Rust browned? Cool.

It looks similar to this L&R in France: http://repliquesoldwest.superforum.fr/t6560-leech-rigdon-enfin-presque

Here is my old 51 Conversion in 44 Russian, I know there was no such caliber in a 51 but it is a good shooter. It has had many, many rounds fired in it with no problems, and it is a ASM. I know I have been lucky I have had no problems.

Very nice. My two favorite reproductions are the Leech and Rigdon and the Dance. Just like em.
The Dance got the same treatment as it was the other gun that lost it's blue when I screwed up and dunked both guns in the Hornaday Ultrasonic cleaner with the brass cleaning liquid. Now that that crisis is over and the guns are refinished like museum guns, I really like them. However, if I had not messed up and ruined the finish on the guns accidentally, I probably would not have refinished them. Luckily, I like the result.

FiremanBrad, that is a cool background! and a mighty fine revolver.

here's the one my lady just picked up this past weekend:

looks to be a circa 1993 manufactured Armi San Marco.  The grip feels just lovely.

and at the gunshow she picked up a mighty fine antique holster too.  It's a bit short, and looked to at one time hold an Open Top, or conversion, as it has a bump on the side for an ejection rod but no hump on the top for a topstrap:


the holster literally just sucks the gun in and keeps it nice and tight.  The strap over the hammer isn't really even needed.

Just finished this one, bobbed barrel to 5", defarbed and re-blued it and the ejector.  Kirst Konverter and ejector, fires heel base ammo with 18 grains 3F Olde Ensford black powder.  I haven't lubed the bullets in the pics yet, normally I won't lube them until the day I shoot.  I just melt some lube in the microwave and dip the bullets nose first, or else just dip in crisco at the range.

No pics...yet.  I have this itch that I might just have to scratch.  Let's say you were to take a second gen Colt 1851...let's go with a Signature Series gun because they are usually cheaper, and install an 1861 grass grip frame and trigger guard.  While I am at it, I will replace all of the screws with a set of hardened screws from Uberti.  But, before I install them, I will polish and nitre blue them.  For grips, I think I will go with a set of Mexican Eagle polymers from Buffalo Brothers.  Just for grins, let's install an R&D gated conversion cylinder in .38 Long Colt.  Since picking empty cases out with my fingernails is a pain, let's also install a Kirst ejector rod.  Pretty nifty so far, but not as handy as I would like.  So, out comes the hacksaw....  WHACK  4 5/8" barrel with flat, uncrowned barrel, just like the three inches of barrel on the floor.  Dang...no front sight!  Kinda hard to aim without one.  Let's install a dovetailed front sight, since it is easier to see.  Stepping back to admire my handiwork, I realize that this is exactly the gun shown on the back cover of Adler's Cartridge Conversion book.  I am sure I will be taken to task since Uberti already makes an R-M version that is very close to what I just described.  Yes they do....  But it lacks two things that are important to me: correct barrel markings and proper case colors.  Besides, building it is half the fun!   Grin

Yup....  Might just have to scratch that itch...

Since it has been rumor'd, I may have dallied with a "hacksaw" from time to time   Roll Eyes  I really like your "itch."  Twer it me dooin the scratching though,  I'd be whacking that barrel off right at the end of the Kirst Ejector assembly (Never a barrel too short).  That would be UBER Kool.

Carry it a yard or two further, I might just use an all Brass Trigger Guard/Back Strap with the Square trigger guard.  Just don't forget to start the whole project by checking and corrective action on the Barrel to Arbor fit.
