    WW2 Remington Rand

    My Father had purchased this late WW2 production Remington Rand Model 1911A1 in the 1950's, I believe it is
    original and in excellent condition.

    (I shot Expert with the Model 1911A1 in the service)

        I do like to shoot some of my S&W revolvers too. Photo shows an early "four screw" K-38 with the 8 3/8 inch barrel in
        38 Special that was converted to single action, has custom grips. The other is the Model 25 in 45 Colt caliber.

        Also like to convert the Italian 1851 and 1861 percussion revolvers to use cartridges - kind like the way gunsmiths did
        them in the post Civil War era. I like to use incomplete or well used examples for conversions

          Ahhhh, I realize that todays steel is worlds better that 150 years ago but are you still using black powder in the metallic case conversions? or puff loads with smokeless?‚Äč

            The two conversions that I built (one in 2001 and the other in 2012) use the Legal Defender 38 S&W cylinders and recoil plates, no problem with
            factory 38 S&W cartridges. I handload with a deeper hollow base bullet due to the larger bore size, others use the heeled bullet design or install
            a .357 barrel liner. I had to make the ejector housings and loading gates and use the thin SA Colt 1873 mainsprings. The internal parts were for
            the most part replaced. Test target with new load

              Here is as close as I can get to an original right now,I drew this before arthritis and nerve damage took a lot of my hand function away.
