    I recall someone had a Remmy Shortie a while back and he sold it, causing him to have buyers remorse later. He said he would want another if he found one. If ya see this PM me, I think I found one for ya.
    Sorry, me CRS has advanced to CRAFT, bad memory.

    That is one slick lookin gun @Dirtmandave! Hopefully I'll get around to making a snubbie one of these days.

    I saw a brasser snubbie just like that. I passed because I was not sure how the cylinder pin would stay in place when fired.
    Am I missing out on something, because otherwise I would have bought it?

    If you tap on my picture it will enlarge the you will see the cylinder pin has a notch and the ram has a catch like on the other end of a full size ram. Michael "Tinker" Pierce over on "The High Road Forum" made mine for me. He has done several different styles. My catch was the lastest type and he's suck with that style for now.

    Thanks, but I was referring to the picture of the brass revolver.
    Handled one at the local pawn shop. Identical to the picture. You could pull out the cylinder pin real easy.
    Not sure how the pin would stay in place under recoil.

    Hello snubnose57,

    I've seen guys put a small detent in the cylinder pin with a vlier pin mounted above.
    When the ball of the viler pin hits the detent, it holds the pin in place. Also Howell's
    makes a Cylinder Quick Release which mounts on the rammer mounts.
