Agree, buzz. The mould always needs to be hot when casting, to help prevent wrinkles and voids. I'm fortunate not to have to mould mine. I was given several hundred pounds of sheet lead from a remodeled X-ray room, folded into big sheets. I just cut

Nice, Jim! I like vintage stuff too, just because it’s vintage. Great job cleaning up the old ones. I need to do the same with the Reed I bought. I will when it warms up and am also going to make a set of custom 4” lead jaw covers for it when it war

As you demonstrate so well, contemporary accounts, records, advertisements, case labels, and publications are the best sources for unravelling the story of gun development in the 1850s and 1860s. But I have to say, what really made my week, Gene, was

I believe that most of the W Richards marked guns made in Belgium were low-end Pieper made guns, though not 100% positive. My uncle had one of these Belgian made W Richards & was carrying it about his arm one day & stopped to work on a fence.

I think every aspect of newer production M70s could be looked at as a technical improvement, except that they don't make 'em like they used to. I'm thinking that you may have an advantage in that you may not have to insist on collector level conditio

I think buying a used vise is like buying a used gun. For me, if I go looking for it, I'm in trouble. If I luck into a great vise at a great price tomorrow, I'd probably grab it. My thought, never let the seller know I'm interested, you'd think the '

It is a might fine rifle, even my my nonbolt rifle perspective. I hope you get to hunt it someday soon. It would look really good next to an elk or mule deer.

That is a very interesting rear sight. I'm not well versed in them, so maybe it's my ignorance, but it looks unlike any I have seen before. Is it custom made or maybe a custom modification of a production sight? Caliber/chamber?
