Skip,

John called me 2 or 3 weeks ago. He told me that he was thinking coming back to the AGC. For me, I did say “Sayonara”, Japanese for “forever farewell” to the leader ship of the AGC a year a go.

By the way, happy veteran day. I do miss you guys!

Thanks. Things are not the same with your departure.
No more history lesson from you.

SlowShooter I enjoyed your thread so much that when I came across a cartridge conversion for a Chassepot I immediately thought of this thread.

Here is a link (in French) to the cartridge conversion from H&C Collections:

There is a picture of the Chassepot conversion in a rifle here toward the bottom on the left side:

Thanks Blacksmith101 for the links about the metal cartridge reloading for the Chassepot without mod to the gun. I will get 1 kit for the sake of the collection. I really hate to wash black power residue off the Gras casing so I don't want to this for the Chassepot. Anyhow, I just wonder how they extract the brass out of the Chassepot chamber. They must use a cleaning rod.

My next project for the Chassepot this summer will be making the cartridge using some kind of fabric. I am having a deep thought about the original french made cartridges. why did they chose to use the fabric instead of paper? I think I know why, but I have to prove it, the real reason behind it. Gosh...I love re-living the history.
