Say...don't you chuckleheads know an 'anteek' when you see one? Why, that one is SUPER rare, being one of the few Colt prototypes in existence with a brass frame, original 'sheriff version' short barrel and loading lever, and the prototype for the rebated water table cut/.44 cal cylinder upgrade. Hell; with an 1843 manufacture date that one be the granddaddy of the 1851 AND the Walker! Don't you fellers know nuffin'? Hell, that one gots ta be worth at least half a mil an' he's only asking $795 bucks BIN!

Hello Richard,

Crimping for the 38LC can be done with a Lee 35 Remington Factory Crimp Die & a
custom shell holder.

I used an aluminum shell holder on my experiment, but would probably go
with steel.

I also used a set screw for locking the 1/4-20 Socket Head Cap Screw in
place, but one could get by with a jam nut instead. Maybe a 1/4-28 fine thread bolt also.

Simply set height & lock position, if cartridge hangs in crimping die a
pencil would be all it needs to push it out.

This setup would work for 357 Mag, 38 Special, 38 Long Colt, 38 Short Colt, and even 35 & 351 Winchester Self Loaders.
