Navy Models / Re: Broken frame to barrel locator pin on a 51 Navy

Hello Pete,

Have you tried a small magnet?
I removed an arbor staking pin one time with one.

Hello Lee,

I have an 1851 CVA which was built by Armi San Marco.
As far as I know, it would be either an ASM or Pietta.
ASM parts are available through Deer Creek Products.

Hope this helps, AntiqueSledMan.

Hey Scooby,

Would you like to take a walk through my shed & finish up some projects for me?
(just kidding)

Hey Mike,

Thanks for posting, I've seen on TV but never knew one could drive right to it.
Maybe one of my many planned motorcycle trips.

Hey Scooby,

Nice 93.

I have one in 32-40, pretty rough but I did bag a doe with it back in 1991. It isn't a Saddle Ring Carbine, but a Short Rifle instead. Some "Moron" set a pair of Silver Dollars in the Butt Stock, then another "Moron" removed them, so it has two counter sets in the stock one on each side. I discovered that it shoots jacketed bullets fine, but my cast bullets tumbled so I mixed some 60/40 solder in with the wheel weights (3 parts WW to 1 part 60/40) and they shoot fine. I always wanted to have the receiver re-colored and re-stock the old girl but it's just one of those projects. The Barrel is marked "Special Smokeless Steel".

I found a post on Cascity and saved for future reference.

Walkers & Dragoons / Re: Walker conversion with "bp only" cylinder
« on: September 09, 2017, 04:43:46 AM »

I got a whole different meaning on this, I think he was originally planning on using the percussion cylinder for the cartridge conversion but decided it might be too soft. Then decided a follow up plan to go with a Kirst or build one himself using 4140 round stock. If using any smokeless powder, I would not use the original cylinder. I don't think he plans on using percussion ignition.

I hope he does a follow-up, with pictures.

Lead casting / Re: Glutton for punishment

Oh Richard,

They are a little more work,
but they really look neat.
I thought you were going to use BP,
dipping in Alox would be an easy way to go.
Very nice work there.

I hope you will show how you lube these.
Curious to see how you will go about it.
Looks like a nice mold, I have never messed with brass (yet).

Good luck, AntiqueSledMan.

I used Hoof's plan, lube after loading. But of course I had to do it differently.
I didn't want to try a Black Powder Lube in my Lyman 450 Sizer Lubricator,
so I built my little Sizer Lubricator to fit my Cylinder Press.
It worked great, but I needed to size before loading to keep bullets from
pulling out of the case. Of course had I used my 450 Lyman, the ejector punch
would have pushed them out instead of my pulling them by the case.
I think Pan Lubing would be impossible. Larry Potterfield did a video where he loaded
44 S&W American, he brushed lube on the bullets. I thought it was interesting. He has
many interesting videos, worth looking at.

Hello Richard,

Crimping for the 38LC can be done with a Lee 35 Remington Factory Crimp Die & a
custom shell holder.

I used an aluminum shell holder on my experiment, but would probably go
with steel.

I also used a set screw for locking the 1/4-20 Socket Head Cap Screw in
place, but one could get by with a jam nut instead. Maybe a 1/4-28 fine thread bolt also.

Simply set height & lock position, if cartridge hangs in crimping die a
pencil would be all it needs to push it out.

This setup would work for 357 Mag, 38 Special, 38 Long Colt, 38 Short Colt, and even 35 & 351 Winchester Self Loaders.
