Short play long time run Final 1858-1863 Army Finshed
« on: April 20, 2015, 01:02:35 PM »
I haven't been on I while just busy , family, health , Life. In between I did get to make  cut by hand  Back Plate for this old Pistol. Yes did take picture of whole event and what I discovered and made mistakes on and about. But final was better than I though possible. It works very good. Haven shot it yet but that was not in the plan but I believe it possible now. May give grips another coat of Linn Seed oil .I'll post more in future.  this is what it came out to be. Thanks for all encouragement. Soiltec (k-

I know "old iron" found his Remmie in a pawn shop; where did you find yours? I would dearly love to get something like those guns! I have been following a few on auctions, etc. but the really nice ones bring big bucks (as they should) and I don't want a rusted shut hunk of iron either.

That looks great, man!  If I had something like that I think I'd have to fire it, at least one in a great while.

Am I seeing things, or is that a modified original percussion cylinder?  There seems to be a different alloy stuck on the back of it.  IRRC, they would have turned it back to remove the capping cutouts, silver soldered a new section on the back, and then bored it through.

That had me looking hard at the cylinder also, but I missed the different shade
of metal, good eye Omnivore.
So what is the history of this design or was it a one off ?????

To Hewy, The cylinder , From what I seen of lot of others is  Remington modified to Roland White patented .looks like the cut the cylinder then added  portion to it . Cant find any Patent Stamp on it but it does have R and w stamp both very worn but there. I think this was latter version of Roland White type Conversion . Cartridge is Remington 44 or Colt 44 diminutions. many Back plates were different on lot of conversions and that was hardest part to figure how to make. Until I looked at the inside of Frame. And used clear plastic to make Template .

Mazo-Kid, I found it on Gun Brokers , Traded guy Flint lock and small amount of cash . I wasn't sure if it was original ether. Then I didn't know if I could get it going again. Guy II got it from bought it at Estate Sale in North Carolina , Family couldn't remember who what where other than guy was family was in civil War , carried it then went to Colorado to prospect came back with some gold and had it converted. No papers to prove it but still good story.  Here's picture of Cartridge cases I made from 44-40 cases . Had to turn down rims like the 44 Rem Cartridge for them to fit they drooped right in   :9)

Sorry to hear about your tests. Hope it's nothing serious.
