BROW / Re: #1 Remington Sporting rifle - .44-77
« Last post by ndnchf on June 12, 2021, 01:01:30 PM »
A rainy day here, so I figured it was a good time to load some .44-77s. Not long ago I received the backordered .060" poly wads from BACO. So I loaded up 20 rounds with the 406gr bullets from an Accurate mold wrapped with Seth Cole 55W, loaded over 77.0gr of Swiss 1.5. I'm looking forward to trying them out :-)

Guess I should now sign up, having recently acquired a "semi-correct" Uberti Russian model to go with my North West Mounted Police impression ...

When the Force was first formed in 1873, the latest model Adams military service revolver was ordered from the United Kingdom, but an apparently unscrupulous War Department contractor shipped poorly-packed and obsolete First Model Adams revolvers (converted to metallic cartridge from percussion) many of which were damaged and unserviceable upon arrival.  To help fill the gap until the correct Third Model Adams revolvers were received from Britain, the NWMP acquired thirty S&W Russian Model revolvers.

My Uberti, with the NWMP pattern holster I have made for it.  (I am working on getting more appropriate wood grips.) -

(Note that I referred to my Uberti as "semi-correct", since it has the too-short ejector housing they put on some of their Russian Models ...)

I have an 1860 Spencer Carbine Repeater Rifle Says March on it and I believe the serial number 12622.  How do I find out info on the serial number and the history?

It's been quite a while for this thread. I'm resurrecting it with a photo of one of my recent holsters with a very simple and effective border on it.

That was done with a tool I made years ago.

The photo makes it look like I drag the tool but it actually is used by pushing it.

Let's see some more borders, pards.

I have a Carrico FWC belt, type "B" with the canvas loops, set up for .50-70.  A truly excellent item.

Beautiful work, and nice choice of pattern, one of my favorites, your guns look to fit perfectly, you can't do any better than than that...

My New Uberti Schofield arrived yesterday at the gun shop where I work part time. 
I already have a canvas/leather Model 1876 prairie belt, with a three hook type Eagle belt plate added to it, but I really like the Fairweather Christian belts more.  Today I got ahold of David Carrico and ordered one of his Fairweather Christian belts with an 1874 "US" belt plate and canvas cartridge loops.  I have had his gear before, and really love his work. 

I already have an 1881 holster I used for my 1872 Open Top when I use my Prairie belt.  I much prefer the half flaps to the earlier full flap 1872 holsters.

Thank you gentlemen for the helpful suggestions. My difficulties were solved after a visit to a pawnshop. I was scrounging through some unmarked plastic boxes and sourced two large primer pocket reamers, one only does width and one for depth (adjustable). Also found a flash hole reamer. These vintage tools make the task much easier. The Magtech brass flash holes were too small to use the decapper pin, so the flash hole reamer makes the holes uniform and just the right size. So for the $15 investment I ramped up production, about 140 12 and 16 gauge are completed, though there are about 50 more to finish.
