Photos of Belgian Centaure

Folks,

Here are the photos of the 1860 Army (.44) which I just got back from Wayne. I am pretty thrilled with the results.

He did three pages worth of work to the pistol. Now it locks up tight and looks great.

That is a nice gun. I handled one in Maine a few years ago and passed on buying it because I didn't know what it was. That won't happen again.

1205 revolvers later mine was born. Wayne did his normal magic on yours, looks great. I think mine has had a easier life, a over size bolt had peened the cylinder pretty bad, so I think it didn't get shot very much.

Two observations

MCB,

1. These pistol from Belgium sure are nice.
2. Wayne knows his stuff.

Tnx,

Barry
