Hello Richard,

I some how knew you were not going to sell it off as parts.

Very nice job, AntiqueSledMan.

Hello Pete,

Just did a google search,

Hope this helps, AntiqueSledMan.

Hey Miner,

Remember, talks cheap & it takes money to buy whisky.
I agree with Shotgun, Pictures or it didn't happen.
Just my 2 cents worth.

Also, I don't have any of the above listed.

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".

Walkers & Dragoons / Re: Walker conversion with "bp only" cylinder

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.
