Interesting read.

BTW Prof Young, I was in Elk City just 43 years ago. Was in the “neighborhood” visiting my Great Aunt who lived in Kamiah. It’s beautiful country out there.

I have a 1970s "Legal Defender" Conversion. It was sold with easy reading between the lines for the purpose of assembling a .38 S&W (Yes, .38 S&W, much more available than .38 Colt in the pre-CAS era.) from a non-GCA 68 cap and ball in repressive jurisdictions.

It is a simplified Richards type without gate or ejector.
Accuracy was nil, even loading HBWC in an attempt to engage the Uberti 1851 rifling. So I caught my gunsmith in an experimental mood and he lined the barrel to .358".
