blowing a little money

Ok so those of you who know me personally know that I'm the worst tight-wad in the history of mankind, and now those of you who just read my blog, know it too. If it doesn't help my blacksmithing business, I don't buy it. That's pretty much me.

I LOVE blackpowder firearms. Especially traditional ones. After I got out of reenacting, I sold my musket.....no need for it. I've missed shooting blackpowder. One of the guns I've always wanted is the open top, 44 revolver. I had the opportunity to buy a new condition one for about a third the normal price and couldn't resist.

The brass needed polishing and one of the parts needed adjusting. I did all that last night and oiled up all of the moving parts. The revolver does not look like it's ever been shot before.

It has a 7.5 inch barrel.


I actually took this picture myself. This is not a picture of me....this is a reflection of me in a mirror. :D   STICK-'M-UP!

Is it from A. Uberti? I know you've talked about buying stuff from them before.
