Gunsmithing/Tuning/Parts & Repairs / Old school cylinder flutes.
« on: May 13, 2018, 09:45:35 PM »
  I tried machining cylinder flutes on my Kirst 5 shot cartridge conversion for my 1860 Uberti to copy the ones on my 1862 Uberti. I could have got them to match a little closer if I'd used two different machining operations but I got lazy and just used one. I did it with a 5/8" ball mill. I just touched it up with cold blue, gotta get a hot blue set up one of these days.

Welcome Wagon / Another refugee from the 1858 Forum
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:38:37 AM »
Hello,
       Some of you already know me from the 1858 Forum. I have been lurking here for a few years and finally decided to join. The decision came about because my open top Colt stable has doubled the number of 1858's Remmie's I own. I'm now up to a Uberti 1860, both a Pietta and Uberti 1862, and a pair of 1851 Uberti's with consecutive serial numbers.  That doesn't cover the numerous modern Colt revolvers and automatics I have in my gun safe. I look forward to talking 150 year old tech with you guys!   L@.
