    That gun is a wool overcoat & fedora special. Something you toss in your bag packing for the steam ship to Cairo.
    It just looks like it could write a novel...

    Very cool find.

    Gambled and lost. This is now a very expensive project. It'll get it's own thread but:

    - Front sight arrived visibly canted to the right with massive leftward impacts on target.

    - While clamping to smack the blade upright, barrel popped fully loose.

    -Toquing down, it overclocks and blade is canted way left.

    - Plan to make shim stock washers from brass or steel so I get it to clock correctly then check cylinder gap. If kosher, clean threads, apply 242 Loctite, remount, allow to cure. If I can correct this with some Irish engineering, that would be ideal. A little brass bling betwixt barrel shoulder and frame would be cool.

    My stimulus money is going to a two week summer trip to Montana with the family. We'll be driving out from SC and staying with some family out there. We'll visit Yellowstone on the way and plan to hit Mt Rushmore and Little Big Horn coming or going. Maybe a couple other historic sites as well.

    My boys, 8 and 11, have fallen in love with the old west the last couple of months and spend much of their time pretending to be Doc and Wyatt and telling me I can be their Huckleberry.

    Ouch. Hope you can make it work reliably and well.
