Tuolumne,
You are a luck man.  You have provided the rest of us with some very fine and interesting firearms through the years.

Can't wait to see these 'new' Richards I's.

Congrats and hope you like them as much as, your other conversion, if not more.  True Richards I handguns, in 44Colt, WOW.

Does anyone know if a sheriff is higher ranked than a Marshal in the old west?

In Territories, US Marshals were the lead. After statehood, it depends on the state's constitution.

There were different law enforcement jurisdictions in the old west just like there are now. There were town marshals, who were roughly equivalent to police chiefs; in some cities and towns they were in fact called police chiefs. There were also county sheriffs just like there are currently county sheriffs. In addition there were US marshals (or more accurately deputy US marshals) that handled federal crimes just like the current US marshals do. In the old west, there were often overlaps between these various positions. It was not uncommon for a county sheriff to also carry a commission as a US marshal in order to give him jurisdiction outside of his county and to enforce federal laws. Town marshals we're often deputized as county sheriff's deputies for the same reason. Of course most county sheriffs and some town marshals had deputies working under them.

So as far as ranking them, I wouldn't really say that a county sheriff higher rank a town marshal; they just have different jurisdictions and responsibilities.

Thank you very much, the mold will have to be cast in Russia, which is why the drawings are needed, because due to the stupid policy of my state, there are now problems with international mail and prices.

Accurate molds have dimensions listed for various style molds, depending on what weight you want to cast. If you're looking for cap and ball, they can have a different shape than the bullet you are showing.
Or if maybe that is what you are looking for, they do make custom molds to order.

Gunsmithing / Need help with .36 bullet size
« Last post by Svyatoslav Kozlov on Today at 04:46:10 AM »
Greetings to all forum participants! My name is Svyatoslav Kozlov, I am from Russia, I live in Moscow.
In my country, any short-barreled combat weapon is prohibited by law.
The only exception is for weapons produced before 1888, as they are considered antiques, but at the same time they are very, very expensive.
Nevertheless, I saved up money for 5 years and finally bought a childhood dream - an original 1856 Colt Navy.
My question to you is the following:
I couldn't find blueprints for a .36 caliber bullet anywhere to order a mold from a craftsman.
I ask you to take measurements of your bullets and report the exact size.
Thanks a lot!
Sincerely, Svyatoslav Kozlov.
