Well, this is just beautiful stuff here, what can I say. They have a nice display this week but a couple of things caught my eye.

This single shot break open in .454 Casull is an amazing piece of work. Operating the lever to break it open is like watching a Swiss watch work. One comment I heard was that it opened and closed like a bank vault. The lockup was rock solid with no movement. Really nice firearm. I did not get a price but I will work on that.

More from Freedom Arms. Nice stainless in .454 Casull.

Little smaller model in .454 Casull. The rounded butt is nice looking but I'm afraid it might be a little brutal in the big caliber.

if I've EVER wanted a single shot gun, this would be it.

Add a box below the hinge and color it bronze - it's Mal's gun from Firefly!
Actually looks very nifty. Looks like the one revolver in the middle got some trigger time the day before with no cleaning, or a I seeing that wrong?

It does appear to be kind of dirty. Maybe the booths with the cleaning products are at the other end of the expo center.

Lots of dirty fingers handling things this week that's for sure :)

Otis has a nice booth but no one leaves once they get there... free beer.

I wonder what the retail will be on that single shot. I would hope it would be under $1,500, since it's nowhere near as complex as a revolver to make.

I wonder what the retail will be on that single shot.

The sheet they handed me says $1495 so you are right on. Found the datasheet buried in a backpack :)

That was before any options. I believe spare barrels in different calibers were $495 but I don't have the data sheet in front of me.

That single shot pistol looks almost like a heavily modified Thompson Center, I really like the heavy looking receiver. I think it makes the pistol look more durable, like its for someone who's going to us it a lot.
