# 1 1/2 RB

Post by frnkeore » Thu Jul 07, 2011 7:23 pm

I tried to search the forum for info on the 1 1/2's but, I got no results. Could someone help me find threads on the 1 1/2?

I've had mine for 20 years and know a little about them but, I'd like to know a lot more. I have Frank DeHaas's book, so i know that much. Any Idea how many were made and the least common caliber? I'm sure mine is probably the most common in 32RF. Were they mostly rotory extractors (but, I'm guessing the sliding was more common because it was earlier)? Mine is rotory. I would love to know all the tidbits.

tdyorder,
I believe yours are #2's. The #1 1/2 is approx 1 1/8 inches wide and use the same hammer and breech block as the #1 and #5.
