I watched the video.  I’m not certain, but was it about “pocket” models ?  I lost count of how many times he said the word “pocket” or “pockets”.  He could tighten up his script.  L@J

Hi Calibre58, a real Fredrick Remington - WOW  (jh

The closest I own to a Frederic Remington is a Uberti commemorative 1851, The Cowboy:









(The photos are from LeatherSmithMike.)

This revolver is the slickest operating revolver I own, someone did a magnificent tuning job on the revolver.

Regards,
Richard

C58

I can’t think of a better or more appropriate foreground to your gun display than some original Fred Remington.  Really cool.

Trump has one in the Oval Office, I think.

Well done!

Great collection, Calibre58.    Is that some Charlie Russell bronze below the gun case?

***   ***
Frazier says that the various pocket mods that did not have a loading lever could only be loaded by taking the cylinder off the gun and using the arbor to press the bullet into the chambers. 

Wasn’t there a brass tool / rammer independent of the gun with a wide fore end that was used to press the bullet using palm pressure and that fit through what was otherwise the hole in the frame for the rammer (had one been attached)?  Did the pockets without a rammer still have that channel?

Honestly gentlemen, I’m developing some reservations as to the level of Mr. Frazier’s expertise.

Not parts but tooling. The pocket navy was introduced because Colt couldn’t keep up with demand for the 1862 pocket of navy caliber so they converted some of the 1849’s tooling to produce 1849’s of navy caliber

They couldn’t make enough “Police” style to meet demand so they filled it with “navy” style

Although navy really refers to caliber (0.36)
