Hi, I have an extra 1851 grips that I laser engraved:





They look pretty good IMO.

Tuco lives!

To be succinct, No. 

Pietta did/does not make pocket model or Dragoon sized pistols - regardless of what they call them.  They only make pistols based on the 1851 belt model sized frames.

The grips look like ASM. It's not a Pietta, dude doesn't know what he has.

I guess it all depends upon what one wants to spend on a copy. There are a lot of us that collect Italian copies.

Nice!


Got new tires on the Patriot - again. It came with Goodyear Wrangler all-seasons, which were garbage. By the time the Patriot had 25,000 miles on it, we had replaced 3 of the 4 tires because they had delaminated. So, we put on Yokohama Geolandar AT-S tires on. Decent handling off-road capable tires. Problem was, they were a 50,000 mile tire, and we went through two sets in 70,000 miles. Now I put on Continental Terrain Contacts. 60,000 mile tire, more aggressive tread. We'll see how they do.

It was sold for $400 it says. And then the buyer had to pay some fees? What would be the total price?
Wasn't that a bit expensive for a copy?

I recently got back from an anniversary trip with the wife. We went to Lost River State Park in WV and rented an old 1930's CCC cabin. Fantastic trip, barely anyone else in the park, just you, the wilderness, and the cabin. It was great to get away for a while, zero phone signal there. I got to pay a visit to Lighthorse Harry Lee's summer home that's built on the grounds and his sulfur spring which smells exactly the way you think it would. I highly recommend the area if you're ever looking to totally escape; it gave me some more motivation to keep hunting for gigs out in West Virginia.

Richard,

To my knowledge, no. Only Uberti and ASM made those. ASM also produced an 1848 Pocket with a squareback TG.

Regards,

Jim

Hi, did Pietta ever make a 1849 replica?
