Pics Of Disassembled Paterson
« on: June 04, 2014, 09:28:04 PM »
Here are a few pics of a Paterson that I recently had torn down. They are a bit more complex than a common Colt percussion revolver. I can see the complexity as being one more reason for many shooters not wanting to have one. Sorry for the grip not being included in the pic, but it was in another room at the time soaking up some slow oil finish and I overlooked including it.

Well now, there ARE a few more bits & pieces. Still, I'd buy one if the opportunity comes my way!

Would you tell me about this "Slow Oil Finish?" I have never heard the term before.

Sorry about that Bill. Just a regular term that I adopted which referes to any of the hand rubbed, linseed based wood finishes with distilates added and which also takes months to cure out.

I might add; hand rubbed boiled linseed oil, when properly applied and cured, is one of the handsomest wood finishes there is IMHO. I did one on a .22 rifle back when I was a pup that took weeks to dry....and lasted decades.

Thanks for the quick come-back Scooby. I am hearing a lot of news terms lately, and that was oine of them.

There is another new term I'm hearing too. And that is Soap OIl. Does anybody know exactly what that is?
