Well the window I had open only played for a short bit, what was in cache, before it too quit.

We already did "Water Carrier Ravine"  in 2016.  Watch your run on YouTube and see if you see anything "amiss".

Original S&W Top breaks of all types also had quite a dramatic cut away sculpting at the topstrap juncture above the barrel to help divert fouling away from that critical area.  I doubt modern pressure/strength requirements would allow that to be done now.

See my opening post for an explanation, and check back in a day or two.  The original video had the wrong animation in it (one for the next in the series: the Dragoon) so they took it down for editing.

Very nice. Not sure I've seen anything with a Cheyenne influent for Schofields. Very well executed.

Thanks. Lots of people have a hard time finding good Schofield holsters, myself included so I thought I’d make a pair.

Water Carrier is based upon an incident at Little Big Horn, and will be a main match skirmish.

Driftwood Johnson has posted pics in the past about his Schofield with "BP friendly" mods machined by Happy Trails.

I have loaded BP, Pryodex, and 777 for the Schofield.  My best results were with FFG Goex, a big grove SPG lubed bullet, a grease cookie under the bullet, and the cylinder arbor greased up with SPG.  IIRC, I could get about two stages with it, before I had to start squirting it with Moose Milk between stages.  It seemed to get the fouling but not the grease.

I handled an original Schofield and have shot some original No. 3 Russians.  They all had a generous baffle on the front of the cylinder around the arbor, protruding well below the rear of the barrel and forcing cone.  It was effective at keeping BP fouling off the innards of the cylinder and around the barrel.  A few years ago, someone was actually retrofitting Schofields with an Uberti Open Top style baffle.

Ok. Thanks guys. Sounds like maybe I’ll just stick to the wet or dry.
