There are gun lovers here in the City of Angels
« on: January 13, 2016, 10:09:28 PM »
A LOUD report!
A moan   "...damn cap!"
...slight pause
Four more deafening reports!!

A deeply satisfied giggle.
From out of the cloud of smoke emerges ..mo58!  &\?

Welcome to the forum!  Grab a seat and get yourself some coffee.  When you are comfortable, join or start a conversation.  We like photos, some of us don't read letters too well.

Yep!  Found that hiding out in the "used" cylinder display box at Deer Creek  (jh Considering the supply and demand prices for Dance spares  ...I saved money by spending it!  :P

From a newbie to a newbie : welcome to Colt Country !
You have two rarities there : a 36 caliber Dance and a half fluted 1851. I expect the Dance is a Pietta, is it not ? Regarding the 1851, I also have an half fluted one, but it also has a lanyard ring on the butt. Is your half fluted cylinder original to the revolver or did you swap it ?

Good to see m058 over here. Welcome bud.

There are cool firearms in L.A., it's not just a town of stolen Glocks.

Dance is a Pietta. 51 is a Uberti London. Fluted cylinder ...also found that at Deer Creek. Had to take a bit off the face to fit it ...still needs more fitting. Timed perfect, shoots great , but gap is almost 000 right now so after a few shots she gets a bit sticky.  :P
