Hey there Four Eyes

Your Youtube link is pretty kick ass.  That would be ideal as a side match or tie breaker.

And my Walker:



Some folks on another forum found this photo disturbing.  I will delete it if anyone here feels the same way.

I was using a remote camera on a tripod, no body in harm's way.

Some people find EVERYTHING DISTURBING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Almost to the point of  using safety to put us out of the game.

Howdy Y'all
I just rejoined CASS City and it's nice to be back.  Here is a pic of me in Idaho, 2007 at El Buscadero's.  I shot Gunfighter then and it is my right hand pistol letting go.  I now shoot NCOWS here in Texas and love these snowless winters.  HAHA  Better than the 92 inches I waded through last year up North.

New Acquisitions
« Reply #221 on: January 20, 2010, 03:37:00 pm »
Thought you'd all like to see my latest acquisitions.  The Case and upper pistol are new, the accessories and lower pistol I've had a while:


The case is a Second Generation Colt French fitted presentation case with the Colt logo on the lid.  The top 1860 is a 1985 vintage Uberti Stainless Steel 1860 Army that was imported by Allen Firearms, Sant Fe, NM.  The bottom 1860 is a 2nd Gen made in 1982 and the accessories are all 2nd Gen Colt.  

One thing I noticed right away about the pistols was the Uberti is highly polished while the Colt is matte finished.

I'd love to have another Allen Firearms 1860 to put in this case.  And would like to find more of the stainless Allen Firearms Ubertis that were imported.  They made five different models between about 1982 and 1985.  I've got 2 - the 1851 Navy & 1860 Army - and would love to find the other three - 1861 Navy, Pocket Navy, and Pocket Police.

Anyone know where there are any - please let me know.

Fingers

PS - Thanks Madcratebuilder for the case and natchezjim for tfinding the pistol for me.

Hadn't visited this thread in a long while.   I used to be on "dial up connection" and the pictures took forever.  Have high speed wireless now.  Lot of great shootin' irons.  Thanks to all for posting 'em up.  

Can't really figure how to put the pictures in here.  But click the link and see a few Remingtons of mine and some other shootin' stuff as well. . . .

Good shootin', . . .  :)

I have had this shotgun for several years and decided to bring it out and shoot it with the "magic black".  It is an original U.S. Arms, Made in Belgium, laminated steel barrels, backlock action external hammer locks, and side lever opening.  It is as tight as a drum and the bores are shiny as new; exterior of the barrels has a beautiful brown patina with the curl in the steel.  Stock is walnut with some curl; checkering is there but is somewhat flat pointed, no cracks in the wood.  Barrels are 28", 2 1/2" chambers.

The most I can find out about it is that in the late 1800's and early 1900's, many U.S. companies imported Belgium made shotguns under their own labels.  I read about U.S. Arms somewhere, but like a dummie, did not download and save the info.  Any info some of you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Am going to load Magtech brass shells with BP.  Since the Magtechs are longer than 2 1/2, do I have to trim them? [Actually they are designed for 2 1/2" chambers, so I found out] They slip right in easily.  I slid a 2 3/4 Winchester shell in to test chamber length, and you can feel a "bump" when it reaches about 2 1/2 inches.  Not so with the brass.   I am in no hurry.  The snow here in Virginia has brought everything to a slowdown and I'm bored.

Thanks for letting me share.

MJJ
