    sailcaptain replied to a thread .457 airgun slugs, HP in AirGuns
    What is the maximum distance (with accuracy) all of you have seen with the Texan .457? I have one that was given to me a while back when a family member wanted it out of her house. It just looked to ominous to her. It needs some work, as when I...

    I went to find my drill bit collar, but of course, it’s hiding right now. But if get something like this set and match the size to both end stems diameter. You could add a solid metal piece in between and eliminate the rubber connection. It still...

    Try using a drill bit extension coupling. It allows you to extend the length of a drill bit to drill a deeper hole. It’s a collar about 2 inches long with 2 set screws on each end. Just a quick thought.

    NYFirefighter357, The best hour of TV I’ve seen in a long time. And the first time I’ve ever heard of the “candle holder” for a bayonet. So all the way around I highly recommend everyone to enjoy this video. Just for the step by step...

    I asked for a better photo of the same angle you and DJ are showing. I'm not driving back to Connecticut today. So we can get a better point of reference. Yours with the rounded bridge is like DJ's and very unlike my friends. So here is a...

    DJ, Your right, the bridge on the one you have has a much more of a dome shape. Where, his is more square, squatter and not so tall. Iíve never talked with my friend as much as I have over the last few days. Iím sending your pictures...

    Thank you, I'll pass both links on and see where it goes. I'm thinking we'll be going to a few gun shows also as they come up.

    NYFirefighter357, thank you for the link. We searched through and believe it matches up to the M1855 Socket Bayonet. We are basing this on the US Stamp. This one has the same S style of lettering and no (.) after each letter. The others have a...

    Sorry for the dark photo. The measurement is 0.7945 inches. We did contact the organizations suggested and are awaiting to hear back. Once identified he will start searching for a rifle. Not sure if he will cast any rounds, but who knows, he may...

    A new clue revealed itself this morning. We thought it was rust but it turned out to be just crusted grime. A little light cleaning and a “US” stamp appeared on the blade. There are no other markings anywhere else we can find. Hopefully this...

    I’m in Rhode Island. He’s in Connecticut. But there is the Kentish Guard here locally we could check with. Great suggestion. Thanks. Once identified the real work begins for him. Finding a rifle. But the searching is 99% of the fun.

    I agree, it is a nice piece of history. It came out of nowhere two nights ago. He said he’s had it in the back of a closet for years. The screw and mount are fully functional like the day it was made. I didn’t know it may be the side mount style...

    I was at a friends house and he pulled out a bayonet he said he's had for years. Passed down from his father. I never knew he even had an interest in this sort of weaponry. He asked me if I knew what rifle this would be from. He wants to match...
