  1. Can I ask what problem you had with the auto-rim set? That is what I was going to try.
  2. El Cupajoe: Just wanted to say that I love your sign-off quote. When I was a child in Kansas City, the local CBS affiliate would sign off with Anita Bryant singing that verse of the Star Spangled Banner. Until now, I'd never encountered anyone but me who knew about it and liked it.
  3. OK, if it were mine, I'd shoot it for a while and then consider a restoration. It's not mine, it's yours (and you're a lucky devil for getting a real Colt at that price). It comes down to: Do you have the money and are you willing to spend it, without thought of profit or resale value? You're probably never going to recoup the price of the restoration --- but if you enjoy the gun more restored, spend the money and hang the expense.
  4. My "cowboy shotgun" is a Husqvarna copy of a Greener, but this year I've been in acquisition mode, and now I have an actual Greener, an LC Smith and a Parker (both in 16 gauge) and the Savage 311 that was my old CAS shotgun. If COVID ever lets up and there are matches again, I don't know how I"m going to decide. Sounds like you made a great acquisition with the SKB. Congrats!
  5. I've shot many a match with Doc Hurd -- so happy to hear this. Congratulations to him!
  6. If no one takes the package, I'd be interested in the moulds and sizing die.
  7. I just find the hammer type so slow to use. I'd change to anything to speed up the process.
  8. I don't have contact information, but I agree with those who suggest contacting Dusty Rogers. I had the pleasure of shooting on a posse with him at the Missouri State Championships in 2000 in Branson (a great match, by the way, put on by great people). He's friendly and approachable, and will give you any information he has.
  9. Either term is meaningless in the context of the sport.
  10. I don't understand the desire to use non-lubed bullets, but you can make this 2 parts by weight Paraffin wax 2 parts by weight Sheep Tallow (Dixie Gun Works) 1 part by weight Beeswax You can also substitute Crisco for the sheep tallow. What you end up with is, except for the aroma, indistinguishable from SPG. It should be malleable enough to put on the front of the cylinder. It works great when put in the lube grooves on the bullet.
  11. When I first started in CAS I didn't cast lead bullets, and the most readily available .45s were 230-grn lead roundnose, and I shot them for at least two years before I started casting. I never had a problem -- but I still don't think it's a good idea. I think you are unlikely to set off a primer with a round nosed bullet. I think you will definitely not set off a primer with a flat nose bullet. That little gap between "unlikely" and "definitely" is the area where I define safety, and I'd rather be on the safer end of things. Your mileage may vary.
  12. "Firearms must operate as intended by the original pre-1900 designs they depict." Ha ha ha ha ha
  13. The original post is talking about the Colt Signature series repop of this musket: http://nramuseum.com/guns/the-galleries/a-nation-asunder-1861-to-1865/case-15-union-muskets-and-rifles/colt-special-model-1861-contract-rifle-musket.aspx Which was Colt's kinda/sorta copy of the three-band Enfield musket and was made throughout the Civil War. It was rifled. I agree with those above who say the Colt Signature Series is overpriced.
  14. One year at that event I got to shoot J.B. Hogdon's gatling gun. Sorry it doesn't exist anymore.
