Used but no abused Fred Schmidt short cylinder 38 sp followed me home yesterday. Going to be a great Steel Challenge Gun. Price was too good to pass up...https://www.dropbox.com/s/1ibaynov0sjsh ... 0.jpg?dl=0


interesting ad in one of the gun mags about the short cylinder and not leading up….

Fred , being in the APG was aware of the Taylor Throat... That had more to do with reduction of leading than the short cylinder.
There is very little benefit to the short cylinder concept..Those that copied the short cylinder, but failed to incorporate the Taylor Throat, often suffered a split forcing cone.

I knew Fred personally.. Old school German machinist. WhenI was competing heavily in PPC, I shot a short cylinder of my own. I also owned several of Fred's. I traveled the PPC matches with Lou Seigel. He tested and used all of Fred's guns. Fred lived just outside of Richmond. He died of a heart attack in 1986.
