Latest acquisition, blank cylinder Uberti L&R made in 2007.

Now have a pair of them. The other one is from 1977. Both of them get shipped off to the gunsmith to get 6 more bolt cuts on the cylinder, defarbed, and remarked like this original Augusta revolver from 1864.

Thats a very nice looking piece. Congrats.

The extra bolt notches were the safety notches on the Augusta models. They were patterned after the Manhattan revolvers.
