Galzan's is out, and a new one is needed. Anyone have a new, or very nice used, nickel oval shield for sale?

Thank you.

Hi Mark. I’m having on replaced in an English pigeon gun that is too thin at the edges.

Bill the best fit in my opinion will be to buy a small piece of flat stock ( Sterling or nickel silver)from a jeweler and hand fashion an exact fit or slightly larger and then inlay the new oval.
I have had a local jeweler that specializes in custom sterling jewelry make many of these for me.

Bill,

I have a thin (.020") rectangular piece of Nickel Silver that is just big enough for an oval, I think. I could it send to you. Let me know.

Now sure why it is called Nickel silver, there is no silver in it, it is an alloy of copper and nickel, and maybe some zinc.

It sure is difficult to saw cut, for some reason.

Good plan. I don't have a relationship with a jeweler at this time, but will explore forging one. Thanks.

Get a worn out silver halve dollar or silver dollar from a coin shop and have one made. Pittsboro has a first sunday and the artist you seek are there and if you give them the pattern im sure the piece can be made. I'm not sure what time in the day it starts but that can be found out.

It's also called German silver, commonly used as inlays and furniture on muzzleloaders. I personally would not use it for a nice doublegun shield. It doesn't look the same, IMO. I'd use an old coin to make it, too, if I could not buy one ready made out of real (sterling) silver.
