    Wow, so sorry that you are going through this turmoil. Those employees must be desensitized that how much theirs guns cost the consumers. Would they personally put up with such ambivalence? I concur with with others, my older S&Wís shoot great....

    Good question, it's percussion. As for shooting it, I may. Depending on time available. The first gun I ever bought was a Colt Navy replica. I have a beautiful 45 call. I line that I don't shoot as it's too hard to clean. And I found a very...

    Way back in 1978, when I first saw the Lyman Great Plains rifles I knew I wanted /needed one. But they were outside my budget. Fast forward 40 years and I stopped by the local marina and Gun store to talk to one of guys there. Looking at the gun...

    Old thread but good. I found an Iver Johnson 410 in dad's stuff 2 years ago that he picked up at some auction somewhere. It's far from perfect and I have always been wondering about it. After reading this I will keep it, just because. Ken

    They also made just the press the OP is asking about. A half size C press for handguns only, and maybe 222 but nothing larger. It was cast iron with an aluminum model in the works when they went out of business. PRC 3. Ken

    Rking22, there was a post that you are asking about. Unfortunately the gentleman wanted to sell his slugs in a manner that violates forum rules. I had to shut it down, sorry. You may be able to contact him via pm to see if he still has any.

    DdB, that is interesting, I have never seen anything but aluminum. Cast iron would be a much stronger choice. It looks like the aluminum would spread and break the lips under sustained heavy use. Ken

    Good, I am glad you got it. Your boss man got greedy with me and I had to pass. It's an interesting design and appealing. Looks to me to plenty strong enough for 38's. How many shell holders do you have? Echo and Herter's can be used if needed. ...

    BBB, they do but they are not for everyone. My issue with adaptors is they shorten ram travel so the ram cannot reach top dead center. Functionality is OK, but it gives an odd feel to have the ram stop shert of where you know it should.
