    This is what a 3 pin model looks like, just for reference. Note the pin at the rear of the trigger guard, the one at the trigger pivot and the one at the front of the trigger guard. Hopefully someone will know more about the specific date...

    The third model (1909-1941) in the Massey book clearly shows the three pin frame, which is the addition of the third pin at the front of the trigger guard. He says the easy way to tell if it is a first or second model is that the cylinder will spin...

    I'll have to remember to shoot it on paper next time I have it out. I can vouch that it is minute of soda can at close range. I broke the lifter on mine a while back and finally found one on eBay that was a match. I still need to stone the...

    I'm no expert, but when I was researching my Iver Johnson I found that the two pin models (the trigger and rear trigger guard) were supposed to be black powder only. The newer "smokeless" frames have three pins above the trigger. I've shot...

    I agree, I would like to see a Ken Water's Pet Loads sort of book from Brian Pearce. He does a lot of work for Loaddata.com, to add to their database. When I see load data from Brian, I always look at the citations to see if the information...

    I can't say it's better, but to follow alamogunr's lead with a plug of my own, the Cast Bullet Associations publication "The Fouling Shot" itself is worth the cost of membership in my opinion. Ed Harris is a monthly contributor, as well as other...

    I still enjoy reading Handloader and Rifle. Years ago the wife said no more stacks of magazines in the house. So now I just subscribe to the digital version. You get access to Rifle, Handloader, BP Cartridge and one other for about the same...

    And Lee already has all the tooling to make 7/8" precision dies and bullet sizers. I can't imagine it would be very difficult for them to make one. "Well served" is a relative thing. What is the delivery time after an order for a custom...

    I don't disagree with your premise of reloaders being a subset of shooters and casters being a subset of reloader's point. Very true. But you could make the same argument that Lee couldn't turn a profit making bullet molds by the same logic. ...
