    I once held in my two young hands a .41 Magnum Python. A local gunsmith shop built 125 of them back in the late 80s. I don’t recall the price, but it didn’t matter. I had a new, somewhat...

    That would make some sense, since it was just a Trooper MK V with a Parkerized finish.

    I owned a Peace Keeper for a number of years, and while it might take home a ribbon from the stock show, it was still a pig.

    The trigger made a stock Security Six feel smooth & light.

    Scales for the GP100

    Can’t say, I never cut antler, but I am familiar with burnt bone.

    I cut up a phenolic router table insert once to build some jigs and it smelled pretty bad. Micarta is close to the same thing.

    Yeah I looked it up on Ruger’s site. Those are 1/4” longer than mine.

    I ordered the rubber off of Amazon. My support-hand pinky needs a place to rest.

    EGW/Swamp Fox Justice.

    Are those oversized grips on your GP100? They look bigger.

    Too light is relative.

    Really the topic should be mainspring strength since that’s what drives ignition. While DA pull weight is mostly overcoming the main spring, your trigger finger is also...

    Scales for the GP100

    The original scales on my GP100 split.

    I made my own pair out of mesquite, but didn’t realize how thin they had to be. Mesquite being hard but brittle, didn’t work out too well.
