Did you polish the 1860's you didn't show , yourself ?
Sure would like to see that sometime ? Sounds nice on a nice revolver to start with .

No Alabama, I bought it that way from another SASS member who got it from someone else.  The Bluing and case hardening was stripped off and the metal polished.  Even though it's 30+ years old, it is still very tight, locks up great, and shoots without a hitch or hiccup.

OK, here are some more of my collection.  Top to bottom:

Pair of F series 2nd Gen Colt 1861 Navies
Uberti 1860 Army (circa 1972) polished in the white
Uberti '49 Pocket model w/R&D 32 short 6 shot conversion cylinder
And a NIB commemorative - C Series 2nd Gen Colt Bicentennial 3rd Model Dragoon

Wow, those '61s are beautiful. Almost looks like an oil finish on the grips.

Your realize I am adoptable , if you need someone to " WILL " those revolvers to you know   
I promise I would take good care of your babies for you when your gone . 

I really really really like the pollished 1860 . Going to have to get another and do that to it , it looks mighty clean and sanitary like that , especially with Blued screws , nice touch .
The 61's are equally as admirable for sure . And of course I love Dragoons, so needless to say . Very nice collection you have , very nice . Thanks for sharing .


Alabama, I'll add your name to the list  ;D, but I think there are more names than guns  :o  I like the polished '60 also.  The picture kinda shows that it needs some touch-up.  The loading lever is looking kinda dull, and the barrel has som spots.  Glad you like the pictures.  They constitute less than half my collection though.

Riot,  It is an oil finish.  I bought them from Grat Masterson in GA.  He had gotten them a few years ago to use as Frontiersman, but I guess decided it wasnt for him.  They had been sittin in his gun safe gathering dust; so he offered them to me since I've been posting that I was looking for a pair to shoot.  He had done some work to the actions, installed Treso nipples, and stripped the varnish off the grips.  The oil finish isnt near as slippery as the varnish, and looks a whole lot better.  I'll be using them the rest of this season, then ship them off to get some American Holly grips installed like I have on my '
51 Navies and Uberti '61 Navies.

Love all the pistols, but it seems the long guns have been neglected. Hence, my humble contribution:

My Winchester 1885 high wall, 38-55, which has tasted nothing but the sweet black (check out the range box, too)

Thanks, Alabama!  She's kinda plain jane compared to some of the fancy, casehardened stuff you see around, but she's rock-solid tight and shoots as straight as they come.

I haveta say, Alabama, there ain't nothin plain jane about those great looking pistols you posted here.  Especially those grips--Man, they're Nice!  You ever shoot CAS in northern AL or Tenn?  Maybe I'll see your irons in person sometime.

Wow, between 'Bama and Fingers I think that we got just about them all covered.  Don't have any Starrs so far.  Sorry this is my only pic at the moment with it fully leathered, but will work on a naked Starr pic later.  Really like my bulldog as well.
