Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

New parts just in time for mn state this weekend

 

 They won't be hard coated in time but I'll be able to do a little test and evaluation tomorrow during side matches

Lifters, right?  Remind me again why these are better than my stock ones.  (I've got a .357 carbine and a .45 short rifle)

Less resistance, plus I'm making some for originals that you just can't get anymore.   We plan to offer complete stainless steel 73s  eventually so we need to learn how to make the parts

Keep me in mind when you start doing that... I've got a B-Western look idea I want to do that would need all Stainless (not nickel plate) that would be perfect for.  (Think of a cross between Ace Hanlon and the handsome stranger...)

When you get done with the rifles I wish you'd start on a copy of the Colt SAA and then a hammered double ;)

I've got a few different ones made.  From brass to titanium , aluminum and some alloys.   They will be hard anodized when I'm happy with how the design is. 

  Not my machines.  My boss had given me free reign to start working on guns and parts.   We have the paperwork in to manufacture them so whenever it gets back from the gov. We will be ready to sell. We already make parts for some gun companies.

1873s aren't allowed for B-Western.  Of course if you're not in the category but just want the look you're fine.

I forgot about that part to be honest.  I'll likely be shooting that gear FCD at that point anyway.  It's all about having fun and Stainless is easier to see clean.

I would love to have a stainless 1873!  Heck I would be happy if I could just have stainless mag tubes for all our 1873s.

Maybe we will have to talk.   We primarily work with inconel and stainless.   We burn through about 15k worth of tooling a month

So I just have to ask, if business is good enough do you see a stand alone opportunity just building guns?

ED-Will you be making your own barrels from scratch then?

Not currently we have contacted a few barrel makers. Green mountain is what we are learning to right now.

When you start making Merwin barrels please let me know.

I have 2 that are fine.... except for the big split at the forcing cone. (both are 3rd models)

And another "parts-gun" that is close but also needs a barrel.

 

A working, new Merwin in any flavor would be nice,  (a pair actually)

 

The 1873 Winchester in stainless sounds great.

Not too picky where you start, 44 WCF, 38-40 WCF, or 32-20 WCF , would be good, but anything would be fun.

I could use an aluminum lifter for a .38 '73.  What do you charge for those?  Are they drop in, or do they need some fitting?  Note, I'm not scared of some fitting.


Shoot me a PM.

Doc right now we are looking for 5 people to demo one and give us feed back on them.. if your interested in this send me a PM.    We are still tweaking a few dimensions to make it a drop in fit for any rifle.    The last one off the line yesterday at 4:23. With a little filling to the channel with a jeweler's file i had it in the rifle and working by 4:28. Just in time to punch out for the day.  This morning I swapped it out in three rifles.  It fit and functioned as is in all three.

    When up and running we expect the price for a hard anodized aluminum .38 to be around $50 ish

I tried to send you a PM and got a message that you can't receive messages.  Once you have one ready for testing, let me know.

ED  

how long does it take to machine one, from start to finish?

 

any off-machine work before? (probably get it to the overall dimensions)
