    I’ve been on a primivitive kick and have been smelting my own rounds for 45/70, 50/70, 12.7x44, and 58 cal Minnie. 45/70 is the only one I’ve been using smokeless powder in

  10. New to me 1873 springfield

    All cleaned up and re assembled. Ended up covering the case hardened receiver with a couple of balloons to protect it from the steam. After words I just lightly hit it with some copper wool and penetrating oil.Most all the rust converted back to blue accept a couple areas of ware. I Found a...

    The end of the barrel has some large spots were it must have got damp. The whole surface is dull with very fine specs. The gun is very dry so rather than just hitting it with steel wool and oil I wanted to covert and preserve the blueing as best I can. It’s in great shape and deserves some extra...
  16. New to me 1873 springfield

    I’m planning on plugging the bore and putting a balloon over the receiver.I think that should protect it from the steam enough. I’ve never had anything with intact true case coloring so I’m unsure of how durable it is and don’t want to go to town with steel wool on it. I’ve heard of soaking it...

    Recently picked this 1873 springfield up. Checking the serial number dates it to 1884 production. It looks correct as well as fairly untouched and unused. The bore is mirror bright and most the bluing and case hardening appears intact. I am going to try to conserve this in a manner like is shown...
