I use anti-seize on all my screw threads on reassembly. Makes removing them a non-issue.

That is amazing, Richard!
I knew who the engraving was before even reading your post; it's THAT good!
And the Wild Bill is spot-on as well. You may have found your calling.

Army Models / Re: Smokeless in a BP revolver
« on: September 28, 2018, 08:16:57 PM »
This has been covered in spades on all the BP forums (including this one) over the years. If it's been said once, it's been said a thousand times, but just in case:

NO AMOUNT OF SMOKELESS POWDER CAN BE CONSIDERED SAFE IN A BLACK POWDER REVOLVER, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TRAIL BOSS IN CARTRIDGE CONVERSIONS!

Yes, some folks have done it, but sooner or later their luck will run out and they will wind up with a face full of shrapnel, or worse.
Cartridge conversion cylinders for BP firearms are made of smokeless quality steel that can withstand smokeless pressures while BP cylinders are not designed nor proofed for these types of pressures!

Thanks for posting, Ted. It can't be repeated too often. DON'T DO IT!

Army Models / Re: 60 armies

I agree with your assessment, bigted, "Just Right".
I have two '60's and while I have other guns I 'like' more, or are more unusual, sleeker looking, better pointablity, etc...for hands-down ergonomics and function, it's hard to beat a '60. The .44 is hard-hitting and the creeping loading lever is a mechanical marvel. Add one of the Goon's cap rakes to combat cap swallowing and you are in some serious black powder territory.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I work two jobs so time is a luxury. How many posts do I have to make before I get to stop answering the questions and filling out the letters?

try this:
Log in, then once in, save the home page as a thumbnail. You should not have to answer the goofy security questions anymore. If so, try clearing your browser history and that should do it for ya.
