    Jim, I'm not exactly sure if this is what you mean, but hopefully this picture helps.

    Thank you very much.
    Actualy, if you put the lines on the ruler paralell with the lines in the checkering it would give an actual accurate count.It don't matter which direction or where you start.
    ( I appologize Pantherage, I should have been more specific in my first request )
    Kind of a bummer tho to see that it is pressed and not cut.
    Wouldn't take much to gently go over that with a cutter and really make it stand up ;)

    Wow Steve, now that you pointed that out. When i go back and look, i can see them differently than the first time. I can look away, and look back and see it change. :confused:
    One o' the tropical protrusions i spose lol
    They may look better than pressed, close, but no cigar.
    Bottom line tho.
    They still aint cut.
    I spose i'm an old school 'smith and a purist. I wanna see 'em hand cut with hand tools.
    THAT is a craft.
    Any goober can set up a machine with enough pictures in the directions book.
    I never even cared for the Dembart.( sort o' like a Dremel made for checkering)
    I allways layed out by hand and hand cut every line. ;)

    Thruth is tho, no gun, or stock manufacturer can afford to hand cut any checkering. They must be able to charge high prices to thier customers to do so.
    Here's a little known fact.
    Them that do offer hand cut, have women doing most of thier checkering.
    More patience and no 'machoism'. :)

    I haven't felt those Pietta laser-cut grips in person but I'm sure that Pantheragem can tell us how sharp the checkering feels and how happy he is with them.
    I have a Browning trap gun and the checkering on the forestock is at times if I dare say, just a wee bit too sharp! :)

    My Pedersoli 1858 and a nitro cylinder made by Allan Westlake. The nitro cylinder loads using shotgun primers, Herco powder and semi wad cutters. It is the nearest thing to a modern revolver we are allowed in the uk. :)

    Some more info about it:

    http://westlakeengineering.com/4640/4694.html


    The lower 1858 is a limited edition engraved one by ASM called The Officer. :)

    Why do you Guys post these most excellent photos?
    I was perfectly happy with my meager collection of 58s. Now I feel exceedingly un-settled, deprived, an in need of additional 58s. ;)

    Bob Rob,

    Thanks for posting that modified Remington. Some guys have been asking about the possibility of making a cylinder to use 209 primers and there it is.

    Nice "officer's Model", too.

    Okay, I wanna join in on the fun as well. I have my Pietta 1858 shortie from Cabelas' sale days a while back. I have rolled ball and conicals through it finding conicals do a better job. I made up a holster and belt set to drag it around in.

    That is my Arkansas Toothpick as a companion blade. I also have made up a powder flask carrier to add to the belt set.

    With the bullet pouch (250 bullet capacity), powder flask carrier, and a couple of tins of percussion caps I am good to go for an afternoon's worth of smoke generation.;)

    Thanks Jim,

    I found the patterns for all of it on the Tandy Leather webpages under the "Percussion Pistol Pattern Pack" title. They give you holster patterns that can be adapted to fit Colts or Remingtons or other types in two sizes of barrel and three designs ranging in a completely covered flap holster for the Dragoons and Colt Army style, a Slim Jim type and the more open Quick draw type I made. They also give you the ball or bullet pouch,

    EmBPHolsters2_043.jpg

    As well as the powder flask carrier in two sizes, the small size fits the Remington Flask with the Hunting Dog on it, the large size fits the Colt Revolver Flask.

    EmPFH2_002.jpg

    The generic drop loop holster belt is also included with either a billet type buckle arrangement or a tapered type set up. I will admit to being influenced by Clint Eastwoods' movie "Pale Rider" when I made this set up to carry my Remington and my Uberti Colt .45 SAA Clone.:D

    Dang Jay.
    That right there is some beautiful work !!
    I went to Tandy's sight but found nothing under Percusion Pistol Pattern Pack.
    I did however find a book i'll be gittin called "Law Dog Holster Pattern Pack".
    Has patterns for every C&B pistol there is. Even every type of wheel gun used for CASS
    As for the pattersn for the flasks 'nat. I can make those up myself. I've got plenty experience makin ball bags, possibles bags and slings for front loaders from deer hide. I like the ball pouch you made tho.Gotta be a sight better than carryin a ball bag.
    Oh great. Now ya got me goin into Tandy and that can be a costly endevour for me. Thier store is just 5 minutes form my house. lol
    Thanx so much for the info and inspiration Jay. I truely 'preciate it.

    Hi Jim,

    If you go to the Tandy Leather Site:

    http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/

    Then look at the headers and click on the one that says "Leathercraft Library", it will take you to another web site that has all their downloadable stuff. If you want to purchase something you will need either a Pay Pal Account or a credit card and have to register. The are translating a lot of their old books and pattern packs into PDF files that you can purchase and download right there.

    The "Percussion Pistol Pattern Pack" is selling for $9.95. It is a PDF File that you can download and print out on your home printer. The actual patterns are on large shhets, to make them usable they have sliced them up into printable pages that you can tape back together to form the original sized sheets.

    I will admit that I have bought up a bunch of their stuff and am having entirely too much fun making it up.;)
