That is a lot of basket weaving!

Out of curiosity, how do you tackle large tooling projects like that? I case my leather, try to keep it just moist enough, and it gets mold before I can finish it.

I just wet it and then let it dry some and once I start working on it I have to dampen it periodically and let it get back almost to color.

That is the way I do it. There may be better ways out there.

Gunsmithing / Re: Dovetail front sight on 66 carbine?
« Last post by Baltimore Ed on December 01, 2021, 12:53:01 PM »
Don’t know how smith talented you are but the screw in the center could be replaced with a larger one that would need a notch into the bbl and magazine. Would have to drill and tap. But I would give pioneer gun works a call and get id dimensions to see if it’s tighter than whats on your rifle. If it is then try it. I put one on my Trapper and had to do a LOT of work to get it on my shorter 1894 bbl but it works great with the DGW carbine rear sight. I do wish the bead was smaller.

CAS City Classifieds / WTB - .45-75 cases made from resized .348 W-W brass
« Last post by Boone May on December 01, 2021, 12:09:07 PM »
I am in need of .45-75 cases made from resized .348 W-W brass.  The W-W make .348 brass works very well and feeds correctly in my .45-75 rifles.  Fired is OK.   Let me know what you have and what you want for it.
I know Buffalo Arms sometimes has these.  They are currently out of stock and the stuff they sell now is not W-W make brass.  It is made from trimmed and resized .50-90 Sharps brass and doesn't work in my original 1876 rifle.
 I have had good luck with W-W make cases, I don’t want to change horses in the middle of the stream…
As a scammer prevention tool, I will only deal with established members, preferably known to me from the 1876 rifle thread.  Times we live in...

Dang, that's a disappointment to have that pin break.  I have owned and shot quite a few original 1876's and I have never heard of a magazine pin breaking.  It sounds to me like your idea is a good one.  I don't know how the reproduction tubes are made but the originals are rolled steel and can be dented or bent easily.

That's a Great Western Revolver, which were VERY common in 1950's and '60's westerns.

SAA's were expensive back then, and the Great Westerns were inexpensive, good quality revolvers that were externally identical to the SAA, so it made sense.  Just like Uberti and Pietta's are used today.  In movies today it's actually rare to see an SAA that's actually a Colt.

The Shootin' Range / The Big Valley Season 1, Episode 25 Single Action
« Last post by Cottonwood on December 01, 2021, 09:15:50 AM »
Okay I was watching The Big Valley Season 1, Episode 25 called "Into the widows web" and towards the end of the show, the woman who I believe is Ann Margret playing the widow, is put to the test of being able to shoot a SAA or not.  When she cocks the SAA I spot the hammer which is missing a pinned firing pin.  So I rewind back to that point and screen shoot it with my cell phone.. as I figure they'd be using SAA's of the time era they are in.. is this a blooper?



It would be the Single Action that the sheriff is carrying.
