    i like them all. *puts on flamesuit* although the gold plated/engraved ones are abit gaudy for me. but im a functionalist (just look in my gun safe to guess that, you'll find mostly russian/communist bloc milsurps known for being butt-ugly but working no matter what)

    I finally got a picture of all of the bp guns. The Walker on the top right is a new one I just got today, A Colt signature series,, the one on the left is a Uberti copy. For some reason I just had to have a Colt.

    Hey!

    You guys with the home made cases got any plans available or tips on such things as getting the felt to stick to the dividers?

    I notice some use mortice type joints and others seem to just but joints with 45 degree cuts. Among the last group do you use nails screrws or fish to make the joint solid?

    Glue & Joints

    In reply to what kind of glue that I use on felt and also to velvet, or satin when lining the cases that I make for my pistols. I use a glue called Tacky Glue that is found in Hobby stores. There is a hobby store in my area called Michials, and it can be found at the fabrick stores called Johann Fabricks. It is a tacky glue that sticks to what ever you are gluing, and can be moved around for a few minuts before it dries perminantly. It dries clear. About the joints, I always use finger, or box joints, but some prefer other kinds of joints, such as a 45% angle with a spline cut across the joint. Instructions for making wood joints can be found at any woodworking Store, such as Woodcraft. Making these boxes is time consuming, but very rewarding. Perhaps some of the other box makers on this forum use other types of glue and joints.
    I swore that I would not make any more cases after I had built cases for my Black Powder Colt collection, but I am in the process of building some cases for my modern S&W revolvers. Can't leave it alone I guess.

    Why do those 1860s look like they have 1851 grips on them? Is it something with the ivory grips and not the wood?

    Nope not an illusion they come with the '51 Navy grip on um...a grip I prefer to the larger 1860 Army grip...I would call um Wild Bill Hickok model 1860 Colts.
    I have swapped out grips with Navy and Army Colts before and was pleased to find Pietta was cool enough to make these fancy ones this way. They jus' feel more balanced probly why the the 51 Navy is a better point shooter., and feels more balanced...That's just in my opinion not fact.

    Are you sure it's 3rd Generation? It's hard to see, but it doesn't look like the silver signed backstrap.

    With a closer look I see it's not a 2nd gen. "Colts Patent" on left side of frame, serial #'s slightly different location, lettering is stamped much deeper than my 2nd gen.
    When did Colt start lettering 3rd gens? I was under the impression that they only lettered 1st and 2nd generation.
    As far as the silver signed backstrap goes, I know a very few 3rd gen models did not have the signature on the backstrap. even though they are called "Signature Series"
