Remingtons / Re: Spanish Remington

 About the laser engraving.  Never seen one with it. The one I have is beautiful and a real work of art in form and function.  Definitely not laser but true hand engraved. I consider it a collectable because of the low number manufactured and the good steel they are made of. In the same class as a good Belgian 1960 Centennial New Model Army. 

I'd like to add something here. Wolf's book on the Belgian Colts is a work of art. Good fer lookin at.

One other thing. In an add at Gunbroker Auction a fellow refers to his Pietta "Shooters" model Remington as a .457 Shooter. Maybe that is what it's called but..... the one I have has chambers measuring .456 and a .457 ball is too loose and moves forward in the chambers as one is fired. I have a hard to get .464 ball mould I acquired solely for the "Shooters" Model Pietta Remington.  Shoots like a laser beam with that .464 ball. One place only I know of to get a .464 ball mould is Pedersoli.  Rapine use to sell the .464 but is out of business and the other place that used to have a .464 was RCBS and they have it no more .Pedersoli at "Flint Locks Ect." have them.  Beauchamp is the persons name that has the Pedersoli products.

Hope I'm not out of line here. I've been out of line my whole life though.

They're all subject to being shot.  The 51 Navy has so far. I dont have the right size bzlls for th pocket models. The.323 balls are too big to load easily.  I need some .319 s or .321s

Dang it Fingers, you are getting some real gems lately!

Do you shoot any of the "real" Colts? Or do you plan to?

What is the date code? I have one marked BD/1994 (which looks like yours), along a spare grip assembly from another earlier ASM that won't fit the frame holes at the top of the backstrap.





Regards,

Jim

Shooting it won't devalue it by that much. It's not particularly rare or collectible. Just do it...you know you want to.

That's an amazing pistol Columbus. You're right, it's hard to believe no one has shot it in 30 years. It would be impossible for me to resist shooting it!

Army Models / 30 yr old ASM
« Last post by Columbus on March 18, 2020, 05:46:08 PM »
I got this a few months ago and don't know how it ended up staying in the original box, unfired, without a mark on it anywhere for 30 years.  Yes it's an ASM, but it's a darned nice ASM, the picture really doesn't do it justice.  Might just have to load it up, but might not.
