    .45 Colts brass mould

    I am wondering if anyone can tell me anything about this mould in regards to maker and rarity. It's a solid brass mould stamped .45 colts but I can find no other markings.

    The earliest Winchester moulds were made of brass, with no company markings. According to Chamberlain, there should be a very small number (perhaps a serial number) stamped on it somewhere.

    That looks like a pristine specimen, wow!

    Thanks for the info! I have a few more in different calibers. Would these be Winchester moulds as well?

    The one on the right certainly looks like another Winchester. The one on the left, I dunno. The handle shapes, hinge and sprue cutter look maybe like the designs some of the smaller gunsmithing shops out West made for their customers, but I don't know whether they made them of brass.

    You might ask the guys at the Antique Reloading Tool Collectors' web site about the dual cavity mould.
