    Got this Uberti in a trade with my FFL buddy. It was a .357 with a big old long barrel, and it shot a foot to the left at 65 yards. Looked like a giraffe. I ordered a .45 Colt cylinder and barrel from Taylors, then made it into something useful.

    Took my time, and fit the cylinder and bushing in just short of an hour. Rebarrelling, gapping, and cutting a forcing cone was longer, a little over 3 hours. Now she hits tin cans dead on at any range, shooting right up the center. As accurate as my Ruger, with a much smoother action. I removed the front sight and hand filed it skinny, it was too fat, and re-installed. I carry this to town sometimes in a shoulder rig and baggy jacket. A very reassuring piece of machinery.

    Just added this baby to the mix. Here it is in unfired condition. It will lose its virginity tomorrow at the range.

    Smith and Wesson Model 2. My great grandfather bought it new. I got it from my great uncle. It's not a shooter but it means a lot to me.

    Funny......I bought the same gun seven years ago and loved it, but I wanted something a little bit modernized. I bought the Cylinder & Slide parts kit for it and spent three months recutting the tangs and fitting a beavertail safety and a rowel hammer, and the finished gun is a joy to shoot, 2.5 pound trigger and all. Here's the before and after shots.......





    I know I don't post here much anymore, but I do check in now and then. Sciatica and other issues keep me from sitting at the computer much, but I'm still pretty active for a broken-down old geezer.

    And while I pared down the gun collection quite a bit in the past few years, I still add something when it strikes my fancy. I know this hardly qualifies as a "Handgun", but the BATFE says it's a pistol, so who am I to argue?

    Ladies and Germs, I offer you a true Direct-Impingement AR-15 pistol, chambered in the awesome Ten Millimeter, fed from Glock magazines. I've said for a decade someone needs to make this, but no one did, so I snagged one from RMWXtreme on an auction, and couldn't be happier with it.

    It now wears a red dot Bushnell sight and a 3x magnifier, and it's capable of one-hole accuracy at 50 yards or better.

    I won this at an auction about a week ago. It's an early 3rd Generation Single Action Army Colt 45 from 1977:

    I was able to handle the revolver beforehand. Fitting in the grip-hammer-frame area looked good:

    DSC00388 (3).JPG

    The trigger pull was sweet and later measured 2 1/2 pounds on my Timney trigger gauge. 45 Colt ammunition was a little hard to find, but I located a box of Winchester 250 grain cowboy action lead flat nose ammo. A couple days ago, I took it to the range to see how it grouped and if it shot to point of aim at seven yards.

    Here's how the very first shot went:

    DSC00398 (2).JPG

    This was my best 5-shot group out of 40 rounds fired:

    I've never shot a SAA Colt 45 before or know much about them, but I think I may have found a keeper.
