Official Photo Submission Thread

We're going to put a photo of a collector revolver, at the top if the home page. It will be the first thing people see when they arrive here at our forum. But we want the photo to be one from the membership.

So get out your collector BP pistols and take some pictures!

Post the photo here, and after a period of time, we'll all vote for our favorite. The winner will be displayed on the home page.

So, let's see those pistols everyone!!

Well, here's my submission...EIG Baby Dragoon. No date codes or manufacturer's marks...may have been a kit gun? Dr. Jim Davis was intrigued by the fact that it came with a loading lever and the fact that the roll engraving on the cylinder is not the standard Ormsby stagecoach scene. Somebody (P.O.) deepened the notch in the hammer and added a taller front sight.

Here is what the late Dr. Davis had to say regarding this revolver:

--- Quote from: drjldavis on June 20, 2011, 01:51:29 PM ---I would consider this Baby Dragoon a very collectable piece.  It is the first EIG marked Baby Dragoon that I have seen in over twenty years of study and collecting.  I have a EIG marked Pocket Model but no Baby Dragoons.  Also my Pocket Model has the standard Ormby's Stagecoach Scene engraving on the cylinder.

Here's my submission.

My somewhat rare, Uberti Stainless 1851 Navy. It dates to 1984, and so far it is only the 37th one accounted for.

My submission.

Cased set Armi San Marco 1860 Army (BD/1994) with full-fluted (Uberti) and engraved (ASM) cylinders. Shoulder stock is of unknown manufacture: wood is tiger stripe maple stained dark. Euroarms ball/conical bullet mould and powder flask. Case, shoulder stock, and accoutrements were once part of Dr. Jim L. Davis' RPRCA collection.
