This one is a good shooter too. The cased set was one of the ones that Cabelas sold in their Christmas Catalo back then. Wish Ihad bought the other sets as well.

I liked this pistol so well that I finally bought a matching one a few years ago. They've both been used in CAS and gunfight reenactments.

Sorry my pic is slightly blurry because of my cheapo camera. Sometimes it takes okay pics, other times they come out slightly blurry.

Far right, CVA, double set triggers .50 cal percussion mountain rifle.

Very top, ASM engraved nickel and gold plated 1860 army .44

2nd from top, unfired, 1 of 2 consecutively numbered Pietta fully engraved, nickel and gold, special edition, 1 of 5000, 1858 Remington.

3rd from top, nickel and gold, fluted cylinder, Pietta 1860 army .44

4th from top, the other unfired, fully engraved, nickel and gold special edition, 1 of 5000, Pietta 1858 Remy that is consecutively numbered to the 2nd one from the top.

5th from top, my cut and crowned barrel, stainless, Pietta adjustable sight target model with dark almost black grips, 1858 Remy that I have the "stainless" R&D conversion cylinder for.

#'s 6 and 7 from the top are another set of unfired, consecutively numbered, fully engraved, nickel and gold, special edition, 1 of 5000 Pietta 1858 Remys.

That all the BP guns I have right now, but watching several others on auction arms and gunbroker as we speak. Both my unfired, consecutively numbered sets of special edition, 1 of 5000, nickel and gold Pietta Remys are currently for sale on gunbroker as well as in the BST forum here. I'm a shooter, if it's too nice and collectible to shoot, I don't want it. That's why both sets are for sale. I shoot all my other ones pictured except for those two unfired sets.

Thanks! It's a 1916 Colt Single Action Army I saved and nurtured back from its life of neglect.

Hey Hardcase,
Did your Cattleman come with those nice grips, or did you get them someplace else. I'd like to get something like that for my new cattleman I just ordered (it' on it's way with rather plain looking standard walnut grips) look at me...haven't even received it yet and I'm already wanting to tinker with it

Well since I'm posting in this thread, guess I should contribute something. Even though it pales is comparison to most on here, I am most definitely NOT embarrassed by the smallness of my collection. Because this little feller is the cornerstone of my single action rebuild. I lost all of my many pistols (including a couple very nice 1911s that held special sentimental value to me) due to receiving a Christmas present from my boss. That present was being laid off at the holidays a month before my son was due to be born and we bought our 1st home.(nice timing huh?)

While she is not a true "Cowboy" gun, she is still a single action And I've enjoyed it very much, which after all is the main thing.

Ruger Stainless Single Six Hunter. 7 1/2" barrel .17HMR


Hope to have better pics posted from the range, with the rugers new Big Bubby 45LC Uberti I ordered this Saturday or Sunday (which ever the weather permits)

Well, technically, it came with them, but only because I bought it used. They're Gunfighter Grips. I like them better than the smooth grips because my doggone hands get sweaty when it's a hundred degrees outside and the checkering actually works!

EDIT:

Here's a better picture of the Cattleman (oops, it's a Cimarron Model P) with the grips.

Congrats Berdan. Nice gun, and you're right, the polished brass looks a lot better.

Trio of dwarfs

These are the last three projects I have completed.



From front to back the ASM Pocket in .36 col with five shot fluted cylinder.

G&G with the barrel shortened also in .36

And the Remington Sheriff (If there is such a thing) in .44. Grips on this revolver are geniune antler.

CM Coop,

I notice that the USFA pistols are as expensive as the Colts themselves. How are they in quality? Thanks.

Hongrn, In my opinion, and a lot of folks, USFA are some of the finest handguns made. Fit and finish are super. I love the bone color case hardened frame. They are made in the old colt factory, under the blue dome, Hartford CT. USA. They are expensive ( $1,150.00) but well worth it. Here's my .44 wearing ivories.
