Finally added a conversion to my humble collection!
The gun store close to my house here in Fort Worth just also happens to maintain a small inventory of guns for the CAS crowd. Even though I have never participated in cowboy action shooting, I’ve always loved guns of the Old West. I saw this Uberti 1871 Richards-Mason 38 conversion (4-3/4” barrel) and had to have it.
One nagging question sombody can answer for me - and I may just be paranoid; the box clearly says it’s 38 special, but the barrel is stamped “38 Colt & 38 S&W SPEC”. This does mean “normal”, modern 38 special, right? Does that mean it can shoot 38 Colt and 38 special? The instructons simply say to use only the caliber the gun is made for.
I plan to make a nice, wall-mounted display case to show them off - similar to the presentation cases I built and posted on all those years ago (seems like years anyhow).
