NEED A LEVER BARREL CATCH FOR ORIGINAL 49 COLT
« on: August 10, 2017, 12:18:47 PM »
Badly need an original Loading Lever Catch for the barrel of a Colt 1849 Pocket Model. It holds the lever up to the barrel.  It is thinner than the larger 51 Navy or 60 Army. Re-pro's no good, to large..........Thanks...........Jim

Make one, an hour or so, easy project. The best tip is to make it on a long rod and don't cut it to size till the fitting is done.

whip:  Dixie and other repro dealers have them, however they are for the 51 or 60 and are a way to thick.  The 49 takes one about 120 thick x 320 wide............Thanks..........Jim

I wish I had the skill to make one. Although it would not be an original, it would solve my immediate problem........Jim
