Karl - can you produce a mould for the Enfield No2 mk 1* - the Spurless Tankie revolver?

The original milling on the .38 to make the spurless version isn't too difficult..... but it would mean in this instance, taking one of the castings, shaving off the thumb spur and reprofiling the hammer, then making a fresh pair of moulds.

The simpler way would be to use the existing castings, and the purchaser sawing off the surplus and filing/sanding the hammer down to the correct profile, assuming the resin is a constant colour right through.

I have a full size profile for the modified hammer somewhere on one of my discs, which I'd gladly provide to anyone who wanted to do the surgery.... once I find it again. ;)

All the best,
Paul

The colour is the same all the way through as it is the metal filler that provides the colour. Could you please send me the profile in case I get any casts where the hammer is not formed?

Oggy I think RAMC191 idea is your best bet. The mould making is the most tome consuming/expensive part.

Regards

Karl

Karl - in dental techniques I use wax to secure some elements before moulding...maybe You can just fill the part of hammer by wax and this way you can use the same mould for version with or with cut hammer??
