Oh, drooling now! That one is on my short list if I ever manage to scrape some cash together (with the economy and recent downturns in business, not likely anytime soon). I do appreciate you putting that one up. You don't see a lot of L&R's out there, especially Ubertis.

The Leech and Ridgon is on my watch list.  I like the Dragoon barrel.

Nice one Dave.  They are one of my favorites too.

Couldn't afford to buy one, so, I bought a steel Navy frame and took the barrel and cylinder from my old Navy Arms G&G (since I have my home made 1st model G&G) and made myself a Leech Rigdon. Handles sweet, still a little stiff because of a very strong hand spring.
