CLINT EASTWOOD HANGS ‘EM HIGH
The American Thinker ^ | September 8, 2012 | J.T. Hatter

Paint Your Wagon! Clint Eastwood just dropped another nuke on Obama. In the latest issue of The Carmel Pine Cone (Sept 7-13, 2012) American's favorite actor said, "President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,"

The Pine Cone is the weekly newspaper for Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula. Clint Eastwood was the Mayor of Carmel, California from 1986 to 1988 and didn't run for a second term. Clint was elected in a landslide with 72% of the vote. President Ronald Reagan called Clint to congratulate him on his victory. Mayor Eastwood accomplished all of his campaign promises while in office and cleaned out a lot of the bureaucracy and red tape that riled him enough to run for office in the first place. You don't mess with The Enforcer.

0bama's using a STOLEN birth certificate (Virginia Sunahara's), we have no idea what his REAL birth date is but he said "My birthday next week" on July 15 2011, a STOLEN Social Security number issued in a State he never resided in (CT), and a PROVEN forged Selective Service Card.

Where's the hoax? /s

The reason he ran for mayor was that city hall was giving him grief over something he wanted to do...Won the election and fired everyone that gave me grief...

“The reason he ran for mayor was that city hall was giving him grief over something he wanted to do...Won the election and fired everyone that gave me grief...”

I’m not sure on the details but I think it had to do with zoning, building ordinances and permits. He bought an old building downtown and wanted to fix it up and make something out of it, but he ran into so much red tape that the High Plains Drifter decided to clean City Hall’s clock. Which he did.

FRONTIER JUSTICE WAS SWIFT AND EFFECTIVE





Vintage Remington 1861 Navy .36 conversion to .38 caliber:



This is a very interesting early cartridge conversion of an original Civil War era solid frame Remington Model 1861 Navy .36 percussion cap revolver to .38 caliber. with it*s vintage holster.

If you recall the dramatic duel scene in "PALE RIDER" this is basically a more modified and much better version of the same Remington Navy revolver that Clint Eastwood used.

- It was likely done at the Remington factory in 1872-73 by milling off the cack of the percussion cylinder where the percussion caps were fitted over six threaded steel nipples and a thin round steel plate was fitted behind the new cartridge conversion cylinder so a modified hanner would strike the rimfire or centerfire metallic cartridges.

Note that the right side of the frame behind the cylinder was milled to now allow loading of conversion cylinder without the need to first remove the cylinder and the octagon barrel was shortened to reduce weight and make the revolver quicker on the draw.

Bore on these .31 Navy revolvers made by Colt, Remington, Whitney, and Manhattan is .375 - not .356-.358 as modern .38 caliber revolvers are.

This required/requires using a metallic cartridge with a lead bullet that is the same diameter as the brass or copper case.

It would look better blued as old flakey nickle plating looks quite bad. Stripping the nickle plating, buffing, and refinishing this vintage Rem Navy would much improve it*s spotty appearance - but it would cost quite a bit to do it correctly.

Relining the barrel bore to .358" and recutting the forcing cone and retiming the action and complete refinishing could run up to about $2900 at Peacemaker Specialities.

It would no longer be an "unmessed with" well-used frontier antique - but Colt and Remington did modify, restore, and refinish fine firearms from 1872 until the 1920s.
