Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

1858 Remington Carbine Revolver

#1 Post by echo1 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 1:21 pm

Hi Fellas,

The posts keep counting,

Earlier this year, my LGS came up on some BP stuff that had been neglected. One item, a .45 revolver carbine, had a frozen cylinder. Because of it's condition, he let it go for dirt. Douched with Kroil to soak overnight, freed it right up. Looks spanky now. I've got everything but propellant and primers, GTG. PAX

That sounds neat. Please post up some pix of it when you get a chance.

after having been frozen, make sure the timing/indexing is dead on, when your arm is past the front of the cylinder, an shaved ball is most unpleasant. :/

Stuff; Some of it is Italian, some of it shoots.

It was stuck from sitting/neglect/poor environment and didn't appear to have been shot much, if al all. After freeing it up, it seem to cycle fine. I did some home work while it was soaking. Got the heads up on chain fires and not to dry fire. It's actually a very good looking piece and it just happened to fit an old leather scabbard I had. PAX
