Schneider and Glassick Officers Pocket Model
« on: February 01, 2012, 08:20:01 AM »
Made ya look, LOL! CVA brass framed Wells Fargo. I polished off the engraving, came with two cylinders, but I figured it was more accurate than a .44 brass framed 51 Navy. I always wondered why the Confederacy didn't just copy the pocket pistols if they were going to use brass. Would have saved material, the Wells Fargo would have saved even more iron, powder, lead, etc.

Liz, Great work on that. I really like the flat black on there.  ;)

Thanks Sam, the finish is bead blasted with Birchwood Casey Super Blue.

The brass frame makes for a neat looking Wells Fargo. Your re-finish came out very nice.

 Sure thing, Sam, just gotta get the camera fired up and a little time to do it. I built it from a kit back about '86 and refinished it a few times since.

Finally got around to finishing up the 'Schneider & Glassick' I.D. and antiquing. I didn't go the hard core antique, just made it look worn. No pitting or anything like that. I just used #2 Tripoli compound and Flitz in a paste rubbed it out, cleaned with acetone, re-blued with Birchwood Casey PermaBlue paste, then rubbed with the compound again several times. Got a nice, even finish. The stamping I intentionally screwed up in a couple of spots much like the real thing. Came out pretty good, I still just have to let the brass develop a good patina. Gonna try to get pics on tomorrow. Got a few irons in the fire right now.

I'm going to try that on one of mine.  ;)

Gotta get a pic outside, can't get a decent shot of the stamping.

A couple more pics, a little better quality. I am a bit of a perfectionist and deliberately screwing up the stamping kinda went against the grain, but, looks a bit more like some of the Confederate pistols I've seen pics of...

Hey Lizardo, I like it!  ;)
Could you post(when you get time) some pictures of the front looking into the barrel? I want to SEE how it looks since you removed the loading level. Thanks a bunch!  {?|

I'll get a pic, but it was originally a Wells Fargo without a lever. Been playing around with this thing for about 26 years, trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with it. Thanks!

Good Morning Lizardo, Okay...I see what you mean. I thought yours had a loading level and I was just wanting to SEE if you filled the hole up or left it open.  ;)
