Still learning the ropes with IMGUR. Thought I'd post a few SAA photos while I adjust. Hope you don't mind.

3rd gen .44 (top), 1st gen .38. It was redone by Eddie Janis with a 2nd gen .38 Special barrel & cylinder. My beater for shooting


Closeup of the .38. Build date is 1901

That first gen 38 spl is no beater. Do you know the original caliber?:cool:
It letters as a .38-40, 4.75" barrel, blue/CC. It's scheduled to go under the knife again...I bought a minty 5.5" barrel from Dave Lanara, marked "38 COLT". I'm having Alan Harton in Houston fit the barrel and a set of very nice Colt stocks to it, along with touching up the trigger a bit. It'll then look "correct". Not really crazy about a 7.5" barrel on a .38 Special anyway.

I'll post photos when Alan's done with it.
