    I was walking past my Pietta New Model Army .44 with a hacksaw one day and suddenly my barrel fell off. All I remember is a flurry of filing and the next thing I know is I had this lying on my bench:

    Cheers, everyone. I wouldn't say it's a tack driver but ... you know ... you wouldn't want to be at the wrong end of it at 25 yards.

    Nice looking pistol. You may be able to add it to your conceal carry rotation.

    Beautiful work! That's a great example of how it should be done.

    I'm not a huge fan of the snubbies in general but yours looks pretty good and it looks like you did a great job.

    Not in the UK - well, not for self defence, anyhow. It's perfectly legal to pop it in a shoulder holster in order to ride to the range as we are required to keep firearms covered when in transit. But carrying a firearm about in public for anything other than going to the range, hunting, returning, or taking it for repair or selling... that's an automatic five year stretch in prison.

    Can you chrono that little beauty? And here's a toast from Arizona that somehow you get your rights back.

    I've not access to fancy equipment like that.
    It's got a four and three quarter inch (muzzle to forcing cone) barrel so it'll be akin to whatever the Remington Sheriff shoves out with an equivalent load. Quicker than someone could run, that's for sure. :)
