    This is the second installment of my video series about modifying the Pietta 1851 revolver. In this segment we'll make some changes to the Pietta 1851 Navy revolver to improve its reliability. We'll fill in the safety slot on the hammer face. We will istall after-market nipples and we will smooth up the action.

    Great video, although you STILL have trouble with TRESO. You pronounce it differently almost every time. :eek:

    Thanks Mike, I sure wish you'd catch the 62 Colt Police virus.
    I'm also glad you mentioned how approachable TOW is I found them very helpful.
