I remember having a revolver, probably Mattel, that had potmetal bullets with brass ‘cases’ that slipped on them. A Greeny Stickum Cap went on the bullet and under the brass. Load them in your revolver and shoot some bandits. When you reloaded you would scrape the cap remains off the bullet on the curb. Repeat as necessary. My first adventure in reloading.

The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: No Trail Boss what's close?

Code: [Select]
I need to try some of this in some newer guns, before loading for antiques, but I was given 4# + 1# of SR4759, which is a bulky powder ( not as bulky as TB) for lighter loads. If nothing else I can use it in my mixers cartridges, in place of Trail Boss, and save the TB for fragile guns. Can’t complain about 5 extra pounds of powder.

The short answer is yes-sometimes

My Kenny Howell 2nd Gen. 1st Richards is marked under the barrel - R&D Beloit, WI USA by hand.
I acquired the gun about 2006 and the precious owner had it built on his donor in 1998 or 99.

The Dave Anderson ASM sourced USPFA 1993 Shot Show gun- 2nd Model Richards, was only marked
USPFA  Hartford, Connecticut. roll marked on the top of the barrel no other marks

The Millington Remy was  B. Millington/ArmSport LLC , also had the Pietta FAP Diamond on the grip frame otherwise shaved of FLLI Pietta- Made in Italy- Black Powder Only.

My Gary Barnes Navy conversion has no marks on my donor Pietta 61 Navy- Kirst (totally shaved by request)

I never had a John Gren but handled one once, it was marked as shown in the photo below
I had to look for it though as I had not recalled the markings.

Greetings all.

Glad to see you back on Del.

I also have been out of the land of the Interwebs. Base-wide internet outage for about two days. Finally got it back last night. I blame Jesse James ::)

Weather is still hot and muggy. Had some rain of late.

I soaked mine in walnut dye overnight and they did seem to take it. It's not very deep but it's there.

Question, do any of these guys mark their work? I just got a Uberti 1851 conversion with a relined barrel but have no clue who put it together. I'm going to put a Kirst ejector on it and it will probably need a taller front sight.




Thanks!  That would be awesome.  Let me know and I'll send you some $$$ and mention you as the source of one of the grips when I do the Cowboy Chronicle article about these. 

The article will lead off with me being teased by a shooting pard 4 or 5 years ago, wanting me to buy Truth and Justice.  It will chronicle the acquisition, including the skinny grips, and transformation into my main match pair.  Then I will go into a history of Anderson, his guns, and his efforts to make the first "production, semi custom" 1860 conversions, (meant to be cheaper than Howell or Millington), all before ASM introduced production 1860 .44 Colts  in 1990.
Don't worry about paying me, just let me know when the article prints so I can look for it. PM your address to me and I'll send it this week.
