Just wanted to show this.
Any info is welcome.
It certainly appears to be a heavy duty reloadable cartridge, utilizing a standard percussion cap. Cool!
there was a fantastic article by M. Leveau in the IAA about these not too long ago. Very uncommon item with, or without a headstamp .
A very cute item, even to someone like me who knows nothing about pinfire cartridges. Thanks!
This IS one neat pinfire! Thank you for posting René!
Very nice, not seen a stamped case one before, and yes they are reloadable pinfire.
Thanks for posting the pictures.
René, very nice, congratulations! It looks very similar to Somon’s patent of 1859 but I’m not sure if it a variation of the same or maybe something by other maker. Maybe you can send pictures to A. Leveau and ask for his opinion.
Thanks for the responses!
I am very happy with this one.
Aaron, whenever I find a second I let you know!
many regards rené
Do you have the original explanation to go with your patent, please?
