    Allen & Thurber Pepperbox question

    I was thinking of something along the lines of a 12 x 28 pistol nipple. T/C usedto make something low profile for their Patriot. And there were some similar ampco nipples. They may require additional modification and such. But I just don’t know what the inside will look like once I drill in and...

    Allen & Thurber Pepperbox question

    This is exactly what I thought. ( Same model btw). Thanks for reply. ( Not my gun, I was asked by the owner if he thought it possible. I was very skeptical even then).

    Allen & Thurber Pepperbox question

    Simple question. Have any of you with the capabilities ever attempted to replace the integral percusson nipples in an original A & T pepperbox? Is there enough “meat” at the breech end to d&t for an appropriate nipple? i think archaeologist son has my Flaydermann, so I can’t look model up. (...

    Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery firarms.

    Interesting read. Thanks contributors!!! Much appreciated. From my point of view, I believe all of the rifles mentioned have a rich and interesting story to tell regardless of any Corps of Discovery affiliation! ( oh, meant to mention. Bravo 1/23, USMCR, 75-81)

    1840-60 period ignored

    Those are wooden marking gauges. Later I will try to lay out some items for a better view. Some may not actually be 1850 vintage, but they are just like what would have been available. Just manufactured a bit later.

    I am working on a secondary impression. That of a civilian contractor, "mechanic" or carpenter. I am too old for a military impression and there were an abundance of contractors employed at this post. (Lets not forget the frivolities of "Scabtown" just off post).

    Survey contractors staying over at Ft. McKavett Texas, circa 1855. Apparently they like the army’s protection. What would you expect from a pair of geezers???

    James Bowie

    For those interested, here’s a dang close copy (if not exact) of the Perkins-Shively Bowie which I believe Rezin had made (by Mr. Shively of Philadelphia) possibly as early as 1828. The original is in possession of the Mississippi Historical Society. Some believe ( notice I wrote some) that this...

    Wanted Single Pole Tent

    This statement is open certainly open for discussion. But while reading thru the diary of a Spanish priest accompanying the Journada of the Marquis de Aguayo (1720) along one of the Camino reals he notes that during a storm "the tent pole" of one of the soldados was struck by lightening. I...

    SOLD .45 Ohio Style Rifle

    Well they always would shoot. And they have a cult following down here. He was from the old school that was making stuff before commercial items were available. C. P. Russell utilized him and his rifles in his epic "Firearms, Traps, and Tools of the Mountain Men"
