Brass and Other Cartridge Casings / My own paper cartridge formers
« Last post by ShotgunDave on Today at 02:51:28 PM »
I'm sure a couple of you have seen how I make my paper carts. Pretty much the same way most fellas do. I have been wanting to try one of the various cartridge formers floating around, but didn't want to spend money on one. I was never a fan of Cliff Manley (RIP), so I wasn't about to get one of his. There's a couple other guys making them now, but I knew I could make my own.

So today I set out to do just that. Since I have a supply of resin now, I decided to make a couple. Here's how they turned out.





I think they'll work fine. I made one for round ball and the other for Johnston & Dow conicals. I'll make a few cartridges later, and report back here.

"Brand X" / Re: Pedersoli 209?

Hola Ricardo

I am (hopefully) taking delivery of a Ruger Old Army this week. The guy I'm buying it off had me buy some 209 shotgun primer nipples for it from a gunsmith in England.

I'm getting them off him as well as the revolver. The English gunsmith told me with a .457 round ball and NO POWDER they propel the round ball at 400 feet per second.

I'll chrono it when I get the chance to confirm.

Hi ssb - Zero experience with that 'toy' but it looks like fun (fun-toy).  At $267.50 I think I'll just stick with shooting my $45.00 4.5 mm spring powered pellet pistol. No gophers here. (7&

I wonder what velocity one may get with a 209 primer.  Anyway, too much money - too little gun.

For those from Rio Linda or the United Against Gun Violence Foundation the pellet pistol is not the Remington:

"Brand X" / Pedersoli 209?
« Last post by ssb73q on Today at 09:02:30 AM »
Hi, I have looked at this Pedersoli 209 derringer for some time:

https://www.dixiegunworks.com/index/page/product/product_id/8900/category/321/category_chain/312,318,321/product_name/PH0911+PEDERSOLI+GUARDIAN+209+DERRINGER++4.5MM

It has a rifled bore and uses 4.5mm lead balls and #209 primers for powder.

Does anyone here have any experience with this toy?

Regards,
Richard

Hi, installing the flash cups had the shotgun looking like a tall eared rabbit, ugly. I could also see how getting cap parts out trapped in the flash cups difficult. I decided to install the Mag-Spark 209 adapters. This is a photo with the Mag-Sparks installed.

Walkers & Dragoons / Re: Uberti Whitneyville Dragoon To Walker Conversion

For anyone who is interested, I just checked and  the NIB Uberti Walker is still there, with a Tripple K holster to fit it still in the plastic bag for $425 or best offer.  Go to the site, go to "classifieds", then to "handguns" and once there go to search at the top of the page and put in Walker, and the one gun pops right up.  GF

If I had a Whitneyville it would be left as a Whitneyville. They are what they are. Even if it were possible I'd not alter anything.  Tune it and shoot it.

My WH Dragoon will remain as such. All I was asking is if the Walker barrel assembly/cylinder was a straight swap, and it is not without a change of arbor, and I am not going there.

Since that pipe dream is done, my next one is to procure a Pietta 1861 Navy .36 or an 1861 complete barrel assembly to install on a Pietta 1851 Navy 2nd Model with a SB TG and smooth non-engraved cylinder.

Base guns:






Lego gun, but it will be a true Frankengun.

I suppose if that happens I could be very devious, defarb/antique it, and advertise it on GB as an experimental Colt gun and ask beaucoup bucks for it, but...

I won't do that.

I am off topic.

Regards,

Jim

I looked at that site. I did not see the Walker but the Dragoon is an Uberti 1848 Whitneyville Hartford Dragoon for $400. A decent price but it can be had new for less. Got mine from Midway for $360 a couple of months ago.

Thanks for the heads up!

On the Georgia version of the Outdoors Trader there are both an Uberti Walker and based on the cylinder notches a first model Dragoon for sale.  I have no relationship with either seller.  GF
