3000 total..... 1000 in the container, 2000 in 100 round bags.

$1000 shipped CONUS. Don't care to split up at this time....

Thanks, Rube. Glad to be of help. The buckles were made by a guy in Central CA. He's no longer making them, though. I just keep making new belts for them. Last I heard he was getting some serious surgery and have no idea how that went for him.

A few of us got our gear out and did an impromptu movie a few years ago. All lines and locations were not rehearsed and no plot was considered before the camera started. Editing came by the camera owner and his hobby ability’s. We had fun with real guns and got to use our out fits other then matches. I’m the ruggedly handsome guy with a beard! ;D

Working on it. 

Swap out the springs, put a Bullseye ejector on it, and it'll be field ready.  (I put Bullseye ejectors on everything, just like them)

Excellent.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  At least, for the frame colors.  ;D

SAA, 4 3/4" .45.  New production, S90xxxA.  Smooth cycling, perfectly timed.  No "grit" clean break around 4 lbs.  All blueing dark, smooth and even. Very dark pack hardening compared to my other two SAAs (1995, 2005)  but lovely to look at, flowing deep shades of blue, some gray with a hint of orange.  Disassembled, no burs, interior looks well finished.  Nice square edges on the front sight, previous ones had been rounded by overpolishing.    Tight barrel cylinder gap, very even, no endshake.   Loading gate very well fitted,  flush with the recoil shield, cannot feel the seam running my thumb over the upper closure.  Excellent fit on the cylinder bushing, no perceptible wiggle, yet slides out under gravity alone.

One end of the base pin retainer latch appears polished in the white?  Screws appear nicely blued. No "dishing" around the holes from too much pressure on the polishing wheel.  Grip frame fit is seamless, black rubber eagle grips well fitted,  but thick of the frame, all my Colts are like this.  Fits my hand as is.

 VERY heavy mainspring, that will be replaced, I put Lee Fisher "Gunslinger" springs in all my SAAs. (I swear, Colt still uses the Military spec spring for the original Martin and Benet primers)  Should take some weight off the trigger.  Chamber ball seats mike right at .455.

Hope to get a range report soon, but very pleased with this.  Paid a bit over MSRP to get it, but decided not to wait for the market to shake out.  This gives me one of each principle barrel lengths. ( 7.5" 5.5" 4.75")

I apply the dye with a 1" to 1-1/2" square of sponge. I put it on quickly and thick, going over it a couple times to get it even. I don't bother with circular motions since that just slows things down.

Practice on a scrap to see if the color is what you're looking for. Don't be shy on the alcohol. This one was done with probably +-4 parts alcohol to one part dye. If it's too light, you can do another application to darken it after it's dry. Yeah, it's another BW belt but it gives a good color comparison.

Nice Buckles on those two belts. Good tips on the coloring also.

It would be fun to do but it would mean sending a Dragoon off to someplace like Turnbull to shorten the frame and cylinder. BUT! You'd really have something when it was done. It would still probably be cheaper than finding a real one and you'd not be afraid of ruining it by shooting it.

It would for sure be cheaper than an original. Not sure what someone like Turnbull would charge for something like that but it would not be cheap itself.
