Thanks for all the compliments boys!
I was "single with toys" until 41. I sold most of the motorized stuff when I picked an appropriate lady, but the firearm collection was never on the chopping block ;)

You should see the "smokeless stuff" ::) I played IPSC and 3 Gun for a long time too ;D

Gee... looks like what I've always wanted to do if I won the lottery. 

Dang, now I'm all hot and need to go clean the fog from my glasses.

Leo

Actually there are two!
One is a patina/grey 32-20 that has some history and has a 20" bbl.
The other is a super nice 38-40 with factory Lyman beeches front sight and Lyman tang with target cup in the rear. The bore on it still was blue when I got it :o

My 3rd Generation Colt (Uberti) 1860


The 1860 again.


The "Twins".  Consecutively numbered Cimarron Richards Type IIs.  Both tuned by Steve's Guns.


#55.  Wish the cylinder engraving was as nice as their 1860 percussion cylinders.


#54.  Again, light roll engraving and over polished cylinder regardless of how nice the shiny bluing is.

Missing is my Armi San Marco 1851 brass frame bought in '89 when I was in college.  Pics soon to come.

Thanks Leo & Mason,

As promised here's the pic of my oldest c&b, the ASM 1851 "WTF" Griswold & Gunnison.  Where to even start?!?  To even start resembling anything accurate it should have a smooth cylinder for starters, and the next glaring error is the hexagonal barrel where a round one should have been replicated.  But... I think what really was the driving factor in this pistol was ASM trying to get a lower price point with CVA to sell to another type of buyer.  Meaning me, the starving college student where you decide "one for under $100, or the one over $100 dollars"?


ASM 1851 Brass Frame

Regardless.  I like it!  It's my first blackpowder firearm and I can't even begin to figure out how many round balls I've put through it!  Soon to go to Steve's Gunz for some action work.

This is my Uberti made in 1967, has the original G and G features you mentioned.  It needs an tuning too and I'm dead set on doing it at home.  Wish me luck.

Been a while since I was in these parts, saw this and decided I needed to add these:


My converted '51 Navies and rig


Smokin' it up with my opentops


Chokin' Jimmy Spurs with my '73  :D

Thanks!  After getting familiar with the 1860 I'm beginning to see the differences, read concessions, made for the Cimmaron RM Type II.  It's cylinder is virtually ginormous side by side to the standard 1860!
