Have had the G&G refinished for a while now. All barrel stamping is also now gone. Been shooting it once a week. Have really taken a liking to this particular pistol. Also partial to the look of the oct. to round (dragoon style) profile of the barrel. Put 42 rounds through it today. Took these 4 pics afterward to share with you.

very nice. I am not normally a fan of brassers but yours is making me reconsider for those historically correct versions. I too like the Walker/dragoon style barrel.

Thanks to all for the great picture comments (T^

Indy, as I said in a different post some time back, I was not much into brass framed pistols myself, but have a different outlook now. Biggest reason was because way back then when I got into shooting percussion revolvers, I had always read that they would shoot loose, but no one was talking much or suggesting reduced loads. I also had "full load" syndrome on the brain because of my hunting background.

I had read up a bit on CSA revolvers over the years, so I had an interest in them from a historical aspect. After joining this forum, that interest peaked, so now I have two copies. As well, now that I have a much larger selection of percussion revolvers, I am enjoying shooting the reduced load brassers just as much as my steel framed versions. The brassers have added an additional element to my love for firearms and the historical connection is a plus.

Been toying around with the idea of getting a Spiller and Burr now to add to my small CSA group. Of course now, I wont pass on any local good deals on brassers of any style, regardless of historical correct version or not. A few years back, I passed on a sheriff modle in .44 for $100 from a local just cuz it was a brasser :(

Thank you. I will make a note of that, but for now I wait a while, as it is your new unique signature.
