I HAD one too, back in the 80s. Mine was a Sile. I shot it a bit, but a buddy of mine wanted it so off it went. He made a gas ring for it, took a buck that same year with it. I only shot loose powder and ball in it and didn't like the clean-up process.

Yep, I saw where it was marked Lyman-ASM on the barrel. I could not see a date code on any of the pictures, even when enlarged.

Hi all, yes I’m in South Australia, I didn’t take any pre work photos of this gun, I should have but just didn’t think to. Just hot blued it, and found that the new "all stainless steel thermometer " was plated brass on the bit that would normally screw into whatever it was designed for, the hammer and cylinder were the only bits still in the tank when the plating lifted, so they now have a slight copper colour to them, annoying, but not as annoying as a tack full of contaminated caustic

Yup, he said Down Under, that’s OZ, maybe Tasmania too.  Anyway, I don’t think he’s in Kansas anymore.

Welcome Grump!

It's an ASM copy of a Bob Tingle target pistol.

I did replace most of the photos....again! Got a couple out of sequence, but you get the idea.

This was one of the guns that sold last week at auction. I have always kinda wanted one, but with a lot of restraint, I let this one pass (trying to keep gun purchases to a minimum). It is a non-gun Remington look alike.

     remove the arbor, upset the shoulder of the arbor (leaving the threads as they are). The upset shoulder requires the arbor be torqued back in position. Oversized locking pin installed.
