Dear Friends,
            I have to be honest, but to me, a blued revolver with a bright shiny Nickel or Stainless cylinder, looks like a $7.oo cap pistol from the dollar store! Just sayin'!

Dear Friends,
            I may say things that some of you disagree with, but By Golley, I am always truthful in my opinions!  I just like a plain Blued Steel Gun!  It looks like the originals, it looks Workmanlike. A soldier from the War of Northern Aggression wold have carried a plain Blue Steel gun, and,since his life may have depended upon it, he'd most likely have looked after it! Kept it clean and well oiled!
            I DO confess to being a little Flamboyant about grips!  I DO think that Faux (I cannot afford REAL Ivory!) Ivory looks very nice on a blued gun.  I was disappointed that the ones I bought online did NOT have the quality I needed!  The escutchion with the thread pulled right through the right hand grip, and when I asked the makers to replace it, they just sent me my $30.oo back!  I cannot recall what the company name was.  I'm going to have a look at, "Gungrip.com," and if it is the same company, I'll pass on them!

I've bought 2 pairs of imitation stag grips from that company. The 2nd was an improvement over the 1st -- except that the left-grip screw hole didn't need to be sunk in as far as it was. The end of the screw sticks out too far in the right grip. But, all that's needed is a washer or 2 at the screw head. It would be nice to get a perfect item; but if I did, it would prob'ly be a shock to my system, as it's so hard to find anything that's anywhere near perfect these days. BTW, I kept the stainless cylinder (which I think looks great -- def. not like a capgun), but reinstalled the wood grips. I like 'em 'cause they're stained a little darker than most.

I'm still kicking the bone grips idea around.


MD, give us a report on the cylinder firing please!  I've wanted to load up and extra cylinder and test it myself, maybe on a shelf in the woodshed, garage, or something. Load and cap with the caps sealed with bee's wax.
Nothing expresses Liberty more, than the report of a rifle shot fired in the defense of Freedom.

Bone grips are a definite maybe for me too. I'll wait until the weather is nice before cutting them out though, too odoriferous for indoor work! {:(
