A pair with numbers in sequence pretty neat

I just don't have the patience for cap'n'ball but have been tempted a few times to snag one of those and put a Kirst Konverter in it.  They sure look great!

I had one # 36 in the first run... a beauty too!
  Well, as it sometimes happens, something comes along your interests and passions deviate and perhaps you do something you might later regret.  :-\
Such was the case, I traded mine off .... I'm sure at the time I was quite down with and content with the trade...
I don't recall what it was I traded for,  ::)  and in way I wish I had the Capt. Schaffer back.


here is thread back then https://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php/topic,57433.msg693713.html#msg693713

USFA CSS / Re: USPtFA guns.
« Last post by Stormy and Moose on Today at 06:16:57 PM »
Very nice!  Turnbull wasn't too expensive back then.  Even in the early 2000's, the dealer price for CCH was $50 each with a minimum of 4 frames/hammers sent in (already disassembled and barrel removed, of course).  I took advantage of that when I was working for a dealer who was sending some frames to Turnbull, so I just added my two conversion frames to the order and got them both done for $100!
wow wish I had known you back then! I lost perspective on sending turnbull clean/new parts and just doing CCH and CB. All my projects required lots of prep and stamping and engraving etc.

this one cost me $1700 - after seeing and handling and closely inspecting I could not resist. It's all italian and all Turnbull. I'm having a Colt US artillery being restored by him and all this gun needs is a US stamped frame and a few more inspector stamps to be a really excellent replica imho.

RRio very nice guns - can you please tell us the serial number range on your 2 USPtFA's?
I recently purchased this USPtFA and it is P 13800. The attention to detail on these early USPt's is incredible with flawless Turnbull finishing. With as little as these guns cost new and knowing what Turnbull charged back then in the '90's I can't believe there was much profit?  I am mainly a lifelong Colt collector but I own several USPtFA and USFA guns that easily hold their own against original Colts imho.

this is my first post  - we recently retired and I have time to pursue my interests now.
I'm also not sure at all how to post pictures but there should be 4 pics attached if I followed the instructions correctly?  the 'preview' option is not functioning for me so I will have to just try and post this and not look like a fool

The 7 1/2" .45 is: P  0103XX     and the 4 3/4" .357 is P 126XXX
What kind of prices are the USPt.FAs going for now?
