Frontier Iron / Re: S&W Taylor New Model 3

Thanks for the input Major.  A very interesting article. My son had a Russian. I didn't care for it much.  He eventually traded it in at a shop he was working for.  Do you have any idea why Taylors are the only importer who offer the new model 3?

New inhaler, actually doing good and humidity and smoke are most likely culprits.

Thanks for the clarification.  The Dragoon barrel term just through me.

So you want a Reb Navy Replica barrel.  I did a search for Reb Navy and came up with pictures of the brass framed with rounded barrel revolvers.  That then made me think of the Dance model that was offered, it also has a 44 rounded barrel.  I have never handled one so I do not know its' overall size relationship to the Navy frame.  But you could possibly add this model to your requested interest search to get a broader population of hits.

Another observation with these Reb Navy and Dance barrels are that only the Barrel is rounded.  The Arbor/Barrel Mouth area is still left flat-sided into half octagon topped shape.  The drastic barrel step may not get you to the correct overall shape of what is pictured.
The Leather Shop / Bowie and revolver rig.

The holster is a copy of a Collins. The Bowie, sadly, is not mine.
I looked at my copy of DEFENDING THE DOMINION, Canadian Military Rifles 1855-1955, David W. Edgecombe, service Publications, 2002. very interesting, but I cannot find any serial numbers for arms other than material transferred back to stores from the NWMP. (NO Spencers)

No, I realize a dragoon barrel won't work, I'm looking for a 'dragoon style' barrel. They used to be quite common on the brass frame 44 cal navies, usually referred to as the 'Reb' model. Now I'm seeing more octagonal barrels on the newer brass frames and while VTI lists a Pietta barrel like that, I don't want to have to purchase another Pietta frame to mount it on. The available frames I have to use are either a CVA, could be either ASM or ASP, a Uberti and an EMF ASM.
Might even be able to work out a trade for someone who has what I need if they want to try as well.

......any specific reason for the cancellation. Covid? Not enough registrations? Gas prices may cause some to limit travel. A cousin of mine that is a heavy in 1812 reenacting commented last year. We may be seeing the end of large events that require or draw attendees from the whole country.
