Here is a Nice Non-Dug Wilmot Patent Musket Tompion !
These contain an expanding rubber plug, sometimes covered in wool,
a serrated brass top, and brass parts. Turning the top knob expanded
the rubber to tightly fit the muzzle of either an M1855 or M1861
Springfield. Top brass plate is stamped, " Patented November
24th, 1863." Pictured in Volume I, Gun Tools Their History
and Identification, by Shaffer, Rutledge, & Dorsey, p. 331.
Much more rare than a standard Springfield or Enfield

Nice .44 Caliber Boot Pistol Mold - w/Integral Sprue Cutter and Hammer Tip
Here's a Fine Condition Iron Bullet Mold for .44 Caliber Ball !
All the metal is in good shape with only minor surface rusting
here and there. Square nut holds the two halves together and an
integral sprue cutter is between the handles. End of one arm has
a tapered square tool of some sort, and some folks say it is a
wrench to insert in a screw barrel pistol for removing the barrel.
End of the other arm is very pointed and may also serve as some
sort of tool. Cavity mics out right at .440 and total length is
just 3.5 inches. Very Nice .44 Caliber Bullet Mold for your
collection or Display with a Firearm !

Excellent Acrylic Revolver Stand
Finally, got more of those Acrylic Revolver Display Stands, the same type I usually use when photographing revolvers for sale. These measure 4.5 inches long, almost 3 inches wide, and 4.25 inches tall, with a high and a low cutout on each end. They are made of quarter inch thick acrylic, and are sturdy yet lightweight. They will take almost anything from a small boot or pocket pistol, to a Colt Army. A Nice Way to Display that Civil War Pistol !
[ Geez,.... Wholesale price went up AGAIN, so my price is
slightly higher than before.] SOLD OUT
Nice Civil War Period Brass Two Cavity Pistol Bullet Mold
Here is an Excellent Two-Cavity 31/32 Brass Bullet Mold !
All the brass exhibits a nice golden brown patina, with some file
finish marks here and there, along with the usual use dings. No
maker, caliber or bore marks anywhere on the mold that I can
see. Makes a round ball, and a conical bullet, and both cavities
mic out around .320 to .325 . Both round ball cavities nearest
the handles, show a lot of old green verdigris which could be
removed if desired, but looks good as is. Mold still opens and
closes freely and precisely, and I imagine you could cast some
balls if you tried. It measures 5.25 inches long, and about 1.25
inches wide with the handles closed. A Nice Unusual Old
Brass Bullet Mold, that dates to the Civil War !
Very Fine Rifle Powder Flask by G. & J.W. Hawksley, Sheffield, England
Here is a Beautiful Violin Shaped G & J.W. Hawksley
Sheffield, Powder Flask for Rifle ! It’s in wonderful fully
functional condition, with a nice mellow patina on the
brass or copper body. The spring is still good in the lever,
and the 3-position spout still fully adjustable. The seams
are still tight, and it appears there were no provisions for
carry attachments on this one. Stamped on top of the
charger assembly is, “ G. & J. W. Hawksley Sheffield.”
The Hawksleys manufactured flasks, shot pouches, dram
bottles, cap primers, and cartridge implements, from the
1840s-1890s. Flask measures 7.75 inches long to tip of
spout, and about 3.5 inches across at the widest point of
the body. Just a Superbly Preserved & Beautiful Flask!
Gun Tools Volume 2 - Another Excellent Reference
This is just more good stuff, and mostly all different from Vol. I . In this volume I found that strange flat-sided wiper I dug, and discovered it was a European pattern . Like Volume I, this one is also almost 400 pages, with another 600 photos. Both of these Volumes cover US, Foreign, and Confederate, from "the era of the Wheellock to the Warsaw Pact," which includes scads of Civil War period tools. Ball Screws, Wipers, Mainspring vices, combination tools, jags, wrenches, tompions, brushes, and a whole lot more. SOLD OUT
