Nice work! You could try putting a big-ass center punch right smack in the center and do it that way, or squeeze both ends in a vise.

My buddy bought a HS cased set with a G&G and cutlass, serialed alike. It was, according to him, the absolute worst action of his collection. He sold it.

A lot of times when I make online purchases, I get emails ASKING for reviews only days after I receive the item...like how the hell am I supposed to know after I just opened the box? I think some people feel pressured to leave a review, and if it's new, there can't be much wrong with it, right?
Midway has been doing this lately, and to leave a review they start asking the basics but quickly move into digging for what I consider 'personal information' and I always get disgusted and click out of the survey. Asking how much I make yearly or my age bracket is none of their damn business.

LP, I've seen some of the HS guns and the grips definitely look re-finished. All the ones I've seen have been a light/cherry color, high gloss. This definitely has timing/lockup issues by the looks of the cylinder, and the one I handled also had a CCH loading lever. As for the SB trigger guard...unusual. IMHO, asking WAY too much for a used brasser with no case, box or papers.
I would pass unless you really have a jones on...a couple hundo more would score you a nice sig series Colt.

The mould is brass...why not try using a solid piece of 7/32 brass rod and stake the ends?

Seller replied- 

'Yes.  It is stamped Colt's Patent on the frame.'

So then, that would make it less desirable, but would not leave it out of the race completely, right?

Not Cheap.

Those two Dragoons at the bottom of the list don't look too bad?

Ahem..now then, if there's whiskey to be consumed, I think I should be involved in this-here redemption.  )l_
