Hello to all and thanks for reading my post.

I have a few  gallery guns in 1890,1906 and 62a and would like to 

attain some original empty ammo boxes for display with my rifles .

According to my research both Winchester and Remington made them 

so would like some of each but would be happy with any you may wish to part with.

Thanks a lot

Hi Oliver (Wayne),

Western also made frangible gallery ammo “Kant Splash” as well as a few others.  Empty boxes can be found on eBay routinely but you may have to get creative with your search string since each manufacturer had their own proprietary name for the ammo such as “Spatter-less”, “Spatter-Pruf”, “Spatter-Proof”, etc.

Best Regards,

Oliver,

I don’t have my gallery stuff anymore but while you’re at it, I would look for some of those Gallery Short boxes that have ammo in them.  Plus the loading tubes, etc.

Of course, maybe you already have those.

Pictures of the ones I had:

Thanks very much Jolly Bill , I have had some loading tubes for some time now and recently bought 1 full box of Winchester Spatter Proof from on line auction and waiting for it to be shipped . Now just looking for some different boxes to brighten the  display . One of my 1890s also carries the counter attachment which is formed to fit the octagon barrel.

My pleasure Oliver.

The counter attachment for an octagon barrel 1890 has to be hard to find.

Years ago, I had an 1890 in .22 Short with a nickeled receiver.  It had a feature on the trigger guard loop for the tie down.  I don’t have that gun any more either.

Picture below of a tie down for a M62.

Then picture below that is me when I was in the Navy and at the shooting gallery on Coney Island using kive ammo.  If you hit the bullseye, it took your picture.  That would have been May or June of 1956.  (I posted the picture before – so nothing new.)

My enthusiastic looking buddy next to me is Mike Pore.  Mike was from Kalamazoo Michigan.  Anybody from the Kazoo area that might know Mike?

A tie down for a 62 would be great too . Does this hobby ever stop ?

1956 was some of the best times we will ever see . I was born in 45 so I can see you are older than I.

Thanks for the pictures .
