Tall Tales / Re: Coffee and Tea on a very Independent July

Evening y'all.
I was called into verk early because of issues.  ::)

Looking forward to 3 days off.

Need to replace the A/C belt on the Avalanche. Of course, the main serpentine belt has to be taken off to put the A/C on.  ::)

Weight will be 150 grains, just like the original.  I sent Steve an original .38 Colt, 150 grain bullet, to model it after.  Because it is hollow base you can load it long to work in rifles, too.

I've had two with the barrel bent at the front barrel band.

My H&R doesn't like BP.

I wouldn't worry a great lot about mismatched parts (most left the service that way) but it's still good to know what you're looking at.

Thanks DJ ;D

The SRS books only show serial #15327 & #15352 as being issued to Company L, 2nd Michigan Volunteer Cavalry in 1864 (no day or month listed).  Your Spencer Carbine, serial #15340 falls between the two serial #s shown above, so MAYBE your Spencer Carbine was issued to the same unit . . . as DJ suggested please read my Spencer Serial # Disclaimer on the home page of SSS.

Do you plan to join my SSS Forum?  You will need to send me an Email stating you want to join . . . my Email address is fsgrand2@fairpoint.net.

I don't see a direct match, but it falls within a range of carbines associated with Co. L, 2nd Michigan Volunteer Cavalry--there's a carbine about a dozen numbers below it and another a dozen numbers above it that are reported to be with that unit in 1864.

Others may have more input.  And be sure to take into consideration Two Flints' disclaimer about serial numbers that are "close" to yours.

Photos?

Yeesh, took all day at the dealer to get a 1/2 hour job done. We've owned 6 Hyundais in a row, but this dealer down here has me doubting if we get another one next year. We were SPOILED by a great dealer up North. Hope this got the mischief out of the way for this month!

That's what they do, they ask you who you are the, the day the month and the year and if you know where you are.

My father came over and he had him a nice little Walther .22 pistol that he wanted a holster for. He didn't want anything fancy. Just something quick and easy and small.

I was able to use a piece of scrap I had and a few min later we had him a holster cut out. I sewed a very simple belt loop on the back, burnished the edges lightly, sewed up the pouch, wet molded it and let it dry for a while. Then I sprayed it with some Fiebings Saddle Lac and called it done. He was happy and it only cost me about an hours time spend with Dad.
