Since it has been rumor'd, I may have dallied with a "hacksaw" from time to time   ::)  I really like your "itch."  Twer it me dooin the scratching though,  I'd be whacking that barrel off right at the end of the Kirst Ejector assembly (Never a barrel too short).  That would be UBER Kool.

Carry it a yard or two further, I might just use an all Brass Trigger Guard/Back Strap with the Square trigger guard.  Just don't forget to start the whole project by checking and corrective action on the Barrel to Arbor fit.

I set up an ImageShack account as soon as Photobucket did their dirty deed ... of course, I can only do links from there as i write new posts, but if any of my old posts which had Photobucket links get resurrected showing the "big gray blotch" (good description, Major!) I will usually move the photos to ImageShack and edit the post with the new links ...

I had hundreds of images documented through Photobucket. When they decided they could put the squeeze on their loyal clientele, I removed them all and deleted as much account info as I could.

Have not tried to find a free substitute site yet, as I feel most will take Photobucket's lead and figure out they can add a revenue stream by doing the same.

Hence I've not posted images here or on other sites like I was wont to do.

Oh well . . .

Fortunately, I had few photo's on the "BUCKET"...and I lost but a few, but I know many lost many memories.

I use Disks & memory sticks from My Computer files...for the very reason RCJ states

It is odd to hear some of you speaking about "losing" images due to the change in Photobucket policy, because all images previously uploaded to Photobucket should still be there and entirely accessible by the account owner.  Their new policy just automatically prevents "hot linking" any of those images into a posting on any other internet site unless you agree to pay their exhorbitant fees to upgrade to the new "Highway Robbery" account.  I have left all my Photobucket images in place, but if I now want to put any image into an online posting (or if I want mages in earlier postings to re-appear in those postings) I put them up in my ImageShack account, from which they CAN be hot-linked ... Although it is not a "free" service, the subscription rates are only a small fraction of the ridiculous charge Photobucket demands for that privilege.  (I tried to find another "free" image-hosting service which permits hot-linking, but couldn't find anything suitable for my needs.)

If my photo's were small enough, I could post them directly from my photo library on my computer.  Since mine are all over the mandated 400 size, I are out of luck.

Yes, the ability to resize images is basic to any imaging/image processing program or software. So is the ability to crop images, although it is clear that many people don’t know that either ... judging from the number of photos posted of a gun laying on the floor with the person’s feet ... or a pet ... or a bag of trash ... also in the photo!

Here is s simple fix (stumbled upon quite by accident) take the pics with yr phone - email it to yrself so ya got it on the computer - in that process the image is resized - still good enough (just!) to print at A4 size - dunno how they do this ? I have attached three to a single post and it went ahead ok - there would be better ways fr sure and it does nothing for images you already have stored -

Ive had this for quite a while, but I didnt think to show it off until now.  Its an 1851 Navy frontier style conversion in .38 Long Colt. It has had the barrel lined and defarbed, an “improved” loading port, the loading lever stud removed, and post added on the loading gate. Its pictured with some old American and Mexican coins, a cheroot, and gun leather. The lined, carved, stamped, and spotted holster was made by Allan Byrne in Pine Colorado and the belt is a cheap hunter brand 38/357 model; I have Allan currently working on a belt to match the holster.

Comparing three different 1851s (top down):
# Hartford-London Navy from 1855
# Italian Uberti made Navy 1:2.125 scale (same steel as the replicas: fully functional but non firing)
# Japanese Ohba made Navy 1:4 scale (made of blued silver: fully functional but non firing).

Scrolling through this thread to again admire the various revolvers posted here (... including, back on about page 2 or 3, my original Canadian Government purchaae London Navy and the reproduction London Navy I also have ...) it occurred to me tht there are few, if any. photo of owners actully shooting their revolvers.  I did ensure that my original is fully functional, with a set of replacement nipples ... although the rather battered originals have been carefully preserved, of course ... and I have fired it.  Wouldn't want to make a habit of it ... and, of course, that is what the reprocuction is for. 

Anyway, here is a snap of me firing the original ... 



Who else has photos of their originals in action?
