I just received my engraved, nickel and gold plated .44, 1860, ASM revolver today (Friday Feb 18).

She looks just as good if even better than in the auction pics. Each chamber indexes perfectly in line with the barrel and the timing is dead on.
So aside from decreasing the pressure on the bolt/trigger spring (which I always do to save wear on the spring and lessen ringing of the cylinder) I don't have to do any tweaking at all to it. Woo hoo!

I do notice the trigger is a little more forward in the trigger guard than on my 1860 Pietta, but it isn't a problem or anything. Trigger pull is very sweet too just like on my Pietta.

It came just in time for me to take it to a shoot that I'm going to this weekend. I'm not taking my camera (cause it's junk) but if any of the other fellas take pics I'll try to get some pics to post here.

I have the 1860 pietta army that is nickel and gold. Gold cylinder/ hammer. Nichol barrel and frame w/engraving. I bought this gun 1 year ago and it is still new in box. It is too pretty for our customers If interested at $299.00 please e-mail me at bhardy360@aol.com. And I'll provide pics and deals on some others.

Hi Hardy. Is this the revolver you are talking about? If it is, where is the engraving you spoke about? Also, does yours have the same faux ivory grips and fluted cylinder?

Hawg, I think you are confusing me with Hardy. Yes my first post in this thread showed MY (Bill Akins's) new engraved and nickel/gold plated ASM revolver, but this is me Bill Akins asking Hardy about HIS revolver he just posted about here that he wants to sell.

I was asking Hardy if the Pietta revolver he was describing that he wants to sell was the same as the one I showed in my last post that is not engraved. I have that same Pietta nickel & gold plated fluted cylinder .44 model but I was not aware that they made that same model engraved as Hardy described his is.
