Colt Collecting / Re: Signature Series
« on: Today at 08:32:09 AM »
A while ago, Colt would letter the Signature series, but not any more..

Nice work. I started out using tissue paper, the kind new shoes and shirts, etc. come wrapped in. That worked OK, but I felt it was a bit too fragile. Also switched to hair curling papers. The tissue paper was free, but the curling papers are very cheap.

Welcome from Wisconsin; keep us in the loop as you work up your paper cartridges. Pictures are nice too. L@J

The gun came with 12 cartridges, and I bought another 6.

I am glad to see a dedicated forum devoted to air guns; thanks Capt'n! OK, I got this gun from Pyramyd Air a bit ago. It was on sale and I bit. Sad to say I haven't had the opportunity to test it out yet. If you check around, you can find a little better pricing.

Those are nice! I'll have to investigate the "photo transfer" process.

Scooby, that is very good of you to mentor that young man! I like the Marlin too. I used to have a short rifle (not carbine) with a button mag that was supposedly special ordered.

Very nice work. You have obviously caught up on your reloading for a while.

Scooby, I'm glad to see you back. It was like losing an old friend when you stopped posting. I did go through PB and downloaded all the photos back to my computer, those that I didn't already have saved. I, too, use Flickr, and am also trying to get more proficient at downloading from the site here.

A few years ago I picked up a bunch of used arrows from various sources, bought fletching jigs (right and left), cement, etc. as a lot of the arrows needed TLC. And that is where it stands right now. As Kirk says, too many projects, so little time!

Ted, great report. As far as Black MZ, I will pass on using it at twice the price of black powder.

I have a 1st ('60),1 second gen ('62), and a 3rd gen Colt ('73). This happened over a period of probably 25 years. Could be a possibility of getting one of the 2nd gen. Colts I sold several years ago back again. Oh, and a 1st Gen. Mexican copy of a '73 that I got several years ago as a parts gun; been puttering with that off and on when the mood strikes.
