Thanks for the comments!

There was also a Tingle B/p revolver many years before the ROA and supposedly even better.
Yes there was. It can be seen in the Gun Digest article at the beginning of this thread. His revolver pre-dated the ROA by 10 yrs.

the finish almost looks parkerized?
It has been refinished. It's a really flat type of finish. Not sure exactly what it is. I do like it though, it leaves no fingerprints.

Do you know if he made the barrels as well (i.e. machined and rifled them)or did he utilize someone else's blanks?
I don't think he made the barrels. I believe he got them elsewhere and modified them. (I think it talks about that in the article above).

Black Powder: Not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win...
