Schofield paired with my .45 Cal. 5.5" 1872 Open Top to replicate Rafe's pair in Crossfire trail.

Well, I swapped out the 5.5" Schofield cylinder for a new .45 Colt one from VTI, so I was happy with that. However, I just never did like the fit and feel of the fat faux ivory grips in the 1851 frame on the 5.5".  The grips never fit the frame right, and compared to the 7.5" with its 1860 Army grip, just felt wrong.  One of the thinks I prefer the OTs and conversions for is the 1860 grip.  Contacted Lisa at VTI and got the last complete 1860 grip frame set they had.  Came yesterday, so I put it on this morning.  Now they both feel the same in the hand.

Went from this:



To this:



On another note, the 5.5's previous owner, besides botching the grips up, had replaced the hammer spring with aq really light one.  The feel was totally different from the 7.5, and gave light strikes.  I had a factory one in my spare parts box that I popped in, and now the hammer pull on both is the same.

Nice find. Congrats on that. I like the military version but it would depend on what you need to fill in your collection. The military bail wire hanger could also be made from fill rod from the local welding shop.

Just bend one out of a thick coat hanger or drill rod.

Scouts Out!

I'm a bad person again, Lincoln History groups, there is a bunch get mad when you point out it takes money to save and restore old buildings they get upset.  And to point out that for a private person or group to do it they have to be greedy capitalists or tax payers have to pay for it.

Anyone want to buy a 1920's Dept store, 2.5 million, state quit leasing it do to black mold or so the rumor is.   Unknown how much asbestos is in it.   They laughingly suggesting some of them form a group to save it, offering to donate a couple loaves of my famous homemade bread did not go over well, so they are on their own ;D.

Hard to go wrong with a 5 dollar holster. I have one of my grandfather's old swivel service holsters.

Had someone want me to make them a holster for their favorite gun. He wanted the holster in a basketweave design with a strap and in Saddle Tan color. I decided to fully suede line the holster also.

Anyone else think this looks like bacteria in a petri dish?

No, that's an insult to bacteria. ::)
