:thumbsup: I've always desired to have a 16ga. Those both look nice! (or should I say 'sweet' :lol: )I have a Stevens crack shot from 1913. It still shoots fine. Next would be my 16 gauge single shot gun 1918. Then my Ithaca featherlight 16 gauge. 1938. I have some others from the 40's and 50's. I don't have a pic of the crack shot anymore.

Nice! Thank you for sharing!Here are my 3 oldest .577 snider, .577/450 Martini Henry which i load for and shoot both. Also a Lewis and Thomes percussion shotgun(top gun 2nd pic). Not sure of the age and i haven't shot it yet. when i got it i disassembled it. cleaned it and it's fully functional. I have all the stuff to fire it but just haven't got around to it yet.
Custom reloads from CCC; Colorado Cartridge Co. They use cutdown 44 spl brass and of course BP.Interesting. Are you able to get ammunition for it or reload? Custer supposedly had a pair of .442 Webleys with him at his demise.
If he had them with him at the battle they probably ended up with one of the victors. I'd imagine if they ever resurfaced and were verifiable they would be pretty valuable at auction.Custom reloads from CCC; Colorado Cartridge Co. They use cutdown 44 spl brass and of course BP.
The Custer legend always pops up when Discussing RICs. His were must likely the No.1 Model , a few yrs later than the one here.
A few yrs ago Guns&Ammo (I believe) did an article and had a pic of him at home and what was vaguely identifiable as a RIC in a holster hanging in the background.
It's TRUE some Earl/Baron presented George and his brother w/a brace but a mystery as to why his has never reappeared!!
