The Pocket Model is an original made in 1863.  In the bottom photo, the case, nipple wrench and cap in are modern.

 Nothing special? Still pretty nice. By “vintage” do you mean original or older reproduction?

Cased Sets / Cased 1849 Pocket Model
« Last post by Fingers McGee on January 20, 2021, 12:36:58 PM »
Mailman dropped this 1863 vintage, 6 shot, 4 inch barrel 1849 Pocket Model yesterday.  It's nothing special.  It has some bluing showing, along with faded case colors.   It locks up with no over rotation, and has no cylinder turn line. The case is by Bill's Cases, Flask is a modern reproduction, as is the cap tin.  Nipple wrench is 2nd Gen and the mold is a well used original - I think.  I've already swapped the Flask and mold with what I think are originals.  I need to get my Percussion Accoutrements book out and do some research.

I am shooting a pair of Centaure Marshal Long Cylinder conversions in CAS regularly since 2012, caliber is .44 Colt.
Mine are 5,5", the ones on the pic that Jared made are Centaure RNMAs cut to 6", also .44 Colt.

Agreed. Gary is awesome.

I had not heard of Mr. Baker. I'll have to look into that. Those long cylinder conversions are pretty amazing.

Gary Barnes is an experienced & respected conversion artist.
I am thinking of young Jared Baker of Long Hunter in Amarillo (www.longhunt.com).
I was highly impressed by this pair of Long Cylinder Conversions Jared built for a friend of mine from Belgian Centaures.

Your friend in Texas wouldn't happen to be Gary Barnes would it?
