What I try to accomplish is to give the belt the shape it would naturally achieve over time. No need to wait.  ;D

Yes and yes ...the removable magazine is missing, it carried the caps and the spring contact connection to the hammer...
Compared to today's toy gun it was miles ahead in quality.

Cool!  I've never seen one of those 1911's.  I assume it is sized for a kid's hand.  Is it a cap gun?

I don't believe I would have attempted such but:

To paraphrase Captain Danny deMortimer in the movie NEVER SO FEW,  " God, you've got guts "
He was referring to the "gin" made by Ringa (Steve McQueen)

Frontier Iron / Re: Cimarron's new American model!

Well, talked with Cimarron today and have frankly decided to probably settle for a 5" in .44 special. They told me I could use 44 Russian; 44Colt AND 44 Special.  So I am now on that particular waiting list.  Ten months if lucky
Gee, maybe I should buy lottery tickets instead. LOL  :)

The Longbranch / Something a little different or Gun-a-holic Part II

Way back when, I was probably the best armed KID in my neighborhood range.

I recall, Mattel Shoot'n' sixes and a Fanner 50,
Daisy 1894 Spittin’ Image BB Rifle, & several other Daisy BB Rifles
I had a Mattel Babiy Rolling Block that shot the shooting shell bullets.
Numerus other Mattel, Nickols, Hubley and Marx guns of all shapes and sizes including Tommy Guns, Burp guns. I even recall a Double Barrel SXS cork firing shotgun.

I suppose somewhere about 6th grade or 7th. grade Jr High, or maybe puberty, they were regulated to the back of a closet.
The fate of most of them, packed off to the Salvation Army for some new up and coming little neighborhood terror.
Now gone but fondly remembered, I'm quite sure embedding my lifelong fascination in all things shooting.

Well, I ran across this little GEM tucked away some 62 years.
It is a Hubley Colt 1911 (no Idea what arrangement, Hubley had with COLT for the branding)
It was made in 1960 and in remarkable original condition, though the removeable magazine had gone missing, but the plating finish is rust free with no corrosion.
Just a relic from my childhood, it's refreshing to see it was made in the USA (you won't see that anymore).
And while I was at it, I discovered my old Cub Scout pocketknife, I carried IN SCHOOL as a scout was always prepared... circa 1956 made by AMERICA IMPERIAL here in the good old USA 
with real bone scales and carbon (holds an edge) steel.

I might also mention my Remington Model 341 22 long Rifle, I had it since Dad gave it to me in 1957.

Just some treasures from my by-gone era.  :D

The Winchester Model 1892 / Re: Tang sight...
« Last post by Virgil Lantey on August 04, 2022, 04:15:03 PM »
Success using the buckhorn as a peep!!!!
My handgun loads (avg. 935 fps, 250 gr RNFP) averaged 1200 fps out of the 24" barrel and were right on at 25 yards.
I still plan to develop a "rifle only" load for the 92 using IMR4227 that I expect will be around 1450-1500 fps.
Love this Miroku 92! Not bothered one iota by the tang safety or rebounding hammer and I have zero plans to change anything.

Thanks, Will,  In what way do you wet mold/shape a belt?  I’ve wet molded holsters but not belts.  Do you cut straight then curve them sort of like a Buscadero belt is cut curved?
For the most part, this is correct. What I actually do is put a little curve to it so it fits a person's body without digging in at the hips. Some men don't need any curve. Women take a little more curve than men because their waists are proportionately narrower than their hips. If someone is going to wear it low on one side, you can put a little drop in it of the low side.

I wear double crossed belts for CAS. Here is the curve I put on the left side belt. It looks warbly but that's just the sunlight filtering through the trees above.
