    “Columbus Depot” is a modern name, first used by Les Jensen in the 1980s, and continued in use by all of us afterwards. Jackets of this pattern may have originated from the Columbus Depot, or they...

    Hi Steve,

    Yes, this was typical on originals - not all had them, but many or most did. It was actually a small doughnut-shaped washer that was threaded so that it "locked" onto the screw threads...

    I have seen images of cavalrymen from the following units, wearing what appear to be "Columbus Depot" jackets - 5th Ky. Cav. (photographed at Camp Douglas, 1863), 6th Tenn. Cav. (date unk.),...

    If you'd like to try it yourself ... or just get an idea of what all can be involved (the costs in this article are now dated, and some folks also reshape the stock as well).

    Blair,

    I tried both. Started with a regular 575213 3-ringer (from a Lee or Lyman mold - I don't recall which now). 60 gns FFg. I didn't shoot this round much, because I had a custom Pritchett mold...

    I won't comment on the gun in question, because honestly, I don't remember it. And I don't have my Enfield data files here to check. But the early 1980s were a long time ago now ... ;)

    Indeed, that is one of the cards from the soldier's CSR, which is sometimes called the "carded service record," (because the records are on cards like this), but more commonly the "compiled service...

    The lock mounting screws themselves may have been screwed in too tight. I have seen this happen MANY times on repro...

    I agree with Curt's skepticism about the "sawed-off" Enfields. I don't recall Basil Duke or any other period Morgan source saying they sawed barrels off their long arms, although they do mention...

    Paul,

    Two parts that P-H did NOT copy from the original parts gauges were the hammer and the upper sling swivel. Therefore, these are not quite like those on original RSAF Enfields (the upper...
