LOL, good one, Ray.
Nothing gets by msgt.
I saw a similar design, so expanded on it. I put a notch in it for the hammer to keep the pistol from swinging and offset the holes in the piece that goes up against the grip/butt of the pistol so it can handle my Walkers and my 1860 Army. Made a dimple for the front sight, too.
Well, a tactical reload would be carrying an extra cylinder :wink:So basically this is a black powder tactical reload. lol
The pistol is a thing of beauty. Your woodwork stand is very clever for its intended use. Nice to have more than one hobby. Good work.:smile:It's supposed to make it easier to rotate the cylinder as you load each chamber. Especially with a big honkin' gun like a Colt Walker.
Thanks :smile:The pistol is a thing of beauty. Your woodwork stand is very clever for its intended use. Nice to have more than one hobby. Good work.:smile:
Thanks. I'll probably stain it tonight. After I knock the edges down some.That's pretty nice. I assume you're going to stain it. I hope you'll post up pictures after you do.
I have seen those. Slick little (simple) machines.Somewhere in the depths of my garage, I have a similar device meant to load only the cylinder of a BP revolver. Extra, pre-charged cylinders make for a very speedy (tactical?) reload. Ask any Civil War Calvaryman. :image035:
