    Hello from Portland, Oregon

    Long time reader, first time poster. A few years back, I inherited an 1892 Colt New Army that has been in the family since at least 1926: one of my great-grandfathers inherited it from a great (x2) uncle that passed away that year. Every subsequent generation, including mine, laid waste to countless tin cans and Coke bottles with this gun. Thanks to the forum, I determined it missed out on the modifications made at Springfield Armory to the 1892 and subsequent New Army variants. The grips: my grandfather replaced the original wood grips with hard rubber grips in the 1930s. A collective 'thanks' for helping me learn more about this gun!

    “It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
