Tom Frank Heavy Copper Cups (seconds)

 

I forgot that I had these tucked away. I have several sets of these heavy cups. They are all great for street work. These were "seconds" with not too neatly trimmed metal before mouth bead was rolled. These cups have never been polished. This is all I have. When they are gone, that's it. That mouth bead inconsistency will only affect close-up work ... $105 per set

Abbotts' Shooting a Ribbon Thru A Girl (Complete with special rifle, target, and sash) ... (SOLD left up for reference)

The setup is complete. It includes a modified bolt action 22 caliber rifle which fires blanks. The original barrel has been replaced by a larger diameter barrel and ram rod for stuffing the ribbon into the barrel.

The sash has a spring loaded lid on the front ribbon box and pocket on the rear.

The target is mounted on a folding metal base and does its job perfectly.

My presentation was for gun clubs where I dressed as a red neck hunter type in red plaid jacket and cap with ear mutts. I went through a mock safety talk accidentally shooting a coffee mug off of the table before going into the marksmanship demo. I was to give a demo showing how to shoot the pip from the center of an ace held by my assistant. The ribbon would allow the audience to see the path of the speeding bullet. The ribbon was stuffed into the barrel with the ram rod, blank loaded, aimed, and fired. Big loud bang, girl screamed as she pulled ribbon back and forth through her body. Black out, curtains closed.

Everything works perfectly. This is similar in concept to the P&L version without the very dangerous dart mechanism.

Hopefully this will answer all of the questions about the apparatus. I do not know how many of these Abbott's made but this is the only one I ever ran across.
