1911 & Wild Bunch Shooting / Re: M1917 Machine Gun Demonstration?
« Last post by Baltimore Ed on June 19, 2024, 12:44:53 PM »
I have started work on a 1917a1 Browning WC dummy that will be a gas gun. No way could I afford or feed a real 1917a1 or even a semi but a full auto gas gun should be feedable. Been buying parts for a bit. I want to use it as a Wild Bunch prop at my clubs WB shoots. This is my second try, the first was very primitive. This one will have as many Browning parts as I can afford. I even had thoughts of setting it up with a painted backdrop, table and arch at big matches for photos and make some money with it. This is not a cheap build by any means. Got a ways to go.  Btw, I put 20 rds through a Maxim at EOT years ago. Was a hoot. If you can figure out who the guys were who set up the Maxim, Gatling and mountain howitzer at EOT they might be able to help you.

My Good Del

I shall have to teach your the patented Toshiro Mifune Ronin Speed Hair Tying Trick.
It looks most impressive on film, and rsults in a funky topknot thingy that actually does keep the long hair out of the way of power tools, doors, and stickly stuff!



How I long for hair I could grow out and put into a topknot . . .

On the other hand, keeping my hair out of power tools and such is not an issue.

The guy who made the jail at the Caballeros was a machine gun guy.  I don't know if he still does it or what he has.  Check with Kettleman, he used to go out to Skot's place and shoot them.

1911 & Wild Bunch Shooting / M1917 Machine Gun Demonstration?
« Last post by Doc Holloman on June 19, 2024, 08:26:12 AM »
I was wondering if anyone knew of a source, preferably not too far from central Texas, where one could arrange a machine gun demonstration at a major match.  An M1917 as used in the film would be perfect, but also acceptable would be a water cooled Vickers (more period correct) or an Infantry type  Lewis Gun (what Pershing actually took to Mexico).

Morning y'all.
Coffee and Swea'Tea are ready.

Going out for breakfast with the boys and a couple of friends then to the toy store. The intent is for one of the friends to buy an AR.

'Tis 72 and partly sunny. "Humid. Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Nearly steady temperature in the mid 70s. West wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent."

Supposed to have storms today and tonight. 

I'm working on the kitchen.  Getting done, wife wanted contact paper on lower shelves and can't get down there.  It's done, it's not neat, got my hair tangled in.it a couple of times.

Spencer Shooting Society / Re: Spencer Serial Number 50950

From Two Flints...."Very good chance your Spencer Carbine, serial # 50950, was issued to Company E, 7th Indiana Volunteer Cavalry on November 12, 1865." Grateful for the info, and this forum.  I don't have it in hands yet, but will post photos when I do. 

Meantime, while I'm here and we're talking Spencers.... a friend got me this Spencer Bullet (not put together) from Sailors Creek.  I can't help but conjure up such images of where and what regiment/division this bullet was from?  Sheridan, Custer, Merritt....Was it dropped in action, trying to reload that magazine...?  Too cool! 

Appreciate this fine forum and the Spencer Shooting Society. 
First the pictures: You can see the shape and size of the M1860 with S/N 50950.
Great to have info still archived, glorietapass.
