Made from a kit
« on: July 24, 2020, 01:16:22 PM »
I had an unfinished kit gun and wanted to make something different. This is what I came up with. Took a perfectly good new gun and chopped it up!

It was a kit so it doesn't count, Em.
Besides, it's droolworthy! :P

Yep. I'd carry that with pride Em.

I like the grip. Nicely done.

And I thought I was bad being a Pietta 1851 Navy "type" parts changer creating Confederate revolvers.

We will all be giving future collectors/students of these revolvers fits when it comes to collector status if they try to study what was factory and what was not.

I don't care for the snubbies but that is a nice looking revolver! You must recall that I am one of the "historical" collectors here. No matter.

Regards,

Jim

Jim, I am normally an HC type of guy but I just thought I would try something different. This kit was an earlier one where the only finished pieces were the cylinder and barrel. The frame had milling marks and the brass needed filing and polishing. It was truly a learning experience!
