    Colt mod 1901 US Army 38 long colt project "COMPLETED"

    Crazy me I have now taken on a new project and will either end up with a decent collectable and possible shooter or a bunch of model 1901 parts to sell off to interested members . Hopefully with the help of the very valued members on this forum I will be able to move this project down the road for both our benefits.
    Interested members please look at the attached link and give me your comments on the item I won on gunbroker .You will be able to see the bag of parts I will be getting and hopefully members here will be able to tell me what parts are missing and possibly help in purchasing the missing parts . I may have a local smith who will help in assembly and timing if I get that far. If not I will gladly pay a fellow member a resonable fee to assist me in this project.As I stated above I may be crazy and await your comments on either my mental state or your help.

    Thanks Bullstone:

    Hi Bullstone;

    The "NRA Guide To Firearms Assembly" is your friend for such a project as that. I've been deep into a couple of those revolvers on occasion. Yeeh...!

    bullstone...that's not a project, it's a lifestyle!

    i got my exploded view of the new army & navy off of the gun parts (numrich) web site. just so you know, there are gunsmiths who claim to be qualified on these who are not, and by all accounts these are one of the trickiest 20th century revolvers to get working properly. i wouldn't attempt it myself, but that's just me.

    that said, the parts are probably worth more than you paid, and a well functioning new army & navy is a beautiful thing. good luck and keep us posted!

    Sure Bullstone;

    This one is the edition published in 1980 and the model is featured in pp. 316-317. Some helpful assembly hints are included which I found useful. Otherwise, detail stripping this model would have been beyond my capacity to figure out.

    1901 COLT ARMY project complete.

    Well friends I finally completed my 1901 project and am real happy with how it turned out. It is a tight as a new Colt and Jerry Johnson up in Churubusco Indiana did a great job on the timing. He is a very talented and reliable artist on these Colts and his turn around time was very swift. I truly recommend him for all your need .
    Now seeing I have only been collecting snubbie's I have to deside as to whether to keep it or sell it. I possibly will use it as a trade.Any one interested ???

    Best to all and thanks guys for the help: Bullstone
