Hey guys,

I am trying to tell the difference in appearance between the 1891 tool in 45 GOV – 405 and 45 GOV – 500. I am assuming the caliber stamp on the top must be different. Can anyone help me out by posting a picture of both so I know what to look for?

When I get home this evening I can upload some pics, at my work computer right now, but that said they are easy enough to tell apart.

The 1891 Tool in .405 grains is marked “45 GOV.” and the 1891 Tool in .500 grains is marked “45 GOV. 500 GRS”.

Sincerely,

Maverick

Maverick, thank you for your response. That is kind of what I thought but it I have never seen a 45 GOV. 500 GRS so it is nice to get confirmation. I appreciate your time.

Regards,

Glenn

Dear Glenn,

Here is the standard marked “.45 Gov.”

Also I forgot they marked some “.45-70 F.P.”

F.P. meaning Flat Point, for use in the Model 86 Rifle.

And unfortunately I can’t locate my photo of the “45 Gov. 500 GRS”

I do have one, but I’ll have to dig it out of my case and snap a picture of it.

That said here is a picture of the bullet mold that goes with it.

When I get a free minute I’ll post a picture of the “45Gov500Grs” 1891 Tool. The 500 GRS is below the .45Gov.

Sincerely,

Maverick
