Stainz,

Thanks , i have seen the Lobo leather site, very nice.
Going to the gun show today to see if anything is available.

I remember you directing me to the 5 star site some time ago, this helped me value the trays and loaders, thanks again.

Glad your crystal ball worked well with the Nagants.

Hello friends and neighbors // 1908 Colt Bisley, .45 lc

This one is tight, with a decent bore and matching #.

All my revolvers are bottom shelf shooters but I enjoy them.

It's been a while since I posted pictures here. So I figured it was time:

This one was inspired by watching the first Indiana Jones movie. I don't know why, but the skull was handy, as was the bayonet.

Crystal Head Vodka (owned by Dan Akroyd)
S&W Double Action .44 (1881-1882)
Webley MK VI .45ACP (shaved cylinder) ca. 1918
Swiss 1914 Sawback Bayonet.

Smith & Wesson Revolvers chambered in Auto Calibers:

This is the latest part of the collection I'm going for. I've since added a Ruger SP101 in 9MM to the collection, but no pictures exist for it yet.
From top to Bottom: S&W 1917, S&W 610, and S&W 940. These are my auto chambered revolvers. The 940 is the only one I see with any kind of practical applications. The rest are fun to shoot and serve as something neat that I simply wanted.

The Smith & Wesson 940

This is my newest BUG which replaces my 640. Ammo pictured here is the Hornady 115 Grain XTP JHP.

Tinyg, I had a bayonet like that, a Swiss saw edge, my brother and I bought it at a surplus store for about $2.00. Unfortunately it was stored wrong for many years and the blade broke just below the hilt. They're quite rare and fetch a fine price now, mine was bought in the early 60's.

I purchased mine at a gunshow recently for damn near the price of a used Mauser. I'd seen them in pictures, but never in person. I snatched it up and gladly paid for it. What's nice is that it attaches to the Swiss 1911 Carbine as well as the K-31:


I think this bayonet was the reason Switzerland wasn't invaded. Not only could the Swiss stab you across a mountain valley, they'd leave a cord of wood cut and ready for use next to the body.

Here's an oldie but not-so-goodie, the Japanese Type 26:



Here's one of the S&W Victory model I used to own:


Here's one of the only Colt that I own, a Police Positive in .32 S&W Long:


Here's one of a Belgian Nagant that I have. This one was made in 1898 and was probably meant for the Russian commercial market:


When I used to do Cowboy Action Shooting, I used a pair of 1895 Nagant Revolvers and used .32 S&W Long in them. Not the fastest revolvers by any means, but I'd finish in the upper part of the middle with them:


Here's a picture of the Top Break Revolvers I used to have. Top to Bottom: S&W Double Action 44 in .44 Russian, the Iver Johnson in .32 S&W, and the S&W Single Action 2nd Model in .32 S&W.

Celebrating simply the fact that it was a Saturday afternoon - and I got OTD with change from two bills - here is my latest bullseye candidate:



Yeah, I'm not much for bullseye shooting. Sweet DA trigger - compared to my 1895 Nagants. Actually in decent shape - it's a .32 H&RM NEF R73. My 94-96gr LRNFP over 1.9gr Titegroup in .32 S&WL cases hits close enough to POA at 12 yd to drop the small metal rebounding steel plates - if you hit 'em high enough!

What can you get these days for less than $200 that still goes bang? Did I mention I had ~900 loaded .32 S&WLs left over from my prior .32 madness? ~1k+ empties, too - some 83gr DEWC, 100gr LDEWC & 115gr LRHFP .313" bullets left over, too... and I got more .32 dies...

Yeah, it's got to be my ugliest revolver... looks like it was made in a HS shop class...

What we have here is a J-Frame and other Size comparison between pistol caliber chambered revolvers. Upper Left: S&W 640 chambered in .357 Magnum, Upper Right: Ruger SP101 chambered in 9MM, Lower Left: S&W 940 chambered in 9MM, Lower Right: Taurus M380 chambered in .380 ACP




Here is one of the only K-Frame Revolver that I own, a well-used 10-5. I picked it up for 100 bucks and it's a sweet shooter.


Here's one of the Ruger SP101 chambered in 9MM. Very nice and easy to shoot.
