I still have to pollish and blue the parts. I shoot everything for quite awhile before I finish them up. I have put over 500rds in the one I guess I should pretty it up.
My ring is pretty much a copy of the ones you buy. I turned the back of the original cylinder off down to the ratchet. Then I bored the cylinders all the way through. This one is the 22lr so it was bushed and then chambered for 22lr. Some of the rings I have made a firing pin in the ring like this one. Because of the rimfire round. Others I put the pin in the hammer and the ring just has a hole.
The grips are the original ones sanded down just a bit. Then I apply a layer of snake skin on them followed by several coats of finish. It makes for a nice looking grip that works great, We shot in the rain and you get a good grip even when wet.
