I always shoot my collectables. Prolly shouldn't but ... i really like the feel and history that eminates  from them while shooting them.

Shoot her, she was built and then rebuilt to be a tool.

I also think the cylinder is a replacement but im bettin the original was too poraouse to be safe. The frame looks pretty good and i betcha she will still beltch smoke and sparks just like it was intended to do.

Do keep us in the loop as i for one would like to see soot on the very nice finish.

Did Colt make any top strap percussion firearms? I know the answer, just wanting to forward info to newcomers.

Gotta love those saves, PF. Far better than a mercy killing IMHO.

Richard, I do confess to being a bit envious of your BP range. If I could step out onto that daily, I'd have a lot more to talk about.

The 1/2x12" AR550 gong arrived yesterday. Today I painted it white. The gong with the paint drying:



My other targets are AR500 steel. This target should take hits without damage when using high power rifles. High power rifles would leave small pits on AR500 steel.

Now where to put the new AR550 gong:



No, bending over isn't isn't an appropriate answer.  *6' *6' *6'

Richard
