WTB 38 short & 38 rimfire cartridges

Recommended Posts

I have a co-worker looking for a few 38 shorts and a few 38 rimfire so he can help his grandfather shoot his heirloom guns one more time. If you have any to spare let me know.

38 short Colt, or 38 Smith & Wesson? Both have frequently been called 38 short, and they do not interchange.

I have  38 short Colt & 38 SW brass I can send you. You would have to reload it.

Just a thot for you to consider. Dixie Gun Works ( and possibly other outfits too) used to sell rimfire conversion cartridges.  I bought some for an antique S&W 32 rimfire. Basically they’re solid brass machined down to rimfire cartridge sizes. They take a round ball, small charge of black powder, and use a 22 blank. Enables me to shoot the old pistol. 

If DGW still stocks them, would be a way to recall the heirloom piece to active duty.
