FWIW, if you ever want to order a holster for your Webley, custom or off the shelf, specify a Ruger Redhawk.  Perfect fit, and no "whut?" from the maker.

Hello Charlie,

Very clever way of extracting cartridges, nice job.

Here's a link to the "Anvil Enterprise" plans for 1851 conversion.

Shotguns / Re: NEW SHOTGUN
« Last post by Coffinmaker on Today at 04:07:09 pm »

 ;D  Let us allow that I should Elaborate    ::)

I'll answer EVERYBODY with the best information I have.  At this time, there is no TTN type shotgun offered by EMF.  Nada.  Zip.  EMF is currently offering TWO 1878 Replicants.  The first is/was the PEDERSOLI.  Some call it the Wyatt Earp, some the Doc Holliday (OK Corral) and it can be ordered sans any moniker.  The Pedersoli is Super Well made.  It looks on the inside like guns from the High End Bespoke gunmakers.  That good.  It is EXPENSIVE.  Taint Cheap but you get what you pay for.  I do have a Pedersoli.  Bought mine when they first came on the market and were on sale at Dixie gun works for silly money.  They (Pedersoli) cost a bundle more these days.

The PIETTA is on the EMF Web.  Currently offered plane jane for 1149.  When I first saw pictures of the new "Pietta" my first reflex was "That's a Pedersoli."  I was positive it was a Pedersoli in Pietta clothes.  I called EMF and they related it was Pietta all the way.  I was in no hurry for another Hammer Double until Shot Show.  There were three new Pietta guns up on the display all behind Alesandro Pietta.  Two had light colour'd wood and were plain.  The top gun had darker wood and appeared to have some nickel and some checkering.  A clearer picture showed the gun with a nickel Receiver and Checkering on the Butt Stock and the Forearm.  I immediately started to drool.  I also called EMF to ask if they had and "offer to buy" and they did not.  I offered "lets dicker" and was offered a price I couldn't haggle with and sent a down payment fourth with, or with force as it twer.

Through all of this, I was of the Opine the new Pietta is a Pedersoli.  Now that I have it "in hand" I am even more convinced it is a Pedersoli.  I stacked it inna guncabinet next to the Pedersoli and if it weren't satin nickel, I couldn't tell them apart.  Same same from the top and the hammers.  I have not as of yet had the side locks open (very soon) but the shotgun is either a Pedersoli or Pedersoli has sold machine tools and CAD to Pietta.  They are IDENTICAL.  That said:

The Pietta is a rather High End 1878 Replicant.  Super well made and without doubt outlast it's owner.  I believe it to be a Plane Jane Pedersoli.  Mine is a "One Off" intended for the show circuit.  It also has longer barrels than the production guns.  Mine is 21 7/8 Inches or thereabouts.  Too nice to attack with sharp tools.  I can live with it.  I production livery, the gun is about $600 bucks less money then a "name" Pedersoli.  I consider that to be a very good buy.  Burma Shave

Oh.  Pull up EMF.  Take a peek at the Pedersoli.  Take a peek at the Pietta.  Same same you betcha.

SCORRS / Re: 45 cas in howell clyinder ?
« Last post by Coffinmaker on Today at 03:14:54 pm »

It Depends (NO, not those rubber things).  The R&D 6 shot conversion cylinder for Remington has the chambers bored "Off Axis to allow case rim clearance.  The ACP cylinders are bored "On Axis" to to the center axis of the barrel.

For Howell cylinders that fit Colt Pattern Guns, the chambers are bored "On Axis" however, there are only 5 Chambers.  For the CAS game, there is an extra slot for the bolt that locks the cylinder between chambers.

For your application, your most cost effective option would be to use the 45 Colt cylinder for C45S cases and skip the ACP application altogether.

DaveT, the Wyatt Earp shotgun is Pedersoli.  Cimarron calls it Doc Holiday and Taylors also calls it the Wyatt.  That one (expensive) is available without the name on the side, at least from Cimarron.  Expensive gun.  I think Coffinmaker has one of those, too.  I don't think EMF has the Pietta shootgun on their website yet.  The Hartford they list is just the TTN/Cimarron.

Coffin,

I went to the EMF web site and the 1878 they showed had an un-sitely "Wyatt Earp" scrawled across the action. Your pictures don't show that (good for you). Do you know of the production guns have the name or are they going to be like yours?

Colt SAA Clones / Re: Question about Pietta Pistoleer
« Last post by Coffinmaker on Today at 10:36:41 am »

Hi Rio,

Don't remember.  Were it I, would call Cimarron and ask their Guru.  However, I haven't seen a recent production SA from Pietta that didn't have a harden'd bushing at the firing pin.  I may not be a good current source though.  Been a while since I was employed working on CAS Guns.
