    To me, that is a safe queen! That is a rare edition that is not seen pretty much ever. I would like to know if it has a date code and any manufacturer markings.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Very cool I have always thought in retirement I would have time to do something so beautiful but I am a long ways off both in retiring and in the skills to build something like that.

    That's not fair. You make something so nice and tease us with a single picture. Excellent work. Tell us more.

    If I was in the Cival war that would be my preferred Calvary weapon, backed up by a Dragoon in a saddle holster.

    As gorgeous as the copy is, I'd have to opt for a Remington 1858 carbine, and four spare cylinders...,

    Followed with a pair of howdah's...,

    The above are breechloaded and not actual "howdah" pistols..., but y'all get the idea ;)

    Which one? Army, Navy, or Cavalry Model?

    DGW seems to be just about the only retailer that has any BP revolvers in stock.

    Regards,

    If you are not building the case itself as well, Hampel's Wood Products made a custom one for me. I sent him a picture of a cased LeMat that I found on the internet and traced the outlines of the revolver and all of the accessories I wanted spaces for in the box. It was reasonable for custom work and I have always been happy with their work:

    Cav. model...transitional model, oct. bbl.
    the DGW walnut case .$225 fits it inside, when you remove the innards?
    I intend to refit the whole case, but the gun and the accessories will fit this case.
    The Pietta DGW Lemat is one of the finest I have ever see for quality and bank vault tightness.
    I have to find an way to lighten the spring though...This will be a safe queen so whatever works..
    very happy, but expensive..had to sell some other stuff to get the $1250, but it's a nice piece.
    I was going to send it to Lockwood to defarb, but I don't think I will. too nice go do that...

    OK, the DGW Lemat came, as I said one Heck of a gun..
    no defarb here...too nice
    NOW. how do you lighten the main spring? the hammer pull is tough.
    safe queen, so not to worry about it being too soft.
    tks..Ken
