Uberti Hombre - Polished brass

Okay so I wanted my Uberti to match my Henry which has shiney brass. Soooo, I got some sandpaper, Flitz and my Dremel and presto!

and After...



I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the results!

The grips, man, what about the grips?

I've always had a fondness for brass gripstraps and walnut.

Well, yes, European walnut. But what I wanted was a photo showing the polished brass with the grips, a profile, if you will.
