    RWS #11's - AMCO Nipples?

    Thanx HillBilly. My main concern is if they're a good fit on the Ampco's I put on the Uberti Cap and Balls I have, which fir/work fine with Remington 10's & 11's. I've heard some say the RWS 11's are a good fit on Ampco's, but others say they may need a Pinch - which scares me. Only chainfire I...

    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....

    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...

    1803 Harper's Ferry

    What caliber is it, and what's it got for Rifling? Back in the day I got one of the Navy Arms Harper's Ferry's, which was made by Antonio Zoli. The Barrel was basically their .58 Cal with 3 Groove Shallow Minie Rifling, which actually shot a Round Ball surprisingly well. I replaced it with a...

    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..."
