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

My dear Racing have you given any idea as to the hammer spur? Such as lowering it to function like a Ruger Bisley style spur. i am getting arthritis in my right hand and sometime reaching up for that trigger spur is a little painful. i have a Ruger Blackhawk in 357 Mag that could use the same thing. on it though is just a Hammer swap i believe, the Remington or even my Colts are a little tougher.thoughts or ideas from anyone is appreciated.   {+* (^h

Uhu.
Well,one of the advantages here,as it turned out,is that the original Remmys were made from Swedish cast steel back in the day.
Why that is an advantage?
Well,actually LIVING over here that means that we can go back and check what this was at the time. As it turns out the material is as weldable as they come.
In other words adding material to the hammer to reshape it to whatever form is certainly doable.

The hammer on this actual gun,it´s spur was broken off. Look at the pics of the "original" gun and you´ll see. Some amatuer tried welding it back in place..half assed.
That means that the spur on there right now has been formed by welding material being formed to shape. It also means that it lacks serrations/knurling of any kind and...no. Last word on the subject sure isn´t said yet.

I´ve actually given thought to a "commander" spur look and function.

The hammer is certainly weld-able. I added material to the hammer on my DA .36 Riders Rem, as the part engaging the safety slots had been damaged/filed down.
