Great photos of some great S&W revolvers!
Iver Johnson Automatic Safety Hammerless (2nd Model)
I just got this Sig P320 X5:
H.C. Lombard, Springfield Mass., Circa 1860, .22RF. Given to me as a Christmas present by a collector friend. Why? Because H.C. Lombard was my several-times Great Uncle!
Sorry if repost.....
.35 rem Super 14.
Easy open frame.
Yes, the rifle case makes an excellent elbow pad.
Here’s a not so great picture of my pistolas. I don’t have my 38 super in it though. Anyways, two are my m57 Toks, one is a “ honor guard “ chrome and one is a standard blued with a tribal Pakistani shoulder holster. Then we have my first pistol, a Bulgarian makorov.
Colt Police Positive Special in .32-20, circa 1910
Colt New Pocket, .32 Colt Long, circa.1904
Now that's really, really cool!
Would love to have a .32-20...don't know why, I just do!
Sweet little Colt New Pocket! Got to like those hard rubber, round butt grips!
these are my two favorites in my collection at the moment
Perfectly understandable as they would be the new favorites in my collection too!

Nice looking Colt Model 1909!
This started as a Hawes Western Marshal .45 made by J.P.Sauer & Sohn. I wanted a sidearm for hunting (as opposed to a hunting handgun.) I removed the ejector, shortened the barrel and re-crowned it at 3-1/2". I ground the ejector housing off the frame as was done on early Colt 'ejectorless' models, fabricated a new front sight from steel plate and mounted it in a position similar to the originals. I cut 'nail-nicks' in the back of the cylinder to allow easier extraction without using a rod. I lightly honed the chambers, and even the heaviest loads I use extract easily with a fingernail. I slicked the action a bit; but it really didn't need much. A friend does Cerakoting, and since hunting season is pretty wet here I had him do the barrel and grip-frame in Tactical Gray and the cylinder, cylinder pin and screw-heads in Tungsten. The gun is built on their .44 Magnum frame so it will take fairly hot loads in .45 Colt. I wouldn't run full-power 'Ruger Only' loads through it but +Ps are no problem. I load a 270gr Kieth bullet to about 900fps. from this gun. The result is an easy to pack, compact sidearm capable of dealing with any large predator I'm likely to encounter around here while hunting.
Very nicely done! I like your choices in Cerakote colors; makes the gun look very business-like! Grips are great too!
Three of my favorite. A recently purchased Freedom Arms model 97 in .44 special. A 1987 Smith and Wesson model 624, also in .44 Special and my all time favorite, a 1976 Colt Woodsman Sport.
Custom Avenging Angel built on an Uberti Richard-Mason Conversion replica, caliber .38 Special.
Nice custom 1911 and I love your Star collection! Use to have a Star Model B that I use to let beginner shooters use when they were transitioning from .22LR to 9mm.

My favorite 45.
Match grade bushing, link and slide to frame fit tightened. Beaver tail, trigger job and checkered front strap. Black tea finish on frame. Very accurate.
