I won one of these in .45 at the NE Regional in Thurmont years ago. The best grip design ever. They look sooo good too. Thought about getting a second but never did. Love your Avenging Angel conversion TL.

Quite fond of my Cimarron Lightning in .38 Long Colt.

Sweet!  Both of them.  I had a Cimarron Thunderer in .44 WCF for a bit.  I really liked it, but all my other pistols were .45!  If I had it in .45, I may have kept it!  I did a Cowboy Chronicle Article on it about three or four years ago.  One of the 3/4 frame sized Lightening in .38 would be gnarly also!

Sweetest shootin' little gun I own. I've been thinking about it as a carry gun, and trading in the .380.

This one is a sweet little shooter- a S&W .38 Single Action (2nd Model.) Barrel's bobbed and crowned, new stag grips and front sight. This target was shot at a 'brisk pace' at seven yards... there's always got to be a flier... :P



Going to strip the nickel and rust blue it; it ought to look great with the black and antler contrasting...

Tinker, did you ever get the magazine that I sent you with the bulldog article?
