This is one of my favorite 41 Colt revolvers, a nickle Storekeeper model.

Wow Em, you've got some gems!

The Thunderer is a way cool gun. I've heard the lockwork is a little on the fragile side. But I have zero experience with that.

Always one of my favorites. Picked one up at the Dallas gun show a few weeks back for the shop. Now we have a 38 and a 41. Parts are scarce....but we got the 41 functioning perfectly.

At one time I had a pretty decent collection, but have sold a few off in the last 3 years. I kept the better ones. This one works great in DA and SA. Yeah, they do have a reputation for being a little fragile, also that they are difficult to work on. Like anything else, if you beat it it won't last long. The last parts I bought, I got them from Dixie Gun Works. I also have one Lightning left.
