Mine show more wear and tear and the photography isn't as good as @Cocked & Locked but here's my contribution to this thread.
1960 Colt SAA .357 Magnum
1965 Colt SAA .45 Colt
Great Western .45 Colt
Coming soon, Ruger Wrangler.
Nice! All of them. Good looking stags on the 357.
The finest SAA I ever owned. Engraved by Robert Burt. I bought this gun from Phillip in Wagram. I no longer own it. It is in one of the most prestigious collections in America. Though it brought me many thousands of dollars it was meant to be somewhere else. Under heavy magnification it was amazing. The horse's tail blowing in the wind and the sage brush and mountains in the back were wonderful. The Chief with the war bonnet on looked as if he might speak. I have many others still, but This was my finest moment in Colt ownership.
Holy cow, dude! That is the barbecue rig of all barbecue rigs. Woof.
Awesome engraving on that shiny Colt. This thread just reached the highest peak possible.
Beautiful engraving. But where did that "stumpy" (short barrel) one come from? Never seen one like that.
You should hold that one in your hands and look at all the work that went into it. Billy will be along to tell about t.
You Sir just named that old girl. Henceforth it will be known as "stumpy". It started life as a Ruger . I read Hamilton Bowen's book Custom Revolvers [important, if you don't own this book Get It], there are several "light weights" shown that look like he gun you asked about. I contacted Bowen and he told me to send him a gun and $2,500 and in a year or so I could have one. I told him I appreciated him talking to me and good-bye. I then went through my stash and found this Vaquero that Mike had given me for some occasion. I contacted The Don..Carroway. With the book and the gun my old friend pulled out from Battery Oaks to start this journey. About a month later it was finished as far as the whittling was concerned. Mike then sent it to JD Jones for a front sight and re finishing. It came back as you see it. It truly looks like Black Chrome. It has a 1 1/2 pound trigger and is deadly accurate. Once, with witnesses, I shot at a 4 foot tall 8 inch wide gas cylinder at 300 yards hitting it 4 times outta 12.
Come see us and shoot that thing it is wonderful. STUMPY...perfect!
Total cost to me for what you see turned out to be …..$O !!! Good to have Pards in the right places.
Tell em how high you were holding over.
It is a unique gun. That finish does look like black chrome. If I ever make it your way would love to see it. The others are equally awesome, I knew that one had a story. And I like that "when the whittling was done ". Thanks for sharing.
Wellll, one of the spotters said...... where are you holding? I said...Ya see that pine tree behind that cylinder, I'm aiming at the Top.
I was raining 230 Ball in on the cylinder. BIG FUN!!! 4 outta 12 at 300 with the Mighty Stumpy!
10-4 on shooting for the stars. 300yds!!!
NRA Centennial I inherited from my dad.
I’m having some custom leather made for it now at Jackson’s Leather in Asheville.
My NM Vaquero. 45acp.
How it gets carried.
The blade...The blade
Nice revolvers in this thread!
I like the looks of that ejectorless Single Action. What is it? Silver dollars and sipping whiskey ain't bad either.
It is a Liberty LTD not sure who that is. I bought it off GunBroker a few years ago. When my Dad got bad off I sold it. A gunsmith had it and added the mother of pearl diamonds. I was able to buy it back when he closed shop.
Taylor's & Co. Uberti Stallion Birdshead 38 special with Buck knife. Picked this up at the Taylor's & Co. Open House event.
Crossdraw holster for the Stallion....
I've seen that one in person and the finish looks like polished hematite; it's an amazing piece.
Here she is in new clothes.
Here is a Colt Florida Territory that I got from a friend of my father after he passed away. I do not think it was ever shot.
I call this'n a Ruger Lightnin' 32... it says 32 H&R Magnum, but it's been reamed to 327.
