I had a Hubley Luger.   I am guessing the Dime Store in town had little turn over as i got it when I was seven in 1973.   It was a prop when my sister was in the sound of music.  It came back in pieces.   Grrrrr.

I've used home brewed Vinegaroon for many years. Vinegaroon is easy to brew, easy to apply, gives a rich black color and best of all, it will not bleed of on one's clothing.

A friend of mine had at least a dozen (probably more like two dozen) early double action Colts, which he very graciously allowed me to shoot.  All had very nice single action pulls.  All had equally bad double action pulls.  You could tell Colt really wasn't planning on anyone SHOOTING those things double action!

Getting ready to go and typing is slow, I'm give a better explanation when I get back but I scared the hell out of myself again, these last two trips probably scared me more than any other, some how the prospect of ending up in a wheel chair is scarier than the though of dying.  Some people do OK that way some it breaks their spirit, I fear I would be one of them.

Very interesting…..
The second gun for sale from the same estate is also a Bisley 7.5” barrel with with SN 20302 which would not be 100% USA.
So if purchased around the same time this may make some sense.
Still no explanation on why some guns have 6 digits.
They may be very early guns???
Just fill it to about an 1/8 inch from the top and compress it either with the bullet or so the bullet sits on the powder. I don't know how many grains it takes for a 357 but that method works for every other pistol caliber round with BP.

I’ve used the top two when I was dressed in my Span Am outfit. Nice .38 civilian Colts from the 1890s. Atrocious trigger pulls though.

I put a person who would do this in the same category as someone who would put Coke in his Makers Mark.  I am sure you would find him sitting in the middle of the road licking himself.
