Also, he tried to sell it on consignment at the LGS. Who knows what happened while they had it. All I know is the shop owner said it had been there a while, and he told the guy to come get it, he needed the showcase space.

  With the climate the last year we have received very few donations of door prizes. We are asking for entrants to bring something you don't use but is still serviceable.  thank you.   jt
Howdy OBB,

Nice looking "scraps". Good work. I would make one suggestion: Leave the powder measure off the belt and on the loading table or gun cart. I have seen the rare result of an errant spark getting into a CVA flask (think grenade). With the blow-by at the cylinder gap, it could be a problem. I don't mean to be a fear monger, but was a consultant on a court case and saw the devastating result. It was not from a revolver, but even with the nice covered design of your pouch, why needlessly take the risk.
Just received my new "TEXAS" Hunting Bag from T.C. Albert today!  If any of you are familiar with MUZZLELOADER magazine, you know who T.C. is, as he writes the "Doin' It Yourself" article in each issue.  Tim did a fantastic job of making the bag just the way I wanted it for an 1840's-50's bag.  I supplied the knife (a modified Lamson & Goodnow kitchen knife).  It's pictured with my 1840's Sheffield Bowie.

Just polished, never heat treated past the original billets they were cut from.

Just guns in the white...nothing more.

Final Update:  Just heard back from Turnbull, and they have records to support that all 50-75 of the San Juan Hill guns for USFA were Case Hardened and Charcoal Blued at their facility.

Here is what we know for whomever comes across another one of these:

Replica of the Louis G. Bishop, Rough Rider Colt held in the National Firearms Museum
Black Powder, Case Hardened Frame. Charcoal Blued barrel with 5 1/2" barrel, chambered in 45 Colt
D.F.C inspection marks on underside of barrel and on frame, above frame serial#.  Also a P proof mark on underside of barrel
OCH  (Odus C Horney) Cartouche on left grip panel with 1901 over the top of it
RAC  (Rinaldo A. Carr) Cartouche on right grip with a small R.A.C stamped on bottom of grip
Frame stamped "US" next to Patent dates
Cylinder stamped in 3 places, (8222, R.A.C, and P)
Grip serial# 119276
Trigger serial# 93910 with a G beneath it
Frame serial# NFM###
Total Build: 50-75 pieces
Turnbull finished all pieces
Build was commissioned by the National Firearms Museum in 1998, through USFA for a limited run to be sold exclusively through Cherry's.

Along this line, I have gotten into several "Discussions" with sellers, elsewhere, whom were advertising Pietta "Marshal" series Cap Guns as "Stainless."  NOT

Just highly polished steel, then heat treated.  Looks like stainless but it IS NOT.  Pietta also now offer several different Cap Guns as "Old Silver" made the same way.  Really NICE guns.

Stay Safe Out There
