Hey tljack,

Just what church do you belong to?
None of the churches around here have a shooting range.

Hello Dave,

The nice thing about RCBS & Lyman is the fact that the Dies are interchangeable.

Hello Dave,

I have never pan lubed, but in watching different videos I noticed many use a cookie cutter over the bullet to cut it out of the cake. Then placing fresh bullets into the holes & remelting the cake over & over.

Hope this helps, AntiqueSledMan.

Green Mountain quit making the 1:28 drop in for the Thompson Center Hawkens.

Hello Richard,

Well it is a gated 6 shot in 45 Colt, I suppose one could put a Kirst Ejector on it.
I was just surfing around & stumbled across it, thought everyone would enjoy seeing it.

I agree with Gray Fox if only they could make a gated 6 shot conversion for the 1860, maybe in 44 Colt.
I do understand why nobody does, other than Uberti with it's oversized Frame & Cylinder.
Just to many Lawyers out there.


Whitney / Re: Show of hands?

Sorry Guys,

I guess I just really love that 1888 Whitney Single Shot.
As far as the revolver goes, I've watched a number of Pallmetto's
on auction but refuse to pay so much for a low quality revolver.
I do have two Spillers, one Pietta and one DD mark imported by Navy Arms.
Palehawk Down once told me he had a deal with the people at Pietta to get some Stainless Steel Spillers,
but he has never contacted me with any more information.

There are a few I'd like to own, but the answer is no.
Have you guys ever seen this one?
I've always wondered if this was after the sale to Winchester.
There is a picture of what they called a proto type Marlin which looks like it.


Winchester / Re: Winchester '94 in .32-20?

Hello Pigeon,

Scooby is correct,
but the "Model 94" was once chambered in both 44 Mag & 357 Mag.
Why? I'm not sure. I would think feeding could be an issue.

You never fail to amaze me with not only your great photo's,
but your many trips into the wilderness.
Almost makes me feel like I'm part of it.

Many thanks, AntiqueSledMan.

Hey Capt.

I agree, Lee Marvin was pretty good as Liberty Valance, but I thought he was better as Kid Shelleen in Cat Ballou.


Flintlock Muskets and Rifles / Re: Show us your flintlocks

Thank you Richard,

Now I can show my Flintlock, I always thought it was just me.
33 years ago I decided to try a Flinter, purchased a Davide Pedersoli Pennsylvania in .32 cal, with its 42" barrel and rock lock I thought it was going to be lots of fun. I fought it for about 2 years and finally purchased a percussion lock, built a drum and installed a nipple from my Thompson Center Hawken and never looked back. I later wished I'd not used the Thompson nipple, who would have ever thought that they would change them but I did find some Treso's which are exact replacements. The Flintlock has been lying in my desk ever since. I do love shooting this thing.

Hey Scooby,

I have one in .25 Stevens. Am planning on reworking the block for center fire.
Been playing with forming 5.7x28 to make Center fire cases.
The rim is a little thin but I think is will work with black powder loads.
They are neat little rifles.

Hello Guys,

I'd really like to have a Whitney Navy Revolver.
Only problem I have is I will not pay the ridicules prices
they are getting for the Palmetto reproductions much less
an original. Guess I just have to be happy with my Pietta Spiller.

Hello Richard,

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

Very nice job, AntiqueSledMan.
