    This is great to see, and just the kind of thing I’m into! I have a mint condition Scoville 1907M I was considering doing the same thing to. It still has the linen cover at the bottom of the magazine, and the interior parts that would contact powder still have the red shellac coating. Why it was never loaded I don’t know. It’s the most complete I’ve seen.
    Thanks again!

    See other examples of my disassembled fuzes in my Member's Galleries.
    If your fuze has not been fired, be carefull with the concussion and percussion units: they are still active, even after 100 years!

    No worries about not being fired, I said it was never LOADED. All the brass parts are mint with no powder or primers anywhere.
