1952 FN High Power
That is the prettiest Hi-power I've ever seen. I've spent 15 or 20 years trying to buy one but they just don't fit my hand correctly. I've been so close I've had my checkbook out in a gun shop trying to write out the payment, but just couldn't. But if I'd seen one that pretty, I wouldn't have hesitated. Thank you, Flusher. That is the prettiest HP I have ever seen. Ever. I am going to congratulate myself for starting this thread, solely because if "flushed" out that photo and gun. There are many other nice ones here, but that is spectacular.

my local dealer just got a lot of very nice ones in... I considered picking one up... they are some of the nicest I've seen... but the ammo prices on Midway... scaired me off

but I did see loading dies for 32-20 brass... a bit off topic, but has anyone tried reloading 32-20 brass for these revolvers ??? any drawbacks ???

Kel-Tec didn't invent the tiny, tiny ones....

Here's a C&R find. Above the Kel-Tec in the picture is a US Revolver Co. 7 shot DA .22. It eats Aguila Super Maximums quite nicely, is pretty accurate and is a great pocket gun. It does just fine for a "get off me" gun.

Oh yeah: Finally, a C&R forum! Yes!

Okay I will play too. I have some more that I do not have photos of yet. I think they are a Siamese Mauser and a Chilean 7mm Mauser. Seem like I have left something else out alos.

I was very impressed with your Nagant tree. Do you shoot them often? If so, I'll bet that the pointer finger on your shooting hand is so well muscled by now that it could double as a tow chain hook. Yuk, yuk.

Search, I did a thread on reloading for Nagants which Tamara should find and make a sticky, since Nagants are the best pre 1900 revolvers made (take that Colt and webley)

Here's my little contribution:

1893 Turk Mauser 8mm (really got it because it was only $100, and I thought the Arabic date and inscription was cool, and something a little different for my collection)



1900 M96 C.G. Swede Mauser-by far my best condition, most valuable, best shooting C&R.The pic really doesnt do it justice with how mint this thing is.


Minty Izhmesh aresenal Russian sks from 1954 (apparently only made there in '54 and '55, so thats kinda cool)


1943 Saginaw SG M1 Carbine (my dad was an engineer at Steering Gear in Saginaw where I grew up, for 30 years-not during WWII though)

Swampghost, those dueling pistols are AWESOME! I would LOVE to have something like that. Very cool, and they look to be in pretty darn good condition too.Very nice.

I believe this one is appropriate for this thread as it was manufactured more than 50 years ago and is, at least to me, very special. My Grandfather's (1903-1979), 1953 Star Second Model F Series .22. I just acquired it this year after it sat unused for at least 30 years. Had it professionally disassembled, cleaned and checked. Fires like a dream...thanks Grandpa!





The "Y" with a small star over it (middle-left) indicates 1953 as the year of manufacture according to the table on this site.

Recently acquired S&W .38/200 British Victory revolver with Lend-Lease markings on the topstrap. Gotta get some brighter lights for my photos...









That's a Mosin-Nagant stripper clip that I'm using to hold it up.

Nagant revolvers and Mosin-Nagant rifles are like Lay's potato chips... you can't have just one. At the current prices, you just can't help buying two, or three, or six at a time.

I just picked up a 1944 Tula M44... I'll post pictures after I get all the cosmo off and put it back together.
