Would anyone know what the width of the strap was for a model 1894 DOM 1902.

Are you asking about a sling strap?

What kind of buckle is used?  I’ve made 2 of them using a small brass harness buckle called a Conway:  https://www.buckleguy.com/b7009-1-antique-brass-conway-prong-buckle-solid-brass-ll/

Mine weren’t meant to be “replicas,” merely functional for toting the gun around.

One on the right is in outstanding cond.–looks like it could be used safely today.  All others I’ve seen looked like the dark one, or worse.  Canvas slings, belts, etc., are much longer-lasting than leather.

Rodger,

My secret is the photo editing program that I have installed on my computer. If you do not have a photo editing program on your PC, you might explore doing that. Have one of your children (or grandkids) help you out. I suspect that you may have (an unknown to you) program already installed on your PC. I could assist you… but only if you make the trip out to Cody with your PC.

If he’s using Windows, he does–the Paint program I previously described.  It serves the purpose, but has too many unnecessary functions & adjustments, like changing color, etc.  What is a simpler program that can be downloaded for free?

I use Fotosizer for batch resizing and/or renaming photos.

It is free and works great!

Just tried downloading it, & it didn’t “take.”  Indicated it was downloading, but after waiting more time than it should have taken without receiving a “finished” or other message, I tried to find it on my list of programs, & it was not there.  May try it again later, but I don’t do this enough to justify much more trouble.  If the new “system” had not reduced the size of photos it would accept, resizing might not be necessary.

Hi Clarence,

Our company uses Fotosizer world-wide and it is a solid platform.  If you had a problem initially it is well worth a second attempt.

You simply drag your photos to be resized to the box, select the size and voila, done.

If you continue to have an issue I can have my (much younger) IT guru guide you through the process.

Jeff,  I have no doubt about its efficacy, but for some inexplicable reason my computer seemed to be “resisting” the download; I’ll try again when perhaps it’s in a more congenial mood.  But as I said, in the rare situations when I might have a good reason to resize, it can be done with the ancient, if somewhat cumbersome, Paint program.

Fotosizer is infinitely better than Paint when to comes to resizing batch photos (or batch anything for that matter).

It was no problem on my end for some reason, I downloaded it and sent you the zipped file.  Your anti-virus may “resist” it since it is zipped.  Your choice on what you do next…..understand if you are cautious, I would be also if I didn’t already use it.
