    Re: Post Your Weapons - Damascus Steel Barrel

    I just bought his on ebay for 19.99 plus 17 shipping. I should get it by tomorrow. It was shipped the 30th. Is there a place I can get a unfinished stock? I want to make it a wall hanger if I get a stock. Or I may sell it. It has a 30 inch barrel 7/8 one end 7/8 other end. from Syracuse NY. How can I find out how old it is and who made it? Any help is appreciated.

    No idea what it is? It's still going to be missing the action, even if you find a stock, so it will have a big empty part in the middle... What markings are on it?

    I paid for it and it has been shipped, it should be here tomorrow. The seller said it has Syracuse NY on it. I hope I can get my money back. LOL

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    Some sort of hammerless side-by-side double 12 or 16. Damascus barrels. NEVER try to shoot it. Sure death.

    Is Turner Kirkland's Dixie Gun Works still in business ? They had skrillions of parts and stocks..........Tennessee, I think......used to get lots of black powder stuff and parts from them........

    Hopefully some marks on the breech face or under the forestock (splinter forearm style) Hmmmmmm...7/8" (bore ???).....10 ga.???

    Again, NEVER try to shoot a Damascus (twisted steel) barrel......disaster, absolutely guaranteed. If the pictures are even close in detail, the amount of wear and deterioration says the barrels would make a good tomato stake. Late 1800's - early 1900's judging by the lock.

    I'd always heard about how dangerous Damascus barrels were but a buddy of mine hunted for years with a Damascus barreled 12 ga. and used nothing but high base shells. It sure was a pretty gun.

    Damascus is fine. That's like saying if you drive on firestones, its sure death. For some people, yea, it was. But SURE? No, not by a million. If you inspect the weapon and determine that it is safe, shoot it. If you find a crack or warpage or bulging or any of a myriad other issues that could cause it to be unsafe, don't shoot it. Simple.

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    I'm tired of Damascus knives as I think it's been way overdone, and most are pretty tacky, but every now an then one comes along that I really like. This one, which rests in my closet, is a true work of art. It was made by Joe Caswell, who also made the steel.









    This is a Celtic knife with hilt form reminiscent of the migration period, though it could also be described as "Viking". It features the typical Celtic/Viking sword construction (three twisted/counter twisted Damascus billets with a separate laminated edge continuing around the tip). Alloys used include 1095, 1075, 15N20 and W2. The blade is 9 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide at the guard.

    Hilt is antique wrought iron and sterling silver. The handle is stabilized juniper.

    The sheath is fleece lined, leather covered maple with sterling silver mounts.

    It's a fine knife that you have there. So, it's actually designed after a real historical piece, as opposed to being fake Celtic?

    That's my understanding from Joe, although I believe he based it on several knives as opposed to any single blade.

    I sdid shoot a double barrel 10 gauge when I was 14 years old. It was a friends dads gun I shot only once in 1972, it had a damascus barrel. I would not shoot another one though. Are there any Microtech knife colectors here?

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    All these CSI shows do matching of bullets to guns by the barrel marks.

    Would not be possible to sand/lightly hone the barrel of a gun so as to change that distinctive fingerprint that bullets have ?
    It really does seem too easy.
    The barrel of the firearm scores the bullet. So how hard could it be to lightly sand/hone the barrel or even score it so as to create a different pattern on a bullet the next time it is fired ?
    The next best new one they talk about is firing pins. How they leave a fingerprint too. Im guessing that firing pins could be a dime a dozen ??????

    But seriously ?
    How difficult would it be to change the pattern on the barrel of any gun ?

    Re: Post Your Weapons

    I'm no forensics expert, but I do have some understanding of firearms. It seems to me the rifling (or grooves) inside the barrel and the crown of the barrel are what would leave those signature marks on a bullet. Those marks are apparently what seem to be what links a firearm to a bullet.

    If you file or sand on either the rifling inside the barrel or crown you'd basically ruin your firearm.
