Colt Display For The Next Gun Show
« on: July 05, 2019, 01:55:50 PM »


I don't think people realize how many Colt long guns were made in different variations. Although some are quite rare, Colt certainly had an impact on the Frontier other than just pistols. Here is a display I built to show the Colt guns...

I never considered myself a failure...I started out at the bottom and happen to like it here!

Great job, Shrapnel!

Do you have any close-up views with the descriptions?

Have you devised a way to run a flexible security cable thru the trigger guards??

Thanks, Shrapnel.  I can read a fair amount of them.  I have that Peacemakers book by R.L. Wilson, my nicest coffee table book.  So, are you waiting to see if anyone comments on that "Burgess" ?   ;)

It is a Winchester 73 SRC filling in until I get my Burgess back...
