Just as long as it doesn't happen while you're awake...

Thanks for sharing! I don't get over to THR much these days.

Good looking little pocket, Dave! Looks like my Baby Dragoon...minus the loading lever.

I can't take credit for the idea, I saw it in a video or read about it elsewhere. 

For glue small amounts of Elmer's.  I'd been using glue sticks, but I tried the Elmer's today on a whim, after a while the glue sticks sometimes lose some adhesion, I think the Elmer's  won't have that issue.
In my galaxy, far far away, we haven't heard of Elmer's.
What kind of glue is that? What does it say on the label?

It's a low-strength white glue, Len

Scooby, do you have a part # for that J&D mould?

Drill a hole through a scrap piece of wood, lay it on a flat surface.  I roll the tube on a dowel, add a little "cup" for the bottom, stick the whole thing into the drilled hole so that the "cup" contacts the flat surface underneath your wood block and twist the dowel a few times. 


What a great idea! Love the look of those carts. What sort of glue do you use to glue the paper to the conical?

Hey, do you get the nice, flat ass-end on those paper carts?

Welcome! "Sponging" is allowed, but we're likeable fellers and we don't bite so why not loosen up the tie and join us at the campfire? In fact...hell; just take the damn thing off.  )lI

Richard, I use Flitz on my brass. Supposedly it has an anti-oxidant that works up to 6 months from application. I wipe my revolvers with RemOil after handling.

Funny, Mike...but this is the first time this thread popped up in my unread listing and it's an old thread. Great info you posted there!

I was hoping to find original ASM nipples from Deer Creek, however on visiting their new website, it's apparent that their ASM stock doesn't include any horse pistols.
What would be the best (closest to original) replacement nipple for this gun? I shoot #10 Remington caps on all my Dragoons and the rest as well. The ball seater screw I can probably get anywhere.

Good idea. A natural aged patina is a good look on any percussion revolver IMHO.
