There are several ways to do high/low pressure, it is never realized how much barrel weight was saved doing it this way, plus the advantage of quicker and easier loading.
Nice looking round, congrats
Here are some found by some hard working gentlemen here in Europe. Not as nice as Dave's, but very hard to find with the original paint (and fill).
