     I have 2 Spiller & Burrs with consecutive 2 digit serial numbers from the "double diamond company".  I got them from a friend now long deceased and they are from the first production run of that model by that company.  His widow still has the third one that he owned which has serial number 1.  I wish I had asked him who made them when I had the chance though at the time everyone seemed to believe they were Piettas.  The only thing he ever said about them was that he had an original Spiller and Burr that he loaned, through a friend, to that company to be copied.

Colts / Walker Cylinder Finish

     Were the cylinders on original Colt Walkers blued or left in the white?  I understand some Dragoons had white cylinders so I was thinking about striping the blue off my Walker if that is the way some were manufactured.
