    Miniature Cannon and cannon ball

    By Gum I knew it - I think I saw it way back when I was I was in Jr. High back in the later mid '60's. Left for the Army in '72 - so I know it was before that. I know I've said it before, but back then old Turner was a Voice in the Wilderness....

    Measuring Cylinder Gap 1851 Navy

    Thanks Guys. Got a Uberti London Model Navy a couple years ago, and got sidetracked after initial sessions, and am now trying to whip it into shape. No stranger to BP; in fact first BP Gun I ever purchased was a Replica Arms Walker when I was 16 in the late 60's. I worked all summer to save up...

    Amusette

    Wow - Didn't know Rap Forge made them! Speaks volumes about how highly regarded they were at the time. I can see how a Continental or Militiaman might feel somewhat smug taking Pot-Shots from behind a pile of Split Rails, or from the Window of a Brick Farmhouse, as Musket Balls splattered...

    Amusette

    Been some time since I contributed anything to the Forum; life has been Hectic. But I have kept a voyeuristic Eye on the Forum all along - checking in several times a week and seeing what's going on. Hope to contribute a bit more here and there in the Future - more later. Anyway, have always...

    Patterson Colt

    I think Wes/Tex sums it up when asking why the Colt design was the one that came to Dinner & stayed - despite birthing Pains, it was indeed "Light Years ahead of anything else available at the time..."

    Patterson Colt

    While we're at it, was the Patterson completely the Brainchild of Sam'l Colt, or is there more to the Story? Seems the Patterson, while not ignored, does kinda get glossed over. But in the History of Firearms Development, it really was a very, very Big Deal...
