The last time I checked into that -

Find someplace here on Crap-Island & pay through the nose --

Send it out of state & pay through the nose + shipping --

To set up my own tanks -- I would have to make it a cottage industry to cover the costs

Bad enough I gots my buddy's haunting me about Cerakoteing as soon as I get to this - converting it into a curing cabinet

If you ever get one that's REALLY stuck..... this baby here will break it loose!
https://www.dixiegunworks.com/produc...85k28p7edqlqr4
And I'm not even sure it's possible to break one. Other places sell em too. You can price shop if you want, but this is where I got mine.

You could have gotten a better screwdriver set but it will work until you get a really tight screw and the bit twists like a wet noodle.

I got the same screw driver handle and bits just a different package. Love the driver. Bits were junk. Broke em. Got a big variety bit kit from harbor freight now. Haven't had a problem. Even on the toughest screws. Was a cheap kit and I didn't expect much but I was pleasantly surprised with the toughness of em.

I went with a set of the Grace USA screw drivers from Cabela's. There's about 3 in there out of 8 that work good on my Pietta & Uberti revolvers.

http://www.cabelas.com/product/Grace...Set/739938.uts

This Pietta / Uberti specific Grace USA set would be the way to go - next lifetime:

I almost bought a Grace set

Looking at what you linked -- in the slide menu I saw this --

http://www.gunbroker.com/item/657563777

Very - very tempting --

In fact I just sent the seller a question about shipping

Dam you !

No way would I pay that kind of money for a brass Pietta with bleached cylinders and a cheap holster.

The seller de-blued which in this case is something I would do anyway - I'm having great results with the Duracoat painting -- And I have no problem with a cheap -- even used holster -- hell I've bought brand new jeans that looked worn

Also -- look where I am -- for me -- this could be a bargain

There's usually better deals than that on there.

Here's a general search low to high of all Black Powder pistols:
http://www.gunbroker.com/Black-Powde...BI.aspx?Sort=4

Feature auctions start on page 1. The non-feature auctions start on page 2. Sellers a pay little more to have their auction listed as a feature auction = it will be at the beginning of any search.

This one is tempting to me:
http://www.gunbroker.com/item/659088013

And yes it is possible to get good deals on there. Here's a Pietta 1860 that sold for $138 on Tuesday:

^^ True -- but now I be like-en the brass frames -- maybe steel later --

I just bought it

Depending on which cylinder I'll keep - maybe -- I'll sell the crappier one

And the holster is for storage & maybe for the range -- its not as if I can wear it in my back yard mowing my weeds -- this aint America here

P/S -- Stop showing me stuff

I dont know what my fancy is -- but when its struck -- I know it

Could have bought a new brass frame for 179.99. The cylinders have gone up since I last priced them but you could have bought it all brand new for 269.98

Every nip wrench I ever touched was the same size -- the one I got for the 1861 is to thick -- I'm still learning here

"I'll find that shut off valve if it kills me"

Hammer side --



Grip side --



Just tight enough to balance the pistol --



Then sand it all back just enough so with the green felt glued in -- its snug --

And it fits the 1858 Remington also

""Shouldn't but I don't own one so what do I know.""

( how do you guys quote ? )
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's a thing -- when I was just about to get my anti seize compound for the 1861 nipples -- I noticed that the 1858 nips are slightly canted outwards -

1861 cylinder --



( blue lines -- theres more spacing for the wrench to slide onto the nipple )

The wrench slips over the whole nipple --

1858 cylinder --

This cutout is interfering -- not wide enough ?




( notice the canting on the left & right nipples )

Doing a little searching -- I found this slot needs a little opening with a 1/4" sanding drum

This guy mentions it for cap loading @ T/I -- 5:56

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=761LH1DhWGU

And I thought it was just me ?
