    Sweet! I’m going to guess the only ones of those that got sold were to armories Since mostly the government would Be paying for them for military use. Regardless, it’s not an item you see every day. Thanks for sharing.

    The first ones were only made for the big military calibers. They were always a special order item, made when the order was received. Sometime after the second version was introduced they were available in any caliber Ideal had cherries for.
    They were last cataloged in 1955.

    I need to take and post a few pics!
    Looking for Ideal molds 419181 (44 Evans Long) and 375167 (38-72)
    "Joined Dates" are deceiving if you factor-in "lurk" dates.
