 :)  Wowzers Dave   :D

That be right COOL.  I am of course, some partial to "Short" guns and all the better when you build 'em yourself!!!  Super Fine.

I had intended at one time, to Bob a pair of Walkers.  Right up until I picked one up.  Was like dragging a garbage can around.  Those sucker are some HEAVY.  Decided not to pursue it. 

I'm thinking again . . . . . . . .

That is one REALLY REALLY nice 1851.  I could even overcome my dislike of Uberti for that one.

Project guns of my 1862 J.H. Dance & Brothers Navy were a 1976 Uberti Colt 1851 Navy (grip and frame assemby) and a C.O.M. 1862 Griswold & Gunnison (round barrel assembly & plain cylinder).
These parts were mated together after a new arbor had been fitted to the Uberti frame.
The dia of the hole in the C.O.M. cylinder is just bigger than the central hole of the Uberti cylinder.

Thanks, Marshal Will Wingam.
I am at the receiver's end of the Dance.
This transformation was executed by my favorite Austrian smith.
Kudos to Karl Nedbal.

Another Uberti Colt 1851 Navy from 1970.
Transformed by the same Austrian smith last year into a Mississippi production 1862 Leech & Rigdon.
This job included the typical early pin & ball latch.

Thanks, MTB,
Had some talks with a leading Italian replica maker in Gardone, subsidiary of a leading global arms maker.
The management does not (any more?) seem to be interested in this kind of niche business.
