That is a super collection tommix. I'm not sure if I'm more impressed with the revolvers or the boxes. You have a couple of boxes that I have never seen. Bob

Wow. I guess that we now know where all the nice New Services have gone to. Tommix has them all! /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

An outstanding collection. Thanks for the post.

Maybe one of the best DA Colt revolver collections I've seen on any internet site.One would have to go to the Wanamacher show in Tulsa to see this amount of fine stuff in one single persons collection.Keep on posting pics.I'll bet you got some nice stuff in other kinds of Colts.

Yep. Awesome. Can you shoot a close-up picture of the "King" sights? The front sight is actually a Roper and I suspect the rear sight is as well. Also, I maintain a research database on Shooting Masters and would like to have more detailed information about yours if possible. Please email me offline if you are willing to share some more data.
Thanks,
Kevin Williams

Very impressive! No wonder I can't find any really nice classic Colts. You've got all of them! Great job. I'm sure it's taken a lot of time, effort and other important resources to put this collection together. I have a long way to go to catch up...

Thanks,
