Title: A few Schneider & Glassicks
Post by: Rcampb6131 on May 26, 2016, 12:41:21 PM
Top to bottom:  a Luciano Giacosa (GLB) imported by EIG Cutley of Miami, FL, dated 1966; a Pietta by swapping the barrel assemblies between a Griawold & Gunnison and an 1851 Navy; a Riva Esterina imported by FIE and dated 1975; and a Fusav di Bini & Baronio dated 1978.

Nice set of brassers,  and from a couple of the lesser known makers of yesteryear.

Top to bottom:  a Luciano Giacosa (GLB) imported by EIG Cutley of Miami, FL, dated 1966; a Pietta by swapping the barrel assemblies between a Griswold & Gunnison and an 1851 Navy; a Riva Esterina imported by FIE and dated 1975; and a Fusav di Bini & Baronio dated 1978.

I like the wood on #2 and #4. The wood on number #1 reminds me of the stuff High Standard put on their guns when they were producing replicas. Too blond, too ugly.

Bolded: I have done that and am awaiting funds to purchase a Pietta 1851 Navy steel .36 round TG in order to create the following pistols (all Pietta .36) in addition to the 2 Pietta pistols I have:

1851 Navy Second Model Squareback Trigger Guard

1851 Navy Third Model Round Trigger Guard

G&G .36

S&G .36

Leech and Rigdon .36

And my favorite fantasy pistol: an 1851 Navy Second Model Dragoon .36 Squareback TG with the part round/part octagon barrel. I love the 1851 Navy for its lines but this is a sweeter design. A 2nd Model Dragoon in a smaller package.

I am also awaiting word insofar as the Pietta Dance & Brothers .44 as to whether it has a frame like the Pietta 1851 Navy. I have a hard time believing that Pietta would set up a new machining operation to slightly manipulate the frame, screw locations, et al.

I would like to have a Pietta Dance .36, and I have documents that ascertain that Dance actually produced a few revolvers that had recoil shields.

We shall see...

Sweet collection!
Not to be nit-picky, but only the top two could pass as S&G's as the bottom two have roll engraved cylinders.
But who cares, right? Way cool guns and rarities to boot. Enjoy!

You are correct, the cylinder engraving detracts from the authenticity, but I have hesitated to remove it for fear of screwing up the cylinders.  Since they are fairly rare maybe I should just leave them alone.

Nice set of brass framed revolvers. Ya, go ahead and leave the roll engraving on the two since they are rare.

Nothing like an original repro that can't be duplicated.

Heck, you have a Pietta swap with a plain cylinder to show off. Leave the original early Italians alone. They will be worth money in the long run.

I am envious. Nice collection, sir.
