Here are a pair of Griswold and Gunnisons, both have identical markings, Navy Arms barrel address, G&U on right side of barrel lug, serialnumbe 1712 has a date code of 1861, serial number 1052 has no date code.  Pistols are unfired.

That will be a great project. At least for me it is nice these shooters are not to complicated. Maybe, just maybe that is why I am attracted to them. (j*

How did your project turn out Terry?

That mold you have is an original Colt mold.  It has the "Colt's Patent" and the ".31PKT" stampings right where they belong.

I knoow this is an old moldy thread; but it is worth resurrecting IMNSHO

In working on my second gen collection, I started expanding it to include individual accessories and sets.  This  .31 caliber mold; whie not a 2nd Gen is interesting because it pre 1990 NOS made in USA and sold by a BP importer.

I love this idea Capt. Keep their memory alive.

I also hope that this list stays as small as it is.

Powder Flasks / 2nd Gen Flasks
« on: July 22, 2020, 12:24:41 PM »

Back in April of 2018 I posted this information on 2nd Gen powder flasks.  I figure it would be nice to post it again to stir some interest on the Collecting Forum

Listed and shown below are 7 of the nine different 2nd Gen flasks,  The two missing are variations of the Walker/Dragoon flask. All 2nd Gen flasks, except the Dixon bag flask, have Colt's Patent embossed on the face.


W5095 - Small Eagle flask with deep blue/black finish for Baby Dragoon, Pocket Navy, and Pocket Police flask
W5046 - Bag Flask in the US Grant Commemorative 1851 Navy
W5047 V1 - Medium flask with deep blue/black finish for F series 1851 and 1861 Navies
W5047 V2 - Medium flask with a blue/gray finish in the R.E.Lee commemorative 1851 Navy
W5047 V3 - Medium flask with a pewter finish for late C series 1851 Navies
W5083 - Medium flask with a heavy blue/black finish for F series 1860 Armies.
              The W5047 V1 and W5083 are identical except for the powder spout.
 W5056 V1 - Walker/Dragoon flask - other variations are finished or stamped differently.

Stainless Steel Replicas / Re: Some of the SS Uberti Colts
« on: July 20, 2020, 02:15:39 PM »
I really like that 1861 Navy squareback. It is not historical, but neither is stainless, so I am feeling much better now!  8)

Did I mention that I really like squarebacks?

Very nice pistols!

Regards,

Jim

I know that now.  The squareback on the 1861 was not catalogued, so, its probably a one of a kind. It was one of the six I sold last year. The 1861 that was part of Dr, Davis' collection has a round trigger guard.
