Larsen Pettifoggers "Tuning The Open Top" files

here are some links to the Pettifogger files, which I posted with permission on the Wayback.


They are pdf only so you need to click on each one to view or download.
if your browser is set up with a pdf viewer it will open automagically.

I didn't know Open Range was down. Thank you for rescuing those files and posting them here Prof. I made it a sticky so it wont get lost.

Happy to help !

I think I am just a collector/curator/distributor of other peoples "good stuff" .   :P

I think in another life I could have had a lending library/bookstore with Maps . I love cartography
and with Clocks
and add watches
and an attached hardware store/gunshop.

After visiting Custer, S.D. I had a nightmare  dream passing fancy to try to acquire some cheap rural commercial property and turn it into a hardware store/bookstore/coffee shop/art gallery that would also dabble in Rondyvooz and old west "stuff".

Fortunately the fever passed.   )L$

I will try to post more of TOR "good stuff" later :-)

oh, and I like telescopes
and handtools, especially planes.
and old timey hand driven lathes and drillpresses.
and anything with gears.
and printing presses! 
somewhere in storage I have at least one old time "letterpress"
....

Re: Notches on Blued Cylinder too small for Stainless Bolt

You CAN widen the notched using a needle file. It is a painstaking, royal pain in the ass, though. Tell me again why you want to shove a blued cylinder in a SS gun? (^h
If you should decide to take the road less traveled (again;  (^h ) make sure you widen the notch on only one side ( See "Larsen Pettifogger's" excellent write-up on tuning the Colt revolvers....the same principles apply even though Remmies don't have lead-ins to the cylinder notches).

Those links are dead.

All links to www.theopenrange.net are dead since around November 2019, when Hedley took
The Open Range site down forever. Hedley sent me a complete archive of that forum on a
thumb drive, and I have been working to repost the best articles as I find time.
