Just got a beautiful set of 1860 Army's (THANKS to Old Smoker, who sent me a pair that is gorgeous), and need a presentation case for the pair. Who makes a case fitted for two 1860's with accessories? This is going to be presented and I want to make it a nice package.

I don't know anyone who simply offers a double revolver case that's fitted for accessories.
But here's an outfit to ask about making an economical custom double case to your specifications. You would supply outline drawings.

Another outfit will also make a custom presentation box:

Bill Shumate at Bill's Cases. http://billscases.com He makes cases that look like originals. Another source is Les Yoder at Brookfield Case, Inc. www.brookfieldcase.com

Here's a 2nd Gen case that came from the Colt Custom Shop.

Thanks guys... still no dice on what's needed though. Did learn some stuff though: What I want is described as "English Fitted" v/s "French Fitted", meaning that the cutouts are not perfectly cut into the case bottom, but that the case is simply partitioned with wood, with spots to put the pistols and also areas to put in accessories, but those areas are not "fitted" to the accessories.

The (beautiful) Colt Custom Shop case above is what is described as French Fitted. Not exactly what I need, albeit lovely.



Someone must make these... I see pistols being sold in them now and then.

Perfect, thanks. I somehow missed them on his site, I'll go poke further. Thanks much!


<edit>: Did so, and have contacted him. Excellent stuff. Thanks even more!
