Long winter up here, made a nest for my ‘49. Also made a nipple wrench, screwdriver, cleaning jag, cleaning rod, form for rolling paper cartridges, and a bronze loading lever extension. I’m pleased with how 00 buck (.33) loads and shoots.

The Remington, it's nicer looking and has a top strap, it was my 2nd capnball. As others have said "I should have never sold it.

nice, which bullets do you fire in yours?

and you offer a mold to cast those bullets?
I offer a .31 conical, but I'm out of stock right now. It will be a month or two before I get them. They shoot very well in the Colt .31, but are too long to fit in the Remington .31 pocket.

No one makes them this pretty any more--Uberti imported by Allen Firearms, Santa Fe New Mexico, 1985. Silver plated trigger guard and backstrap, charcoal blue. It has been fired a lot over the years but I have kept it clean and oiled so it retains most of the original finish.

unfortunately I cannot fire the original cylinder because I cannot get any of my percussion caps to fit the cones, so I am getting a modern cylinder fitted so I can fire this .31 pocket revolver

Fitting caps to cones/ nipples is not a problem. Details of fitting problem?...c

none of my Remington nor CCI percussion caps, neither #10 nor #11, fit snugly on the cones, even if I pinch them slightly... they all simply slide off

My original with some silver plate still showing. It really should be in a case, any good after market ones? I'm great with metal but not so with wood ha ha. And don't sell a .31 short as my carry is 32 acp and I never felt under gunned working in NYCIMG_0040.JPG
