly one money belt out of 4-5oz and the loops are all but unusable because the belt is not stiff enough to support the loops. These are woven, which  may make the difference. I thought about using a strip of 8-9oz, if not 12-14oz in between the two layers of 4-5oz just to stiffen it where the loops are woven through it.

I almost always sew the loops on money belts. Money belts are typically too thin for full woven loops. I've made exactly one that I recall and used 6-7oz leather on that belt. I have done quite a few semi-woven loops money belts and that works pretty good. 99% though have sewn loops.

Edit to add. I think you could get by adding a strip to the back of the front side to thicken it up. I was looking at an original Al Furstnow money belt I have and it has the front side of the belt doubled up. The belt appears to be made with about 4oz leather.

CAS City Classifieds / WTB/WTT: Ruger 44 Special or 41 Mag
« Last post by LongWalker on January 25, 2022, 01:44:00 PM »
I'm on the search for a couple of Ruger (non-Bisley) Blackhawks: 44 Special flattop and 6 1/2" 41 mag. 

For trade bait I have a gently-used 44 special Flattop (5 1/2" barrel) and a Cimarron 32-20 (7 1/2" barrel).  Given the current situation with brass etc, I can kick in brass/dies/maybe even moulds for the right trade. 

Thanks for looking,
Jim
