Early guns often had to be reloaded after each shot, which was a distinct disadvantage when fighting fast troops that sought to engage in melee or knock riders off horses. The invention of the lever-action repeating Winchester rifle allowed for its owner to fire, reliably, multiple shots before reloading. This weapon has received the reputation of "the gun that won the west".
Native Americans prized any gun they acquired as they were unable to manufacture them. This did not prevent them becoming skilled marksmen however.
This 40mm scale black rubber mould has huge recasting potential and is designed to be used with low temperature casting metal alloys including pewter. Model metal is an alloy of lead, tin and bismuth and is recomemnded for this type of mould. There is no assembly of the figure after casting it.
The master was designed by hand by Holger Eriksson in the 60's and 70's. On average you should be able to cast about 5 figures from a single ingot of metal provided you remelt the ingates afterwards.
If this is your first time casting miniatures from rubber moulds then please also include our accessory kit and some metal to complete your purchase otherwise the mould will be useless.
