The Leather Shop / Re: Holster advice

I got into shooting ambidextrously by accident.

I ordered a pair of 'Slim Jims' from David Carrico for my .44 Remington cap & ball guns. I wanted a right strong side and a x-draw, but didn't say so. I wound up with a left and a right.

I thought - "Why transfer?" and I've been shooting double duelist ever since ....  ::)

The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: Compressing BP in .44-40?
« Last post by Henryshooter on Today at 07:56:09 pm »
Yes, I reviewed all of the info the late "John Kort" researched about the .44-40, too soon gone. I bought the 43-215C on his recommendation. I do use CCI 300 LP primers in my .44-40 and Rem 2 1/2 LP in my BPCR. Right now my distances to shoot are 50 and 100 yds in N-SSA competition. However, such a sweet shooting rifle, I'd like to  shoot chickens and pigs at 200m and 300m. Turkeys at 385m might be pushing it. Thanks for the info. I love to read this website. Maybe someday I'll get an SA. Thank you.

OK.  I'm up against it.  Some time back there was a thread and discussion about a rotary, plastic loading tool for Cap Guns.  I think it was manufactured in France.  I also think PUK was involved in the discussion (PUK = Paladin UK). 

I thought about the thing just the other day because I load on a tower of Power.  I'd need 12 of them but what the heck.  I'm lazy.  Anything to make it easier.

So ..... anybody remember this ????

The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Main spring
« Last post by King Medallion on Today at 04:00:28 pm »
So, I cut a couple slivers of .20 shims and put them under the tension screw. 1 shim didn't seem to be enough, but 2 felt good. Action is smooth and trigger isn't bad at all. This is with one of the VTI springs, I sent the other back. Next time out will see how things go. I levered and dry fired multiple times, so far so good. Will report after next outing.

Nope, they have a new ejector that will work with the upcoming 22 LR Konverter for the 1858 also!  Apparently different from either the Mason style or the speed ejector.
