    Got mine before the military!

    Sig P320, that is! The Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines are switching their Beretta pistols for the new M17 (full size) and M18 (compact) model P320s. I just traded for a new, in the box, Sig P320...

    If I had to choose, I would rather be hit by a .45 ACP round than an arrow with a broadhead arrowhead!

    Remove the tang sight. If it is a Model 1897 it will be marked on the top tang. Looks like a '97 to me. It was probably a special order gun with the pistol grip stock, the tang sight, folding front...

    If I remember correctly, the non recessed chambers were used in 1930-1932 with the recessed chambers appearing in 1934. I agree that the cylinder has been abused. Someone has dryfired it a good bit...

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't think I would be posting about a gun with no serial number (that should have one). Prior to 1968 there were lots of inexpensive guns (22 rifles, etc.) that were made...

    Assuming it is a .44 caliber revolver, it looks like it is (perhaps) a 3rd model Dragoon. The stud on each side is, indeed, there to provide a fastening point for a removeable wood stock. The cutouts...

    Nice, but the last year for the Army Special was 1927. After that it was sold as the Official Police. Same gun, different name!

    Sounds like if you want an SAA to take out of the safe occasionally to show off to friends or handle carefully while wearing gloves, then spend the money on a "real" Colt. On the other hand, if you...

    I would try them on a 2nd model Police Positive. They have a longer, more slender grip. Good luck!

    Did it work in both DA and SA? I have seen a couple of 1877 Colts that were converted to .22 but they only worked in the SA mode!

    It looks like .22 rimfire conversions are popping out of the woodwork all over! I like the patina on your gun that gives it the "been used a lot" look. Several years ago I bought a Colt Lightning...

    That's nice! Those grips really bring it to life! Here's one that I bought in 1972 equipped with stags and micro sights. It is a convertible with the 22 mag cylinder. I think the out the door price...

    Colt Medium Frame Lightning

    A friend of mine has fallen heir to a Colt Lightning medium frame rifle in caliber 38-40. It appears to be a standard rifle with an approximately 25 inch long round barrel. The finish is about 10% or...

    Not quite an SAA, but this is a Model 1877 "Lightning" that California gunsmith George Matthews converted from 38 Colt to 22 R/F in 1953. The gun was originally made in 1883. The conversion involved...

    Went shooting for a while this morning. I took a .22lr target pistol, a G34 Glock and a Kimber Micro 9 along. After shooting the two bigger guns, I pulled out the Micro 9 and tried a variety of 9mm...
