Thanks for the info. I am on the lookout for a decapping pin especially for the 38 WCF. 

I may have to make one. 

I need to use the mould to see what the actual diamiter is. Would really like to use them.

There are some reproductions on Ebay pretty regular, and infrequently a original pin shows up.

I have several Model 1880 tools that support my Model 1876 rifle collection.  I have the Yearout reloading tool book and these descriptions are based on his work.

1.  Model 1880 first issue (Fourth reloading tool) in .45-75 with just patent and caliber markings.  No makers marks.45-75-1880-tool-type-1-01.jpgImage Enlarger45-75-1880-tool-type-1-02.jpgImage Enlarger45-75-1880-tool-type-1-03.jpgImage Enlarger

2.  Model 1880 second issue (Fifth reloading tool) in .40-60 WCF, with patent, caliber markings and makers marks.  Came with what I believe to be an original Barlow patent decapping pin that is marked 40-60W.40-60-1880-tool-type-2-01.JPGImage Enlarger40-60-1880-tool-type-2-02.JPGImage Enlarger40-60-1880-tool-type-2-03.JPGImage Enlarger

3. Model 1880 fourth issue (Seventh reloading tool) in .45-75, with patent, caliber markings and makers marks.  It has the Berdan chisel. Came with what I believe to be an original decapping pin that is marked 45 which does not have the Barlow patent case forming collar.45-75-1880-tool-type-4-01.jpgImage Enlarger45-75-1880-tool-type-4-02.jpgImage Enlarger45-75-1880-tool-type-4-03.jpgImage Enlarger

Bill,

Thanks for the info.

On your #1 comment, your tool was likely made 1880-1882 due to the patent address marking, I believe in 1883 the 3-Line Address was added to the tools. Shame it is missing the berdan chisel, otherwise seems to be a very nice spoon-handled tool.

On your #2 comment, your 40-60wcf 2nd variation is fairly nice, I have no Idea whose initials are marked on the bottom handle, but have seen similarly done initials on other tools. The 2nd variation is believed to have been made from 1884-1896. I believe yours is later production tool, as the patent address markings is the 2nd type I've found for the 1880 Tool, but I have yet to narrow down a range for it and speculate at least post-1890. 

On your #3 comment, 45-75 4th variation is nice as well, and also has the later type patent address marking. I believe your are correct that the de-capping pin is an original Winchester pin, but it is the earlier type pin, pre-1882 patent and would be more suited for your 45-75 Spoon Handle 1st Type Tool. 

Again Thank You for contributing to my survey.

Sincerely,

Maverick

P.S. You don't happen to have any other Winchester Reloading Tools?

Came with what I believe to be an original decapping pin that is marked 45W which does have the Barlow patent case forming collar.  One would presume that the decapping pin is post 1882.

2.  Model 1878 fourth model iron mould in .45-75 with caliber markings and makers marks.  Perfect chamber.

Bill,

 

Your 4th Type 1880 Tool in 45-60 has the earlier type patent date markings. The de-capping pin appears correct and is the post-1882 type.

On your 4th Type Mold in 45-75, Does the mold blocks have the alignment pin?

Do you mind also sending me pics to my email at bradydh123@hotmail.com?

Sincerely,

Maverick
