    I have read your postings on needle firearms and find them extremely interesting. I have recently purchased a Chassepot in extremely fine condition and would like to fire it. However, I do not want to use the original needle and obturator for obvious reasons. Can you provide me a good source for reproduction needles? I understand from several forum posts that obturators can be made from plumbing rubber gaskets.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Guy and Leonard,

    Can you advise the 'parent' cases you've been using for your Werder ammunition? I'm about to commence a project to get a Gendarmerie carbine (11.5 x 35R) shooting again and am interested in any tips you might have.

    I see. I wonder then, if you would sell me one of your copies?
    Thank you,

    Dear Sirs,

    You recently posted a topic on Gunboards on the Podewils Lindner 58/67 rifle which I read with relish since I have one on the way in shooting condition.  I would like to enquire about the original bullet dimensions with the aim of getting a mould cut.

     If all goes well I may also soon aquire a carcano '67 to go with my Chassepot and Dreyse 1862 (none Beck), it seems we follow parallel paths although I do it as a personal challenge rather than for research.

    I noticed it has a proof mark on the barrel at the left side of the receiver. Please post a better picture of it and we may be able to help. On a U. S. rifle, there will be a letter stamped there.

    I have a dreyse m68 rifle that I am trying to load for. I would like to load the patrone m/72 cartridge. Is it possible you have a blue print of the bullet used?
    Old West Bullet Moulds has a bullet available for the patrone m/55 but I would like to have him make a mold for the m/72 so I can take advantage of the lighter bullet.
    Any suggestions on the construction of the sabot would be greatly appreciated
