New members of the herd

Two new revolvers at my house, both from board members.

SainthoodDenied supplied this Uberti Whitneyville Dragoon. This has been on the list for a while, I was hoping to find it as a 3rd gen but this was just to nice to pass up. One week later I found the 3rd gen, never fails! This is the best Uberti I have owned, much better than the earlier builds I have had.



The second revolver is a Dance Bros Confederate Texas Colt clone, supplied by MJN77. These are somewhat hard to find, made by Pietta, two version that I'm aware of and I believe there may be a third that is a rare find. What makes these unusual is the flat sided frame, no recoil shield like you find on a regular Colt. Typical round barrel found on most the 51 Navy Confederate copies. A very few of the originals had a full recoil shield.




A big thanks to both members for selling these beauties.

Yes, Thanks to Chad for selling the Walker also. Madcratebuilder, wish I
would have bought both of them. This is the best I have ever seen from
Uberti also.

My new pal, also from Chad - not bad for a 38 year old veteran (the gun, not Chad)!



There's gonna be smoke and fun tomorrow!

Thanks everyone for the great reviews, Wanted to let everyone know the proceeds went into another firearm and not something useless like bills and such. I'm headed to a gun show in the morning to see what I can find.
I'm glad everything arrived safely and everyone is happy.

Thanks again,
Chad
