I've looked at his stuff and am IMPRESSED! I guess I should contact him but I ass(umed) I'd be looking at a ridiculous long wait time and was hoping there might be some quality but less back logged 'smiths about.

Thanks for your reply. The family gets down to Orlando about every other month for Universal trips.

Doesn't seem all that long ago that I brought up the same subject!  Still, it is always worth rethinking, and that is what I have done.  I'm going to stick to my original decision.
As before, I have two favorites… a 7&1/2" nickel plated .45 with premium walnut grips and a 4&3/4" nickel plated .45 with factory elephant ivory grips and a personalized serial number.
If my life depended on it, I would go with the 7&1/2" simply because it is one of the most accurate SAA's I have ever owned (and I bought my first one, a Colt, in 1967).  With it you can easily shoot 2" groups at 25 years, off hand, all day long.
The 4&3/4, while not quite as accurate, due no doubt to the shorter barrel, is plenty accurate enough at 25 yards.  The personalized serial number, SPD2566, reflects the initials of the police department on which I proudly served for over 25 years and my department serial number.  I had a special presentation case made for it along with a self made, custom USFA label (I scanned and altered one of the USFA labels found in their boxes) indicating that it is a special order gun commemorating my time in service.  Printed it out on parchment paper and attached it to the lid of the presentation case.
So… I would go with the 4&3/4.  50 years from now nobody will care about how accurate that 7&1/2" USFA was but maybe, just maybe, one of my heirs, the children of my children, will look at that 4&3/4" and think about me and where they came from.  That is what I do every time I sign on here in the name of my great-grandfather Capt. John Fitzgerald.

I have a pair of Taylors engraved. Old Top likes to call them my scratched up guns. The Taylors are photo/lazer engraved. ythen they were chased by hand to make them look more real. These have been my main match guns for about 10 years

also enclosing a shor of emf engraved GW2. they look very much like the original GW's owned by JohnWayne and used in the Shootist

they are both great shooters

questions? fire away

M2, I know that you will get a lot of enjoyment out of the new rifle. I should be getting my old colt 22 revolver soon, and my antique 38 S&W ammo too. Moose brought Chinese takeout home for supper, but my stomach felt queezy and I did not eat it. I'll save it for lunch tomorrow. I am till in the running on the Colt Police Positive 32-20 revolver, I should know next week.

I'm interested in a couple things and I'm hoping to roll them into one project but not sure who to talk to about making it happen.

I am interested in getting a Blackhawk for hunting. I've never hunted with a revolver so it'll be a new experience for sure.

I am also enamored with the movie prop Buntline that Kurt Russell used in Tombstone. Now I know that they are available through Cimmaron, but as I understand it, 45LC hunting power loads should only really be used in BH frames due to the pressures/stresses. So I want to get a BH in 45LC with a 10" barrel but the longest they come in is 7.5". I could get a SBH that does actually come in 10.5" but I don't want 44mag, even though I know it opens up availability on hunting rounds.

So my question is, who do I turn to to have a 10-10.5" barrel put on a 45lc Blackhawk? I'm hoping for a fairly quick turn around, I'm not looking for an action job or any other 'smithing touches other than the rebarrel.

I would've asked Ruger but since they don't have a custom shop I'm figuring third party Smithis my only way to go.

I'm in north Florida, just south of Jacksonville in St Augustine, if that helps anyone point me towards a local.

Thanks, everyone!

Dusty good to see you shooting again. I always like to see your post on 76's here and over at lever guns forum.

I'm with Philip.. I need to think on it awhile. As hard as Picking a favorite kid and not changing my mind about it later..
In the meantime, Tim's gun up top there is a good choice.   It came that way.  I believe all of the USFA catalog Sears gun photos are of that specific gun too,  - not a different gun of the same model.

I wiuld probably like to cull theough Pangea's pile to really be sure of a favorite.   Smiley

I always wanted one of the Bee's myself, but wouldn't turn that one down either.
