Here's my old Colt Army Special from 1926. This is the one is my favorite, and most often carried.

...and the Simply Rugged Sourdough Pancake w/ inside out straps that it rides in.

and a shot of it with the factory stocks.

I really love this thread. Really helps me feel better about some of the damage and wear on my revolvers.

There's just something about the look of a well worn, but cared for, revolver. I LOV'EM. I'd rather have an old K-Frame with the blueing worn off the edges, muzzle, and cylinder gap, than a brand new high polished pistol. Except for maybe a Python, I do covet one of those. (Everyone needs a Barbeque gun.)

Your wish is my command:

3" mod 36-1 heavy barrel. My understanding is that this model came to be at the request of NYPD firearms trainer Frank McGee. At any rate, I love it.

Deceased father in law's US Navy issued S&W Victory Model and accouterment. He was a Navy bomber pilot during WWII.




1947 Colt Detective Special...worn, reblued and worn again. Once issued by some unknown police department.

S&W and Iver Johnson .38 from the early 1900s

I've posted these puppies before, but since I love them so...thought I would do it again.

Top is my Model 2 Smith and Wesson top break, 5 shot, manufactured date about 1905. The weapon was carried by Van Wert County(Ohio) Sheriff Fred J Hott when he as in office from the1905-1910 era. This weapon is in excellent condition and after some research and opinions, I finally have started firing it...using Remington Center Fire 146 grain S&W ammo{about 150 rounds thus far}.

Bottom gun is a Iver Johnson .38, also top break, 5 shot, manufactured about 1900. This weapon was carried by the northern Indiana and Ohio outlaw Marvin Kuhns. Kunhs was dispatched{that would be shot dead} by Sheriff Hott and his posse' in June of 1907 in northern Van Wert County

This gun has not been fired for years(probably last by Kuhns) and although still in nice/fair condition, I would not trust it...but a historical keeper, none-the-less.
