Ditto, the gloss just looks cheap and garrish. JMO. There are guns it looks good on but I never saw a revolver look good with them.

Congrats Racing!. A very nice job!
@ Hawg: not to worry, the gloss will be gone, once the oil is absorbed.

NE.
I can only ask where the dotted line is at,seing what you just put forth.

One major difference between England and us boys is that we´re allowed to use these old guns sans any permit. That´s about it though,and althought the countries of Europe differ a bit state to state when it comes to this the law surrounding these oldies are about on par.
What´s set to 1890 here..then what the Brits call "obsolete caliber" and what not. So,there´s difference although they ain´t like the turn of a palm.

Again.
No. In doing this i´ve been very aware of the law and i strive to be a law abiding citizen. Of course. Then,seing this..WTF can i add?
Really?

What you say as far as people like Mr Righteous there..yeah. They indeed ARE more dangerous to the shooting community then any "ban it all" people as they are of a greater level of knowledge.
This ass KNOWS what the law states. There´s not even the blink of an eye of doubt as far as that. But..damned if you do,damned if you don´t.
That simple.

I have just read this back again. Are you misunderstanding me ?

I am NOT saying or even remotely implying that you have done anything illegal here. If anything what I am saying is that common sense tells me that you HAVE NOT done anything illegal by rebuilding this revolver into it's current form.

Racing my friend I have no idea what all the ruckus is all about but here in the great LONE STAR STATE we have a saying " WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND " or " PAYBACK IS A BITCH ". Be cool my friend you are within your rights. I let words no longer bother me. I would say ball is in his court. Ok now to your new old toy, I love the look you got going. The grip is the only rough spot for me. 5'11" and 260 lbs I am no small man and my hands are big also. I need a little more grip area but the rest really appeals to me. Have you totally decided to do away with the sail? Cylinder pin retention? Devise a Colt style push button :-X or screw in the pin head? :-X
