New Project, Drum Id Photo Website
Posted 23 June 2004 - 08:11 AM
So, if you please, I'll start at the beginning. I'd like a good front and back photo of a colt C drum and a good close up photo of the cover and body plate. The same for a first model numbered L drum.
A 640X480 size would be about right.
If you can take digitals of this, please email me the pics (or post them here). If you email me the pics, please mention it here so I don't get 20 of them.
Thanks for participating. If the project goes along, I'll ask for 2nd and 3rd models etc...

Doug's book lists (prewar)
1921 (some retrostamped with 1928 instructions between the rivets)
Tracies book breaks that down a bit (in the early colt drums) to I think 4 models. The serial numbered one, retrostamped with 1928 instructions, the Colt NO (unnumbered) drum, and the forth without "NO" on the back.
Then the nearly identical worchester press drum and he lists four variations.
Does this sound daunting?
**Note, I've now have pictures of a 1921 serial numbered drum to add to the library (THANKS VERY MUCH). All donated photos will be anonymous.
