Yep, that’s a handsome little number.  The loading lever looks pretty short.  Is it practical to load up on the gun?

[Side Note:  When I hear that Bruce is bored I immediately look for the nearest cover.] ;)

Nice job on that gun! But why would you want to do that to a perfectly good gun?! LOL! I did the same thing about 3-4 years ago. M__  Did you make your own arbor retainer? And did you cut the barrel off on the gun or with a lathe?

i cut the barrel with a hacksaw which went way easier than i thought it would. i cut the loading lever with the hacksaw also, which was way harder than the barrel, i welded it to the cylinder pin so i have to unscrew it to remove the cylinder to load it on a stand... i figure this thing is more of a toy than a shooter, so its no big deal... i might be picking up a gated kirst conversion cylinder for it...

Pretty cool "44 Fireball".
The Brits would call it a Bulldog, and some would call it an Avenging Angel, but I'm thinking "Fireball" would likely be more descriptive in this case.  Will it end up with a front sight?

Omni, I can't speak for Bruce, but I did put a front sight on mine. Probably superfluous as the sight radius is pretty short!
