Adjustable powder measures
« on: February 13, 2018, 03:00:16 AM »
Made a couple of these on a whim a couple of years ago. I've seen brass originals but never with any engraving. But I like wriggle work and came up with these. I really didn't think they would be a wanted item but it turns out quite a few have liked them too. Can't keep one in the shop these days.

I can see why they don't stay around long.  Mighty fine looking work.  God Bless,  Marc

 "I really didn't think they would be a wanted item" maybe not by a Dr., Lawyer, or car salesman but any guy that shoots a ML would. ( and that would include Drs., Lawyers and car salesmen if the shoot).
 Nice work.

Very nice work BB.  Love the numbering!   Hasn't got that "Drag you back into the 20th/21st Century " look!

Lovely work!

The mass produced ones don't have that kind of quality; that's why they sell & sail.

That sure beats the factory ones by a mile! Do you sell at any events?

Some times I have one at the CLA show in August. Sorry I don't have any on hand, there are two in the works right now but they are orders.
