Thanks!  Now I have a pair of Type IIs.  One 8" and one 5.5" for my main match pistols.

Keeping the 5.5", but selling the 8" and the custom Slim Jim from Possum Creek Leather.  Moving in an entirely different direction on main match guns. Lis.ted on SASS Wire

LOL, I have changed my mind, and not selling the Richards.  I can't imagine shooting anything other than a cartrsidge conversion with my 1860 Henry.

Ha, I did sell the 8", but kept the 5.5".  I am doing a couple Kirst 1858 conversions ( a Pale Rider and a gated) for a Cowboy Chronicle article. Yeah, I know, the Remingtons bust my knuckles, but they are Cartridge conversions.
