Cylinder & grips
« on: March 30, 2015, 04:56:56 PM »
Today (on my 5-1/2"), I added a stainless cylinder from Cabela's (which sets off the brass trigger guard nicely) & imitation stag grips from gungrip.com. Despite some negative reviews, this is the 2nd set of grips from that co.; and, both times have been trouble-free. In fact, it seems there's been a manufacturing improvement, as they install quicker & easier than the last pair. Although I like the wooden grips, these certainly fill the hand better, with a more positive grip. I know this is a tease, as I don't have a camera; but, I can tell you that the gun looks great w/these 2 mods.

Do you have a friend with a cameras? Trying to visualize is not the same as actually SEEING the results.

Sounds interesting.  I do hereby second (or rather third) the motion to call for the posting of images.

If you have a "smart" phone or an iPad it's super easy, being that the camera and the computer from with you do your on-line posting are one in the same device.  Otherwise, once you get your photos loaded from your camera onto your computer, it's still pretty easy.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.   James 1:25 (KJV)

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.   James 2:12. (KJV)

I don't have any of those things (including a camera). My living in the past extends far beyond my choice of weapons.  ])M
