Belly Buster
« on: February 19, 2020, 07:35:17 AM »
Here's one I made a little while back. It started life as a Pietta .44 Navy. I cut the barrel down to 3" and re-contured the loading lever lug. It's also sporting an Army size grip. After all the cutting, grinding and filing, I re-blued the barrel and installed a brass bead front sight.

Thanks! It was a fun little gun. It belongs to someone else now. I sold it a while back.
