    If I had the cash, it would be in my safe. Right now, I would have to sell of some guns before I could buy anything else. It is a sweet looking piece though and oh so tempting!

    I picked up a 1906 mfg 1910 that looks a sight worse than yours. I got it for $25. It needs a barrel re-line also. The chamber has a bulge in it that jams the case in it. As soon as I take care of a few $ obligations I will get it done. I have...

    I traded into a Virgin Valley 45-70 barrel from a buddy of mine. He just never shot it. I am seriously thinking about taking it on my upcoming cow elk hunt. I decided to have a little quick fun this afternoon and try something. I loaded three...

    I have a Rossi in .44 Mag. It is a ball to shoot. When I have time I will tune it up and make it even more so. I would not hesitate to buy another.

    If I remember right, and I may be wrong. The wood bottom magazines were from WW1 and the Bakelite ones were from WW2. This being due to the increase of skill I manufacturing of plastic forming. I had in my safe for a while a WW1 naval Luger with...

    My middle kids favorite movie right now is the mummy movies. When I saw this thread I thought how cool it would be for him to shoot the same guns that Brendan Frazier shoots in the movie. Then I saw the cost of them. Cool revolvers but for $750...
