I have thought about doing this for a while.
Over on "The High Road" there are OFFICIAL threads for the different models so I am going to do the same thing here.
Many of us like to show off our pistols and this will give us a place to do so w/o "hijacking" our pards threads Wink

Rules are simple with "no axe grinding" taking precedence, followed by "stick to the topic" (no other models posted, please), then if you want to stray off topic, please search for like posts and/or start one of your own.........

Thanks, HH

Well, I'd post some pictures; but they've apparently changed Photobucket and I can't get anything to work on it.

Yep, Photobucket has really changed and I'm to lazy to read the directions.  Hope this works.  On the top is a Pietta with steel backstrap and trigger guard that I shortened to 6 inches.  On the bottom is a Colt.

Nice Larsen!

It's always great to see originals do you shoot this one?

Haven't shot this one.  Back in 1961 when the Civil War Centennial started we shot a lot of originals as there weren't that many reproductions around yet.

Nice Fingers!

I am on the lookout for a 2nd Gen Colt 1861 for a conversion project.
If anyone knows of a used one for sale, let me know!

Cool!

Looks like a Pietta with a "Legal Defender" ring and a cut off "sheriff" fluted cylinder.
Am I close?

It is a Pietta, and I'm pretty sure the cylinder has bee turned down at the crown, not sure of the ring, but it was a professional job of converting. Cylinder is chamber bored for .38 Spec., but the barrel is still .375, so I use home loaded BP rounds with 148 gr. hollow based wad-cutters. No problems.  Wink

This pistol was a FREEBIE Grin
Of course it looked like a freebie also......I'm not sure the previous owner (who was a friend) had any idea that you need to clean a BP pistol after firing or they will rust!

I used a Kirst ring and the cut off fluted cylinder and then left the rammer off and filled the latch dovetail for the "gunsmith conversion" look.

A couple of Cimarron's 1861's.  
This one was at Shot Show when I snapped a pic.  I think the grips are Tru-Ivory:


I've posted pics of this one a few years ago.  I happened to be at Cimarron when this one arrived from Uberti.  Besides being a beautiful pistol, the noteworthy thing about this is that it is a miniature!  With nothing else in the pics to give a frame of reference, you wouldn't know it!

Here is my pair of 1861s.  Bought years ago to replace a pair of originals I had been using.  A collector wanted the originals more than I did so I used some of the money to by these Ubertis.



These, although not fired of late, remain my favorite revovlers.

I'm purchasing an all steel 61 conversion with a 5 1/2 in barrel, that I think one of y'all did.
I haven't seen it, but I trust the "old Coot" that I'm buying it from.
Might anyone fess up , and show any pictures?

Like, does it have a ring that folds out for loading, does it have an R&D drop in?
loading lever, or ejector?

Proud new owner and of course I couldn't leave em alone. Cut a nice .080" U notch sight in the hammer. I polished the internals, put in a wire bolt/hammer spring and some SlixShot nips. (Now) I found a lighter main spring that still busts caps. I reshaped the end of the rammer for balls. I removed the painted on stock finish and refinished in oil.
Picture was shot with a Sony Camera set on Toy creative mode. It's supposed to mimic cheap throw away plastic lens kids cameras. Well, maybe. I like the effect for classic guns.
