    She's one slick shooter. The lucky owner is TAURUSBOB, once I saw this I had to show it off for him. The jeweled chamber is just a hint of what's inside ;)

    Is it a looker or a shooter? I would hate to think what would happen to the chamber/ barrel tooling if it is fired.

    Jeweling is functional, in that it retains lubricant in those little swirls.

    Agreed!


    For how long would be the better question. I've got a couple rifles with jeweled bolts. They've developed some rub marks over the jeweling over the years. It won't take long for a pistol surpass the round count that my rifles have seen. Don't get me wrong, the jeweling is gorgeous. I'd just be too afraid to shoot it.

    use grease (wilson or cheaper yet high temp wheel bearing) instead of oil/ clp and you won't have to worry about this.
