Manhattan .36 cal. Mold
« on: March 01, 2019, 01:42:59 PM »
My new to me Manhattan Fire Arms bullet - round ball mold arrived today! I goes nicely with my original Manhattan .36 cal. revolver.

I appears to have originally been nickel plated. Quite a bit of it is left. In the pictures I am including you can see it especially around the name area. In that area it says, " Manhattan / Fire Arms Manufs Co. NY

Notice the lube groove in the conical side.

Len (on this forum) also has an original Manhattan and he ended up with my original mold to go with his gun.

Yes I have. Thank you Mazo for fixing me up with a original mould.
And tljack's photos show what the cutter screw should look like.
I shall try to modify that one.
