G&G Sheriff
« on: January 08, 2018, 09:07:22 PM »
I'm new to this area of collecting, but certainly not to firearms, and I have a Navy Arms G&G Sheriff waiting for me at the LPS. The date code is AA but that is about all I have at this time. Any guesses on the maker ?

More than likely an ASM.  AA = 1975 mfg date

Agreed with Fingers. AFAIK, all the ASM G&G's were in .36 cal. Is yours?

Yes, 36 with the RA (Replica Arms ?) stamp on the frame. I just picked it up, lightly used. I bought it for my 14 year old to try to foster some interest. I'm sick of constantly seeing him on that computer phone.

ASM was usually pretty good about stamping their logo somewhere or another, and they had a number of variations on the logo. Look on the barrel under the loading lever, towards the breech end.

On that part of the barrel is E (or F) AP in a circle. Unlike my 1849 Pocket ASM.

That would make it a Pietta.

Yes, the pictures are what set these forums aside.

My sincere apologies, boys, but I have no clue how to do that.

This is the way I do it instead of using the forum's attachment method. Easy, squeezy, and it is free, unlike Photobucket anymore, and the photo will appear on your post.

If you have the photo(s) on your HDD or other device:

https://imgbb.com/

Just follow the prompts and copy and paste the photo when it is uploaded. Make sure you have it linked to the BB option.

Delete the second url as it is just advertising.

With a very minimum of practice it is a no-brainer.

I don't have a G&G Sheriff but I do have a Pietta G&G, and the pic is courtesy of ImgBB:



Looking forward to pics of your sheriff, sir!

I also have a Pietta Rigdon and Ansley:



These repros were only possible because of the Pietta G&G .36 part round/part octagon barrel, which they seem to not be producing these days.

Pietta is missing a huge repro market due to not producing these pistols, and prefer to make an abomination like the 1851 Navy Pepperbox which never was.

Some nice lookin' iron there, Jim. Is that the R&A you cut the extra notches in? I like it...

ikesdad, I use the (free) Flickr app and have had very good luck with it as well. I can walk you through posting pix if you need.

Again, my apologies as I have no idea what you guys are referring to. My camera has film.

Yes, it is. It's not factory "perfect" but it suits my purposes. I wish Pietta made just the 12-stop-slot cylinder, maybe available through Taylor's or VTI. Just think of the "fantasy" guns one could come up with! Mix and match, for sure.

Again, my apologies as I have no idea what you guys are referring to. My camera has film.

Wow! Back in a previous life I had a Canon F-1 35mm with many lenses and loved it dearly. That was over 20 years ago, and digital is so much easier and much less expensive. I sold the Canon to a collector several years ago.

If you have a camera phone you can shoot decent pics with a bit of practice. Both of my pics above were taken using my wife's phone (I don't have one!). I just transferred them to my hard drive, resized and cropped them to fit the forum page, and used

https://imgbb.com/

to upload them to that site, then copy and paste those images there to the forum. The other image hosting sites are similar, as mentioned above, but I am not familiar with them.

Maybe Ike can guide you through it.   ;D  30-40 year-old "kids" know a lot more than I do these days!

Good luck with your photo endeavors, sir!

Jim
