New to this forum, glad I found you all, I just bought a Bob Tingle sgl shot pistol #636 and wondering when it was mfg. Definitely not a later Navy Arms or T/C copy. I did enough research to justify the purchase for a shooter, But would like a little more history. Thanx for any input...Sierra Madre Muzzle Loaders. Very Happy

Thanx for the info Hawkthrower, it led to other resources! I too am a hawkthrower, just not much of a card cutter LOL. Jackson, I appreciate the warm welcome. I've been a member of the blk pwdr club here for years, but never fired a shot!, Just throw the hawk and help with events. We have a lot of kids competition and some wonderful sponsors. I've been a member of the 4000 FPS club and I've endured a huge amount of heckling long enough. IT"S TIME. sunny

Glad to help!! Anytime!!

Just for fun, My kids like to warn "new comers" not to get within throwing distance if I've got something pointy handy...... Most don't get it! Then after a small demonstration they "really get it"!  Very Happy

PostSubject: tingle pistol   February 3rd 2017, 8:30 am

I bought my Tingle online ( inline/online Smile ) 10" oct 40 cal. Should be here today, HOORAY! I'll try to figure out how to send pics. The reason I became interested in blk pwdr is: I live @ 7,300' just above the Encampment river, an area with a ton of history. The Sierra Madre rendezvous is held each year 7-21 thru 23rd a block from my house! I would listen to all of the shooting and revelry and had to check it out. I trap winters here and work summers ,can't afford to retire with all of my bad habits Laughing  hot rod pickups, guns etc. So trapping, guns, friends, competition, it was a natural. A big plus is my grandsons love it !!!

PostSubject: tingle 10" 40 cal pictures   February 9th 2017, 8:15 am

Gentlemen I hope I can figure out how to send pics. After receiving the pistol last Sat I was very surprised at the good condition! Possibly unfired? 100% blue, even around the grip frame and trigger opening. 100% case colors on the hammer and trigger, perfect shiny bore, clean nipple area, no marks on the grips, etc, etc. I'm currently building a loading stand like the one pictured on this site with a 7 1/2"bbl. Also a adjustable ramrod. My ROA is pictured also, had it for years and never fired it, used but nice. Made the holster. Probably won't need one for the "shooting event" pistol. Members of the "Sierra Madre" muzzle loaders are helping me out with my project so if 71 yr old eyes and muscles hold out I'll be shooting soon. Trapper... PS Guess I'll hafta wait until my computer tech gets home from work to show me how to downsize my pictures so I can post.
