A bit of thread necromancy here!

There is an original Slotter-made rifle marked for A. J. Plate in San Francisco for sale here:

Per description, it is in shooting condition.  Price is $2k, trades considered.  Might be worth a look if anyone is interested in a California rifle!

Have watched it and the movie, twice now.  As i stated earlier in this post, i am slow to jump on tv shows.  To be honest picked up both the series and movie in the discount bin at Wallyworld.  I am cheap as well.  Great story line...but, the endings leave me wanting more.   :-\

I know I'd need the '61 plunger, but I've got a lever for an 1860.  That piece is the same from what I can tell.

Definitely worth watching, but a dark and gritty story. A lot of Sharps shooters. I thought it strange that one of the bushwackers was carrying  a percussion model in 1890!    Jw

Thanks- appreciate your input.  The only thing I could think of on the hangers is to have a split that you bend apart- put over the stud and then bend back. Either that or drill out the stud and replace- either is a lot of work.  Thanks on the leathers. Off hand it seems a lot easier to make them with the buckle on the "small" half.
In looking at old vintage phots, it seems a lot of leathers weren't the dove wing at all, just a wide band.  The spurs didn't have the button on a hinge- just an upward tab, and there were slots for the chains.
While we are on this topic, some spurs are wider (top to bottom) than others. Any reason? Do the wider styles stay in place better?  Years ago some spurs on the arm going back to the rowell had upward curls. Some guy say it was to prevent your blue jeans from getting down on the spurs but I figured they were used to dig into a bad, bucking horse.
CAS City Classifieds / 03 wood

I have a Springfield 03 that is rather nice except the stock and hand guard were cut for a sporterized attempt. To put it back as military I’m looking for wood to repair it. This could be just the front half that could be spliced in or a complete S stock. It need not be perfect but repairable.

Wife and I finished it the other day.
We enjoyed it, and yes, it was sometimes difficult to understand, but the story line usually carried it along.
I enjoyed the authenticity of the shooting stance the long range Sharps shooter used.

It was somewhat depressing in tone and certainly did NOT glamorize the American West.
