I'm curious Fingers . . . . . do you see any noticible differences in these compared to the '51 Navy? By that, I mean any little minute difference that you would notice if you had one of these and a '51 Navy in your hand and you fired them? I guess I'm talking about the 'function" of 'em. I know the obvious - round barrel versus octogon, etc. Just curious. I have a love affair with the '51 Navy but these really appeal to me for some reason - probably because of their history and well as their resemblence to the Navy. Don't know if I've asked this very clearly but I think you'll understand what I'm talking about.
By the way - you're right - you automatically get a "pass card" on possessing these - your g-g-granddaddy earned that right for you! Thanks!
