1st of all, snaggletooth, (AKA Decrepit), glad you're recuperating!!!!   



In a local internet site like craigslist that allows guns, in the parts department I found my dream gun...in parts. It's an 1873 Army in 32-20. The parts range from 1872 - 1907, it had a major well-brazed frame repair done years ago, that's only visible due to oxidation, it was the previous owners woods gun. Came with a set of dies, 100, shot once shells and a box of Nosler 100g hollow points. Don loaded with 4g of Unique which is the load I used for my old 73' Winchester I was forced to sell. I took it out back and put a few slugs down range, shoots great, obviously the timing and lockup are great. Guess I was wrong when I said my collecting days were over.

That's a good looking peacemaker, I love that caliber. I know you'll enjoy that one. {\+

I know that you know metal, so how is the old repair?

I'm guessing it's real old. Pretty well done too. Whoever did the work was thinking along the lines I would have chosen. When he made the bridge he also recessed the chamber tops so that the bullets could be inserted a bit further (the depth of the shell rim), so there's no interference with the plate. The firing pin is an insert that's pinned so I'm sure he made an elongated one to properly set off the primers.
