    WOW Rube I am having a hard time making out some of the detail BUT that looks some really artistic stamping mixed with just a little knife work.  I wish my old eyes still worked some better, it looks very interesting.  That antique buckle is an attention grabber also. 

    Thank you. That was my first time trying to carve and tool a design in a holster rig. Its not perfect but I am very pleased with it. 

  2. This is still available. Maybe price is too high but I am open to offers on this. 


    Some things that I am looking for are but not limited to the following;

    Black powder loading stand. 

    Polish Capper

    Track of the Wolf Nipples

    Period style powder flask

    1860 or 1861 pistol

    Leather Rifle Scabbard

    Colt style display box for 1851 or New Model Army




    I am obviously open to much more and cash can go either way with the right trade deal. Just tried to think of a few things.

    For things like that it is sometimes just necessary to find a friend who has a lathe and have them make one for you. I have made many parts for some of my topbreaks, just takes a lot of hand work. Do you have the old part?


    I am not aware of any of my friends who know how to do that. 

    I do not have the original part. It fell out at some point. I know it used to be there but its long gone now for many years. Just kind of been wanting to get it back up and running. 


    It has sentimental value because my grandmother used to pack this in a belt holster around her farm when I was little and I remember it well. Then in her later life she had it in her purse. 

  4. I am looking for a firing pin for a Hopkins & Allan Safety Police .32 top break revolver. I am including a photo of the firing pin as well as the schematic from Numrich that shows it (number 23). 


    This is the small frame top break revolver. 


    If you have one or know ANYWHERE to get one please let me know.


    I have checked Numrich and the usual places such as ebay and gunbroker.



  5. Picked up these two racks after someone told me about them locally. Holds the Schofields and 51 Conversions perfectly. The Ruger New Vaquero fits loosely and the old vaqueros are too fat. Actually have to press them down in there. Works well though.

    For lighting these work at $1.99. Harbor Freight and others


    I have one of these in my old stack on safes and they work okay while batteries are full but start to put off less and less light.

    You might look to see if the manufacturer sells a door panel that allows handguns to be stored in pouches.   My safe has that and it holds 6-8 handguns, depending on barrel lengths.  I also have shelving on one side of the interior that holds all sorts of stuff.




    It does have a few pouches for handguns which I put a few of my smaller revolvers and such in.

    I have a smaller safe, maybe 12-15 long guns.  One shelf above.  Not enough room for a stand-up handgun rack.  So I use the S-style wire hangers.  I have 10 handguns neatly suspended below the shelf, ranging from 2.5 - 5" barrels.  I could easily accommodate 7" barrels.  They are  plastic coated, so no scratching or marring.  My only criticism is that in the darkness below the shelf, it's sometimes hard to see the end of the hanger to re-hang a gun; I need to add a light inside the safe.  



    Thanks for the input. I wondered how those would fare with the larger guns. Good to hear they can handle them. 

  9. I recently broke down and bought a big 64 gun safe. Before now I have had a couple of the larger stack on safes crammed with rifles and the revolvers and such were kept in the zip up bags or the original boxes. 


    Instead of trying to reinvent the the wheel I thought I would ask here. How do you store your revolvers in your safe? I have seen the hangers that go in the barrel, the racks that hold the guns upside down some that hold them right side up etc. What do you use? Which works best with cowboy style revolvers, some with up to 8'' barrels or so? 


    Photos are always a plus but understand if you don't want to post pics. 


    Not much around here locally so I would have to order most anything I get. Figured I would try to only order once. 


    Thanks in advance for any help.
