Retaining the loading lever is a nice touch.  Very distinctive. 

Is there enough left to actually use?

Queasy,

Ah ...... well ...... No.  Strictly there for appearance.  Only way to effective load any of the Snubbies, including mine, is a Cylinder Loading
Stand.  I like a little Flash and Bling and I thought including the Loading Lever Stub on a '51 frame was just ........ KOOL!!

My gratitude to Major 2 for posting my guns.  I don't Post Pictures well.  Will, OK ....... at all  Angry

Perfection then ... The original (shown ) is Californio influenced, it belonged to Captain B F Schaeffer and housed the engraved 51 he carried.
Dennis Adler suggested to Pietta to produce the 1851 Navy Colt replica's of Captain Schaeffer  ....
The original gun & holster together sold at auction for $ 6900  

I commissioned the holster to my specifications, and it was carried to the next level by a very talented leather smith...
I'll leave it to him to chime in as I do not believe he does his fine work commercially.  Undecided

Texas was actually Mexico until about 1832!  And, though I'm not Mexican, I've played one before...

Going to try this a different way, now that Photobucket made my life slightly more difficult.

Update
Well Duh!  I thought Major 2 had a real spiffy gun.   So, double post on my apart because my brain is only partially functional today.

I wish we has 'Like' buttons on this forum... so many cool guns in this thread! I've done a few snubbies strictly as a hobby. Started when a Buddy said, "I've got a couple Remingtons and would love to have one turned into a snubby..."

"As it happens," I said, "You know someone that can do that..." We jawed it over for awhile and he sent two 1858s, one for him and one for my by way of payment. This was the result, which I call Pug:


I had previously done over my Richards-Mason .38 Special from Cimarron- bobbed and re-crwned the barrel, cut the frame and brazed on new brass to form the birds-head. Maybe my favorite revolver- the Shopkeeper:


Someone on the internet saw some of my work and sent me an old 1851/.44 Pietta they had lying around 'just to see what I'd do with it.' I did this- modified barrel to reflect the style of original Avenging Angels but left it at 3-1/2", changed the profile of the grip to be closer to an 1848 Pocket and added a gated Kirst Konverter in .45 Colt. It's a sweet shooter I call The Outlaw-


Several other projects in the works, which I have been requested to keep y'all up to date on, so expect to see some more examples of my poor impulse control soon...  Grin

May I beg your indulgence for one more of mine ?  

they are like 'tater chip's can't have just one ....

Tinker  
I really like your 3-1/2" , I too reworked the Grip tail on this Pietta pictured .... your version's barrel profile is very cool.
Sadly mine , the one below, now fills another's holster.... unknown to me.
It was a gift to my late friend Texas Law Dog, where it might be now  Cry

Lord MacKenzie,

Depends (no .... not the diapers).  If your looking for Birds Head or Thunderer (there is some GREAT confusion) for Uberti 51s, you can often get pre-fitted (metal and wood) "sets" from VTI GUNPARTS and perhaps Cimarron.   If your looking for Pietta, you will probably have to trade for them.  I have not seen complete sets on offer.

When you try to buy, insure you ask for the correct item.  A "Birds Head" Gripset has a constant Radius to the Back Strap with no "hump."  A Thunderer Gripset begins at the top with a very prominent protrusion ala the original Colt Thunderer that provides a tasty rest for the web of the thumb.  There has been a great and very annoying tendency for folks to call the "Thunderer" a Birds Head.  They are quite different.  Where was I ......... oh yes ..... I rememberer ....... For the most part, Thunderer pattern grips for Pietta are on someone else's gun.  Trade and Barter.
