Nice work Doc, the one's I used to make were a snug fit on the barrel. Yes they did mar the finish after a while, but they never came off in the holster. I also made sure they were a real snug fit over the slight swelling at the end of the loading lever. They were a compromise of function over form so to speak, but then I'm not real big on pristine "looks" when it comes to a shooters finish. Here's a new Remmie I just antiqued.
