The purchaser of this mold is acquiring a mold both published in Robin Rapley's book as well as having provenance from the late Senator Charles Ford Collection. The book is highly recommended and an invaluable reference such that all my Colt listings bar none reference it for identification. You could not find a better gift for a Colt enthusiast then a mold straight out of his book, and/or with provenance from the late Senator Charles Ford.
Offered is an extremely rare Colt bullet mold - originally manufactured to a. 36 caliber Navy bullet mold and subsequently factory converted to the.41 caliber Colt Thunderer Model 1877 Double Action (DA) revolver. A hook extension tool used to prime reloads is riveted to the inside of one of the legs. The sprue cutter is marked'Colt's Patent'. These molds are extremely rare (Rapley 5 out of 5 rarity) and are highly sought after accoutrements. Pictures of the individual item listed are of exactly what you'll receive.
