Those are some rather FINE looking holsters.  I will concur with the esteemed MAKO, the primary difference dimensionally will be the Cylinders, although there must also be some careful consideration of the Ejector Assembly on either an Open Top or and 1960 Richards/Mason Conversion piece.

MUCHO fine leather work there Trailrider.  Strictly Yum Yum you betcha

I think that is it.  I can't be certain beacuse another '87 shooter bought a bulk pack and gifted me one.  It definitely works though.

My biggest pet peeve, screaming pet peeve...was (is)  Hell on Wheels

a "brass frame 1860 never was" cast as a Griswold & Gunnison  ::)
The Armor was so stupid, stated it was Griswold ,
I quit watching the series.

bad enough, Brass frame 1858 Remington's in "Ride with the Devil" and Hatfield & MaCoy's.
WE even tried to tell them on "Ride", but Director Ang Lee liked the brass look

The most annoying, repeated error for me was constantly committed by the Duke himself. His ever present Model 1892 Winchester saddle ring carbine, no matter the year of the movie's setting makes me grind my teeth every time. His 4-3/4" Single Action Army Colt, which wasn't available until about 1878, is also prevalent in many of his movies set in an earlier time frame. It's the curse of a gun fancier and history buff to know too much. (smile)

I think the most blaring error was in Tombstone, when Morgan is killed, Wyatt goes outside in the rain and the ground is wet in only a 30 foot circle. makes me laugh every time

 :)  WELL !!  ;)

I for one, am completely satisfied.  Spanish Inquisition not withstanding.  I am completely happy.  The pretty pictures now show up just fine.  I like the Pretty Pictures MAKO posts.  I have also been a fan of the Pretty technicolor CAD drawings MAKO posts.  Especial since I have never been able to post pictures on this site.

Seeing the hulls in actual cross section also explains what "others" have described about certain Shotgun Hulls and why they say they may not be as good as they once were.  Although again, seeing the actual hulls in stunning technicolor, cross sectioned explains a bunch.  And to me, would indicate some of those who whine about the newer hulls, really have nothing to complain about.  After all, the rounds still go BANG, the poppers go down (or the clays bust) and the hull can be reloaded numerous times, unless loading with Black.  Brass Hulls, of course go "To Infinity And Beyond" (stolen famous movie line).

I do admit however, I have acquired an amount of once fired AA hulls for a project, and as soon as I can figure an efficient way to cut 'em down to Two and a Half inches, I'm gonna begin that project.  It's just for Funzies, not a long term replacement for my favor'd Brass Hulls to be understood.  Diet Coke SUX

My question:  How was your Rifle Short Stroked??  In the grand scheme of things, if a rifle has questionable Head Space OEM, and the Short Stroke is "cut and weld" the cut and weld makes it worse.

Often, if a rifle has wonky Head Space, a Short Stroke "KIT" can resolve most of the issue.  We would need to know, if a kit was used, who made the kit (Pictures).  The current manufacturers of Kits can and will offer Links longer than stock to help correct bad head space.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

'Tis 32 and sunny. High of 45.

Thats was good one Santee, as a Film Production Designer, it was constant struggle for weeding out anachronisms and continuity mistakes.
It was not perfect though, in "Houston the Legend of Texas " a reenactor's wristwatch got by.
Another in " Gettysburg", even after the Background artists were instructed to remove any such tell tales.
A biplane pulling a banner almost made a take, requiring a reshoot the same scene a few days later.
