BPC camming tool

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a Black powder cartridge camming  tool for an 1874 Sharps rifle, hopefully someone might have one they don’t use any more. Any information on where I might pick one up would be appreciated.  SCJ

Thanks Red Cent, are you familiar with this particular tool as far as being durable?

I have one from Sage for my High Wall, nicely made and durable.

I have a C Sharps Hi Wall. I use a dowel rod (doesn't touch primer) to push a stubborn round into the chamber. Most all that need the cam takes very little leverage to seat.

A couple years back someone was making the plastic cam and they were not reliable. I do not know if this is the same.  I don't think so since prior post says his works.

I have one made out of aluminum, I can't remember where I got it and my stuff hasn't been unloaded from my semi annual move. I'll look at it in the morning and see if there is a name on it. I have one for the Sharps and one for my Highwall.

I believe that the aluminum one came from Arizona Sharpshooters which is now defunct.  I heard that the son was going to open it up again but I cant find the website.
