>>41997996Moar picsI've got a chub
>>41997996Its fucking superb
>>41998015It's a Sharps, my dude
>>41998015That's a Sharps rifle.
>>41997996Seriously man buy the fucking mares leg. I don't give a shit which brand you buy. If you want something pistol-sized that's NR, then that's the best format on the market.
>>41998065I'm not that guy, but I will eventually. I'm a big McQueen fan
>own Model 1897>likely saw action in San Toy>and mean saw action since someone got shot there practically every week>problem is San Toy died out in the '20s or '30s>and this thing is so weathered that you can barely make out it was chromed>wanna restore it myself since it was gramp's but not good enough; only put ARs together>most gunsmiths won't touch it>few who would are outta my price range>so it sits, the bolt will hang out if you work the action>but then again, San Toy is only a few bits of rubble anymore
>>41997996kinda jelly desu
>>41998134>shooting a boar with a Walker and a DragoonThese are my kind of guys
I really need a single action. ignore the ruger trash
>>41998268I always wondered what could make a boomer just snap like that.
>>41998316Monster Energy goes out of business
>>41997873Pietta 1860 Army, hat from visiting Gettysburg, book from cleaning out dead old relatives stuff
>got a brand new New Vaquero in .357>the transfer bar shit the bed under 200 rounds of just .38 special, entire gun bricked>Ruger insists that I send the gun in to be serviced instead of mailing the parts (no problem)>They also insist that I pay $30 for shipping>Won't budge on it even though it was clearly defectiveAt least the Italians don't blow smoke up your ass about warranty work
>>41998547That's one hell of a toothpick.
>>41998115>most gunsmiths won't touch itLately, it seems as though most gunsmiths won't work on anything that requires more effort than breaking out an allen key set. The ones in my city don't actually know how to reblue or nickel any firearms
>>41998316>what could make a boomer just snap like that.Prozac
>>41998268his literal jam-o-matic :(looked like he had to un jam it every 5 shots.
My 45 colt black hawk
>>41998065You should buy a mares legand then you should fucking kill yourself with it, homo
>>42000254Is...Is that man wearing a Tweed hat on top of a ski mask?
>>41997873Some fine western cannons itt.
>>42000267about as irish as it gets
pietta or uberti?
This my problem solver right here.
>>42000267Is that a problem?
>>41998569Only opening up a market for people who knows what the fuck they're doing.
>>41998134That pict is 110% fuckin' American, i tell ya what
Post shotguns or your first wife will die of polio
>>41998569Is there actually kind of licensing or education required to call yourself gunsmith in the US?
>>41998339That looks nice but something about it looks slightly off
>>42004224>>41998339Oh wait I see what it is, the grips are bigger, did you switch those out yourself or did they come with whatever brand/model you ordered?
Can I play cowboy with you?
I don't have any levergats right now, only a ruger .22 single action. Should I buy a levergat first, or should I get a full bore revolver?
>>41997873/k/ I have a plan...
This is my most recent cowboy gun - an 1851 'Man With No Name' conversion in .38 Colt/.38 Special.
>>41998134Why the fuck does that guy on the right look so familiar?
>>41998547What caliber is that lever action?
I'm have a crush on the Springfield 1873 carbine, does anyone have any experience with them?
Is there even a such thing as a cheap cowboy gun :(
>>42005901Heritage Rough Rider. $120 new, very solid, very fun.
>>42005979Wow. you put me on game. Thanks man.
>>42005758not that anon but looks like 357mag.>>41998547mirin' the black bart aesthetic
actually i guess it's a 30-30 and the pistols a 357. going by the belt.
>>42005758The lever action is 30/30.
I wanna buy that Henry side gate so baaaadly.
>tfw no single action yet.I don't what compels me to want a single action revolver, holster and belt but it's very slowly eating me away.
Does anyone know where you can get a relatively inexpensive cartridge belt? Was even considering modifying a civil war style belt with loops and throwing a slim jim holster on it
>>42007046Triple K western belts are nice, I got one in black.
>>41998303this is me, I took the marlin 39 down for cleaning and I made a little gif of how the action works for those interested. this is pre- marlin 39a but the action is the same
>>42004065think it's just an FFL.
>>42007143thank, it's a pretty gun
>>42005700Is that a cylinder swap or is it built from the start?
You hussy's ever heard of the 45-70 revolver? Yall'd've heard now. I prezent muh big iron.
>>42007026Partner, why won't you join us in Flavor Country?
>>42007257These are built as cartridge guns rather than actual conversion of percussion revolvers. It uses the 1871/72 frame with the 1851 barrel assembly.Here’s a photo alongside my 1851 Navy to show the differences in dimensions. Most noticeably, the cylinder is larger in diameter.
>>42007299Its Flavor Town to you, buster.
>>42007338Interesting so I could theoretically piece one together? Also what was total cost
>>42007338isn't .38 colt a heeled bullet? how does that work in a .38 special compatible gun
>>42007371The cylinders are not compatible between those two revolvers.>>42007389.38 Centerfire and .38 Colt Navy used heeled bullets - .38 Long Colt used inside lubricated bullets which was carried over to the .38 S&W Special. This revolver is chambered for .38 Long Colt and .38 S&W Special.
>>42007295I've heard those things are physically painful to shoot.
>>42007439not really unless you have babby wrists/hands
tfw my only sidearm is 45... Auto.>the Glock Automatic Pistol of 45 rounds
>>42005851I have a H&R repro and I really like it. .45-70 is pretty fun to shoot but you really want to look into the lighter carbine loads if you aim to shoot more than a box or two in a range session.
>>42005700I've heard bad things about these. How's it work?
I am looking to get a spinny boi. What should I get?
Well damn it I never thought to just take a picture of my gun belt.
>>42011164assuming you mean a cowboy gun.I want an Uberti 1875 in 45LC, but can't really justify it to myself. I already have a semiauto in 45, and would be more inclined to take a lever rifle over pistol anyway.
>>42011221nice setup fren!those look like vaqueros and a henry in... 357?
>>42011262That’s right there pard. .357 is God’s choice of magnums.
>>41998065Post your mares leg
>>42003889how about photos of my first wife who has shotgun legs because of polio
>>42006982I could use a gate too anon
>>42009154Wtf, Century Arms is out of St. Louis!?
>>42007464I had one with 7.5" barrel. I didn't enjoy shooting it with factory level I loads, level II were painful.. the most fun I had was using trail boss to replicate original black powder loads, it was a fun handcannon then. I also worked up a few cartridges with some resized 520gr lead cast bullets and only threw them softly with trail boss.. those were fun too.
>>41998015Prime example of summer child pretending to know guns to feel like hes part of club.
>>42012578Fren... cowboys are frens. Not mean.
>>42011415Jealous desu. That would've been my choice of setup if I had gotten a vaquero instead of 1911. 357 mag has got to be something to behold out of a rifle.
>was gonna get it in .357>friend tells me to get in .45 long colt>friend was right in doing so
To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
>>42011245Got one of these about a month ago. I fucking love it. Need to find some good leather for it. I'm thinking about getting the black powder cylinder to LARP as a dragoon but not fully committed.
Haven't been around here in forever. Glad to see the cowboy threads are still around though.
Have this terrible innnate desire to buy an 1851 Navy, Springfield trapdoor, and Sharps rifle. No idea why it's there until I visit my dad and go through some of his old guns realizing he had all of those and I'd played with them as a young child before I knew anything about guns. Weird thing is I want the Sharps rifle and Springfield carbine, the opposite of what he has
>>42013302.357/.38 may be cheaper and more practical but God it just feels so right to ruin your wallet for .45
>>42013591>Buy reloading shit>Literally never care about the price of ammo again
>>42013398Why. What the fuck.
>>42011221Nice thigh holster, hollywood. Dont you know those where only ever used in the movies?
>>42013489This please the eyes
>>42008322I'm surprised you've heard anything negative about an Uberti single action. The action is smooth and the trigger break is crisp. There's not a great deal to improve upon. I could see complaints if it were a brass-framed Pietta with a conversion cylinder.
>>42013489I rarely see other Cavalry-lengths around here.Here's a photo of my Cimarron '7th Cavalry' Model P.
>>42012946Yeah I usually call out people who pretend to be knowledgeable about things they know nothing about in a very aggressive manner but in this case it was completely alright and you did nothing wrong
>>42011557yeah wtf, im somewhat proud of my hk knockoff now
>>42013981I absolutely adore longer barrels on pretty much all handguns. I love the look and I love the slightly muzzle-heavy balance when shooting. I'd really like to see the 1873 Cattleman from Taylor's that has the 7.5" octagonal barrel, it's hard to find good images of online but I bet it's awesome in a quirky way.
>>42014300I recall EMF made a line they called "Alchemista" which paired the 1860 grip frame, trigger guard and hammer to the SAA frame. The Alchemista III also had an octagonal barrel but I'm not certain if the 7.5" model was available in a non-engraved form.As for long barrel octagons - the 1851's and 1858 conversion scratch that itch for me!>>42007338The 1858 has an 8" barrel.
>>41997873colt navy replica for carry, good idea or bad?i know a modern gun is more effective, but an old gun on my person will be more effective than a new gun at home
>>42014607DependsHow often will you shoot it?
bullets made of silver? weak what about....PISTOL MADE ENTIRELY OUT OF SILVER???
>>42013480I always recommend El Paso saddlery. Or try making your own. I've got some calfskin I want to use, dunno if to make a hat or a holster or what.>>42013697This, too. I wanted to get into 45-70 from the start, so reloading was always going to be necessary. Keeping it all in the .452-.458 range between ACP/LC/Gov't is pretty convenient.
>>42007345why am I even surprised that people this young browse 4chan
>>42013755Yes. I’m not trying to live in the 18th century.
>>4201621719th fuck me
>>42013721why the fuck not
Fill your hands you son of bitch!
>>41997873Im looking into getting a single action in 357/38, itd be my furst wheel gat, what should i go with that wont break the bank but is still good?
>>42017494Uberti. Cimarron. Ruger.
>>42001060My Rodeo is still at the FFL. Damn computer-illiterate fudds.
>>42014607Do it.>>42013952Heard bitching about the arbor, on Richards-Mason .38 Navies, I don't put much stock in what I hear around here though, was just curious.
Not cowboy-era but 1929 is close enough right?
>>42014607If you're going to carry black powder, get a Remington 1858 revolver. You can carry all six chambers primed and capped, because there is a notch between each of the nipples where you can rest the hammer. If you do carry a colt instead, make sure that it is steel framed.
>>42018754Colts have six safety notches on the 1851 models. Early Walkers and Dragoons only have one notch.The advantage of the New Model Army would be the quick change cylinders since you don't have to pull a wedge
>>42018702I think USFA stuff is going to be a major collector's gun one day (beyond what they already go for). Mine has the most crisp, perfect trigger I've ever felt on a gun.
>>41998268can I get a quick rundown?
>>42019316I got mine for $850 dood, I think a hundred rounds through it at most. The return on that (I'll never sell though) will be insane
>>42017494My new vaquero was a pretty good purchase
>>42013697Cast my own bullets and shoot 45 Colt for < factory 9mm.
>>41998303>>42007100>>42007202Fuck, that's pretty. I love my 39A but the 39 is just pure sex.
>>42013755Can you show me where you learned that so I too can have the source?
>>42013697>>42013952Photos like these cure my erectile dysfunction.
