Bill,We talked in August at Powder Creek about a shotgun gunsmith and you gave me a name. That afternoon I broke my leg and have forgotten (who knew the leg and brain are connected?) the guy's name. Can you tell me again - and maybe how to get in touch with him? Tnx
Not sure you remember me. We met when Joe Rosa went to Mendota for the unveiling of the Wild Bill Statue. My Great Grandfather, Harrison Hickok, was 2nd Cousin to Wild Bill. My Dad was told Harrison and James went to Kansas together. Harrison stayed there, James didn't like Kansas, so moved on. Hope to see you again someday. I do keep in touch daily with our Cousin Cynthia. Take care!
being tardy with this reply but have been on the road and only recently
returned home. The '51 Navies I used on The Outdoor Channel's "Cowboys"
program are 2nd generation Colt Navies that have some minor engraving, round
trigger guards and Ivory grips. The
actions have been tuned by Bob Munden. If
you wish to purchase a pair of Hickok style '51 Navies I recommend you contact
Chris Ballard at Cimarron Firearms. Once upon a time Cimarron had several part
of '51 Navies with Uberti factory laser engraving and faux ivory grips that
were very affordable. If no longer available Chris will special order a pair
with Hickok pattern hand engraving, real or "True Ivory" one piece grips. I recommend you replace the factory nipples
with Treso nipples and have Bob Munden tune them up.
Thanks, Tame Bill. I shall indeed contact your references in obtaining such fine fashions. By the way, are your pistols replicas of Mr. Hickock's; if so, would you mind informing me where they can be purchased? I've seen several non-firing replicas and others wherein the cylinders were gold plated, but nothing resembling Hickock's precisely. Thanks for taking your time to respond. I've only recently become interested in CAS and my wife is "considering" participation. We have done pre-1840 and Colonial Reenactments since 1982 and we're looking for a change in pace.
Katherine J. Bryant did the costuming for Mr. Carradine as the
character of Wild Bill on the HBO show
Deadwood. Much of my period correct attire comes from River Junction Trading
Company and Quartermaster Shop. My low
crowned/large brim hats are no longer available and I am looking for new source
to make a couple extras. My shooting footwear is made by Buffalo Runner and the
dress boots are custom made by Champion Attitude Boots.
Your "Hickock" regalia is absolutely incredible. Would you inform me where you get such attire? Additionally, do you know where Keith Carradine obtained his "Hickock" outifit from the HBO "Deadwood"??
Great site! Enjoyed the action photos!
