The Barracks / In need
« Last post by Major 2 on Today at 12:32:27 AM »
Gentleman, I am reaching out for help in expanding the Span-Am exhibit at the Museum of Military History which I curate.
Our Display only features one original khaki issue infantry coat , a few period photos and a Teddy Roosevelt portrait .

I'm hoping to add a US Volunteer Blue woolen or flannel shirt , campaign hat , perhaps a web belt to dress out a mannequin.
Replica is OK , perhaps your closest has shrunk those items.  What have you ?

We are a non-profit, open to the public , I can not offer funds, I can provide you with a Donation form  ( income tax ) or Temporary loan paperwork....

We are also looking to expand the Buffalo Soldiers & Indian Wars display .....

I have donated , my War of 1812 ( Tecumseh Movie props & Costuming ) and Alamo the Price of Freedom items, Costuming & Art etc.  , that has filled the gap we had between the Rev. War and the WBTS.

I will gladly provide you photos of your items when they are displayed , and you are most welcome to come visit the Museum.

Thank You

Just bought a Navy Arms 1860 Richards Conversion in 38sp
Would love to be a member

Well, I told you it was a '61, but then you didn't post a picture.  Does it have Army or Navy grip?  If it has an Army grip then it would be an 1860 (sort of, that gun never existed in .38 in real life but they called it that).  Prairie Dawg is selling one like that with the Army grip so that made me think of it.
I have for sale a very nice Factory-Produced ASM 1860 Army Conversion in 38 Special.

Manufactured by ASM, Imported by Traditions

Serial Number 300

7.5" barrel with good bluing, and just a few scratches around the wedge slots

Army one-piece Grip in nice condition

rear sight, loading gate, & firing pin are on the conversion ring

Ejector rod is fitted into the loading plunger hole below the barrel.

Steel Backstrap, brass Triggerguard

This is a nice gun!

$525 shipped from my FFL to your FFL

Thanks for looking

Well, cuz my 86's are Brownings and don't have the 2nd hole, and my 94's are newer and don't have the 2nd hole either. Sooo,,, hence the question.  ;D

Captain Obvious Here,

Why not measure the center to center dimension on your 76 and compare it an 86 or 94. Actually, if you post your dimension, some helpful lurker here may post the dimensions off of one of their rifles.

It looked like you were't getting any help here so I jumped in.

In reading your report three possible problems come to mind.

First, you bullet isn't carrying enough lubricant.  A better designed bullet might help.  Also a card wad seated on the powder charge, followed by a lube soaked felt wad, then store the loaded ammunition nose down until ready to shoot.

Second, you may need a better lubricant.  To eliminate guess work, use something that is tried and proven - like SPG - until you sort out the fouling problem.

Third, you didn't say what alloy your bullets are cast from. If it's too hard and doesn't upset in the forcing cone it can lead to all sorts of problems.  Most BP rifle shooters recommend no harder than 20-1, lead to tin.

No guarantees any of this will solve the problems your having but it's somewhere to start.

Good luck,

Thanks for the post Pitspitr.  Since this was an "excerpt" was there any mention of the guns used on this hunt in the rest of the story?  Were they still carrying percussion plains rifles?  Or perhaps did they have 50-70 Sharps, Rolling Blocks, or Needle Guns?  Or something else like a Springfield musket that was selling cheep on the used gun market?

Inquiring minds want to know,

Afternoon all.

Hit 60 today, with little bits of water falling from time to time.

Major, I’ve got a 2020 vintage USAF 321 TRS coin if that would help you .  ::)
