    Sweet! Is it one you did or did it come to you in that condition? Because if it did, not only 'Sweet', but 'Damn!'

    Yours looks amazing!
    Someone decided they needed the barrel to be 6.5” on mine...

    Cool! Finding a western gun shipped after 1890 is difficult. Did they cut the barrel is it from a 78 double action?

    Got to sit with Dave yesterday at the Ohio Gun Collector's show and was able to see and handle this piece. It is a work of art. Looks almost like it when left the factory. He also had another 7 1/2" FSS built up on one of Clyde's frames that if I wasn't already buying another FSS from Dave could very well have made it's way home as well. ANd then he showed me some percussion Colts and a couple of Sharps rifles that...well let's say I'm still counting my teeth in the lower jaw to be sure I didn't lose any when it hit the floor. If any of you ever get the chance to visit the OGCA show you really need to stop by Dave's table and pass the time. Be forewarned it may get expensive, but his wealth of knowledge and his forbearance of us 'hobbyists' is well worth it.

    Thanks, Dave for the FSS, I'll post more about it in another post.

    I have a very nice original 5 1/2" SAA in 38WCF that was shipped to the Browning Brothers Shop in 1920.
    That one you showed is a beauty,
