    Thatís a 4 3/4 Brill. Seems like it rides a bit high from where the trigger guard sets, but itís actually snug and fills out the shape of the 4 3/4 revolver just right.

    That makes sense then, if the old man was looking to see if his cylinder would rotate with the ammo - the man was EXTRA careful in that case.

    Seems like sixguns were key in the tactics of Indian fighting, at least in Texas where they learned that fighting dismounted against mounted and agile Comanches was a losing situation. The sixgun...

  11. First Gen rubber / gutta percha grip preservation - shoot with em?

    Pards,

    With an old 1st gen, do you shoot them with the original (black hard rubber / gutta percha) grips on them, or would it be a good idea to remove and get some shooing grips sized?

    Yeager was fairly popular back in his time - did some nice work on mausers and Sako rifles. I had a Sako rifle Yeager had done some work on - fantastic rifle.

    Wow, I really like those grips!

    Engraving looks pretty neat to me - I like the Indian head at the base of the hammer. Very cool piece, especially it being something handed down in the family.
